Was wondering what safe chocolate chips people are using- just the ones from Vermont Nut Free?

Enjoy life foods has allergy free products including mini chocolate chips. I think they are pretty good.

I have felt that Hershey's were safe and have used them for a couple of years without any trouble whatsoever. I talked to Hershey not too long ago and came away very comfortable about their labelling practices. They are specific and seem very careful. Hope this helps!

I called nestle last week and they said that their semi-sweet chips are fine---no danger of xcontam or anything. I now have 4 bags int the cupboard just waiting for me to have time to make something!

I usually use VNF, but have used Hershey or Nestle in a pinch, since they have been consistent in their responses to Xcontam issues.
However, my family always comments that the "cookies aren't as good as usual" when I use anything other than VNF!

I just made chocolate chip cookies today, and used Ghiradelli's. They were great, all ingredients are fine!

Used to use Guittard but now I cannot find it anymore. So we use Hershey and it has been fine.

Hmmm, all the Ghirardelli's around here are labelled "May Contain".
