Vermont Nut Free Chocolates, Founded by a Mom with a Mission

09/08/2017 04:07PM ● By Melanie Heisinger
With fall just around the corner, it’s time to start back-to-school planning. School-friendly snacks can be problematic with the number of nut and other allergies found in nearly every classroom these days. But Vermont Nut Free Chocolates offers delicious solutions with its selection of chocolates, trail mix, cookies, and more.

Vermont Nut Free was founded by a mom whose son has a peanut allergy. These products are perfect to send to school with kids, especially as schools become more aware of the dangers of nut allergies. The entire Vermont Nut Free line is crafted specifically to be safe for those with peanut or tree nut allergies, but all their products will be enjoyed by lovers of fine chocolates.
In addition to sweets for special treats, you can choose from a number of healthy snacks for school, work, or play including TANABAR, the nut-free granola bar, and Trail Mix—perfect for fall foliage hikes and as a snack after school and before soccer practice. All their products are available online and in select stores.

Need a little something special to say thank you? Vermont Nut Free has delicious chocolates for wedding and party favors with all wrapped up in beautiful boxes with ribbons. How about scrumptious pumpkin brownies for dessert or after school? See recipe below.
