A good friend of ours just arrived from Canada with 2 boxes of Nestle Canada's "Safe to Share" Halloween chocolate bars. Each bar has a special label that guarantees that it is nut and peanut free. Amazing. When are the Americans going to catch on?

Yes it is wonderful! I ordered the Halloween sizes from Panhandle Premium (thanks Erik for the tip). I was so impresed with the labeling on the box and on each individual bar. I must say at least once a week "Oh, I wish I lived in Canada!"

Although Canada is a great place to live, sometimes Nestle skrews up. Two years ago I purchased the Nestle Snartie Eggs for my PA son. There was no visable warning on the package. After 5 min of eating a couple eggs, my son was experiencing a reaction. After our 10hour visit to the hospital on Easter morning...we found a small warning under the flap of the packaging "packaged in a peanut enviroment" I was so angry I phoned,emailed and federated letters to Nestle and now there are warnings on the front of that package.
I love Nestle and I'm glad that they make chocolate that is safe for my son to have but this experience has made me not trust any company...which I think is a good thing!!
Take care,

Today a friend of mine purchased for me from canada, smarties both large boxes and snack size, when I looked on the ing.list for the snack size there was a may contain peanut or nut traces listed. I called Nestle CA and they said that in Jan 2001 they were going to use nuts in the factory, however in June 2001 due to an overwhelming consumer response they decided to keep that plant nut free, However they began packaging bags and boxes with the may contain label, with the expectation of nuts in the plant. Needless to say they assured me that the candy is safe and no nuts have entered the plant, However that tells you how old the candy is? not that I mind, hey its still nut free!

Hi Zach's Mom...
Yes.. I remember seeign those snack size boxes of Smarties, etc with the nut warning last summer... but I haven't seen any like that for almost a year now....
Where did your friend buy that candy?? hehe Even if it is a bit old it still will taste fine... your friend must have been in some small town where the turnover in the general store is very slow! haha
Enjoy the Smarties... they are great [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
