Vermont Nut Free Chocolates

American Made Since 1998

Gail Elvidge & Mark Elvidge

Grande Isle, Vermont
My love for my son and my passion for chocolate inspired me to start this company - safe, gourmet chocolates for those with any nut allergy!
Food,

Tell us about your business.

I am the mother of a little boy with a potentially life-threatening peanut allergy. Since learning of my son's allergy, I have had to thoroughly read ingredient labels to assure that all of the foods that he eats are safe for him. The food product I have had the most difficulty finding that would be safe for someone with a nut allergy is chocolate. I began making chocolate for my son to enjoy so I could be certain of the ingredients that are being used. At Vermont Nut Free Chocolates we only make nut free products. I fully understand the severity of this allergy and take extreme care to assure that only the finest nut free ingredients are used in our chocolates. I truly believe that people with nut allergies, and non-allergic chocoholics alike, will find these chocolates to be among the finest tasting gourmet chocolates they have ever eaten!

What makes your business stand out?

What makes our business unique is we have taken the potentially life threatening issue of peanut and tree nut allergies and created a solution for tens of thousands families all around the Globe who have family members that suffer from it.

What's the best business advice you've received?

The best business advice I have ever received is to surround yourself with bright people, use networking to the fullest extent possible and to always keep your eyes open for new opportunities.
