I recently found some butterscotch chips that I felt were safe enought to buy -- Food Club, available at Coborn's grocery stores and probably some others. All the major brands of butterscotch chips in the U.S. have peanut warnings on them. I know Guittard makes some safe ones, but I've never found them.

The Food Club brand ones are a store brand, but I think some of their other products have been well-labeled. I do avoid generics when I can get a major brand. But these butterscotch chips have a warning that they are produced in a plant that also produces products containing milk. The semi-sweet ones have the same warning, and they do have milk chocolate ones, too, but no peanut butter chips.

I haven't contacted Topco, the distributor listed on the package. But that labeling looks good to me. I don't know if you guys would risk it, but I'm happy to find butterscotch chips with cross-contamination warnings about things we don't have to avoid.

Yes, I just checked Nestle's butterscotch and it does have a warning. I remember seeing o.k. ones before but the only ones I ever trust is Hersheys or Nestle, maybe Nestle changed the label. I would order from Vermont Nut Free.

I use the Guittard butterscotch chips - we make "haystacks" out of them and my kids (and husband) love them! They melt so nice and are peanut/tree nut-free. I can buy them locally at The World Market.

We make haystacks.
Take a bag of butterscotch chips. Melt them in the microwave in a large microwave safe bowl.
(If they have trouble melting, you can add some shortening.)
When melted, pour a can or 2 of chow mein noodles in and mix gently so as not to break them up too much.
Make "haystacks" on waxed paper by dropping by spoonfuls.
Cool. Enjoy.

I just used Vermont Nut Free butterscotch chips in oatmeal cookies. They came out so good.

Last year I was able to find the store brand of Price Chopper supermarkets. Their butterscotch chips, according to their labels, were safe. We used them with no problem and we have peanut/TN allergies in our home.
