kit kats

Page 1 of 2Next

I ate one at lunch almost every day while in high school, until one day I flipped it over and saw the warning. I never had a problem. I think I saw someone else here eats them eats them with no problem. I was getting tired of them when the warning came out so even if they didnt plop the warning on them I probably would have stopped buying them anyway.

i only let my two pa girls eat the kit kat bites (which, as you said, have no ""may contain"" or ""processed in a facility...."" warning on them). we dont let them eat regular kit kats, just in case.

I used to eat them all the time before the ""same facility as peanuts"" warning. Then the warning came out, oh geez, some 6 years ago now? right? Then I stopped...then I really missed them. Sometime last year I called and asked specifically about them.

Pretty much, the cs rep was like, ""do you know how big the facility is? multiple floors/rooms, etc?"" So I asked her to probe further, and she said that it is not shared equip, and further, that the Kit Kats are made in a room that doesnt have peanuts or nuts...that the peanut candy is manufactured clear across the facility in a whole other area.

So...I eat them. My comfort zone allows me to eat ""same facility as"" on some products after Ive called and verified that the peanut spewing equip is not near the non-peanut equip. Everytime, Ive been told that if the equip is next to a peanut/nut/other allergen containing equip, then it is common practice to call it ""shared equip"" due to oversprays, spills, vapors, food dust, etc.

So, I eat US made Kit Kats.

I dont allow DD to eat regular sized KitKats but, Ive called Hershey about the KitKat bites and as long as they dont have a warning (havent found one bag that does) I buy them.

Just bought a kit kat bar yesterday. Havent gotten around to eating it yet (because I also splurged and bought a huge bag of gummy bears too. and I have a giant bag of kissables here too. bad me.) I think Ive almost forgotten what they taste like. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

If you not feeling confident about the ""same facility"" warning, Nestle makes a KitKat in Canada that is peanut free and tree nut free. PeanutFreePlanet.com sells them on their website. Not sure if you can get them elsewhere on the internet, but it might be worth the look. Hope that helps.
