Send a heart to your love…A chocolate heart that is! Okay nut free chocolate heart!! This is what I dug up this week in the way of Valentine’s Day hearts available via the Internet that are food allergy friendly! I love chocolate and try to consider it a food group, so I was very pleased to see how far we’ve come along in our food allergy world regarding the chocolate choices out there! In the last eleven years of managing food allergies, I’ve never seen such a large good-looking group of choices. Yay for us! Many of these companies were started by folks like us, parents with children with food allergies.
Later this week, I’ll blog about non-food ideas for classrooms that we’ve used in the past that we’re winners, but for now, let’s talk chocolate!
Special Note: as always, read allergen statements closely and call these companies to confirm the allergens and risk of cross contact to your specific health and dietary needs.
Food Allergy Friendly Chocolate Valentine’s Day Hearts and gifts…
Vermont Nut free Valentine’s Day candy: there are NO NUTS in this facility, but dairy, egg and wheat can be found. Many years ago the only way to give or receive a heart box, was to buy one and make your chocolates. Look how far we’ve come.
Divvies Valentine themed Candy: No peanuts, no tree nuts, no egg, no dairy and gluten-free! This is the favorite chocolate for my kids, especially their caramel corn and Bingo bars.
Amanda’s Own Valentine’s Day Chocolates: No dairy, no egg, no gluten and NO PEANUT OR TREE NUTS! Her shaped chocolates are soooo darling!
Royal Gift Basket Company offers many different types of allergen friendly combination such as Gluten free baskets, gluten and peanut and tree nut free and dairy free. They offer a huge selection, so I have probably missed some more details of what they offer.Valentine’s Day classroom ideas Inspired food allergy friendly Valentine’s Day ideas
