Vanilla Chips

I found a recipe for Dreamsicle Bars. It calls for Tang and vanilla chips. Does anyone have any idea where to find vanilla chips. I've seen peanut butter, cinnamon, white chocolate and cherry, but not vanilla. Help please.

Apparently Hershey's makes them - they're called Vanilla Milk Chips. I don't know if they're readily available at supermarkets, though.

King Arthur has them in their catalog -

www.bakerscatalog.com

Nestle's make white chips, and so does 'Mrs.Field' if you can find them.

I can't find any reference to vanilla chips in the King Arthur catalogue, or anywhere else. Many chocolate and chocolate-based products use vanilla, but an actual vanilla chip? I can't see how such a thing is possible, unless they're just referring to an ordinary chocolate chip with extra vanilla added. In fact, I suspect vanilla chips are just white chocolate chips with extra vanilla.

true that it's not really chocolate - it's got something crucial eliminated (can't think what). Never liked the stuff myself. Gimme the dark brown semi- or bittersweet every time.

Not a true chocolate at all. It is, rather, a blend of sugar, cocoa butter, milk solids, lecithin and vanilla. If a product does not contain cocoa butter, it isn't "white chocolate."

White chocolate is mostly cocoa butter, with some vanilla and milk added. It contains no chocolate liqueur, which is why it is not considered chocolate, although I find this concept rather strange, much like claiming that orange peel isn't really orange, because it doesn't contain any pulp.
