I would be happy to buy carob chips if someone made them dairy free and soy free and used a decent form of sugar. Does anyone out there want to start a business?
I would also be happy to buy carob chip cookie mix in a box like my favorite gluten free gingerbread cookies, but all I could find was mixes to make treats for dogs.
I am not a dog, and I am not a chocolate lover. But I used to enjoy chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chip ice cream. Please see my gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe if you want more history about why I can't eat chocolate.
With food restrictions, I always say there's a way to make something like what you miss. The trade off is do you have the time and energy to make it from scratch?
Thankfully these homemade carob chips are easy and don't take a really long time -- although I would still rather buy them if someone would make something I could eat!
With the cubes about half full or however it spread, it was perfect for making carob much like the pieces in the chocolate chunk cookies I ate many years ago

These might taste a little gritty compared to chocolate bars, but the texture is fine after they are baked in the cookies.
I've watched the food options at local grocery stores and via Amazon Fresh change dramatically over the past 15 years that I've been eating to avoid my food allergens. Hopefully some edible chocolate chip alternatives will show up there soon!
