Are Kit Kat’s in Canada still free of nuts? If so how can I order them?

If you find out if they are safe, I can mail you some.

I do eat their KitKat. It does not have the peanut free logo, other than on mini (Halloween size), so I searched their web site.

We’re committed to our Peanut Free promise. So much so that we put our ‘Peanut Free’ logo on our mini-sized favourites (KITKAT, COFFEE CRISP, AERO and SMARTIES) exclusively made in our Peanut Free facility.

We work hard to ensure transparent labeling on all of our products. Canada has 10 priority allergens that must be labeled on all packaging. If the product contains any of the following, or if there is chance for cross contamination, you can find it in the ingredients or “May Contains” statement on the label.

Peanuts
Tree nuts (almonds, brazil nuts, cashew nuts, hazel nuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachio, walnuts)
Sesame seeds
Milk
Eggs
Fish, crustaceans, shellfish
Soy
Wheat
Sulfites (any more than 10ppms)
Mustard                                                                                     
We encourage you to read the label as it will always have the most up-to-date information on it.

Only, they don’t specify what they think constitutes a risk for cross contact: Same facility? Shared but cleaned lines? Shared and not cleaned lines?  It depends on your comfort level whether you deem that (vague) statement as safe or not.

As SL says, some of their items have the peanut free logo, but not the regular ones.

Only the mini bars have the peanut free logo.

I have seen many of their products with a “may contain” warning for nuts. I cannot eat ANY of their ice cream.

I do eat their regular full size kitkat. But when I see different flavours, I triple check the ingredients and check where they are made. If they read safe and are from Canada or UK I will eat them.

I ended up ordering them from Amazon. My son will be very happy on Christmas morning.

funny....my son gets a special “may contain” chocolate that he loves but we don’t usually have in the house. We buy a big box with individual size bags in it. And that’s his special Christmas candy.

To clarify: he has no food allergies. I do.
