Nutphrees Cupcakes

We had an awesome 4th of July – and I really hope you did, too. We had a big discovery while on vacation; NUTPHREES CUPCAKES are now being distributed to the lovely state of Wisconsin.

This is a huge.

A real game changer.

Safe nut-free baked items will now be available for pick up at your local grocery store for birthdays + parties. I’m so thankful for this brand, Nutphrees, from the Chicagoland area. I’ve talked about them before on nutfreemomblog and this is my other favorite feature of this evolving company, delivery.

In Madison, WI, they are at Whole Foods. In the Milwaukee area, they are at a few more stores. Click the link above to type in your zip code to find their treats closest to you!

While we were in Milwaukee for the week, we got to check out the new Fresh Thyme market off Brady Street. It was amazing, which is where we found these Nutphrees cupcakes. They had a variety of flavors, and Chloe chose a 4-pack for $8.10. She had chocolate and vanilla. Look at that happy face. This is her FIRST EVER bakery treat from a store. She’s so excited! And proud brother Carter, he had to walk away with something too. He found a “5” candle for his birthday next week 🙂 Such happy little kiddos.

We found a few more nut free treats that we’ll be posting to Instagram 🙂

Have a great week! Tomorrow is MONDAY, back to the grind + summer kiddo schedule.

Nut Free Mom Box

20180608_161357

The wait is OVER! Nut Free Mom Box is available now. This is personal. From me to you.

Let me help you reduce the stress for your next family vacation, trip to Disney, Grandma + Grandpa’s house. Wherever you are going, let me help take that “extra snack packing” element off your shoulders. There is already so much to do before traveling, the allergy kit doesn’t have to be something you worry about.

The Nut Free Mom Box is 100% customizable. The pre-packaged box includes the items shown on my etsy shop, but we can make it fit you and your family perfectly.

My daughter has severe nut allergies, and I know first hand the extra steps and anxiety that comes along with traveling to even short distances. You always have to be prepared for the “what if they don’t have a safe snack or meal” – Nut Free Mom Box has you covered.

National Donut Day & Nut Allergies

It’s tricky to take part in some of these made up holidays our nation throws at us. Today is national donut day, I had no idea until I saw the news today.

So, to help my nut allergic kiddo feel part of the crowd, we use Entenmanns Cake Donuts as our go-to safe donut.

I also have a piece about how we do Dunkin Donuts. And like all other food related items, check the labels first. Enjoy your day full of donuts!

This year, Target is carrying Dylan’s Candy Bar products. They are NOT nut-free, but if you’re looking for an extra special treat for someone like a teacher or friend, Dylan’s is sure to put a smile on their face. Plus they have these adorable Dylan’s Candy gift bags to hold their special snacks.

And of course, I topped off my Target run with a treat for me, a bottle of Kim Crawford. Of course it’s nut-free, but it’s all for me. Keep Calm and Kim On.
