VICTORIA KOTZ

Peanut, Tree Nut, Milk, Egg, Wheat

My Best Spokin Find: I love the Spokin Community. I appreciate transparency, and I try to approach my reviews that way so other families can judge if it’s a product or recipe that would work for their food allergies.

My Favorite Review:
Earth Balance Cheese Puffs are a snack that both my FA and non-FA kids can enjoy.


NICK MCGOWAN

Peanut
Chicago, IL

My Best Spokin Find: Ema in downtown Chicago is amazing. The waitstaff and kitchen were super helpful with allergies, and peanuts are virtually nonexistent on the menu. One of my favorite places in Chicago, hands down!

My Favorite Review: Dinkel’s Bakery is peanut free! It is hands down one of the best donut places in Chicago. Go for the sour cream ones.


STACEY YARRISH

Peanut
Grants Pass, OR

My Best Spokin Find: The Land of Not is a book I could have never found without Spokin. I love JJ’s story and the mission he is on to make the world a better place.

My Favorite Review: Starry Lane Bakery — While on vacation in Southern California, we made it a “mission” to visit the bakery so I could post a review on Spokin. It was such a fun experience!


DANYA SARSOUR

Peanut, Tree Nut, Milk, Egg, Sesame, Peach
Clovis, CA

My Best Spokin Find: The Spokin Recipe Search — I LOVE it. Special shout out to the Allergy-Friendly Holiday Cookie Recipe piece!

My Favorite Review: Monarch Beach Resort is my family’s favorite getaway place! The chef had a special three-course menu planned for my son everyday we were there. For Thanksgiving, he made him his own turkey meal.


ELAINE KELLY

EoE to Dairy
Lynbrook, NY

My Best Spokin Find: I like the Spokin Map Feature because it’s really helpful for traveling!

My Favorite Review: The food at Bareburger is so delicious and the staff is so helpful. Because there’s so many vegan options there, I can eat a lot of food, including deserts! Where else can I get a cheeseburger and a milkshake in one place?


LAUREN BEACH

Peanuts, Tree Nuts
Tampa Bay, FL

My Best Spokin Find: Gerbs Pumpkin Seeds are great. We always have a hard time finding seeds that are free from contamination from tree nuts and these have so many uses!

My Favorite Review: Jim ‘N Nicks Bar-B-Q has a DEDICATED ALLERGY MENU. They are very well educated and my daughter loves the children’s grilled cheese and the cheddar muffins they put out before the meal.


SAFEMOM

Peanut, Tree Nut, Egg, Mustard, Sesame, Chickpea, Grass
West Orange, NJ

My Best Spokin Find: Chocolate Smarties are delicious! I was so excited to find out from Spokin that they were safe for my kids…they are nut free! Unlike M&Ms, which state on the label that they may contain peanuts, these seem to be safe from any potential cross contamination.

My Favorite Review: Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara —There are not enough positive words to describe my experience there. The staff made us feel so relaxed about our kids’ food allergies, including their uncommon ones, mustard and chickpea.
