Just saw these and thought some folks would be interested. I.M. Healthy now has snack packs - plastic packs with soy nut butter and pretzel sticks - just like the cracker and cheese ones. I know some of you don't send the soy nut sandwiches into school (to avoid confusion), but these would be marked on the package as being soy butter.

Available via the internet at [url="http://www.nutbusters.com."]www.nutbusters.com.[/url] I can buy the jars of I.M. Healthy soy nut butter at my grocery, but haven't seen these there yet.

Enjoy!

Wow, and it says free shipping!! That is only $0.50 each snack pack, which seems reasonable for the convenience. I might have to think about trying these. I do not send soy butter to school, but we do use it alot, and my dd is not always fond of a sandwich. Thanks for posting this.
Do you order any of the other products? I noticed only this one vouches for PN free processing, but their Harvest mix looks yummy. becca

I buy all my soy butter products at nutbusters. They have the best customer service of any online store I have shopped at (and I am an online shopping junkie) and if you have any questions you can email the owner and he'll get back to you quickly. Last time I ordered a case of soynut butter it was on my doorstep the next day.

This sounds totally amazing!!! Maybe this will be the company to finally market the Reeses style soybean butter cups I've been hoping for. I will order some of these snack packs when we get back from our Thanksgiving trip. Thanks for sharing this great news! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Miriam

These are now available at my local Kroger!!! I was so happy today when I saw them. They only cost $1.99 for six of them.

I have tried the soynut butter on my two year old and he didn't like it very much. Does anyone know if there is an almond butter out there that is safe. He tested negative to tree nuts, except brazil nut (not sure if that is a tree nut). I have heard the almond butter is really good. Thanks

brazil nut is a tree nut. if you are allergic to one tree nut, the recommendation is to avoid all tree nuts.
does anyone know if the pretzels in this pack are safe?

This does like a fun alternative!
The site does say
"Both the soynut butter AND the pretzel sticks are
processed on and packaged on
PEANUT FREE and TREE NUT FREE
machinery."
Do you know if there are any milk products in the pretzels? (I've seen butter as an ingredient in some pretzels)

KarenD, I'd caution you to avoid all tree nuts. I have heard repeatedly (our allergist, FAAN, this site, etc.) that if you are allergic to one tree nut (or even just peanuts) you should avoid all tree nuts. This is for a number of reasons: one is that tree nuts (and peanuts, too!) tend to be processed on the same equipment and at the same factory. There is huge opportunity for cross contamination. Another reason is that tree nut allergies are as life threating (and as life long) as peanut allergies, and can develop at any time. A person with one allergy is much more likely, than the average person, to develop another. A third reason is that there can be a lot of uncertainty about what type of nuts are in a product. I have read about severe reactions, even death, being caused by a person eating something that they thought had the type of nut that they weren't allergic to - but it turned out to be the type that they actually were allergic to.
I don't know how old your child is or how long you've been safely managing with your comfort zone. So, please forgive my unsolicited information if I have offended you. I just want to offer you some information that you may not have known, in the hopes that it will save you and your child from future difficulties.
Take care, Miriam
p.s. Sorry, I just re-read that your son is two. All the more reason to strictly avoid all tree nuts. Most allergy experts now advise delaying the introduction of peanuts and tree nuts until at least after age 3 to increase the chances of avoiding allergy.

The chances of finding an almond butter that is not produced in the same plant as peanuts is probably slim to none anyway.
Have you tried the honey creamy soybutter? My 2 year old does not like the regular but he loves the honey version.
