Beware of Caramel Dip with Peanut Butter
tiffanyac posted:
We attended a potluck party recently where pre-sliced, store-bought apple trays featuring caramel dip in the center were served. We didn't give our son caramel due to milk and possibly soy (which are not life threatening to him but cause severe consequences otherwise).

Some of my family members tasted the caramel dip and thought it was "different" but did not recognize peanut butter as the "hidden" ingredient.

We happened to be standing near the food table at the end of the party when the food was being put away... it was only when the lids were being placed back on the caramel that we were able to see the words "Peanut Butter Caramel Dip" stated clearly on the label.

If peanuts had been the only allergen we were concerned about, we wouldn't have thought twice about the caramel and would have ended up in the ER that evening instead of enjoying the rest of the party.
