I often enjoy strolling aimlessly around London. I pick a general direction and just set off. These random wanderings have helped me unearth some of the most wonderful vegan discoveries, as well as rediscover gems I had completely forgotten about.
It was during one of these unplanned strolls a few weeks ago when I came across the gorgeous and exquisite creations of The Chocolatier. I am fairly certain I had seen them at VegfestUK London last year but didn’t manage to get close to them due to the swarms of people converging on their stand.
This time I was able to find my way to the front of their table at an open air market just a block back from London’s South Bank. While not being a completely vegan company, the majority of their handcrafted delights are vegan and oh so delicious.
You only have to check out the vegan product page over on their website to imagine how wide my eyes were as I stood in front of their stall south of the river. I was drooling. I bought a small tub of their dark salted caramel spread and am quite confident it was one of the nicest things to ever get up close and personal with my tastebuds.
The thing that impressed me the most was something I actually didn’t buy (it cost more than I actually had on me). If only I celebrated Christmas and worked in an office environment, maybe then someone would gift me a jar of the Vegan White by The Chocolatier as part of some secret Santa debacle.
The company website says Vegan White has been created as a powder to be used for quickly caramelising fruits, sprinkling on toast and even melting in its glass jar before spreading on top of freshly baked cupcakes.
I have nothing left to say.
