Allergy~Friendly Pre-Packaged Turnovers for Dessert? Here's a tasty possibility

I am always looking for new desserts that my family will enjoy. I was currently on the hunt for an egg-free, milk-free, pre-packaged alternative for a quick after dinner treat.  

S.A.F.E. Product Review

I was pleasantly surprised with my new find.  It is from Pepperidge Farms.  I GREW UP ON THESE PRODUCTS.. several generations of my family have worked and continue to work for them.  However, a large majority of their products have some kind of milk or egg ingredients in them.  Imagine my pleasure when I found something that didn't!

Puff Pastry Turnovers, distributed by Pepperidge Farm, Inc.

Ingredients of the Raspberry turnovers, our favorite, include:  margarine [palm oil, water, salt, distilled monoglycerides, soy lecithin, natural flavor, beta carotene (color), vitamin A palmitate], unbleached enriched wheat flour [flour, malted barley flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), folic acid], water, raspberries,high fructose syrup, sugar, modified food starch, contains 2 percent or less of: salt, apple powder, wheat gluten, distilled monoglycerides (from hydrogenated soybean oil) and soy lecithin.

'Natural flavor' is the one ingredients that could be an issue for allergy families.  For us, it hasn't been an issue.

The puff pastry is delicious and we are definitely new fans of this easy dessert.  Check out the cherry, apple and peach ones too!
