large bar or a small, but still pretty chunky bar, and not too long ago, Vego came out with a white chocolate version, and even a chocolate spread. Each one is to die for, and possibly a little too easy to eat.
The amount of dairy free chocolate has exploded over the past few years, and that's so exciting! But with there being so many on offer, which one do you choose when you're getting choice anxiety and there's someone waiting behind you to get to the shelf?
We tested 4 firm staff favourites, and gave them our rating.
It melts and is evocative of the creamy texture dairy chocolate can give and it isn't give you a dark chocolate taste, but it remains 100% vegan friendly. The hearty hazelnut chunks give it a crunch, and are quite sizable pieces too, so for that reason, I wouldn't recommend this one for those who don't do nuts. It now also comes in paper packaging, making it a plastic free vegan chocolate choice too! Hurrah!
Okay, so this one is dark. Like, really dark. It is actually 100% chocolate. To our surprise however, it isn't bitter. In fact, it provides an oddly satisfying crumble as you bite into it, has a fully bodied flavour, and it may be useful as an after lunch pick-me-up as it contains 43mg of caffeine.
If you're looking for a sweet chocolate treat, this isn't the one to try, but if you're looking to give your palette something interesting and pure, untainted by sugar, vanilla or other flavours, give it a go!
Tony's Chocoloney is a venture tackling inequality in the cocoa industry with their fairtrade bars. Some of them aren't vegan friendly, but their dark chocolate & sea salt one is, and is delicious!
It's not as creamy as Vego, but the sea salt gives it a little extra something and helps to balance its sweetness. Again, it contains nuts, but it doesn't effect the taste, but one to avoid if its an allergy concern for you.
