All Chocolate Lovers Unite!

Thanks to some truly great companies offering allergen free chocolate products, anyone can have a chocolate Easter Bunny or other yummy treat in their basket.

Divvies has a great Easter Chocolate bag kit for the Chocolate lover in your family. What's better than an Easter basket made of chocolate?? I can't think of anything either :) Make it and overload it with other tasty Divvies goodies! Make sure you add a Benjamint Crunch Candy Bar--thats our favorite :)

Divvies fun-foods are available to share with families and friends across the country. Divvies cookies, popcorns, and cupcakes are made in the company’s-own dedicated facility where no peanuts, tree nuts, eggs or milk enter the doors. Divvies candies, frosting, and sprinkles are certified by their manufacturers to be peanut-, tree nut-, milk-, and egg-free and are packaged in Divvies Bakery. Divvies conducts routine testing to minimize the risk of any cross-contamination in their certified allergen-free ingredients. (Read this exerpt and other info about Divvies at their website)

Enjoy Life Foods has AWESOME chocolate chips(allergen free) that can easily be melted down to make your own Easter Chocolate candies :)

Enjoy Life® Foods (ELF), founded in early 2001, has the mission to make great-tasting allergy-friendly and gluten-free foods that nearly everyone can eat freely without worry. The Enjoy Life product line is gluten-free and free of the eight most common allergens: wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy, fish and shellfish.  The notion that people with dietary restrictions must frequently sacrifice good taste and nutrition in order to find allergy-friendly and gluten-free foods they can eat inspired the business. Check out their website for more information and other YUMMY products!

There are other websites that offer Peanut free goodies. I have never bought from them personally but I hope to try some of their products in the near future as I have heard positive feedback on most of them.

Peanut Free Planet has a pretty large Easter Candy compilation from all different companies.  Its rather nice to have a large selection at your fingertips.
You can check them out here Peanut Free Planet

Vermont Nut Free Chocolate Company is newer to me personally. I checked out their website just this morning. According to the website the company was founded by the mother of a little boy with a peanut allergy. Their entire selection is completely safe for those with any tree nut or peanut allergy. There are other allergens, however, in their products. As always, check out all allergen information available.

Let me know if you have tried any of these companies--and what your thoughts are :)
