Everyone loves chocolate right? But if you’re vegan- you need to look a little harder to find dairy free varieties to satisfy your sweet tooth. Well, we’ve done the hard work for you- here’s a list of chocolaty lovelies to keep your treat cupboard well stocked.
Pierre Marcolini has created high quality, luxury products that are vegan friendly!
Grand Crus Noir Tablets, price £7.00, weight, 80g
All the pleasure of luxury chocolate without any dairy! Also, with less guilt thanks to the sugar substitute maltitol, a compound made from cereals that has an almost identical flavour profile to sugar. Its principal advantage is that it does not make people's blood-sugar levels rise, allowing you to get full enjoyment every time you tuck into a square of chocolate.
Savers Du Monde, price £25.00, weight 100g
The "Saveurs du Monde" collection is sure to be every vegan’s dream! A 25-piece box that offers a rich flavour journey with no dairy along the way. This luxury box takes you on a journey to the source: Peru, Brazil, Cuba and Ecuador. Each little square of dark chocolate has its own unique, distinct flavour profile that is closely linked to the way the bean is prepared.
The ideal gift inspiration for vegan friends and family out there for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or the perfect gift to bring to any occasion.
Enjoy a little taste of luxury with Lindt Excellence’s range of luxurious dark chocolate bars in a variety of flavours. Swap your sweet treat for something a little darker and indulge your senses while remaining on track.
Lindt Excellence is available in a wide selection of flavours including 70%, 85%, 90%, Orange Intense, Salted Caramel and Mint. (RRP; £1.99), available from all major supermarkets.
Lindt Excellence has partnered with Psychologist expert, Emma Kenny, to provide tips on how best to stick to your New Year’s Resolutions and give yourself the best start to 2018.
‘New Year’s resolutions shouldn't feel like a sacrifice, because they should concentrate on areas that make your life better. Don’t overwhelm yourself with big changes, instead pick a few priorities and focus on taking steps to improve.
‘On average, 21% of Brits make New Year’s resolutions and of these 48% state that losing weight is a priority, with 31% feeling that adopting a healthy lifestyle is a key goal. Unfortunately, these aims often fail to be carried out because we are too strict and deprive ourselves rather than make sensible choices. Looking after yourself is key to positive self-esteem, which is why I am a huge advocate for allowing myself a little taste of luxury in the evening with a square of high quality Lindt Excellence dark chocolate to satisfy cravings and reward myself.’**
