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.

I've used My-T-Fine pudding mix. Not the instant. Chocolate, chocolate fudge and vanilla, once we tried the butterscotch one too. I never tried it with soy milk though.

I have personally had a rapid heart rate no hives after eating Chocolate instant Jell-o Pudding. My son just had out all 4 wisdom teeth and is picky picky eater so I had to make everything from scratch. Tried pudding for the first time and I must say it was excellent! Chocolate was oh, my goodness good- Vanilla a lot like tapiocoa flavor. The recipe is made with milk and egg but, I am going to play with it. Try not to use egg. WE are not allergic to eggs or dairy but, for variety. I even used butterscotch chips from Vermont Nut Free and it was great! So , here is the recipes -I would play around with it! What the heck baking and cooking are but an art form! WE even froze the butterscotch into pudding pops!
