Thanks Andrea, that's really useful. I have been looking for just this. Tasty vegan easter eggs as a gift. They really are vegan? The usual dairy free stuff all tastes rubbish, according to my son's little friend.

oh I've just looked on the website. It is all made with cacao not cocoa. Brilliant! I can't believe the price for this, it is really cheap. My other half can't eat normal chocolate as it is a migraine trigger. But we've been told that cocao doesn't have the same effect on most migraine sufferers. Don't know how true that is though.

Hi Lynley,

Yes, I should write that bit in the review actually - the cacao bit! The 'Intensity' egg is made from cocoa though - but it is still very delicious (if you like very dark choc and don't have a reaction to it, that is!).

But I have tried vegan choc before and have thought it just tastes really bad. And this is really the nicest choc I've had!


Kendra - Rawr Chocolate

Hi guys, Kendra from Rawr here!

Just wanted to clarify that "cacao" and "cocoa" are usually used interchangeably and mean the same thing. Sometimes, people call the unprocessed bean "cacao" and the powder form "cocoa". All our chocolates (including Intensity) use cacao from Peru - the bean is crushed to produce cacao paste, butter, and powder which are then used in our chocolate.

Hope that helps!

It is anybody's opionion who makes the best chocolate, but many would argue that Europe is the place where it comes from. I think that the best is from Lindt.

  • I'm Andrea, and am obsessed with creating fabulous food. After I managed to ditch dieting, the reason Chocolate and Beyond was born, it seemed natural to evolve my site into a foodie blog. More so since I also ditched animal produce to be vegan. Now, I love showing how inventive cruelty-free cooking can be. And sometimes I like to rant, too. I wouldn't be myself otherwise :) x

    PS. This blog LOVES your comments! Especially about the food!
