Review: Sainsbury's FreeFrom Chocolate Mint Crisps


Ever get the feeling you've had something before? These after dinner mint chocolates will be very familiar if you've eaten the Celtic Chocolates version... which we reviewed just last month. Companies like Celtic repackage their chocolates for supermarkets to sell as their own brand and we're sure that has happened here. Sainsbury's also sell a chocolate bar remarkably similar to a Celtic bar. If you missed our recent Celtic review, read on:




We like what Sainsbury's have done with the packaging... stacking the chocolates makes them stand out and look very festive. Inside, while Celtic wrap their chocs in branded Gold foil, Sainsbury's are happy with plain green foil.

The chocolates are very good, but not quite as good as market leader Elizabeth Shaw's (currently listed as not vegan). The mint crisp is sadly lacking in these 'mint crisps'... which have just tiny pieces of glittery sugar in them providing the texture. We much prefer the larger pieces of mint crisp you get with a Lizzy Shaw.

These are good chocolates though, labelled vegan and dairy-free (and gluten-free) and if you've got any room in your belt after Christmas for a little more confectionery, we can recommend them for your New Year's dinner table.

Verdict: Very good, but could be crispier


Veganoo Score: ★★★★☆
