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.
'Rice in Paradise' R.I.P. rice milk white chocolate with cape gooseberries (physalis) from Austrian chocolate specialists Zotter. This is the second Zotter product to arrive from Vegan Tuck Box. Zotter appear to specialise in the 'unusual', and this is certainly like no other chocolate:
A dairy-free white chocolate Easter egg with buttons. Celtic and their sister brand Choices have a monopoly on the dairy-free Easter section in Holland and Barrett stores, but it's a fine selection they offer so we're not complaining. Vegans can waltz in to a H&B and choose milk, dark or white chocolate eggs this year - is this a first? We naturally opted for the most exotic choice... the white chocolate egg:
More from our recent trip to Vx. Vegan white Chocolate with dark chocolate 'smarties'. German company Vantastic make a large range of vegan foods and some of it is available in the UK through Vx and Vegan Store. We recently reviewed their vegan white chocolate spread which was a little disappointing... and didn't contain any cocoa. These white chocolate bars have cocoa butter as the principal ingredient so at least they're authentic... but are they any good?
More vegan white chocolate...we can't move for the stuff. Luna bars are the nutritional cereal bars aimed at women, from the Clif Bar company. Smaller and with fewer calories than Clif bars, these are still pretty hefty cereal bars. The white chocolate is no small part of this bar either...besides the decoration on the front there is a lovely thick dipped white choc coating on the bottom.
Continuing with our dairy-free white chocolate theme for this week, today's review is Vantastic white chocolate spread. You'd use this in the same way as nutella-style spreads....on bread or toast. The German spread is available online and has a long shelf life thanks to a good proportion of fat and sugar. What's immediately odd about this stuff is....it has no chocolate ingredients whatsoever...
A choice of three dairy-free white chocolate bars is another sign of how vegan options have improved lately. Not too long back, non-dairy white chocolate was a novelty, but now Sweet William, Plamil and Organica are battling it out for your custom. As we like to do here at Veganoo, we unwrapped the three bars and put them to the Taste Test.
