Having seen an advert on TV recently for Morrisons’ free from Christmas range, I decided to pop along to see what was available. I have to say, I was expecting a bigger range, but I am pretty lucky that my local Morrisons has the biggest free from range of all the supermarkets in the area already, so there were a few new additions to try out.
Purchased from: Morrisons
Dairy/lactose free: Dairy free
Description of product: Strawberry flavoured dairy alternative white chocolate truffles
As you may recall, I recently posted a blog about a delicious white chocolate alternative I had found in a health food shop. I was really pleased to see something different in Morrisons, as I would say that flavoured white chocolates are even more rare in the dairy free world than a bar of white chocolate.
I was not disappointed. I was a little surprised on biting into the chocolate, as I expected some kind of gooey strawberry filling. Instead, there was a soft, white filling, with a strawberry flavour. I found that the filling melted in your mouth and tasted really good. Although it was not what I was expecting, I was really impressed with the texture and taste.
The white chocolate itself has a good flavour. It is quite similar to the one I reviewed recently, and again, quite sweet. However, I found that it was quite close to a white chocolate flavour.
I thought the two flavours went really well together and complemented each other. I loved the blend of textures, with a harder outer shell and a soft fondant middle. Missing out on having a decent box of chocolates with a variety of flavours and textures is one of the most disappointing things about being dairy free, so it is wonderful to start seeing alternatives like this on the market.
Looking at the packaging, I would suspect that they will only be in store for the Christmas season, which is a little sad, but they have a ‘best before’ of July next year, so probably worth stocking up on!
I think lactose free lovelies everywhere would be happy to get these in their stocking this year!
