Vego Vegan Dairy Free Hazelnut Chocolate Bar
Recently, Grocery Gems did a review of this Vego Vegan Hazelnut chocolate bar, and after reading her review I immediately wanted to track this down. She described it as being like Nutella which sounded like the best thing ever to me!
I found it in a local charity shop (of all places) that sells vegan products, and decided to go for the "mini" version for £1.69 (there's also a larger bar).
The bar comes in two large, substantial blocks which are very thick and chunky. Splitting them apart revealed some whole hazelnuts embedded in the chocolate:
With it being a vegan bar of course it didn't contain any dairy, but you'd never guess! It tasted so rich and creamy and hazelnutty I was in heaven...Grocery Gems description of Nutella was spot on! The whole hazelnuts further added to the luxury, reminding me a little of Ferraro Rocher. This is a very rich and indulgent bar indeed and I certainly didn't miss the dairy!
Overall, I have to say this is a fantastic chocolate bar, and I'm sad I've never even noticed it until now. I think the packaging is what sadly lets it down...it looks boring and uninviting and doesn't reflect how nice he chocolate is at all! Do Vego want this to remain a vegan secret?! Maybe so...but I'm sure glad I gave this a try, it beats many chocolate bars with dairy and is far superior. I'd be happy to become vegan myself knowing I could eat treats like this!
RATING: 8.5 out of 10.
