Some of you may remember ds' 1st grade class is doing a unit on China which includes a trip to a Chinese Restaurant (not to eat, just to see what they do) and a Chinese Feast later in the week.

I am trying to see if anybody has experience with the pre-packaged Chinese food (either frozen or kits like LaChoy)? I am planning on going to the store/calling manufacturers, but any experiences you might be able to share would be great.

Here is the list of foods that I am trying to find for the Chinese feast:

-Egg rolls (preferably the bite size ones)
-Chow Mein noodles
-Fortune cookies

(they also serve rice (which I know I can get),Chinese Veggies (ds HATES veggies, so I am not going to knock myself out over those), & fried chicken wings (I'll just get tyson).

Any help would be greatly appreciated. DS is PA only.

I love Chinese food, but we have not had success finding egg rolls at our Safeway/Dominicks that are peanut free. However, when we are in the mood for Chinese at home, we ususally get Costco Ling-Ling pot stickers, and make chinese veggies with chicken stir fry. Hamburger Helper/Chicken Helper has a chicken fried rice mix that is pretty tasty as well.

I neve gave trhen to my dd(she has no interest) but we enjoy the potstickers in a large yellow bag from Costco. I forget the brand but I bet it is the above mentioned as well. Comes with a dipping sauce as well. It might be quick to check with a phone call. becca

We are Chinese and we enjoyed the potstickers in a large yellow bag from Costco and never had any problems. After I found out that my daughter is allergic to walnut last year, I wrote to this company through email. Days later they sent me a letter. I could not remember what they said, but they did not suggest us to use their products. I stopped using the potstickers.

Has anyone checked on these lately ? The brand is Ling Ling and I bought a huge bag yesterday. Their web site has a small section about allergens and they mention soy, egg etc but no mention of nuts. Have emailed them but not sure how long they will take to get back !

Let me know what they say. I almost bought them, but noticed there was no warning. They taste awesome.
