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!

I’m back from Japan and wanted to let you know that your Japanese food allergy card made a tremendous difference! I was able to get very good meals customized to my food requirements. Thanks to you, I did not have a single food related reaction during my entire trip. I really appreciate your extra efforts with the translation and timing. Thanks again!

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.

My 12 year old son has gone on 2 school international tours using your food allergy cards. 5 different countries with no allergen exposures. Parents do not travel with the school so having the allergy cards is a great worry reducer.

My recent trip to Italy was a great success thanks to your Italian Strongly Worded food allergy card on peanut/peanut oil. The very first day I used it, the waiter told me that when he showed the card to the chef, the chef told him that I could not eat their pizza because peanut oil is used in the dough. That came as quite a surprise as I had never heard of using peanut oil in dough, but it shows how invaluable the food allergy card is. The cards also proved useful when ordering gelato because of possible cross contamination. The gelato store manager stated that I was safe eating only the fruited gelatos. I highly recommend the use of these life-saving food allergy cards when traveling to any foreign country.
