Holidays seem to be an especially difficult time of the year when it comes to parents of kids with food allergies. The main culprit seems to be that so many holidays have a foundation centered around the consumption of food. Parties, meals, desserts and holiday specific treats can make things very challenging. The hard part is when you think of Easter…you immediately think of big, giant Chocolate Easter bunnies. Now it is time to change your thinking: Think dairy-free, nut-free, gluten-free, egg-free Chocolate Easter bunnies.
A few years back, we discovered a great place to tackle the Holiday of Easter. Premium Chocolatiers is a company whose core mission is around the concept of providing high quality chocolates to those who prefer to avoid milk, nut, gluten and egg products. Their process is quite extensive and you can read more about it by visiting the Premium Chocolatier story section on their website.
The bad news is that if your child suffers from a Soy allergy, you may not have any options here. But if your kids suffer from a Milk and Egg allergy or a Nut allergy (like our kids)…then this may be a great option when it comes time for Easter. We have ordered from them in the past and their products are very high quality.
So with Easter around the corner, take the time to check out Premium Chocolatiers for your chocolate bunny needs. You will not be disappointed.
