Review: Go Max Go - 2Fer Bar

Go Max Go - 2Fer Bar

Vegan Twix style bar with shortbread, caramel and chocolate. Single bar rather than twin fingers. This is the latest addition to Go Max Go's veganized range of chocolate bars. They already do passable vegan imitations of Mars, Snickers, Milky Way, Bounty and Peanut Butter Cups. The Twix bar should have been an easy one...

Review: iChoc Chocolate

iChoc Chocolate

A range of faux-milk chocolate bars in various flavours. The iChoc brand was launched last year by the German chocolate maker Vivani. The parent company makes vegan chocolate under the Vivani brand name (reviewed here), but they do also sell dairy chocolate, so decided vegans should have their own brand line. Thus iChoc was born as a pure vegan range.

Review: Madécasse Festive Chocolate...

Madécasse Chocolate - Hazelnut, Orange & Cranberry

We recently gave a rave review of this Madagascan chocolate, and the company got in touch afterwards to offer us some seasonal flavours with a festive twist. Blogging's a hard life sometimes eh. Naturally, we snatched their hand off, so here's our review of the Hazelnut and Orange Cranberry flavour bars.

Review: Madécasse Chocolate

Madécasse Vegan Chocolate

New chocolate brands come and go, but rarely do we say oh! this is good! This chocolate is Fair Trade with a difference - they don't just buy fair-trade cocoa, but also make the chocolate over there too. The Brooklyn based company makes all of its chocolate in Madagascar, employing over 200 people. Of their 6 product lines, only 1 isn't vegan.

New: "Lots of This, None of That" Chocolate

Plamil have launched a new UTZ Certified line of faux milk chocolate, with reduced sugar. The Plamil brand is hidden on the back of the pack, with the "Lots of This, None of That" branding adorning the front. The company sent us a few bars over to check out, so let's get chocolatey:

New: Hotel Chocolat 'Milk-Free Milk Chocolate'

Vegan easter egg made with almond milk. This new No Dairy chocolate range has launched this week just in time for Easter. It's not labelled 'dairy-free', but it is labelled vegan. Hotel Chocolat have eschewed rice powder and soya to replace the milk, in favour of almond powder, something we haven't seen before.

Review: Booja Booja 'chilled selection'

Booja Booja - Chilled Selection - Chocolate Truffles

New sophisticated mini boxes of truffles in bright and vibrant colours that ditch the old fashioned styling of the traditional lines. These chocolates are sold chilled - that is you'll find them in the dessert chiller at Waitrose or in your local wholefood shop. The fridge treatment is necessary because of the new 'delicate' flavours:

Vegan Christmas: Elizabeth Shaw Gingerbread Crisp Chocolates

Elizabeth Shaw - Gingerbread Crisp - Dark Chocolates

Limited Edition honeycomb crisp chocolates, perfect for the festive season. These dark chocolates are much more versatile than the mint ones, which are usually sidelined as after dinner chocolates:

Review: Ethicoco Oat Milk Chocolate

Ethicoco Oat Milk Chocolate

Faux milk chocolate, made with oat milk instead of the usual rice milk. Ethicoco are a startup bean-to-bar producer making all-vegan all-organic fair trade chocolate, from imported beans. The guys at Ethicoco were kind enough to send us a couple of sample bars for our review... and we're excited about it..

Review: Vivani Chocolate Bars

@VeganTownUK sent us a selection of these organic chocolate chunk bars to review, and we were only too happy to oblige. We've missed the quiet arrival of Vivani to UK shores, but a few other vegan bloggers rave about their chocolate. Vivani might sound Italian, but the company is from northern Germany. We've got four flavours to check out:

Review: Pernigotti Gianduiotti

Pernigotti Gianduiotti

Individually wrapped gianduja chocolates from Stylish Italian confectionery for the discerning vegan. Pernigotti make both milk and dark chocolate gianduiotti. If you're offered one, and if they're not in their bag, look for the red wrappers, as the milky ones are wrapped in gold paper.

Review: Eti Tutku Mosaic Biscuits

Eti - Tutku - Chocolate Cream Mosaic Biscuits

From @vegantuckbox this month. Crunchy biscuits with a creamy chocolate filling. These biscuits are Turkish, and the ingredients seem to vary depending on where you are in the world - the US version has eggs and milk in. This pack is vegan, but you need to read the German or French ingredients if you want to see for yourself.

Father's Day: Venchi Chocolate Truffle Cigar

Venchi - CUBA - Cacao Aromatico (Chocolate Truffle Cigar - Aromatic) have the perfect Father's Day gift: dairy-free gianduja cigars from Italian confectioner Venchi. The folks at VeganTown sent us a sample cigar to review (thank you folks!), while you can get yours for under a fiver. Father's Day this year is Sunday June 15th:

Review: Ombar Coco Mylk

Vegan Easter: Choices White Choc Easter Bunny

Celtic Chocolate - Choices - Dairy-Free White Choc Easter Bunny

Single dairy-free easter bunny from the Irish firm Celtic Chocolates. Vegan white chocolate is getting less rare as products like these become a fixture on supermarket shelves. The dairy-free Choices range is one of the better tasting faux-milk and white chocolates.

Review: Lovechock Raw Chocolate Bar

Lovechock - Raw Chocolate Bar - Goji/Orange

Organic goji & orange flavoured 100% raw chocolate that arrived from Vegan Tuck Box. Four chunks of deeply dark looking chocolate, studded with pieces of goji and buckwheat (of all things to put in a chocolate bar). Dairy-free, soy-free and gluten-free.

Vegan Easter: Moo Free's Caramelised Hazelnut Nib Egg

Moo Free - Caramelised Hazelnut Nib - Dairy-Free Chocolate Easter Egg

Dairy-free chocolate Easter egg with pieces of caramelised hazelnut embedded in the faux milk chocolate. This is new for 2014 as an Easter egg, although you can buy chocolate bars of this product all year round. We loved a caramel Easter egg last year, so does this one measure up?
