Just recently, I let you know about a healthy little frozen dessert company called Hakuna Banana.

Hakuna Banana Dipped Frozen Dessert Bars come in three flavors, and are dipped in a naturally-sweetened chocolate.

Allergen Note*

I asked Hakuna Banana about allergen protocols, and they sent the following response:

We are managed on equipment that sometimes processes milk, wheat, tree nuts, eggs, soy, corn, and peanuts, so if your audience has severe allergies, it would be safer for them to not consume our product.

But when I specifically asked again about their cleaning processes, they responded:

Our plant has a strict policy of thoroughly washing before and after each production run of our products!
