Schnouggliné Nougatpralinen by Vantastic Foods

Ingredients – Chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, maltodextrin, soya protein, salt, vanillin, soya lecithin), hazelnut (sugar, hazelnut paste, cocoa butter, cocoa powder, de-oiled salt).

I really wanted to like this product. I thought a little tray of vegan chocolates would make a thoughtful gift in all kinds of situations. Sadly, I would be embarrassed to give these as a present to anyone.

The chocolate seems to have a low cocoa percentage. Tellingly, a percentage is not given on the packaging, but it basically tastes like that nasty, cheap chocolate that comes in small shapes for children. It’s candy more than chocolate. Also, the soya protein gives it an unpleasant, savoury aftertaste. Surely, the hazelnut filling will be better? Sadly, no. I expected a nice smooth filling, but the filling was crumbly, dry and grainy. I don’t think there was anything positive about this product.

For vegan hazelnut chocolate done well, then you can’t go wrong with a Vego bar (and I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed those chunky bars of perfection yet!).
