Saw new commercial last night on t.v. for Peanut Free Quaker Chewy Ganola Bars. So I went to find them today. There are 8 varieties. In BIG letters on the box, MADE IN PEANUT FREE FACILITY.

It's great to see more companies comming out with Peanut FREE FACILITIES.

Great for Quaker!!

I know!--Isn't this just Awesome. This was always one of the first complaints each year from parents in our peanut\nut free school. No granola bars that were safe--now we have some! Just one less thing to worry about. YAY! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Is this specific to Canada? Does anyone know if they're available in the U.S?

hi Adele - they are Canada specific...all the US Quaker granola bars (minus some of the cereal-type bars) have a may contain, contain, or same equip warning.

Yes, it was a decision made by Quaker Canada.
Maybe Quaker USA would consider this in the future as well?

I wrote and asked them. I didn't get a canned email back, which was nice. They said they understand the situation and would like to provide peanut/tree nut free bars eventually, and are watching how the Canadian effort goes, and are considering how to have a pn/tn free facility.

I too was very excited about this new product - I didn't beleive the first person who told me about them. They are very yummy, hopefully the US Quaker will follow.
If anyone is in Minot or area I'll bring some when I come in September!

During the last few weeks of school all the stores in my neighbourhood were sold out of the peanut-free - but still had loads of the other stuff.
I have found a definite improvement in life with these bars. My son's school bans peanut/nuts - so for parties, treats, whatever, parents always send in Nestle peanut-free chocolate. (Well, other then one parent who sends in Chapman's Ice-cream sandwiches, lol) Anyway, all the parents seem very happy to have a non-chocolate alternative to send to school. Some of the Chewy's have chocolate chips, but it's not as bad as an entire chocolate bar.

I can't find the Quaker Chewy granola bars that your talking about....All of the boxes I see say the normal "made in a facility that process nuts....."

That's because the lucky people who have these are in Canada. I'm guessing you are in the US. THose Canadians get all the good stuff!
