Tesco Free From Rich and Decadent Chocolate Pots – Dairy Free Reviews

Today I am reviewing:

image

Tesco Free From Rich and Decadent Chocolate Pot.
I love chocolate; rich, creamy, dreamy, scrummy chocolate. It makes me happy. I do not like the damage dairy does to my body. After a hard week of pudding tasting and our daughter having a fever (thankfully getting better now) my husband and I needed a choccy-pick-me-up. Did these chocolate pots make us happy without the nasty dairy effect. No Moo, No Sick, you know the drill.

What is it?
Two plastic pots of chilled dark chocolate dessert.

Ingredients:

Free From:
Dairy
Wheat
Gluten
Meat
Honey
Coconut

Thus Suitable For:
Vegetarians
Coeliacs
Allergy / intolerance sufferers
Chocoholics

image

Looks like:
Chocolate is dark but not completely black
I think the two little tubs are rather cute

Smells like:
Chocolate!

Tastes like:
Rich, dark chocolate.
Smooth and stretchy, gloopy textured.
It’s delicious.

Price:
£2.50 for two tubs.

image

Conclusion:
We loved these.
It occurred to us we as we were tub scraping that we were probably supposed to dip delicate strawberries into the delicious chocolate rather than attack it with a spoon and a chocolate-lust. I’m sure the choccy fondue method is lovely, but, we have no regrets.

4.5/5 – Delicious, just a little too pricey for regular indulgence.

Asda Christmas Tiffin

Looks like:

Pretty sprinkling of red cranberry sugar over top

Smells like:
Chocolate & orange
Christmas (waves arms and makes an excited “squeeeee” sound)

The cranberry sugar hits straight away giving a sharp yet pleasing TING to your taste buds.
This mellows to a sweeter candified twang as the surprisingly rich chocolate reaches you.
The biscuit is crunchy and tasty
The fruit is plump, juicy and in plentiful supply without overpowering the chocolate.
Delicious.

£2

Conclusion:
Asda has excelled here.
I absolutely loved this tiffin.
By far one of the best seasonal products I have tasted.

5/5 – Tiffin’ lovely.

Vegetarian Free From at McDonalds UK

So…your friends / children / relatives / dogsitter wants to meet at Mcdonalds; “Great” you say…then as you put your phone down you’re met with that thought common to all following special diets – “ahhhhh what can I eat???”

As you may suspect; sadly the UK Mcdonald’s-braving-vegetarian of 2015 hasn’t the widest choice beneath the golden arches. McDonald’s site informs readers that although their fries are perfectly free from gluten, dairy and animal products, their bread rolls all have milk and gluten in them. McDonald’s wraps are dairy free but not gluten free.

Burger wise you have two variations on the one ‘burger’ patty and that’s what we will be focusing on…

The Spicy Veggie Patty.
