Options for Chocolate Chips...

I was so excited when we started this allergy journey that there were safe chocolate chips. I thought that chocolate would always be out because of milk, but I have found that that is not so (THANK GOODNESS!) Here are a couple of options that vary in price.

Kroger Value Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (these are regular size chocolate chips) and they only contain soy. There is nothing on the bag that says, "made in a facility that contains..." but my friend Ginger has given them to her food allergic son and I have given them to Brody and they have had no reactions. They are usually $2 or less for a 12 oz. bag.

sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, salt, vanillin. Contains: SOY

Enjoy Life is free of the 8 common allergens and has dairy, nut and soy free semi-chocolate chips (the chips are very small). They are made in a dedicated nut and gluten free facility. You can buy these at Whole Foods and they are usually about $4.39 for a 10 oz bag. Always check Enjoy Life's website, because they usually have a coupon that you can use to help bring down the cost. When I bought them the other day, I used a .55 off coupon from the website. I will splurge and buy these chocolate chips to make mini chocolate chip banana muffins because I love the small chips in the mini muffins (perfect size!)

Divvies has no nuts, no eggs, and no dairy chocolate chips (these look like regular size chocolate chips). They have a 1 pound bag for $6.50 (plus shipping) or you can buy a 5 pound bag for $30 (plus shipping...shipping depends on the weight of what you are buying). Right now, if you order from Divvies, you can enter the code "MARCH" at checkout and receive 20% off your order. *They have really cute 4 oz. solid chocolate bunny for Easter, it is $8.50 (it contains soy)

Ingredients: Sugar, Chocolate Liquor, Non-Dairy Cocoa Butter, Soya Lecithin (Added as an Emulsifier), Vanilla Extract, Salt. Contains: SOY
