Has anyone found any? I'd like to make some peppermint bark and another recipe I found (white chocolate chip and cranberry cookies) but I haven't found any safe chips. I've ONLY found Nestle White chips.

Does anyone know of any that are sold in common stores?

thanks!

Once a few years back I found a safe store brand - Price Chopper I think. They are not safe now. However, their butterscotch chips still are.
Other than that Vermont Nut Free sells white chocolate chips.

Tonight I just found Guittard safe white chocolate chips at our Christmas Tree Shop.

Bakers chocolate makes a white chocolate bar. I have not read the label but the semi-sweet one did not have a warning. I cannot use white chocolate as ds is also allergic to dairy. I cannot say that it is safe but might be worth a little investigation. Hope this helps.

thanks for the suggestions everyone. I found a bag at Trader Joes that did not have a warning on it. Do you think it is OK since TJs seems to label things for cross-contamination? It only lists the ingredients, no other warnings/may contains/made on shared equip.
I haven't seen the Baker's white bar, will have to check.

I second Baker's. It's made by Kraft. You could call the 800 number on the package to be sure, but I recently called regarding the Baker's semi-sweet chocolate and they informed me that if an allergen isn't listed in the ingredient list and there's no "may contain" warning on the package that it's considered safe.

I third Bakers. We use many of their chocolate products, including white for bark.
