Not sure about this year, but in the past there have been concerns about Jello pudding and cross contamination with a pistachio flavor - or perhaps it was some other nut, but nut cross contamination one way or the other. Have you contacted the Jello folks? I tend to avoid their puddings, and ice cream pops. Please let me know if you have heard recently that they are made in a dedicated facility. Thansk!

We don't use it due to previously hearing about the cross contamination with the pistachio flavoring as well. Only read it second hand, but I have a tight comfort zone- so we just avoid- sorry I couldn't help!

I've found that the instant pudding doesn't set with soy milk, but the cook and serve varieties work fine if you aren't concerned about the cross contamination.

I'd like to know too.
I do use other Kraft products, but because the pistachio could possibly be one of our tree nut allergies, I'm just not yet comfortable with using their pudding and other Jello products.
If I knew their gelatin was produced on different lines from the pudding I'd feel a lot better, but knowing their allergen policy, I'm sure they will never confirm that for me. Besides, I have a strong feeling that they are all run on the same lines.

It does set with alternative milks... you just have to use less of it (milk).
I've had good luck using coconut milk for pudding for my daughter.

I do. I have always used the chocolate pudding mix. And I use jello gelatin mix. I did hear about the recall, but not anything further - but we have never had a problem. (I do use Kraft products.) Is there another brand of pudding mix that is completely x-contam safe?

Do you happen to know how much less? Have you tried rice milk? I think this would be a special treat for my dd as she has never had pudding.

We use Dr. Oetker pudding mixes. They work fine with soymilk.
