Chocolate Emporium

I have been searching for a particular “Holy Grail” for some time now – allergy-safe, dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free white chocolate chips and butterscotch chips that I can use in baking for my allergic children. Chocolate Emporium just re-opened, under new management and they carry both options!

Chocolate Emporium

Chocolate Emporium, located at 4226 Mayfield Road South Euclid, Ohio 44121, has been making delicious kosher non-dairy (Parve) chocolates since 1993. They specialize in producing Dairy, gluten, nut, and egg free chocolates. In addition, they produce and design handmade chocolates and gifts for all occasions year round.  Read their allergy information here.

I will be able to make my Butterscotch-Oatmeal cookies again! And make modeling chocolate for my cakes!

Shuhei Restaurant

Dining Experience

shuhei restaurant
Our family recently enjoyed a birthday celebration in a separate dining area at Shuhei Restaurant in Beachwood. They were very accommodating to our nut, milk and egg allergies.  When making the reservation, our needs were clearly stated.  Upon arrival, we spoke to the chef, manager and our waitress. They allowed us to bring in our own birthday cake and were gracious about all of our needs.
