Nestlé Toll House unveils allergen-free chocolate chips made with only 3 ingredients
Praise be! The kids can finally eat the cookies.
In a major win for people with allergies everywhere, Nestlé Toll House unveiled a new three-ingredient chocolate chip free of the eight major food allergens.
The company's kicking peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish to the curb for this new product. Instead, it's making the morsels with "cocoa butter, pure cane sugar and 100% real chocolate," according to Nestlé Toll House.
The "Simply Delicious" chocolate chips will be available for purchase in most stores starting June. Offered in semi-sweet and dark chocolate, the new line will sell at about $5.
You'll be able to easily identify the bag by looking for a teal banner splayed across the packaging, a color widely recognized as a symbol for allergen-free foods.
“Simply Delicious Morsels are a great option for bakers who want to feel confident that the ingredients they are using are high-quality, taste great and are safe for all to enjoy," Haig Basmadjian said, the company's marketing director.
The standard, non-allergen-free chocolate chips aren't going anywhere and will still be shelved at stores.
