Chocolate dinosaurs!

My brother bought my son some white chocolate dinosaurs for Christmas. A great gift given the child loves his chocolate and, being an avid Peppa Pig fan, all things “Dinosaur… rarrrr!”.

The chocolates were presented in a plastic bag tied with a ribbon. They had a (nut free) ingredients list attached. However, my first thought was “uh-oh, these look a bit posh and aren’t what you would normally consider ‘pre-packed’ … if they’ve been loose on display and scooped into the bag, there’s a risk of cross-contamination”.

When I spoke to my brother, he told me they’d come from the Nut Free Chocolatier, whose founder, Claire, is a nut allergy sufferer. Suffice to say, the dinosaurs were a big hit…

The Nut Free Chocolatier: we salute you!

Update (23 September 2013)

As at 23 September 2013, the Nut Free Chocolatier’s website (see link above) states:

“We would like to thank all of our loyal customers and advise that we are now closed.
We will re-open in the USA and will be in touch when this happens,
kind wishes, Claire”
