Snowball Cookies

Looking for a delicious cookie or biscuit? Check out Touché Bakery's Snowball Cookies , London, Ontario. Similar to a traditional wedding cookie, Snowball cookies have a unique flavour and texture. The 8-oz. retail package is produced in a tree nut-free, peanut-free, sesame seed-free and kosher facility. But beware- they melt in your mouth and once you have opened the box... look out! They may disappear rather quickly from your household, I know they did in ours!

Call for a comprehensive approach to assist those with severe allergies June 7, 2010 – Niagara West - Glanbrook Member of Parliament Dean Allison gave notice for a motion in the House of Commons today: That in the opinion of the House, anaphylaxis is a serious concern for an increasing number of Canadians and the government should take the appropriate measures necessary to ensure these Canadians are able to maintain a high quality of life. Anaphylaxis is a medical condition describing people with severe, life threatening allergies. Reactions are rapid in onset and may cause death without immediate treatment. Food is the most common cause of anaphylaxis, but insect stings, medicine, latex or exercise can cause reactions. In Canada, the most common food allergens are milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, shellfish, fish, sesame and wheat. Anaphylaxis has no cure, though important research and efforts to find a cure are underway. Avoidance is the required preventative measure.
