The Allergy Brothers is on hiatus.

I don’t have the brain space for a blog and real life at the moment so I will be taking a break from The Allergy Brothers blog.  I hope to return to it some day…

Doisy & Dam Goji & Orange Chocolate


Cocoa mass, Sugar, Cocoa butter, Goji berries, Orange essence, Vanilla powder.

May contain traces of nuts.

20160608_205816Allergy Little is very competent at taking things apart, but he still needs help putting them back together.  This afternoon, Allergy Little has taken this robot apart  four times, which means I have put it together three times.  Then I needed a snack break.  This organic dark chocolate was good quality and packed a punch.  Although, I didn’t think the orange flavour was very strong.  The goji berries seemed to add texture rather than flavour.  I loved the packaging and thought these bars were just the right size.  And I did put the robot back together a final, fourth time!

20160608_195833Can you see the toys strewn around in the background of the photo?  Quite often whole rooms looks like this at Allergy Towers.  These are the days when the only solution is baked goods.  Today, I thought I would try these lemon burst mini cookies.  The front of the packet showed a slice of lemon with the words “pucker up!” so I was expecting a big hit of lemon flavour.  It was more of a waft of lemon and that was a bit disappointing.  On the positive side, these had a good texture for a gluten free biscuit and were nicely sweet.  Of course, the biggest positive about this brand is their commitment to producing allergen free food.  It almost seems churlish to complain about the flavour not being strong enough when this product is potentially such a boon to some people with very sensitive allergies.
