BAD Bad news. I heard that Ritas Ice (www.ritasice.com) has a test Store that is using Reeses Pieces and Peanut butter cups as toppings. This is direct potential Peanut contamination interaction that I will immediately have to ban Ritas for my child. Unless I get the huge email campaign to convince them to stay Peanut/nut safe. So please be careful.

I haven't heard of Rita's Ice. I guess we won't be trying them. It's too bad they had to change from being peanut free.

New this year: Rita's is using peanut butter candies and making chocolate peanut butter ice. no longer safe for those w/ pb allergies. high chance of cross-contamination. it's on their web site under nutritional FAQ

I am in Cali. and it seems that all awesome things (excluding sunny beaches and Hollywood sensations) are in the eastern US. Even my favorite longboard skateboard company is based there. And most of the innovative peanut free stores and restaurants are seemingly only located in the east. Darn the bad luck.
