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.

Dairy-free Chocolate Treats for Easter

Easter, that respected and meaningful time for stuffing yourself full of choccy. However, if you – or the person you are buying for – are intolerant to dairy or figure you are too cool (old) for an easter egg, you might like these dairy-free chocolate treats instead.

Dartmoor Chilli Farm is family owned farm using green energy and no pesticides or herbicides. They have an inventive selection of chilli chocolate bars with piquancy thermometers on the label so you can see exactly what you are letting yourself in for. From the mildest chilli lime or orange dark chocolate bars, to the hottest Carolina Reaper chilli chocolate o_O  As you can probably tell from the mostly empty packet, this basic Dark Chilli Chocolate is my favourite.

Dairy free, gluten free and organic, these truffles are little squares of heaven. To be honest, I wasn’t sure about the dusting of bitter powdered choccy on the outside at first but one bight revealed a sweet, nutty ganache centre. I also adore the sophisticated packaging which makes them a lovely gift for someone.

These sweet, squishy treats are the type of things you would bring round to a loved ones or a friends to share. They are a good introduction for anyone who’s still not sold on the salted-chocolate thing or doesn’t have much of a crazy sweet-tooth as the flavours are well balanced.
