When I stopped consuming dairy products 15 years ago I thought my days of being a “chocoholic” were done. It was 1997 in Brazil and there weren’t too many options of dairy-free chocolates around. The only options available were a few bar of dark chocolate and that’s what I’ve ate for many years. I like dark chocolate and don’t mind eating them at all but I’ve always missed the “milky” chocolate option.
Since I’ve moved to Europe – and the fact that from 1997 until now vegan options have improved a lot – I’m able to get amazing chocolate options and this is a plus in my vegan diet. I do not live thinking about the things I don’t eat and don’t miss anything anymore, but when I see the opportunity of eating a vegan option of some food I used to love, yes, I am happier.
All this talk about chocolates brings me to one of my favorite chocolate brands: Moo Free Chocolates. The UK brand offers bars (chocolate bars and Mini Moos), drops, Easter eggs, pralines and even Christmas chocolate goodies. Their products are largely organic and fair trade. Recently a friend brought us a box of their “Luxury Dairy Free Chocolate Pralines” and they’ve melt my chocoholic mouth and heart. Each beautiful box contains 12 chocolates filled with caramelised hazelnut centre and then coated with dairy free chocolate. Chocolate that tastes like milk chocolate but without harming any animal. The filling is smooth and creamy. I’m sure me – and you – could eat the whole box in a few minutes!
These pralines are an amazing gift (and would look great in a box to be sent at our Vegan Package Swap!) but don’t think about stopping there with Moo Free products. Their range of chocolates is all delicious and I’m always up for more if you ask me.
