In brief: Yes

Baker's semi-sweet by kraft is peanut-free.
I have patients tell me that trader joe's sells one as well. To make sure, i would call the manufacturer to verify and of course, always read the labels.

In brief: Caution w/ chocolate

Although not formally proven, in my experience children with allergies that manifest with skin symptoms might have increased itching with eating spices (ie pepper, chili), citrus (ie orange), tomato/strawberry, and chocolate.
This is not due to true allergy though.

In brief: Maybe/maybe not

Once a kid has demonstrated food allergies to one product they are more likely to have allergies or intolerance to others.
They may not react in the same way, as nut allergies can be dramatic and life threatening. The only way to feel comfortable about some of these foods is to run blood or skin tests. Most kids would probably have no problems, but some would.
