I love Moo Free chocolate so when mum surprised me with this for my Easter treat I was absolutely over the moon!
Now, I know that for people like me (that is people of the dairy-free persuasion) Easter treats can be a little bit lacklustre. Eggs are small and expensive, chocolate is bitter and crumbly and all your friends and family are tucking in to the most amazing looking creations from M&S!
Well, my plant-based friends, fear not!
Moo Free currently offer three Easter eggs – Bunnycomb (featured), Cheeky Orange, and Original Organic, on top of their established dairy-free chocolate range. All of their chocolate is dairy, gluten and GM free, as well as being vegetarian and vegan! Instead of using cow’s milk, Moo Free like the cows to ‘do their own thing’, and instead rice milk is used to create a truly creamy texture.
Now I’m going to be super honest, I’m not a big chocolate fan. (This may be why my transition to a plant-based lifestyle has been so easy).
However, I do enjoy the odd chocolatey treat now and then and I was definitely worried about finding a product that could give me that chocolatey vibe without being so obviously dairy free.
I needn’t have worried.
Moo Free chocolate is perfect.
Moo Free Easter Bunnycomb Egg
Hot damn! I really love the little box this piece of heaven comes in. Rosie Rabbit is so damn cute and the earthy vibe is just perfect. Simple yet informative, telling you all you need to know. I love it, I really do.
But, of course, its chocolate and we’re not interested in the box. We want some of the sweet stuff inside.
This cutesy bunny doesn’t disappoint.
The amazing people down at Moo Free have managed to infuse little bits of vegan honeycomb right into the shell giving this egg a gorgeous rich toffee flavour with little bits of crunch. Its so easy to see why this egg is multi-award winning!
When you first open the typical Easter egg foil you are pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous egg-shell patterned… egg shell. It really is so pretty, especially in light of classic spring patterns! When you break it open (easier said than done – I had to step on mine…) little flecks of ‘bunnycomb’ make up a pretty decent ratio of chocolate to toffee!
I’m going to admit something now: I had 75% of this egg for my breakfast on Easter Sunday morning. (Only 75%? Yeah.. though the egg is small it really packs a chocolatey punch. I couldn’t finish it all in one sitting!)
This egg is utterly delicious. Really and truly. I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a fabulous cruelty-free egg, or even someone just looking for an amazing Easter treat!
I look forward to trying another of their range next year – in the mean time I’m going to slowly make my way through their range of chocolate bars.
Do something in the spirit of Spring this Easter and get yourself one of these – animals (and your stomach) with thank you!
