Tesco Vegan Strawberry Fromage Frais

I've had a fair few bad experiences with vegan yogurts, sometimes they are horribly watery, they leave this almost acrid after taste, and sometimes they are just plain rubbish! But recently I was informed that I had a serious issue with my bones and that I needed to consume more calcium to rectify sed problem, so yogurts it is!

I'm not going to lie here, it was the unbelievably cute packaging which drew me into buying these yogurts, that and the fact it was strawberry flavour. The yogurt is actually a fromage frais so this means it is a little thicker than regular yogurt. The serving size was quite adequate and left me feeling fully satisfied.
The flavour is lovely, it is perfectly natural and fruity with enough sweetness to balance the creaminess, you probably couldn't tell that these were dairy free if you were just given a little pot of it with no description.

I can't wait to try the rest of this range from Tesco because these were simply fabulous!

OmBar Mylk Buttons

It's a strange yet very true, that chocolate tastes even better in button form. I don't know what it is, maybe it's the bit of whimsy it adds to the whole experience or maybe that it makes it all last a little bit longer? I don't know if I'm totally honest but I'm not going to contest it!
Here is a little bit of information about the lovely people at OmBar;

''Our chocolate is not only sourced from the best of the Ecuadorian cocoa farms, it is also raw. We like to keep it that way, our methods ensure that we preserve as much of natures original goodness as possible - hence why we have six times more flavanols than comparable chocolate brands. We treat our chocolate like a health food - because it is - and therefore we only use the healthiest ingredients such as unrefined coconut sugar, real fruit and live cultures.''

The buttons come in a lovely little bag and I can't help but admire the packaging, it is such good quality and really does set the tone for the whole brand. The serving size is brilliant and because of the incredibly high quality and richness of the chocolate you feel instantly satisfied.
The chocolate itself is amazing. It is so creamy with lovely flavours of coconut bursting through, yet simultaneously feeling subtle enough for you to fully enjoy the cocoa tones. I've never had a chocolate like this and honestly, after trying this bag I went out the next day and bought several more. It is worth the higher price tag.

Basically I loved this bag of buttons and cannot wait to try the rest of the brand!

Go Ahead Chocolate Orange Cookie Bites

I always get really excited when I see a mainstream product which turns out to be accidentally vegan, especially when they are chocolate flavoured! I honestly can't remember who tipped me off to these fabulous little biscuits but whoever it was I am eternally grateful to because they are absolutely delicious!
They come in little individual bags which contain several mini chocolate orange flavoured cookies. They are crunchy and crumbly and more of a biscuit than a cookie in my opinion, I'm not too bothered by semantics in this situation because they still taste great either way. 

The serving size is rather generous, especially for under 100 calories, so I really can't complain about these if I'm honest, just that I am dreading when they go back up to full price!
