I recently picked up a package of Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate chips. In the past I slide right past them and take Hershey's trusted brand. But I often reread labels of brands I was once disappointed in reading that "contains nuts" or "made on equipment with." I was shocked -- probably talked aloud to myself in the store "that can't be right" after reading the Nestle label. No statement about nuts anywhere.
I did a search online to see if there was any buzz about Nestle Toll House chocolate chips being nut free. I couldn't find anything, so I emailed the company as I have done many times in the past when I want a complete and honest answer. Here's what I received:
Thank you for contacting Nestlé® Toll House® Morsels.
We understand your concern, however the 75th anniversary packaging is correct.
