I have returned from my trip to Bangkok. The strongly worded food allergy cards were amazing. First, I asked the waiter if peanuts or peanut oil were used in their recipes. They usually said no. When I showed the waiters the strongly worded card, they paused, went to check with the cook and/or manager, and usually suggested a particular meal to eat. At most Thai restaurants I stuck with dessert. One restaurant was extremely accommodating, cooking my food from scratch with freshly washed pots and utensils. The SelectWisely cards were a life-saver!

Our entire family thanks you for your food allergy translation cards! We ordered some in Italian, French and Spanish due to our son's severe peanut and tree nut allergies. On our first night in Rome we handed one to our waiter, who promptly took it back to the chef who said they would make him something special since they did indeed use peanut oil in their kitchen. That was one of many situations when those cards came in very handy, since we aren't fluent in any of the languages. Your cards were an immense help to us.

I have dealt with you in the past and wanted to let you know that your gluten free translation cards are fantastic! We were in a busy street in the middle of Istanbul and wanted to have lunch on our way to visit Topkapi. I showed your gluten free card and ended up being shown by the owner by way of pointing what I could and could not have. When my meal came, it looked so good our friends ordered the same lunch. It also worked in Rhodes, Greece as the owner advised me they put flour in their rice which is most unusual for me. Thanks to your cards we are able to travel wherever we wish and have absolutely no problem with my gluten free diet. In fact, I feel that we are given superior treatment as the owner normally becomes involved and the cards are taken directly to the chef to confirm that the food is all right for me. I have told many people of your business and I hope they are using it to their advantage as I do.

Your food allergy cards have set my mind at ease when ordering in restaurants in Europe. The first time I ordered and used your peanuts and shellfish food allergy and medicine allergy cards was 2010 when my husband and I traveled to Italy. I also used your food allergy cards in 2014 while vacationing in France, Germany and Switzerland and even brought my French translation cards with me when we traveled in Canada. Fortunately, I've never had to use the cards that explain my husband's penicillin allergy but I'm glad I travel with them. I'm happy I ordered new cards for my trip this spring to countries in Eastern Europe. I love that your allergy cards are sturdy, plastic and fit nicely in my wallet.

I’m going to England as part of my university study abroad program. I am taking your multi-language food allergy card with me since I expect to travel around Europe while I’m there. A great service for the food-allergy sufferers like me.
