Their coffee coconut flavor includes coconut milk, rolled oats, dates, coffee concentrate, and sea salt. Although the MUSH recipe is 100% plant-based, they are made in a facility that processes other tree nuts, peanuts, milk, soy, wheat, eggs, and fish. This means that there is a risk for cross-contamination of allergens.
