Review: Beyond Dark Chocolate Drops

Beyond Dark vegan Chocolate Drops

In a break from our white chocolate theme, we're going dark...beyond dark. We spotted these dairy-free chocolate drops in Holland & Barrett. They're not raw chocolate, which seems to be everywhere at the moment, but they are made in a special 'slow and gentle' roasting process which claims to preserve more antioxidants. They're certainly very dark to look at, but are they the drops of 'pure pleasure' promised on the packet?

The texture of the drops is pretty hard, but they do melt in the mouth. We also tested their ability to melt in cooking, which they did just fine. You'd have to be looking for an intense very dark chocolate taste to put these in your cupcake recipe though. They would be pretty good as a cupcake decoration, as a counter-balance to a sweet vegan buttercream.

These are very different to most dairy-free buttons which are aimed at kids, and will appeal to dark chocolate lovers looking for a quick cocoa fix.

Verdict: Come over to the dark side
