Best dairy-free chocolate chips?

What is the finest parve baking chocolate ship now available?

      Haven't used as many brands other than Trader Joe's (a"h), but for a really fine quality chip if I want to go all out, I use the 365 brand (Whole Foods) dark chocolate mini chunks. They are 70 percent cocoa. I think they might have a lower cocoa content chip there too, but I haven't looked lately.

        Yes, those are excellent, but pricey.

          Thanks. I don't go to Whole Foods often, they have replaced most of the kosher brands they used to carry with store brands that are not supervised. But the nearest Whole Foods ids a lot closer than the nearest Shoprite, so I guess I'll go there.

          I'll miss you, Joe.

    2. Whole Foods vegan chocolate chips are pareve and very, very good.

      1. Rabbi Don Yoel Levy was interviewed at length and gives details why the hashgocha was changed. You can read it here:

          Yeah, the interview ran at Voz iz neias. The thing is, Trader Joe needs to get the plant to change the production line back to the old way, because the chips were wonderful and the price was right.

        2. Besides the vegan chips, Whole Foods carries another brand called "Enjoy Life". It is parve, but more costly than the store brand. I have also found that brand at SuperTarget! Haven't tried it, but it is an option.

            My Ralph's carries them. They cost almost $5/bag.

              I'm sure there are regional differences. My SuperTarget charges $3.79.

          2. also if u live in the metroNY area...I had found parve choc chips at Fairway-in the organic section. Granted this was a while ago so they may no longer carry them (or they also may have crossed over into dairy!) They also were somewhat pricey-compared to TJ's. But now that I'm desperate, I may need to go back to them.
