Gratitude Gourmet sent me their new Vegan Chocolate Sampler to test out. How could I refuse? The chocolate is fair trade and made in California. Inside is a nice variety of chocolates, jellies, pretzels and even coffee beans. So let's open it up and take a look!
My favorite of the five selections was the Orange Batons. I've never had anything quite like it before. It's a long orange jelly dipped in chocolate. The citrus flavor mixed with the chocolate is heavenly. I wouldn't mind a whole box of these!
Chocolate Coated Pretzels. I found these to be just ok, your average pretzel with chocolate. Not bad mind you, just saying.
Fruit Pate de Fruit. These were a nice break from all the chocolates. Similar to the orange jelly, it's a raspberry jelly square. I'd love to try a box with different fruit flavors.
Vegan Hazelnut-Berry. A nice mix of chocolate and berry jelly. There was a hint of hazelnut but a little bit more would have been better. Overall, though, I liked it.
Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans. I'm not a fan of coffee AT ALL but I decided to try a couple. While I would never eat a ton of these, they did have an interesting flavor. I didn't even know you could eat coffee beans much less dip them in chocolate.
So if you are looking for a nice Vegan chocolate sampler for Valentines Day's, Gratitude Gourmet would make a great choice!
