What allergens are you free of?
We are thrilled to be able to say we offer 100% Peanut, Tree Nut, and Sesame Free Fudge!
What allergens do you use?
We do use some of the Top 8 Allergens in our recipes. Every flavor includes Egg and Dairy. Some flavors include Wheat and Soy, and because we use the same equipment for all flavors, all flavors have the risk of cross contact with Wheat and Soy. We do not use Fish or Shellfish in any of our Fudge. However, ingredients have not necessarily been vetted for cross-contact via shared equipment from manufacturers for Fish and Shellfish. That being said, in obtaining allergen information, many of these manufacturers label for Top 8. We will not use anything labeled for Fish or Shellfish, and given the types of ingredients we use, it is unlikely contact with Fish or Shellfish would occur in the manufacturing of our ingredients, but not guaranteed.
Do you use shared equipment?
We do not use any shared equipment with Peanuts, Tree Nuts, or Sesame. Each individual ingredient that we use has been carefully chosen, with confirmation from the manufacturer, that they are produced 100% free of shared equipment with these allergens (regarding Coconut - please see question below). Some ingredients come from facilities that include these allergens, but much time and effort has been put into confirming there is no shared equipment.
What about Coconut?
None of our flavors contain Coconut as an ingredient. We do have two "Coconut" flavors (Mocha Coconut and Coconut Truffle) - although these flavors used to contain real shredded coconut, we have now eliminated that ingredient entirely. The coconut flavor was never derived from real coconut, so there has been no change there. The "coconut" is artificial flavoring.
Additionally, many of our other flavors contain flavoring. Some are natural, some artificial. These flavorings are the only ingredient we use that may share equipment with Coconut from the manufacturers we source it from. Again, we do not use any Coconut as an ingredient. Our equipment does not come in contact with any Coconut. However, some of the flavorings we use may share equipment with Coconut at the manufacturer level. Please use your discretion regarding your comfort level given these details. We are still working on replacing the affected flavorings.
If you have any questions regarding these or other allergens please do not hesitate to contact us! We live the allergy life each and every day, so we get it. We would rather field a million questions to ease your mind before a purchase, than you take a risk.
