Short answer: it depends. Some have no dairy. Most have soy, IIRC. I don't think wheat. Even if you buy from the bulk bins, they list the ingredients on the labels on the bins. Always read labels. Then read them again. And then one more time. Not that I've had to learn this the hard way... *sigh*

ETA: a quick google search revealed many ingredient lists. All of them had soy (the least was soy lethicin). Some had dairy. Some had wheat. Yep, just gotta read the ingredients every time, sorry mama.

Thanks! I know I am kicking myself now! It is so hard to feed my kids and I was hoping for something that I could add to cookies etc..

I'm not sure about wheat and soy for these two, but at least you have a lead, if you haven't already tried these.

1. Ghiradelli SEMISWEET chocolate chips. (I don't have the package with me, so I don't remember whether it contains lecithin.)

2. Sunspire brand makes dairy-free chips. (Again, I don't have a package right here, so I'm not certain about the soy and wheat.)

If chocolate is ok, but soy and wheat are not, see if you can find "Enjoy Life" chocolate chips... they're gluten, dairy and soy free. You can order them online at allergygrocer.com.
