We are pleased to announce a number of new additions to the Safe Snack Guide.
We have added a new category entitled ‘Frozen Entrees / Appetizers / Sides / Desserts‘ which will provide many new options to busy families that must also cope with food allergies.
Please note that we are removing the listings for products from three ice cream manufacturers from the Safe Snack Guide:
- Breyers – removed due to changes in manufacture/labeling/disclosure.
Unilever, manufacturers of Breyers brand, employ the following process during a run:
- Plain flavors, such as vanilla and chocolate, are made in the first batches;
- Nuts and other add-ins are added to the same equipment in later batches;
- All equipment is washed down between runs, and the process repeats.
As the firm employs no testing between runs to ensure that allergen residue has been removed, we are removing it from the Guide.
Please note that we have updated the contents of the Safe Snack Guide.
Ready for the Big Game? Just a quick reminder that it’s easy to accommodate your guests with special dietary considerations even if they root for the opposing team! The Safe Snack Guide has hundreds of ideas ranging from everyday pretzels and potato chips to all-natural, organic, non-GMO options… all peanut and tree nut-free, most egg-free!

We have been inundated with requests for peanut/tree nut free conversation hearts, those little candy hearts with messages printed on them like “Be Mine” and “Love You” traditionally sold for Valentine’s Day. We have also had many inquiries why we do not include them in the Valentine’s Day section of the current Safe Snack Guide.
We’re happy to announce the Holiday edition of the Safe Snack Guide complete with a section of holiday-themed goodies free of peanuts, tree nuts and eggs.
Please note that we have removed the following product line from the Safe Snack Guide due to manufacturing, labeling, and/or disclosure changes by the manufacturer:
- Terra Exotic Vegetable Chips
Please note that we have made changes to the contents of the Safe Snack Guide.
Those little orange and black bags of Utz Halloween Shaped Pretzels have long been a trusted “go to” staple for families concerned with peanut and tree nut cross-contamination. This year, boxes of the product were erroneously labeled “Made in a Peanut and Tree Nut Facility“, omitting the word Free. The individual 1/2 oz bags of product within the boxes are labeled correctly as “Made in a Peanut and Tree Nut Free Facility”.
Please take a few minutes to read about the many additions and changes in this edition of the Safe Snack Guide.
Halloween 2013 Edition!
In addition to our usual goodies, you’ll find a whole page of Halloween treats – perfect for trick-or-treat or nut-free classroom celebrations. New this year, we provide size/packaging information and indicate whether the items are individually wrapped!
