Hi all,
I've done a search and I cant find anything. I'm looking for chocolate and cocoa that is nut free. I normally use callebut but it says on the packet that it may be produced in a facility with nuts. Any other recommendation?

Also, looking for cocoa, I think hersheys is ok? I usually use ghiradelli but I'm not sure if that is nut free?

I already understand the risks, I'm just looking for allergen free chocolate!

Have you tried a health food store/natural food store?

I have used products recommended by this book:

You can also do a search on in their grocery section:

A health food store is where I usually go. They are very helpful and can usually come up with some other suggestions. (my good friend and her kids are allergic to dairy, whey, nuts, some colorings, & all hooved animals) I have used Hershey coco for her.

Thanks for the suggestions. I went to whole foods and they had a cocoa I could use (which was also fair trade and organic, karma points too!) and some chocolate chips which will work. I also found non-aluminium baking powder, for some reason all the other stores have switched, so it was well worth the trip and for once it wasnt a 'whole paycheck'!!!
