News Release: From: Holiday World HOLIDAY WORLD ADDS ALLERGEN-FREE MENU SANTA CLAUS, IN-----Families visiting Holiday World & Splashin Safari this season will be able to enjoy a meal together, even if one of the family members has food allergies. Several of the park’s restaurants now offer a menu of pre-packaged food items which do not contain the eight most common food allergens, namely: wheat, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, milk, soy and eggs. “The past several seasons we’ve heard from more and more parents who had concerns about what their children with food allergies could eat at our park,” says Holiday World & Splashin Safari’s president, Will Koch. “Our new food service director took on this initiative with gusto and we’re looking forward to helping our guests learn about these new menu items.” Pizza and chicken nuggets which do not contain the eight food allergens are available at Kringle’s Kafé, Safari Pizza and Jungle Jake’s; those restaurants also now have designated equipment for preparing gluten-free and dairy-free items. In addition, the park now offers gluten-free sandwich bread and buns. Pre-packaged applesauce, carrots, and corn chips are offered as an option to fries. All restaurants will also carry disposable placemats and sanitation wipes. For dessert, snicker-doodle cookies which are free of the eight allergens plus corn and potatoes are available. Gluten-free and wheat-free brownies and chocolate-chip cookies are now offered at Mrs. Klaus’ Kitchen and Plymouth Rock Café. Mrs. Klaus’ Kitchen also serves gluten-free rice crispy treat bars and sucrose-free fudge. In addition, two types of dairy-free ice cream bars are available. A list of allergen-free items is available on the “Restaurants & Food” page at Holiday World’s website, www.HolidayWorld.com. Park guests may also speak with a member of the food department’s management with questions about ingredients in the restaurants’ food items. May 11-17 is Food Allergy Awareness Week (FAAW). During this week, the 500 foods employees at Holiday World & Splashin Safari will receive Food Allergy Education presented by medical advisors affiliated with Evansville’s Tri-State Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Support Group.
