Skeeter Snacks are a line of cookies created by two dads with nut-allergic children. The cookies are produced using the highest safety standards in facilities that do not process any products containing tree nuts or peanuts. Finally! A safe, high quality product for children or adults with nut allergies, or -- because they just taste so darn good -- anyone who enjoys a great cookie!
The company kindly sent me some of their cookies to try, and let me tell you, though none of us have nut allergies, the cookies didn't last long in our home! Skeeter Snacks come in three tasty flavors: Chocolate Chunk, Golden Oatmeal, and Skeeterdoodle, and are available to order on the company's website for just $3.99 for six 2-packs.
Being a bit of a chocoholic, my personal favorite is the Chocolate Chunk. Big chunks of yummy chocolate in every bite! My husband preferred the Skeeterdoodles, which have a great cinnamon flavor. And while my eldest son really enjoyed the Golden Oatmeal cookies, I felt they were a little more 'crunchy' than I normally enjoy from an oatmeal cookie. Overall, Skeeter Snacks deliver not only on their nut-free promise, but also on great taste and affordability. No cardboard taste or crazy high prices here!
The company is also committed to the ongoing education of parents, educators, and others about the dangers of nut allergies. In fact, a portion of Skeeter Snacks’ profits supports the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network. Their website offers a For Kids section, hosted by their nut-allergic squirrel mascot, Skeeter, which includes educational, fun activities and games.
