Soybean crayons?
« on: October 17, 2014, 11:11:36 PM »
Has anyone else seen these?

I've seen them at restaurants twice now.  I showed them to my SIL, who said "Ooh, natural crayons!"  Of course, my initial reaction was to wonder about soy allergies.

Soy isn't one of our concerns, but I was wondering what parents of soy allergic kids thought of them.

They don't come in my house.

In fact, unless I call, only Crayola crayons come in the house.

DH histamine intolerance
Me?  Some days it seems like everything.

They are a problem for at least some soy-allergic people.  DH gets eczema on his hands and wrists from them. 
Resistance isn't futile.  It's voltage divided by current.
