Doisy & Dam Good Mini Eggs Review
Following on from my review of the new Doisy and Dam D&D's and Ballers chocolates, I thought I'd review their new take on Mini Eggs - a vegan friendly, lower sugar dark chocolate version! You can find these in Holland and Barrett stores for £1.79 or so for 80g.
They're clearly positioning themselves as a vegan alternative to Cadbury Mini Eggs, and contain 70% cocoa dark chocolate which has 30% less sugar than the leading market product (Cadbury's). It all sounds good, and thankfully even though I was very disappointed in their D&D's and Ballers range, these surprised me!
They have classic Mini Egg style crunchy pastel shells, and the dark chocolate within is quite rich in taste. They're much better than the D&D's which I was surprised by, perhaps the higher ratio of chocolate to shell works in their favour. These are highly nommable, easy to eat one after the other but they do leave you feeling satisfied faster than something more sugary.
As nice as these are, I do think a dairy free version of milk chocolate would be better, after all it's what you want from a product like this right? But kudos to Doisy and Dam for this healthier option as it does expand the range of Free From products, and hopefully other companies will follow suit.
Overall, these were a pleasant surprise and if you're looking for a vegan Easter treat I'd recommend them.
