As part of an upcoming Top 5 Dairy Free Chocolate Alternatives article I am currently working on, my research led me to British Brand Booja Booja who specialise in Vegan Friendly Chocolate Truffles and Ice Cream.
I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to try their truffles and after hours of pondering on what flavour to go for, I finally settled upon choosing the Hazelnut truffles over the Banoffee ones.
Below are my thoughts on these chocolate alternative delights.
Booja Booja Hazelnut Chocolate Truffles
When the package arrived, the first thing which no doubt grabbed me about these chocolates is the box the truffles came in.
I was sent one of their limited edition boxes which are hand painted by artist’s in Kashmir. The boxes are a true delight to behold and it simply takes your breath away!
Credit must be given to Booja Booja for raising the level when it comes to chocolate presentation.
The next thing to get your attention will be the fact these chocolates are:
- Dairy Free
- Gluten Free
- GMO Free
- Soya Free and totally Vegan.
Bold claims with Bold packaging, surely the taste will be lacking?
Not in the slightest!
The truffles are lightly dusted with raw cocoa powder which adds a melt in the mouth sensation on top of what is already a very pleasant experience.
I must admit I am not the biggest fan of dark chocolate so wasn’t sure how these would fair in my opinion but to call them moreish is a total understatement.
Upon eating three in one sitting I had to refrain myself from going back in the box for more.
They are sweetened with Cane Sugar, a healthier alternative to refined white sugar, also Hazelnut and Vanilla add flavour.
Cocoa solids stand at 55%, whilst your average Cadbury’s / Nestle chocolate bar probably sits somewhere around the 25% mark to add perspective.
Throw a dash of melted healthy Coconut Oil ontop of these truffles like I did and these become a really delicious, healthy alternative to milk chocolate (the taste is mind blowing).
Much to my suprise my other half enjoyed these sweet treats just as much as me. He stays clear of dark chocolate for he finds the taste too bitter but there were no complaints from him this time around, only praise and smiling faces.
It is fair to say after trying these georgous hazelnut truffles I am a Booja Booja convert. As I type this article I am still trying to figure out how something dairy free, gluten and soya free can actually taste this devine!!!
I next want to try their dairy free Pompompous Maple Pecan and Coconut Hullabaloo ice cream flavours as well as their Banoffee chocolate truffles. Being more of a sweet than savoury kinda girl I can honestly see myself working my way through their entire range haha.
As you would have probably guessed from my raving review, Booja Booja Hazelnut Chocolate Truffles has definitely broken into my Top 5 Dairy Free Chocolate Alternatives I have tasted thus far, but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out their exact position (article to be published within the next few weeks).
