This could possibly be my favourite day of the year. International Chocolate Day. Yippee. I did take advantage of this wonderful event and consumed a few chocolate temptations. Well I couldn't let it go by without syning a little (Slimming World syning). That would be like going without presents on Christmas Day.
On a gluten free diet it is pretty easy to eat chocolate on it's own, it just becomes more tricky when the chocolate is covering something like a cake or a hob nob. I always go on about the hob nobs don't I? It's just that I was so glad to see them on the supermarket shelves. It's like that scene in The Lion King when Rafiki holds Simba up in the air, I feel like doing that when I find a new gluten free product I like or I've been waiting for. Next time I'm in Tesco I may just hold the chocolate hob nobs up to a rendition of 'The Circle of Life', you want to shop with me now don't you?
There are many dairy free chocolate bars available now in the supermarkets, a lot more than there used to be. I thought it was difficult to follow a gluten free diet but a dairy free diet must also be hard to follow as a lot of products do contain milk. My dad will eat the plain chocolate so high in cocoa that it is too bitter for me. I have never had to remove chocolate from my mouth before, never happened! But in this case I had to, it was just not tasty enough for me. I think he just eats it so that he now knows it safe from any 'sue from the brew invasion'.
I'm loving one brand of chocolate especially because I just love the name and that is Moo Free Chocolates. They have it all, their chocolate products are dairy free, gluten free, wheat free, lactose free, casein free, suitable for vegetarians and registered vegan. Moo Free are also very environmentally friendly with their packaging, also using organic and ethically sourced ingredients. You can grab more information at:
www.moofreechocolates.com where you can find your local stockist which include Sainsbury's, Morrisons and Holland & Barrett just to name a few.
