I have found that only the regular Hershey Bars are safe. The mini Hershey bars have a "may contain" or a "processed in same facility". Other than Hershey bars, I tend to stay away from chocolate.

Of course you have to read the package. I always read labels. I think it goes without saying that when i say i use hershey bars i dont mean all hershey bars. do i have to say the ones that read safe???

When i read the labels on the chocolate bars by the check out none of them read peanut free, or even may contain - with the exception of Mars.
Does everyone here just call the company to make sure?

I do find single bars of regular and dark in the hersheys brand by the checkout to be safe in the US, pennsylvania. some six packs of the regular size bars are safe too. the little ones have almond or peanut warning.

I want my chocolate. Dark chocolate. I have been dealing with my son's PA for less than a week and I just realized yesterday that every bar that I pick up is labled may contain or from same equipment. All of the expensive stuff in the health food department too.
I could eat it outside the house, but I really don't want to start having to decontaminate when I go home.
Any suggestions on brands of Dark Chocolate Bars?

I know it isn't a chocolate "bar" but Hersheys does have the dark chocolate kisses that are safe. Hersheys is good about labeling so you still want to read every package because they have more than one manuafacturing plant.
My husband LOVES dark chocolate too so we just keep those in our freezer and take a few out at a time. They aren't as good as some of the high-end name brand ones, but they are still pretty good.

Don't know how serious of a chocoholic you are, but my favorite is [url="http://www.barry-callebaut.com/12"]Cocoa-Barry[/url] -- check out their allergen policy; I use their chocolate couvatures, dark, white and milk. Also, a less expensive alternative is [url="http://www.guittard.com/home/legal.html"]Guittard[/url]
I buy all of my chocolate from a local wholesaler -- of course it comes in 5# blocks and 10# boxes of pistoles, but not only can I use it for truffles and other chocolatier applications, but also for all my baking needs -- when you consider a bag of baking chips costs xx amount, it's cheaper to buy in bulk.

I love the chocolate from Vermont Nut Free --it's peanut and tree nut free--and delicious.
