I’ve tasted Plamil Dairy Free Mint Chocolate… should you put a pack in the trolley or leave it on the shelf?
Plamil Dairy Free Mint Chocolate blurb reads: A delicious blend of cocoa with sugar and soya. Made for chocolate lovers including vegetarians and vegans. No animal, egg or dairy products. Always made at our place where no nuts are ever used.
OK: Chocolate that can be eaten by those with nut allergies. And milk allergies. And egg allergies. And vegetarians. And vegans. Why do I sense carob is about to enter the discussion? This is going to taste disgusting, right?
The tasting note: Well, no. As they rightly say, it’s actually delicious. The mint is not too overpowering and there is no aftertaste from the substitutes. Plamil’s range of allergy-safe chocolates are excellent, catering as they do for a wide variety of allergies and intolerances – many are also aimed at those with coeliac disease. The brief ingredient list shows that their focus is on quality natural ingredients without sacrificing flavour. Impressive. And no carob!
Carob? Is a seed pod from the carob tree which is crushed and used as a substitute for chocolate.
The full ingredient list: Sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, soya flour, emulsifier – sunflower lethicin, flavouring – peppermint oil.
Can you eat it? Contains Soya
Should you put it in the trolley? Delicious quality chocolate suitable for multiple allergies; quality ingredients without sacrificing flavour.
