May 6, 2010 - PRLog -- Pittsburgh, PA- The increase in people (especially children) suffering from severe food allergies is something our country has to be aware of.  The CDC estimates that from 1997 to 2007 the number of children with food allergies increased 18%.  When a child has a severe food allergy it is not only the child that is affected, but the child’s family, friends, and school/daycare must be acutely aware of that child’s allergy.  We’re Not Nutz, (www.were-not-nutz.com) a peanut and tree nut allergen free specialty chocolate maker in Pittsburgh, PA now has the solution for parents searching for peanut and tree nut free treats.

We’re Not Nutz has introduced five original delicious nut free chocolate covered products with more on the way to help make the lives of those living with the tree nut and peanut allergy a little easier and a whole lot sweeter.  The five items currently available from We’re Not Nutz are the Chocolate Covered S’more, Chocolate Covered Oreos®, Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Chocolate Covered Grahams, and Chocolate Covered Krispies.  Each item is hand dipped in We’re Not Nutz’ “Crazy Delicious Nut-Free Chocolate™” as the company likes to say.  We’re Not Nutz also has very intricately crafted seasonal items for holidays such as Easter and Christmas.
All We’re Not Nutz treats are made in their own dedicated nut-free facility.  Four times per year the company verifies with the suppliers of their ingredients that those company’s products do not contain, and/or are not made in the same facility, and/or on the same line as products that contain nuts.  We’re Not Nutz also has its own in house testing system to ensure the safety of its products.  

The company was started because several years ago co-founder Kathie Williamson discovered that her son Colin had a severe peanut and tree nut allergy.  After years of bearing the arduous task of reading every food product label and making sure every relative and family friend had “safe” snacks for Colin to eat, Kathie decided to start making her own nut-free chocolate covered treats.  From that day forward, Colin had his own special chocolate snacks that he knew were safe, and allowed him and the people around him to enjoy chocolate, worry free.  

When One tastes these chocolate covered treats you can feel the love and dedication that goes into these scrumptious goodies.  “We use premium chocolate and everything is hand-dipped”, says Co-founder Corry Williamson.  “Our chocolate covered treats are not only for those with a nut allergy, but for everyone who loves chocolate.  Many of our customers are actually people who do not have, or live with someone who has a nut allergy.  I think that says a lot about our quality and taste.”

We’re Not Nutz also believes in furthering food allergy awareness and donates a portion of their proceeds to organizations that support this cause and works with these organizations through events and programs to spread the awareness.  Knowing that an estimated 12 million Americans suffer from severe food allergies, We’re Not Nutz' commercial and charitable efforts are definitely needed and give their company a higher purpose.

We’re Not Nutz Crazy Delicious Nut-Free Chocolate Covered Treats can be found online at www.were-not-nutz.com and www.peanutfreeplanet.com.  You can also find their treats in several Pittsburgh, PA area grocery stores and soon in select retailers nationwide.
