Wish your loved ones a happy Valentine’s Day with Smarties!

Feb 11, 2014

Smarties 24 count classroom packNew for Valentine’s Day 2014 is a limited edition “classroom pack” of Smarties, perfect for celebrating this special occasion with friends and family of all ages.

“The Valentine’s Day classroom pack is a fun way to celebrate friendship and Valentine’s Day exchanges,” says Sarah Spence, Marketing Manager, Nestlé Canada. “The treat-sized boxes are filled with red and pink Smarties for a festive touch, and each box has space for a ‘to’ and ‘from’ message, making these a fun, edible alternative to a paper card.”

The Smarties classroom pack is made in a peanut-free facility and features the peanut-free logo identifying the product as such.

“We’re excited to have a Smarties product made in a peanut-free facility available for celebrating this season,” says Spence.  “As always, we remind consumers to read the ingredient label of all products if they are concerned about an allergy.”

Our Peanut-free promise

At Nestlé Canada, we are committed to providing our very best chocolate bars – Kit Kat, Coffee Crisp, Aero and Smarties  – in snack size formats that are ‘Made in a Peanut Free Facility’. Our ‘Peanut Free’ Seal, on the front of all Nestlé Snack Size Formats, identifies that they were produced in a Peanut Free Facility.
 
Assuring our products are made in a Peanut Free facility means that our facility has rigorous quality control processes in place to ensure its peanut-free status. This includes extensive raw material, ingredient and finished product testing programs, supplier and employee protocols as well as regular audits, employee training, dedicated and certified allergen control staff and established Good Manufacturing Practices.
 
There may be products under the Smarties, Kit Kat, Aero and Coffee Crisp brands that contain peanuts. Make sure to read the label every time.

Other treats for your Valentine

In addition to the Smarties classroom pack, Nestlé Canada is offering two other treats that make great Valentine’s Day gifts. The classic Turtles heart provides the perfect Valentine’s surprise for anyone who loves the delicious combination of pecans and caramel. And the Smarties heart-shaped box returns as well, making a great gift for teachers or other Smarties fans in your life!
