For years, my family has enjoyed this allergy~friendly snack option. We have to hide the bags from my husband because he will devour one on his own!
It's not one of the easiest items to find and I can't tell you how thrilled I was to find it at our local COOP on one of my last visits. Needless to say, my family was even happier!!

I know that the 'made in a facility that also manufactures...' will be of concern for some. I will follow up and see what the Calbee company will tell me about their manufacturing/cleaning practices. I can say that we have eaten this product for YEARS, even with our milk allergies. With all of the increased allergy awareness in our communities, I know that many companies place this statement on their packaging for the 'just in case' scenario. I will keep you posted on what I find out.
Their website has an incredible amount of information about their products, a timeline regarding their history from the 1970s, video tours and their philosophy around the 'Environment Project'. Want to buy from a company that is community and planet oriented? How about one that offers workshops on nutrition education for children in Japan?
As many of you can see, there are a lot of good reasons, besides the great taste of this product, to buy from Calbee.
