As a sugar-loving vegan, certain times of the year are tougher than others.
My recent trips to grocery stores and supermarkets have been met by a familiar sight for this time of year. Christmas shopping frenzy means I am confronted by countless varieties of boxed chocolates, truffles and candy. This onslaught of boxed confection also sweeps through my life around Valentine’s Day, mothers day and an increasing number of commercialised celebrations.
As a fat, gay vegan all I wanna do is drop a few of these boxes into my basket as I waddle to the checkout. Until a few days ago, this was but a dream.
Enter Celtic Chocolates.
Celtic Chocolates create a wide range of products out of their headquarters in the small Irish town of Summerhill in County Heath. Not everything they produce is vegan but the lines that are dairy free are amongst some of my favourite sweets available in the UK. Remember when I raved about these delights made by Celtic?
But what have Celtic done to help me through this current season of boxed chocolates? They have gone and produced a delightful box of vegan treats to keep me more than happy.
The Fine Dark Chocolates by Celtic are gluten free and vegan. They would certainly make a fabulous present for that special cruelty-free eater in your life. If you are anything like me, that special person you buy for is more often than not myself!
Flavours in the box include ginger ganache, cherry heart, chocolate espresso, brandy truffle, orange ‘n chocolate and chocolate leaf. Every flavour is delightful and the box houses two of each variety just in case you are sharing with a friend.
Keep your eyes open wide for these treats over the coming weeks… and please remember that while I do not celebrate Christmas, I do accept and eat delicious gifts at any time of the year.
