After months of being available at some Roche Bros. Supermarkets in Massachusetts, Canada's peanut-free, nut-free Create-A-Treat cookies now are available at some Shaw's Supermarkets. Roche Bros. has been carrying Create-A-Treat frosted cookies and peanut-free, tree nut-free cupcakes for several months. While the prices are higher than similar looking cupcakes and cookies without the peanut-free, nut-free label, Roche Bros. prices these items consistently lower than Shaws Supermarkets.
This is a handy little tip for those of you with nut and peanut allergic loved ones as well as those of you whose kids have nut and peanut allergic classmates. It's nice to be able to find something at the local store, but it ain't cheap! Also, how DO those soft frosted cookies last so long? I don't think we really want to know the answer to that! We have to be thankful for what we have, and there's no doubt about it, being able to buy cookies or cupcakes at the store is a great convenience.
