Bouja Bouja Organic Truffle Selection No2

I bought this. Bouja Bouja Truffle Selection (138g £12.98) online from Vegan Town based in Sheffield to treat myself for Easter. They arrived within two days! Organic and dairy free, these taste of sheer quality, especially when kept cool or chilled. I keep them under our kitchen sink – to keep them cool – not to hide them – mostly.

The packaging is made of that bouji cardboard that almost feels velvety. It hinges and has a card inside showing what flavour each truffle is and where it is.

Unfortunately I did a rather ‘Dyspraxic fantastic’ thing and knocked them all over so now it’s a lucky dip! Erm, yay!?

The ginger ones are strong so be prepared. My faves are the ones involving nuts and caramel. The Rhubarb and Vanilla Fool taste gently fruity and make a nice contrast.

These are such a luxe treat for someone instead of the usual egg and not crazy expensive like some I’ve seen.

Meridian Cocoa and Hazelnut Butter

Meridian Cocoa & Hazelnut Butter (170g) is the best dairy free chocolate spread I’ve ever tried and the fact it has hazelnuts makes it taste even more like Nutella, which, if we are being honest, is what most of us are aiming for. I’ve tried other chocolate spreads that were very dark and bitter or the taste of fruit sweetener was very obvious and rather odd.

As you can see the texture is quite thick (once you give it a good stir when you first pop open the lid). I slap a thick layer between two pieces of sliced bread and that’s it. You don’t really need anything else with it, although sliced banana is a nice addition.

This does not contain any…

  • Palm oil
  • GMO ingredients
  • Artificial colouring
  • Artificial flavouring
  • Artificial preservative
  • Refined sugar
  • Trans fats
  • Rapeseed oil (which does not encourage biodiversity)

I don’t want an expensive Free From easter egg this year, instead I’ll be having this for breakfast or lunch and maybe supper.
