Does anyone still use Hersheys semi-sweet chocolate chips for baking after Hersheys started using sheanut butter for Kissables?

I use the Hershey's Milk Chocolate chips, almost exclusively, as there aren't any other brands I've been able to find. My son has never had a problem. (PA & TNA)

I use them several times a week as my kids are addicted to chocolate chip pancakes!

We still use them. It makes me nervous though because they might be a 'may contain' kind of issue. We have no other options here-we can't find Guittard. We do have Ghirardelli which I think is now safe for pa/tna on *some* of their varieties (I think it used to be pa safe but not tna safe). I'm having a hard time with that though but maybe we should try them.

We started using them for Choc Chip Pancakes just like timmysmom, since nestle changes they are the only ones I can find that seem safe, DD has been fine with them and hasn't complain about them tasting funny etc.

I was just thinking about this topic myself. I went to buy some chocolate chips sicne my biggest baking season is coming up. I looked at all the packages, and they all are "manufatured ina facility" now. There used to be one or two that were not, but now they all are. I am looking into the Vermont nut free ones now, but I hate to have to buy it in bulk to save on shipping.

We use Hershey's chocolate chips. Our bags don't have any warnings on them.

I've switched to the Vermont nut free ones...but we don't use Choc chips very much. I actually don't give DD Hershey's chocolate much anymore since the Shea controversy...we buy her some Vermont nut free and we eat the Hershey's as I still feel safe having it in the house..but would prefer not to give it to her. Last time I talked to Hershey's they weren't labeling "shea" as nuts...in other words for may contain,,,,etc...only listed it if in the ingredients...don't know if that's changed or not?

Are you talking about Hershey's semi-sweet chips? I have never seen a bag of these labelled may contain, and I buy them weekly.

I haven't either. BUT Hershey is now making things with shea and they do not label for shea cross contamination like they would with other nuts. So I think people are beginning to be concerned about possible cross contact with shea that wouldn't be listed. I am. But I agree-I have never seen any that say 'may contain' other than some specialty flavor chips.
