There are lots of very sad people across the UK as we heard your After Eight "may now contain peanut & nut "

Personally we are limited to 3 shop purchased Boxed chocolates , After Eight, Matchmaker and Malteser . That's it . You have been a staple treat in our household since my daughter went into Anaphylaxis and could have potentially died following contact with nut on a dessert age 11 and was diagnosed with severe Peanut & Tree nut allergy .

We don't have tubs of chocolates we can chose from, we waved goodbye to Celebrations,Quality Street and Roses. My daughter misses out on treats handed out in the classroom by teachers who 'forget' her allergy each and every year. 

In the last five years we have educated friends and family and I have campaigned tirelessly to bring about safer food labelling and more importantly more choice for my daughter and the 1 in 40 of the population with tree nut and peanut allergy . I'm tired of reading labels but I'm sensible enough to know that if a company , prior to this in our eyes known as one of the best , labels with a "May contain peanut & nut " warning then there is indeed a real and potentially deadly risk to my child.

I along with many others have repeatedly requested via social media and direct email that you take consideration when packing your Christmas & Easter selection boxes and the dreaded Easter Egg where the content is safe but the Egg itself carrys a warning.   You Nestle haven't had one safe large egg in the six years we have lived with allergies. At Christmas its so frustrating to see a selection box 5 bar pack where 4 are safe, but the 5 isn't . Please do create atleast 1 or 2 safe selections each season. 

Finally Nestle its worth noting as a business thats it's not just our custom you loose but all our friends and extended families too. 

Thank you in advance for your  consideration of this matter.
