Most of you know that my four year old son has an allergy to both tree nuts and peanuts. What you might not know is that an estimated 6 million adults and children are effected with these same allergies.
Included in those numbers are two dads, Pete and Dave, that have children of their own who are affected by nut allergies. These dads created “Skeeter Snacks” to offer great tasting, nut-free, and affordable snacks that children with and without food allergies could enjoy.
Living with nut allergies is hard. Not just for the child, but for the whole family. Imagine shopping for birthday party food, get togethers, play groups, treats for at home, and having to buy a package of “nut-free” and then another package of the regular stuff for the other kids.
Skeeter Snacks make perfect treats for the classroom and at 3.99 for a box of 6 packages (2 cookies in each package), they are very affordable to buy for kids who have allergies and even those who don’t. Everyone will love Skeeter Snacks!
I am LOVING the fact that Skeeter Snacks has popped up, not only to create these yummy treats that are safe for my son, but to also set the standard and show other companies that there is a need for nut safe food.
Skeeter the squirrel is on all of their packaging to show you that the snack you are about to eat is nut-free. They guarantee their facility to be so clean and free of nuts that they don’t even allow food that contains peanuts in their employee vending machines.
We had the opportunity to try out the three flavors of cookies offered by Skeeter Snacks, Chocolate Chunk, Skeeterdoodle, and Golden Oatmeal. My son’s favorite was the Chocolate Chunk, hands down! I enjoyed the Skeeterdoodle.
Skeeter Snacks are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. In my opinion these are just as good as the real chunky cookies that aren’t safe for my little monkey. We love them and have adapted Skeeter Snacks into our home. I’m excited to see what comes beyond the cookies for Skeeter Snacks!
