Before you give a chocolate of the month club membership to someone, make sure you know whether that person is allergic to nuts. Since nut allergies can be serious, it's important to make sure that those allergic to nuts don't eat foods that may contain any traces of nuts. If you are worried about nuts, contact the individual chocolate company for information about their manufacturing procedures.
