My safe treat...always with me!

So, I decided to go through a Starbucks drive through today and grab my new favorite drink: the Nonfat White Chocolate Mocha, when my youngest Emma(who can eat anything but poultry) asked for their red velvet whoopie pie. Julia of course says,"What about me?"  I then remember about the Enjoy Life chocolate bar that I had thrown in my purse (for one of these moments) and immediately said, "I have your chocolate bar right here!"  She was thrilled, Emma was thrilled and Mama was now caffeinated! Win Win!!!!  Moral of the story: Never leave home without your "special" treat because you never know when you'll need it!


  1. Hi there,
    I've been following your blog for a bit and think you're doing a great job managing your children's MFAs. I've only been dealing with food allergies for a short while, so it's great to read about mums who have some experience.
    Secondly, I've heard that starbucks carries a new allergy friendly cookie made by Lucy's? I'm not really sure, since we don't have many Starbucks in Canada. Good thing you had your Enjoy Life treat!

    Take care,

  2. I always have something in my bag of tricks too. My son is allergic to dairy, eggs and nuts. Just the other day I had microwave popcorn at the best time. Who other than an allergy mom would have a ready bag of popcorn for the microwave.
