Vegan Christmas: Fairtrade Pralines at Oxfam

Oxfam vegan pralines dairy-free

Organic, Vegan, Fairtrade and Handmade - pralines from the Christmas range at Oxfam. These could hardly be more removed from the Poundland confectionery we covered yesterday, but then the price is a little different too. Six quid for six. That's the same cost as our entire haul from Poundland. The vegan market is polarised like that...really cheap stuff (with no butter or other 'luxuries'), or really expensive stuff aimed at the discerning shopper. Are they worth the outlay?



Inside the pack you have six rather large pralines... you'd struggle to eat them whole. They're sugar-dusted which is unusual, and this gives them a very crunchy shell. The chocolate is pretty thick and comprises just under half of the weight of these pralines.


Inside is a firm hazelnut praline centre. The praline is good but it's quite hard to discern either the texture or the taste of it because of those sugar crystals from the shell. On the whole, they're an enjoyable experience though.

Whether these are worth the money depends on what you're comparing them too, and who they're for. As a gift or an ethical stocking filler we'd suggest they're a good buy, but for the best artisan chocolates, we think you could do a little better elsewhere.

Verdict: Reassuringly expensive
