...we've got moonpies, how 'bout you?

Okay. Had to be a little goofy there. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I'd been a little antsy about DH's travel this week -- flew out yesterday, flies back tonight -- UNTIL -- I figured out a Real Purpose for his trip...

Moonpie reconnaisance!!! Objective has been accomplished -- the goods are in his possession as I type. Unless the checker was really slow -- DH called from a grocery store on the way to the airport...

He was teaching a special class at his former grad school -- quite nice that they asked him. Apparently he is actually the world expert in this area...despite being decades younger than most of his "peers"! People came from all over the country for this class.

Professional success, and moonpies, too. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Now if I could just persuade him to stash a Sundrop in his carry-on... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Hi! Moonpies are a chocolate/graham cracker/marshmallow cookie. They also come with a vanilla flavored coating, or a banana filling, or a few other combinations. I've only ever had the regular ones -- the other flavors are described on their website.
Someone mentioned them here a few days ago -- if you do a search for "Moonpie", you should find three different threads -- the information from the factory indicating that they are peanut and egg free. DS is allergic to both, so I was pleased to find something else to add to our "fun snack" arsenal!
We generally eat a very healthy diet -- DS' favorite beverage is carrot juice, and his favorite snack is orange-zucchini bread, if that tells you anything! I try to keep some more mainstream snack stuff on hand, though, ever since one of his more outspoken little friends declared carrot juice "yucky". Not that anyone was asking her to drink it -- or asking for her opinion about it... :P
So -- think lunchbox treat, and you'll be pretty close. Just something fun to have on hand. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
*As to where to find them -- at the moment, I can only vouch for the Bi-Lo grocery store in Manchester, TN. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
I believe they're produced in Chattanooga. Their website ([url]http://www.moonpie.com[/url]) has a link to another site where you can order them.

I love moonpies eat them all the time! Partial to the chocolate ones myself! The other brands (manuf.) are no where near the real thing!

Where do you buy the carrot juice? What brand is safe?

We've used the Horizon Organic Orange Carrot juice for several years without any problem. M goes through probably three half gallons every two weeks.
I don't specifically remember calling about it, so I'd encourage you to do so [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] -- but M is RAST class 5, and contact (and quite likely airborne) reactive -- so I think it's probably safe to consider it peanut-free... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] They do have a strawberry lemonade (though I've never seen it in half-gallons) if strawberries are a problem.
We buy it at Wild Oats. You also might try Raley's or Albertson's -- they carry Horizon milk, and could probably order the juice for you. If you do have a Wild Oats, keep an eye on their sale fliers (or check their website) -- Horizon juices come on sale every three or four months, and they freeze well!
