The other day I had a craving for chocolate and went overboard ordered $37.00 worth of chocolate!! When it came,my year without it got the better of me. I started chowing down the caramel turtles and promptly broke my bridge. That didn't stop me. I had to finally freeze the remainder of it to stop eating it. The next day I bit into a hard chocolate bar and broke my front tooth. So when you read Vermont nut free is expensive, BELIEVE IT!!!

OMGGGGGGGG! Okay, I'm trying not to laugh at your troubles, but WOW!!!!! I hope you wrote to Vermont Nut Free with your story! (Gee, maybe they'll send you a complimentary something!! LOL!)
I'm going through dental hell (for the past three months) with a broken tooth-root canal-crown issue, so I can relate ..... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
Anyway, my condolences!!!

Sorry, but I laughed very hard at your troubles!! It is really not funny, but you told it well. I am terrified of the dentist and actually have a phobia. I have dreams like what you just wrote, and am sure it is what will finally get me going back regularly again! I hope it all was worth the indulgence???? BUMMER does not even begin to describe it, huh? Ouch. becca

I really laughed at your story. Once, my DH and I put a "box of chocs" in the freezer - they had been a hostess gift to us after a large party and that seemed the best way to deal with them at the time. When I had a choc craving later I found that the box contained a metal wine stopper with a golfer charm on it! We had had it in the fridge for months. And I still wanted chocolate!
But as a plug for Vermont Nut Free - there chocolate products are not only safe, but VERY well-made. And the variety is super. Thank God they are there!!!

OMG, dying laughing here! So sorry...the visual got the best of me! Oh Pat, I am so sorry you went through pain to eat Vermont Nut-Free Chocolate but hope it was so worth it!
I apologize in advance for this post but visualizing you scarfing down a caramel turtle is too much to ask to keep a straight *post*. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] Your dentist is going to love you! Can you spell *today's portion of your dental visit is* boys and girls?

OMG, I am so, soooo sorry! I am sure you enjoyed every expensive bite though.

Stay Safe!

My son is allergic to all legumes, and he eats Vermont Nut Free all of the time. If I were you I would still give them a call because I never questioned it before. There isn't anything that we have got from them that we do not like. Everything is so good. My family acctually gets their chocolate from them now because it is so much better than what you can get in the stores. Please let us know what they say about Legumes.

You can e-mail them and they are very helpful. I had some questions and they answered them completely.

Raspberry Cream Truffles are my favorite, they also have good caramels. The turtle things aren't really good --- I was curious and got them, and it's something I could easily make at home with rice krispies, caramel, mini-marshmallows, and chocolate.
VNF is my birthday treat to myself this year since they are expensive and shipping to Tucson (even in november) required the insulated pack and it's costly.
Oh - I also like the crispy chocolate bars...how I miss those! (Nestle's Crunch growing up used to be ok)
