Ice cream store. Several flavors with peanut butter. Nut toppings everywhere.
Sounds like a nightmare, right? It had all the ingredients of an allergic reaction (no pun intended).
I had a pit in my stomach the moment we walked through the door, but the employee convinced me that there was proper segregation of the peanut flavors and that plain ice cream would be safe.
As my seven year old food allergic daughter ate her ice cream I immediately regretted my decision. As I glanced at her, I noticed a change on her complexion. Was she growing pale? Was it my imagination or was she doing something strange with her mouth?
