Does anyone know of a peanut free/safe brand of chocolate chips? I was making Nestle brand till I read the label and tossed them out.

Dear CorinneM1
I use Baker's chocolate chips, they are made by Kraft. They may make the chocolate chips in different parts of the world, hence some may be safe and others not. I live in Canada.
regards,
Claudia

I use Hershey's in the USA, and in the cooler weather you can order very good ones from Vermont Nut Free. becca

I always use Hershey's chocolate chips when I bake chocolate chip cookies ... yes, as a chocoholic I occasionally do bake chocolate chip cookies.. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] They are made in Canada by Hershey Canada.
For recipes that require chocolate chunks, I use Baker's chocolate.

When I called Trader Joes they told me that their chocolate chips are made in a peanut free facility. You may want to call and verify.

We order all our coco and choco chips from Vermont nut free so we can be sure that they are safe. So yummy too!

I like Kellie's Nut Free candy.Their Chocolate chips are a little cheaper than Vermont Nut Free Candy but are VERY good.

I keep seeing everyone say nestle chips arent safe. I just looked at my label and see no warning or anything. I use them all the time , and my pa son has never had any problems.
This is what the label says, could someone please let me know what Im missing.
ingredients: semi-sweet chocolate (sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter, milkfat, soy lecithin- an emulsifier, vanillin- an artificial flavoring, natural flavoring).
Im not criticizing , just wondering if Im making a mistake giving them to my son.

I am going to ditto what becca said.
On another note, where I live (the suburbs of Chicago) on the Nestle's packages they have the peanut warning.
Hope this helps.
