SF, welcome! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
No, I haven't actually ordered from Twin Cove. I think it's mostly because I stick to the "safe" Nestle Canada line of chocolates and haven't felt the need to expand our chocolate range yet.
I have been in touch with Twin Cove by e-mail and I do find them really nice to deal with even when you're not ordering (for what that's worth [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] )
Also, great to re-raise this just in time for Easter! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Cindy,
Didn't I get an alert saying that Nestle of Canada was no longer going to promise "peanut free"? I have an email alert dated 4/21/01 from peanutallergy.com stating this. They were supposed to change over on 1/01/02.

pattmommy, yes, you would have gotten an alert last year around this time. I remember the actual day that Nestle Canada made the initial decision to no longer make Smarties and their array of "safe" chocolate bars in a "peanut free" facility. I got an e-mail from another PA parent and just sat here stunned and crying.
However, due to the diligence of difference allergy associations in Canada, MedicAlert Canada, and I truly believe the PA community, not only Canadian, but throughout America and elsewhere, we were able to get Nestle Canada to reverse their decision. There was still product marked "may contain" out there as they started marking the product after their initial decision so that we would all become prepared for the actual unsafeness of their product by January of 2002.
Again, I truly believe that it was the overwhelming response they received from PA parents and individuals, particularly in countries other than Canada, where people haven't even tried a Smartie that got Nestle Canada to re-think their decision.
Smarties and their other array of "peanut free" chocolate bars are still made in the "peanut free" facility. I believe this decision was financially beneficial for the company when they thought about it. Also, they did come out with a new, almost gourmet line of chocolate bars, all complete with nuts, which I'm sure they'll do well with (not made in the same plant).
Sorry, I hope that was clear. I know that the situation was quite confusing for some time. For example, when the packages were first marked "may contain", even though I knew they were "safe", I couldn't purchase them becuase I have always told my PA son that we would never have a "may contain" product in the house and he does re-read labels to both check for himself and I believe to check on me! LOL!
