Review of Cocoalibre Rice Milk Chocolate Penguin Lolly

This year I decided that I should make it my mission to start my Christmas reviews early. So when I discovered that Holland & Barrett had launched their Christmas free from range I had to pop in store and find out more. Sadly, a lot of the section was already out of stock. However, there was chocolate and I love chocolate so I decided to grab some to try. The first festive chocolate I decided to treat myself to was Cocoalibre free from rice milk Christmas chocolate penguin lollies.
Review of Cocoalibre Chocolate Penguin
I personally liked the packaging, simple clear cellophane which means you can tell exactly what you are going to eat. To the back is a white label with the ingredients list. It is clearly labelled as being suitable for a vegan diet and dairy free, gluten free, nut free, peanut free and wheat free. Onto the ingredients list with regards to allergens soya lecithin is highlighted. There is no may contain warning.

On opening the packaging I was immediately greeted by a subtle aroma of sweetness that I associate with free from the chocolate. I was looking forward to trying this Christmas penguin. The actual chocolate is made up of one piece which I found difficult to break into pieces. On biting into the chocolate my taste buds were hit by the subtle combination sweetness and cocoa flavouring from the chocolate. Onto the chocolates texture. The chocolate was slightly hard to initially bite into. This soon became smooth in texture and melted slightly in the mouth. I ate this chocolate in one sitting and confess to licking the stick it was on to make sure that nothing was left behind.

So would I recommend this chocolate penguin? Yes I would It is a great value festive chocolate with the right balance of flavour and texture. So if you like chocolate and follow a dairy free, gluten free, nut free, peanut free and or vegan diet why not give this festive treat try. So thank you Cocolibre for producing festive chocolate that I can enjoy.

    I’m not seeing non-dairy chocolate like this in the U.S. Good to know it will probably be coming our way eventually. For now, I just buy the ultra dark, which has become my favorite. Blessings on your weekend.
