Just Truffles - Handmade Dairy Free & Vegan Truffles

Just Truffles - Handmade Dairy Free & Vegan Truffles
You have probably heard me moan that good dairy free chocolate is becoming impossible to find. Supermarket own brand dairy free chocolate tastes cheap and is over priced. I have been browsing online but it’s not an ideal solution hardly a great way to solve a sudden onset of chocolate cravings. In theory dark chocolate is dairy free but this is not always the case. Let me also tell you I have an incredible sweet tooth and cannot tolerate chocolate with more than 60% cocoa. This is why I loved Sweet Williams/Humdinger dairy free white buttons.  I say "loved" because the supermarkets stopped stocking them.

In the past I have been gifted Booja Booja champagne truffles which are lovely but an expensive indulgence.  So I’ve been browsing the internet and I came across Just Truffles Hand Made Dairy Free & Vegan Truffles.  They also offer regular dairy (milk) chocolates and sugar free chocolates.

The dairy free menu is varied with 15 different truffles available. I decided to buy a box of 6 truffles (£4.60 plus postage).  I went for the mainly nuts box which contains 1 of each - brazil nut, marzipan, almond, hazelnut and 2 dark chocolate.

Overall the truffles score highly in terms of presentation and quality but a couple let me down on flavour.  I enjoyed the almond and hazelnut but the others tasted like alcohol. To be honest I am still a little confused. There are alcoholic flavours on the menu but it doesn't state that the flavours in my box contained alcohol.  

Everyone’s taste buds are different so I don’t want to discourage you from trying. If you have multiple allergies then I would be cautious about ordering and check with the Company regarding cross contamination. I have no information regarding their dedication to Free From manufacturing processes.

  1. I am loving this research. May have to order some to see what I think. You know to help you with your research. ;)The only thing is I am not a huge fan of chocolate with alcohol in them. x

    1. No I hate alcoholic chocolate as well, I haven't had a chance to ask the Company why that happened because unless I have been really daft I didn't expect to get them. I think it should be clear on the website.

  2. Oh no! It's good you're finding new alternatives, can't say I'm a big fan of alcohol in truffles though either. Your comment about being breathalysed after eating them made me kinda chuckle :) xox

    1. finding alternatives is a tough job but I am happy to sacrifice myself for the sake of the blog & other allergic people, seriously thought I was going to get up & fall over drunk lol I will confess I don't drink much alcohol these days so it was a shock to the system

  3. Lovely review, I'm not a fan of alcohol in chocolates, which is odd considering how much I like alcohol & chocolate lol!
    I tried the Conscious Chocolates, but they had a weird texture & I didn't like how they had to be chilled, I like my chocolate at room temperature. Luckily for me though I adore dark chocolate so I can stick to that as long as its milk free :)

    1. I am the same separately not a problem but together alcohol and chocolate are not a winner for me. Not sure I want to give Conscious chocolate a try now.
