Break It!


Vegan Chocolate, Seed and Bean

I’ve been testing out some vegan chocolate in the Seed & Bean brand lately. So, I wanted to post a mini review.
I’ve found 4 flavours at my local Holland & Barrett store and these are:
Ginger
Mandarin and Ginger
Chilli
Lavender

My favourite is the Ginger one. It has tiny ginger nibs with the percentage of chocolate being just right for how I like it. And I love ginger chocolate in general. The Mandarin & Ginger is okay. The Chilli is not for the faint hearted. I ended up cooking it in a brownie mixed with some plain chocolate! Then the Lavender… hmmm! I was all excited about this one when I bought it but it turns out, I didn’t like it at all. Maybe that’s just me but I felt like I was eating a bar of soap.

So, the only one I’d purchase in this brand is the Ginger flavour.

And here’s a funny quote that I quite like:

Strength is the ability to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands – and then eat just one of those pieces.
~ Judith Viorst

Isn’t that just true?

    I never saw that brand before. Even though I haven't tasted these, the only one I would have bought would ahve been the ginger one, too.

    Mihl, it's a local (Irish) brand. I don't know if they export it. It's good that they've started doing some local vegan chocolate here; makes it cheaper. 🙂 But then it means I'm eating more of them; not good! lol

    Wow that choclate looks mighty dangerous in my hands…so glad they ae far away from me because my crazy love for chocolate can really come out and completely eat them all…LOL.

    Oooh, I&#39;m always excited to find new chocolate – I agree with you about the lavender, btw – I&#39;ve found that if it&#39;s used too heavy-handedly that delicate fragrance can just <i>COMPLETELY</i> ovepower the finished product.
