Vego Chocolate Bar (The Vegan Kind)

As I have mentioned before, my mum recently bought me a nice little stash of vegan goodies for me to try, and this is probably the one that I am most looking forward to because I have heard such great things about it!
The bar is pretty massive weighing in at 65g, and it certainly isn't for the faint of heart, but I'm far from this so it was devoured by me happily in one sitting. 

You honestly would never guess that this bar is vegan from the taste or appearance alone because it tastes exactly what Nutella would taste like in the form of a bar. So basically it is the most incredible thing ever to be created. The bar itself is split into sections which you can break off with relative ease but they would probably be a little uneven if your intention was to equally share this with someone (why anyone would want to share such a delicious bar with anyone is beyond me). The chocolate is such a high quality, it's so rich with the hazelnut flavour which works perfectly with the creamy melt of the bar which just makes this feel all the more luxurious. The creamy smooth texture is broken up with whole hazelnuts which add a great crunch to the bar and ensure that every mouthful is a delight.

As you will have worked out by now I rather enjoyed this bar and loved every bite. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys hazelnuts, and I would especially recommend this to any lover of Nutella!

Tesco Free From Chocolate Dessert

Goodness me I have been eating and reviewing a ridiculous amount of yogurts haven't I? I'm trying to space them out a little bit and keep the variety going so tell me if there is anything you would like me to review or would recommend please!

Onto the review, okay, maybe this isn't quite a yogurt, it's more of a yogurt dessert type of thing, but whatever you want to call it, it remains delicious! The chocolate soya pot was fantastically thick which worked perfectly with the silky smooth texture. The richness of the dessert was perfectly balanced with a creamy sweetness from the soya, this ensured that the pot didn't become sickly, instead it remained light and tasty! You really wouldn't believe that they are vegan or under 110 calories! I've had luxury chocolate cream puddings at over 300 calories which haven't been nearly as lovely as these were so overall I am very impressed indeed!

Vegan Quorn Fillets

I would honestly be lost without Quorn products and that was really the only thing that I was eating which wasn't completely vegan, but since Quorn released these new vegan fillets, I am officially an unwavering and dedicated vegan without exception! 

The fillets themselves are bigger than the regular ones and flatter but I prefer them like this because it feels like you are just getting a good serving size and you only need one rather than two. They taste delicious, the texture is a little bit denser than the original ones but I quite liked it and thought it worked rather well, it probably would be better in a sauce and less dry but I'm not really the biggest fan of sauces. 
Overall I prefer the vegan fillets, the flavour is different but in a good way, perfect to have as a meat substitute in something like a roast dinner.

Swedish Glacé Dairy Free Strawberry Ice Cream Sticks

The variety of vegan products out there are the moment is pretty decent at the moment, and finally the ice cream market has followed suit! These little ice cream bars from Swedish Glacé are simply incredible and you really can't tell that they are free from dairy and vegan. 
They are quite small but I think that this size is perfect because they are rather sweet and rich. They are strawberry ice creams coated in a lovely layer of chocolate, the thickness of the chocolate was adequate and was perfectly proportioned with the ice cream. Obviously I followed the unspoken rules and nibbled the chocolate off first and then enjoyed the deliciously creamy and sweet strawberry ice cream that lay underneath. Honestly these were pretty magical and I'm now craving one as a result of writing this so I think that is a testament to how delicious these are!

My mum tried one and agreed that they were incredible and didn't actually realise they were vegan until I told her afterwards! So I really believe that this is a treat for the whole family, especially if you do have a child with an allergy to milk and don't want them to feel left out or different to everyone else!
