VEGAN TREATS Easter Basket Review

 

I ordered “The Ultimate Lucky Bunny” basket from http://vegantreats.com/shop/.

*I was not paid or given free product  for my review.

WOW! These were some of the tastiest Easter Chocolates that I have ever encountered… and believe me when I say that I scour the internet and health food stores for delicious Vegan Chocolate.

I received the box only days after ordering, and for the sake of being able to review them before Easter I HAD to dig right in. Not only were these chocolates some of the tastiest that I’ve had, they were also BEAUTIFUL! Each piece looked like a masterpiece filled with deliciousness!

As stated on the Vegan Treats description the basket includes:

  • 1 bunny buddy box containing two betterfinger bars – I never thought I would get to taste these again – they were spot on!
  • VT (2) (Medium)
  • 1 pack of twin caramel cookie bars – these “twix” imitations were delicious, but I would have loved the caramel to be a bit creamer
  • 1 pack of twin peanut butter cookie bars – Yum.
  • VT (3) (Medium)
  • 1 foil-wrapped chocolate egg filled with handmade coconut cream encased in our Swiss dark chocolate – One of my FAVORITES. These were so good, I could have eaten 50 of them!!! Seriously – how do I get more???
  • VT (6) (Medium)
  • 1 foil-wrapped chocolate egg filled with peanut butter cream encased in our Swiss dark chocolate – Yum
  • 1 white chocolate bunny pop – this is the first vegan white chocolate that was really tasty – most of the “white chocolate” I’ve tried previously have had more of a waxy feel. These were amazing and reminded me of the White chocolate I had as a child.
  • VT (10) (Medium)
  • 1 swiss chocolate bunny pop – Yum.
  • 1 carrot bag filled with eight handmade milk chocolate eggs – Yum.
  • 1 pink box containing two chocolate speculoos bunnies – Oh My Gosh – I was not expecting the burst of delicious flavor and addictive taste of these. I’ve never tasted speculoos before – and apparently I’ve been missing out. One of my FAVORITES!
  •   VT (4) (Medium)VT (11) (Medium)
  • 1 bag of five swiss chocolate and five white chocolate bunnies – Yum.
  • VT (9) (Medium)
  • 1 bag of six passion fruit swiss chocolates – These were so beautifully decorated that I was hesitant to eat them. These were very good, even though I’m not really a fan of fruit flavors with chocolate.
  • VT (8) (Medium)
  • 1 bag of four veganbury eggs – One of my FAVORITES… these lived up to all my hopes and dreams of a vegan cream egg. Well done!!! (see comparison below)
  • VT (7) (Medium)

I also had to compare the two different types of vegan cream eggs…

vs. (Medium)

The left one is from Premium Chocolatiers and is good. They use a sweeter chocolate that is more like milk chocolate, but as you can see the cream is my smaller and harder. The Vegan Treats version oozed out and reminded me exactly of the Cadbury version I had as a kid. The chocolate is darker and more of a shell. It. Was. Amazing.!!!!!vs. (2) (Medium)

Now for the cons. The web site does not offer individual items for sale. I would LOVE to pick and choose which chocolates and how many I want. I assure you that I would have doubled (or tripled) up on some of these if given the chance. So PLEASE Vegan Treats… for those of us that don’t live within driving distance… offer more of your goodies online!!!!   I promise you will have a loyal following 😉

Some of the best Easter treats are also Vegan!  For so many years, if you chose to be Vegan it meant “going without” certain things and traditions…. but now… almost everything has a vegan version!!!   (not to be confused with “healthy” but most certainly “yummy”)

 

Some of my favorites:

  1. Premium chocolate:
