Skeeter--Totally Nut Free Snacks #nutfree #allergies #foodallergies

Constantly I am reminded by my kids' school to not send snacks in that contain peanuts.  That includes anything made in a facility that even handles peanuts in other foods.  There are a couple students that are extremely sensitive to peanuts.  How I feel for those parents.  Food allergies can be a scary, life-threatening thing for some people.

When it was time to send in treats for my daughter's birthday, my choices of sweets that contain no nuts nor were produced in a facility that handles nuts were limited.   And of course, those options had been exhausted by other students birthdays.  How I wish I had known about Skeeter Snacks.  They are totally nut-free made in a nut-free facility.  Their totally delicious cookies come in four different varieties, including Chocolate Chunk, Golden Oatmeal, SkeeterDoodle and Chocolate3.  Yes, that is chocolate cubed--chocolate cookies with chocolate chips and chocolate chunks!

 Sounds good, right?  But how do they taste?  My taste testers were happy to take part in this project and really enjoyed the cookies.  My tastes can be a bit more discerning, but even I really enjoyed them!  They are definitely quality cookies.  The oatmeal ones had such a nice flavor and were even chewy and contained raisins!  Of course, the Chocolate3 were my favorites!   The SkeeterDoodle was snickerdoodle tasty.  I didn't think to do this before eating them, but I bet if you popped them in the microwave for a few seconds, they would tasted like they just came  fresh out of the oven. 

The cookies also came individually wrapped with two cookies per package.  This is great for passing them out to children at school or tucking some in the Easter baskets for a nice treat.  The MSRP is $3.99 for a 2 pack box (12 cookies).

By the way, Skeeter is the only squirrel known to have nut allergies.  While all of his friends spent the day looking for nuts, Skeeter felt left out so he decided to do something about it.  This is a story about two dads with children who have nut allergies who wanted to give something to children with nut allergies that tasted good and was safe for them to eat.  Now no one has to feel left out!
