Accidentally Allergy Friendly Foods
Some foods are accidentally allergy free. Accidentally allergy free means they were made without the use of dairy and nuts for reasons other than food allergies.
Many of these allergy friendly foods were made to have a shortlist of all natural products. Some were made to last long, so they exclude quick to spoil ingredients like dairy and peanuts.
A variety of “original flavor” crackers including Club, Ritz, and Tollhouse are dairy and nut free. They make a blank slate for a variety of snacks on top of snacks. You can add fruits, vegetables, and even hemp hearts to make an endless array of appetizers and treats.
Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
You may not think of these as a snack, but they are worth mentioning. Most people are surprised by the fact that crescent rolls are dairy free. If you play around with them you can make some fun recipes.
Be careful with these, only the originals are dairy free.
Orville Redenbacher’s Naturals Popcorn
Not all popcorn brands are covered in butter some are light and flavored with sea salt and avocado oil. Orville Redenbacher was going for natural and simple ingredients. As a result, we get a dairy and nut free snack that tastes better than the butter covered original.
Be sure to read each label carefully, not all Orville Redenbacher popcorn options are dairy free.
On our list of requirements crackers, crescent rolls, and natural popcorn don’t have a healthy element, but they are quick and easy.
Annie’s Fruit Snacks
Annie’s has a long list of allergy friendly foods, but some products contain dairy. The company aims to make organic foods that protect the planet. This means Annie’s doesn’t add unnecessary ingredients.
As a result, these kid friendly snacks are vegan and don’t contain any of the top 8 allergens. But be sure to check every label. Not all of Annie’s foods are dairy and nut free.

Sorry Oreo’s nothing diet friendly here, just a sweet treat that surprisingly doesn’t contain any dairy. With cream in the middle, it’s easy to think this chocolate snack contains milk. Oreo is serious about real cocoa in its products. Apparently not as serious about real cream though.
The only box that these treats check off on our list of requirements is that they taste great and sometimes that’s enough.
Dairy and Nut Free Salty Snacks
Popcorn or chips can be a quick go to if you don’t have a sweet tooth and want salty snacks.
Many popular chip brands are accidentally allergen free, but these are the “plain” flavors. You’d be surprised to find baked chips, like Ms. Vicki’s, contain milk and nut ingredients, so be cautious.
Since nuts offer protein, healthy fats, and fiber it’s important to find a replacement. One option is to include seeds in your diet that contain a similar nutritious profile. Try hemp seeds, chia seeds, and flax seeds for healthy benefits.
Hemp hearts come in a variety of flavors for all your snacking needs. All our flavors are free from dairy and nuts. Humming Hemp hemp hearts are also verified non-GMO, gluten free, top 8 free, and sesame free. If that’s not enough, naked and spicy hemp hearts are also vegan and paleo.
Naked Hemp Hearts
The natural nuttiness of hemp hearts gives you the opportunity to add any flavor you want. Hemp hearts can also be combined with any other snack. You can sprinkle them right on top of popcorn to add some protein.
If you’re more adventurous you can add spicy and honey hemp hearts to your snack recipes too. Or eat all three flavors right out of the bag.
Spicy Hemp Hearts
This smoky and spicy treat kicks up the flavor with pepper. It doesn’t have just any pepper it contains black pepper, smoked paprika, and guajillo pepper. Guajillo pepper is popular in Mexican cuisine. The spice comes from dried Marisol chili peppers. Guajillo adds a sweet medium heat to hemp hearts.
Honey Aleppo brings sweetness to hemp hearts with all the same certifications. The honey, sugar, and mixed spices give you a sweet treat with a little smoke and salt to finish. The natural nuttiness of hemp seeds is elevated with a flavor that will keep you snacking. Perfect to add to your granola recipes for even more flavor.
Hemp Protein Bars
Hemp protein bars also come in a variety of flavors including almond and chocolate. If you are allergic to dairy, you may also exclude chocolate because milk is often added to cacao. However, even chocolate hemp protein bars don’t contain milk, but it does contain almonds.
Three of the five flavors are top 8 allergen free, but if you have a tree nut allergy there are two flavors you need to stay away from. With the variety of flavors, you are sure to find an allergy safe treat that you’ll love.
Honey & Cinnamon
All of our protein bars were sweetened by the bees, but one bar focuses on honey. The simple ingredients in the honey & cinnamon bar make it a favorite for Humming Hemp fans. The honey & cinnamon protein bar has four easy to pronounce ingredients.
Hemp seeds, raw honey, cinnamon, and sea salt are all you need. When you search for allergy free snacks the fewer ingredients the better.
Pumpkin Seed & Spice
You can never get enough seeds. With everyone craving pumpkin spice we’ve got a treat you’ll fall for all year round. Why only enjoy the organic pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and cloves in November.

Lavender Pistachio & Blueberry
This combination of flavors will knock your socks off. Lavender and blueberry were meant to be together. The simple ingredients list contains raw honey, pistachios, blueberries, sea salt, and lavender. Of course, it starts with protein-packed hulled hemp seeds.
Be careful with this one if you are allergic to tree nuts because it contains pistachios.
Almond & Chocolate
Our chocolate is dairy free. We love real organic cocoa that doesn’t contain milk. The almond chocolate bar does contain almonds, so it’s not for those who are allergic to tree nuts.
