We use Hershey's and Kroger brand when I can't get the Hershey's, though they aren't as good in my opinion. I've never seen safe Nestle but it could be that they don't ship the safe ones to my area (southeastern Michigan). I think a friend of mine who has a MA son uses Kroger brand but I'm not 100% certain about that.

I also went to Trader Joe's specifically for the chocolate chips-are they a problem now? They did change the packaging this summer...

I have never seen safe Nestles but I used Hersheys semi sweet last christmas. Vermont Nut free is also a great choice and no worries about whether they are safe.

Hi I am also new to this website so I am checking up on all blogs. We use Hershey's chocolate and semi sweet chips for my PA child. We also buy from Vermont Nut Free Chocolates and buy their Skippers!!!!!! They are basically safe M&M's.

We have found the Hershey's semi sweet chips are ok. Our son with PA hasn't had a problem with them. The cake issue from the bakery's you were talking about I am glad we don't have that problem. The grocery store that my husband works at allowed us to read the label on the cakes that they get (they come already made), and they make sure that any cake we order is made first and that it is made in a freshly cleaned area before they even take any nuts out to start making any other of the bakery goods. They note that the cake can't be near nuts right on our order form.

vermont nut free is definately your best bet with chocolate chips. theyre really good and all of their other chocolates are too, especially the skippers (like m&ms). and theyre all nut free so no worries.

Don't forget Enjoy Life Foods! They make chocolate chips which are nut free and gluten free. I can find them in some nearby supermarkets, and that's SO nice because I don't have to special order them in advance!

The Guittard chocolate chips are really good, and both the semi-sweet and milk chocolate are made in a dedicated facility. Safeway stores (Ralph's, Von's etc) sell them, as does See's Candies. You can also buy them online.

We use the plain Hershey chocolate chips and haven't had any problems. Also, Divvies sells chocolate chips that are just wonderful!

I work for Frys Food in Az. Ralphs in So California carries Kroger or their store brand chocolate chips. My 5 year old grandson has a peanut and tree nut allergy and we make cookies on a regular basis with these and never a reaction at all.
