Death By Pineapple

Sounds like a great title for a murder mystery set in Hawaii, doesn't it? BUT, NO! IT'S A TRUE THING! Well, no, it isn't a true thing, BUT IT COULD BE!

See, one of my business partners in Per Bastet Publications and I went to Magna cum Murder, the best mystery conference inna world, and I brought these dried pineapple chunks for snackies.
My partner and I each had some. When I got home, I read the label on the top:
MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS, TREE NUTS, MILK, SOY AND WHEAT.

My partner is gluten intolerant, many people are deathy allergic to peanuts, and I suffer extreme reaction from lack of a serial comma. Fortunately, she saw the label and calculated (I just checked with her and she was correct) that there wasn't enough flour to give HER trouble at HER particular level of sensitivity, as long as she only had a couple.

But, are these a death trap, or what???

I'm posting at my own blog today about another death trap that is most delicious: Nutella.
