Nut free food: chocolate, sweets, ice cream and lollies

Are you looking for nut free chocolates? Or a trustworthy brand of sweets? Or stood in front of an ice cream van, do you need to know which ice lolly is safe?

If so, check out the list below which includes both:

  • Dedicated “nut free” food brands; and
  • Details of other food manufacturers which, according to their product labels or information on their website, do produce some nut free products.

Manufacturers do change their recipes (and their production arrangements), so please do check the product label for yourself each time, and make your own enquiries of the manufacturer, if you are in any doubt about whether something is safe.

I will add to the list as I come across more nut free brands and products … and do let me know if you have any product recommendations!

Please see the main nut free food page, for a complete alphabetised list of all the nut free food brands listed on Nutmums.com.

  2. Hello, I also make nut free chocolates, the brand is Cocoa Libre. My husband is allergic to peanuts! I have had all my products lab tested to make sure they are completely free of traces so you can enjoy in confidence!

  3. Hello my daughter has a severe nut allergy who investigated and discovered New Forest Ice Cream. They claim that there nut free products contain no nuts, are made in separate environment with no contamination and that all their staff have a nut free policy, even the office staff. Are you familiar with this brand and have any of your subscribers had experience of the New Forest products?

    Many thanks

  4. First off, this website is a fantastic tool for people like myself, thanks so much for all the information!
    I want to make others briefly aware about a recent experience that I had with Cadbury’s chocolate. Cadbury’s have recently changed their “Timeout” chocolate bar to the “Timeout Wafer,” with a revised ingredients. While the ingredients list also warns that it “may contain nuts,” I’m personally not one to be as cautious to those statements because I don’t want to restrict the chocolates I’ve always loved to eat. To those who also acknowledge but don’t restrict themselves or their children from foods with cautionary labels, I would advise to remain clear of these new Timeout Wafer Bars. I’m not sure whether it’s an issue of cross-contamination or failing to include the use of nuts in its ingredients, but I’ve had an allergic reaction to this chocolate bar, twice now, and it wasn’t a pleasant experience, for obvious reasons.
