Nestlé Toll House Plant Based Morsels vs Allergen Free Morsels
I was a bit confused when a Nestlé representative contacted us about this new chocolate chip line. Are these just their allergen free morsels with a new name and package? They were quick to respond to my questions:
Are Nestlé Toll House Plant Based Morsels replacing the Nestlé Toll House Allergen Free Morsels?
No, this is a brand new line and both lines of the dairy-free chocolate chips will continue to be available!
What’s the Difference Between the Toll House Plant Based Morsels and the Allergen Free Morsels?
The allergen-free morsels are produced in a dedicated facility, free from the top food allergens, including dairy, soy, nuts, and wheat. The plant-based morsels are made without dairy ingredients and are produced according to kosher pareve standards, but they are not made in a dedicated facility and do contain oats and soy (in the semi-sweet morsels only). The former are more rigidly produced with allergen safety in mind, while the latter are focused more directly on vegan and plant-based trends.

They don’t taste exactly like I remember Nestle Tollhouse chips, but are tasty. They have a different flavor with the oat flour, but are good for snacking on or in cookies. The dark ones are notably dark with a slight bitterness, while the semi-sweet are sweeter, but not as sugary as some brands. I like the balance of the latter better.
