I actually just sampled the boxed chocolates from Premium Chocolatiers and they are AWESOME. Here is my review - http://www.godairyfree.org/Alisa-s-Blog/Alisa-s-Milk-Free-Blog/True-Love-Comes-in-a-Box-from-the-Premium-Chocolatiers.html

Also, I borrowed a mini-version of the heart pic to promote the blog carnival on the front page of Go Dairy Free today, hope that's okay! Email if not. Thanks!

Jennifer-as the mother of a child with multiple life threatening food allergies I thank you for your fantastic blog! It can be a lonely food allergy world and it's nice to see that there are so many supportive people out there.

Regarding valentine treats....these aren't valentine specific but we plan to add them to our kiddos valentine cards this year.

Allergen free, organic, junk free lollipops by Yummy Earth. I didn't see them mentioned on your blog so I'm not sure if you are aware of them.

I've reviewed them over at my new Green Living blog:


Thanks again Jennifer. I look forward to reading more of your reviews.

Ruth, thanks for the reminder about Yummy Earth. My boys are big fans; currently, we are working our way thru a bag of Yummy Earth Organic "Freshest Fruit" Candy Drops. We love the fact that it is a safe candy (other than Tootsie rolls) we can find at the local supermarket too.
