Hi All:

I was thinking of making some choc. orange bread soon and I was looking at choc. drops and the labels.

I am not really into choc. at all (Oh the blashpemy :P ...) but I see that Hershey's dark and milk choc. contain a flavoring called "vanillin" - I haven't been able to find out anything about it, though and I wonder if any of you chocaholics here have any clue about it.

Thanks!!

I use Nestles chips with no problem. Never liked Hersheys as much.

Is the Nestle the one in the yellow bag?

Then I think the brand I was looking at was Nestle.

Told ya I hardly ate chocolate!!

I'm glad that they are okay.

I'll give them a try.

I am just dying to know what vanillin is, though!!

As I understand it it's some kind of artificial vanilla flavoring.

You know I just found an article on Wikipedia.

Artificial vanillin is apparently synthesized from lignin, which is what makes paper acidic.

It's gluten free but it's scary, no??

Got out an open yellow bag of semi-sweet chips and my reading glasses. They don't list vanillin but "natural flavors". Only used artificial vanilla (on purpose) to make white icing as real vanilla makes it biege.
