Until I call to find out details this kills it for us! "This product is manufactured on shared equipment also used for dairy, soy, corn and wheat", not their fault that my son is so allergic, but I am really tired of not finding truly safe chips for...

Our daughter is allergic to milk, eggs, peanuts (we stay away from tree nuts and sesame too) and we found some great chips at Whole Foods that were safe for her. Good luck!

Wooky's mama: Have you tried making your own corn or potato chips? It's pretty easy and nice to finally be able to relax when your LO eats something

They sound delicious! Has anyone checked on whether they test for any of the other allergens besides gluten?

That's cool! I've done swirl cakes, but I've never used this technique. I love the "zebra" effect.

So excited to see this! DS will be in love with pizza! I'm sure the cost will be high, but for a treat once in a while this would be great. The only other product I want from them is string cheese.

I have tried to make my own sunflower seed butter in my food processor, but even after a looong time in the processor and a fair amount of canola, I still get a "paste" so thick you can slice it! What am I doing wrong? Do I just need a better...

I haven't made my own but we buy Sunbutter. I find it is quite thick and has a drier, more grainy consistency than peanut butter.

We found these yesterday at our local Whole Foods. We just tried them and give them two thumbs up. My daughter is so excited to have her own popcorn!

I would opt for flax meal instead of flax seeds just to make sure that they soak in the liquid and mix through without an errant seed remaining "crunchy". Flax and chia are very similar and both can be used to make "goo" to replace eggs.

I really hope these become available in more areas, or at very least for online shopping! I really don't care for soy or mushroom based fake meats, plus most aren't gluten free anyway, so I am really excited about this!

On their Facebook wall, there is mention that they are going to New York next.
