I have no religious, ethical, or allergy reasons for not eating certain items, but I can certainly appreciate the dilemna of those who do. Two episodes.
My daughter has an extreme allergy problem, one of which is peanuts. At one point, she ate an M&M, and immediatly started breaking out. Checking with the manufacturer, we learned that they did indeed vary their oils based on availability and price. I don't know how anyone would know of changes such as these.
Second incident. I recently ordered takeout chinese from a restaurant with which I had been dealing over several years and that had now changed hands. Ordered something with lobster in it. Instead, it had crawfish tails. The new owner denied any change. But I can tell the difference. Have not gone back.

All I can do is laugh and learn.

I try to take things light-hearted, and get as much fun out of a situation as I can. My job is stressful enough, do need any stress over simple things like this

As a working Renny, I can assure you, there won't be a language barrier at the Ren Faire. Just ask, they'll give you the details of how big the cans the chickpeas come out of are. I've seen them, they're huge.

I love the Ren Fair, The felafel, the strolling pickle carts and the frozen cheesecake on a stick......
