Review: Peanut Free Cupcakes

I had the opportunity to review Peanut-Free cupcakes that were purchased from the bakery at Walmart.  These cupcakes are made at Maplehurst Bakery in NH,  which is a dedicated Peanut Free facility.  

Just look for the "Made in a Peanut-Free Facility" logo on the package and you can feel safe that there are no traces of peanuts in your cupcakes. 

Maplehurst tests for the presence of peanuts and peanut products in the Manchester facility. However, due to the lack of accurate and reliable testing methods for detecting the presence of all tree nuts, Maplehurst cannot and therefore does not make the claim that its products are “tree nut-free.”

The cupcakes were so moist and delicious!! They came in many different decorated colors  and you can choose between chocolate and vanilla. The cupcakes can be purchased in 12-count mini cupcakes or 6-count of regular size cupcakes. 

Maplehurst Bakeries sells its peanut-free cupcakes to retailers nationwide. Look for the cupcakes at your local grocery store.

To ensure that you’re purchasing the right products, look for the wrap-around label, the peanut-free logo or the statement “Made in a peanut-free facility.”

Disclosure: I received a complimentary samples. The review is my own opinion of the product.

Thank you for sharing! I had no idea about these cupcakes. Our policy had been no Walmart cupcakes just since I had a hard time communicating with counter staff.

I'll look into our local store. Many parents bring Walmart cupcakes to school.

Thanks for sharing, I was unaware of these cupcakes! Walmart had been off limits, so I will check it a new look over!retywa

Thank you for this information and just throwing the tree nut allergy information in there. I have a TNA child and this info. helped me go directly to the Maplehurst site and find this letter which in turn made me feel VERY confident in these cupcakes. THANK YOU!
