Testimonials

"I just placed my second order of fudge and caramels. The maple fudge is simply fantastic! I live in NH and there is a lot of maple fudge sold here and its no where near as flavorful as the Sweet Shoppe's. The Sea Salt caramels are excellent too. So I've ordered more and ordered the maple fud..."

More About Our Sweet Promise

Nut Free Ingredients

WE PROMISE that we, as owners and all our employees, will work to keep peanuts and tree nuts out of our Sweet Shoppe. Due to our own allergies, we as owners will of course not be in contact with peanuts or tree nuts. We thoroughly educate all employees about the importance of not having any trace peanuts or tree nuts on their person when they come to work. We ask that they avoid contact with those products before their shift, and also require that everyone working at the Sweet Shoppe wash hands upon arrival. It should go without saying (but we will say it anyway) that employees are not allowed to carry in any nuts or peanuts. Failure to abide by the rule, even inadvertently, is cause for dismissal.

WE PROMISE not to use any peanuts or tree nuts in our recipes. This means you will never see peanuts or tree nuts listed among our product ingredients. If you have food allergies, you know this is only the first step. We also do extensive research on every ingredient used in our Sweet Shoppe and collect documentation from each manufacturer on their product ingredients and allergen statements. That documentation is available by following this link.

WE PROMISE to taste test every ingredient and every product. That may not seem like much of a promise, but with my husband and daughter’s serious peanut and tree nut allergies (please see “Our Story” for more details) it shows we are confident as parents and family that all of our ingredients and products are safe. If there is even a trace tree nut in a product or ingredient, my husband will react.

WE PROMISE to educate walk-in customers about our need to keep peanuts and tree nuts out of the building and the importance of their not having any trace peanuts or tree nuts on their person. Signs are prominently posted on the front door and throughout our Sweet Shoppe indicating that we are a “Nut Free Facility” and that they need to leave their nuts outside. We even ask customers wash their hands before shopping. However, it is impossible for us to guarantee compliance without closing the door to walk-in customers. That is why our Sweet Promise emphasizes nut free ingredients. Of course customers are not allowed in production areas and do not come in contact with unwrapped or unpackaged products.

We similarly promise gluten free ingredients in our Gluten Free Lefse. While we are not a gluten free facility (we currently use wheat flour containing gluten in our Traditional Lefse), we make our Gluten Free Lefse with dedicated equipment and tools. In addition, we follow careful practices to keep our gluten containing ingredients separate from all other ingredients. We are proud to use Hodgson Mill’s Gluten Free flours because they are processed in a facility that is not only gluten free but peanut and tree nut free. By the way, our fudge, caramel, and hard candy are also gluten free.

While we can’t promise you peace of mind, it is Our Sweet Promise that we are doing everything we can to make quality sweets and treats that are safe for people with peanut and tree nut allergies, and in most cases gluten free too. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
