I got sent a couple of blocks of Oat Milk Ecuardorian chocolate by new vegan producer Ethico recently. The block is part of a range of four flavours. They also do a block which is oat milk with raisins and two Peruvian dark chocolate blocks one of which also contains cranberries. The blocks range from £2.99-£3.99 and there's free postage on orders over £20.
Picture the scene. It's a Friday night and Matt and I have finally sat down on the sofa at the end of a long, busy week. We were watching 'Have I Got News For You' when we both popped a piece of the chocolate into our mouths. Seconds later we turned to each other and exclained 'WOW'! With this chocolate Ethico have brought a great new addition to the vegan chocolate range. It's serious melt in the mouth stuff. Matt uttered the words 'dairy milk' but for me it surpasses dairy milk and reminds me more of what I remember a good quality Belgium milk choc with a fairly high cocoa content tasting like. There's good news for allergy sufferers in that the chocolate is manufactured in a nut free environment and the bar we tried was soya free although not gluten free. At the moment the bars are just available through the website although I suspect we'll be seeing them at vegan fairs and other places in 2015.
