 Seed and Bean 

Since I became vegan I hadn't eaten chocolate, not one bite, thinking "well better be safe than sorry because most chocolates contain milk in some way or another". After some research I found that actually some regular brands at supermarkets have some quite decent chocolates without any animal products in their selections. A happy surprise! 

But on to these Seed and Bean's chocolates! They're organic, fairtrade and vegan. And handmade in England. I Had asked these for Christmas but no one was sure where to get them. Made me a tad bit sad but not every Christmas has to be filled with chocolate. I'd seen these at the biggest natural product store in Helsinki, but these two I grabbed along at the supermarket when I went to see the Hobbit again with my brothers. Spent way too much time trying to decide which ones to pick (Chili&Lime and Lemon&Cardamom are haunting me right now, need to try those as well!). Ended up going safe by choosing Espresso and Mint, simple and guaranteed goodness.

My oh my these are nice, especially the coffee one (I don't like coffee but I like things that taste like coffee...) and the mint one is truly minty and yummy. I've always fancied dark chocolate so giving up the ones which contain milk isn't giving me any grief I don't see it necessary in chocolate at all. These only contain cocoa paste, cane sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla essence and ground coffee/mint oil. 

Nothing more, nothing less just delicious
