As the name suggests, Moo Free is the dairy-free range of chocolate treats for those intolerant to cows milk, or who simply follow a dairy-free lifestyle.
It's often I come across chocolate which is both healthy and fun - many companies push their healthy ethos, and it can ruin the enjoyment behind the eating. At Moo Free, however, they are all about enjoying chocolate, no matter your diet. All of the eggs
Their eggs feature characters such as Mikey Bunny and Clawdia Cat, which I think make great distractions to the healthy element.
All of the Moo Free eggs have won awards, but it's the caramelised hazelnut nibs egg (£4.25), which caught my eye. My nephew claims he is 'too old' for Easter eggs, but my niece is still at that age where she loves receiving gifts - especially chocolate. Thus I bought her a Moo Free hazelnut egg because she is suddenly 'into' nuts, which is great. As an Auntie I know I'm responsible for giving my niece 'healthy' treats, so my sister advised I find a low-sugar Easter egg, if I had to buy her one. The Moo Free hazelnut egg is perfect for kids; it has great animation and paints a fun picture of a dairy-free Easter. I don't think my niece will even notice because she'll be beside herself that I have given her a chocolate egg.
If your little one is allergic to dairy, or perhaps you follow a vegan lifestyle, but still want to enjoy chocolate without compromising your diet, Moo Free id definitely a delicious option.
I bought myself an egg before I bought my nieces gift, just to make sure it was good enough, and I was blown away. The chocolate has a lightness to it (probably because they use rice milk), and is surprisingly creamy. The egg itself is of a typical thickness, and is hollow. The caramelised hazelnut nibs are crushed hazelnuts which have been dipped in caramel, and are 'baked' into the egg shell - it is divine.
The Moo Free range extends to chocolate drops and a few bars, but their expertise lies in the making of chocolate eggs.
