Why... when an allergy can kill you, can you not mention what it is specifically, so I don't have to ask 20 questions. Allergy to nuts doesn't include peanuts... because they aren't a nut! And for the sake of a few dollars, carry that damn epi-pen if it's a deadly allergy... can you imagine living the rest of your life with the regret of watching someone die because you wanted to save $80 on an epi pen!

If we get 'nut allergies' I don't make anything with nuts, even peanuts. We get people who say 'tree nut allergy' like I'm supposed to know which nuts grow on trees and which don't.

I have no idea why someone with a serious allergy would travel without the means to save their lives. That shows a lot more faith in humankind than I think humankind deserves.

Because we had a guest with multiple food allergies but the only one I 'heard' was gluten. I made gluten free peanut butter cookies and was so proud of myself. Until the guest said, 'Gluten makes me feel awful, but peanuts will kill me.' So, yeah, don't trust people to completely hear what they're being told and carry that epi pen.

Can you just imagine for the rest of your life having to tell everyone your child died because you were too cheap to carry an epi pen? I know in the US they are $600, but around here it's $60.... but even at that... it's a LIFE.
