So my local grocery store has a nutritionist in the produce section every couple weeks.  Today was doing a gluten free display with samples and this protein drink (the premade one in the bottle) was one of them.  I tried the vanilla and chocolate...chocolate was better, had less of a funny taste.  She gave me a chocolate one to bring home and DS liked it so I will buy a couple of the bottles and see if he really likes it or if it's just a one time thing.

So it does say their is sunflower oil in it.

It does say on the bottle that it is "Manufactured in a facility that also processes milk, soy, wheat, almonds and peanuts. Our facility tests for the presence of these allergens processed from the proceeding production run. We independently test our ingredients and final products for the top eight allergens. Every lot. Every time."

Here's their testing info...
Schools and Food Allergies / School held mass "epipen class."

My son came home from school and informed me that he had to go to the media center because of his peanut allergy. There was a group of about 30 kids. Apparently all of the kids with allergies/epipens were sent there and the nurse held a "class" on how to use their epipen, what to do if they have a reaction blah blah blah. I had no knowledge it was going to happen and was supplied zero information.

I'm wondering how all of you would feel about this?

My son is 6th grade and in middle school.

Yup, AuviQ is a great product. I wish we had a couple of more options though.

Phooey, I went to book some tours for our upcoming trip and was told they are not recommended for people with peanut allergies.   :pout:  They only list hay, dust, and stinging insects on their website as potential allergens, but two people over the phone have mentioned peanuts.

No 'Caring for Elephants' or 'Up Close with Rhinos' tours for us.

We normally pick one or two additional tours/activities when we visit Disney.  This time it will be runDisney, but I was hoping to add these as well.  Time to think of something else.

Some around Christmas are not safe...I think it was the filled plastic candy cane...not that they are in the baking section.

They have been in the baking aisle at Stop & Shop for a couple of years (they were in the one I shopped at before moving 2 years ago, and are in mine here).  If I knew that others were looking for them, I would have let you know.

I knew they were nut free. Didn’t know about gluten. That’s great!

In the baking section of Stop and Shop they had Sixlets with the sprinkles, icing, etc.  The label calls them “Celebration Sixlets” by Frey.  Label states Nut and Gluten Free.

I’ll call this week, but these would be a fun addition to brownies or cupcakes!
