I’m unsure what vegans do or don’t eat, but if they don’t use milk, here’s what I learned the hard way last week. I had an allergic reaction to my oil-based chocolate chip cookies. I felt shocked. After all, I did not put milk in the cookies! Eventually, it occurred to me to wonder if my brand of bittersweet chocolate chips is made with milk.
I can’t find the exact link right now, but I read online that the Ghiradelli Bittersweet chips are made on a line that uses milk. Problem solved, but what a huge disappointment. I can’t imagine living forever without a chocolate chip cookie. I don’t know what this means about bar chocolate for cooking. Also don’t know what it means about Nestle’s chocolate chips. I haven’t researched either online yet. What I did find out is that there’s a chocolate chip product that’s milk-free and egg-free and free of some other things. Sorry, but I don’t recall the brand name. I think I found it by Googling.
