Heading into the mainstream, sold via both natural and conventional grocers, the line-up of Chocolate Dream Chocolate Bars was certainly crafted to please the dairy-free masses.
It’s been quite a while since I tasted the Dark varieties of Chocolate Dream Chocolate Bars, so I’ll let you weigh in on those in the comments, and I’ll update when I’ve sampled them again. But I recently picked up the Creamy Sweet bar, and quite frankly, couldn’t put it back down.
The Creamy Sweet Chocolate Dream bar is positively scrumptious, and perhaps the creamiest dairy-free milk chocolate I’ve tasted to date. Also, it’s sweet, but not in a cloying way, like many milk chocolates. In fact, I would call the flavor a milky semi-sweet hybrid. Overall, I think it’s a darn good dairy-free “milk” chocolate that’s rich enough for adults, yet still quite kid-friendly.
The drawback for some, would be in the ingredients, which do contain a small amount of corn and soy (non-GMO, according to the company):
Ingredients: Evaporated Cane Juice, Cocoa butter, Unsweetened Chocolate, Maltodextrin (from corn), Roasted Soy Flour, Soy Lecithin (to emulsify), Pure Vanilla Extract.
That said, all of the Chocolate Dream Chocolate Bars are made in “one of the few facilities worldwide that can guarantee you a chocolate treat free of dairy and gluten”. Beyond the Creamy Sweet selection, there are four Dark Chocolate Bars to choose from (all of which have similar ingredients to those listed above): Pure Dark, Dark Rice Crunch, Dark Raspberry, and Dark Almond.
Certifications: Chocolate Dream Chocolate Bars are Certified Kosher Parve. They are also labeled as vegan and gluten-free and the product description says “no GMO’s”, but I did not note certifications for these.
Dietary Notes: By ingredients, Chocolate Dream Chocolate Bars are dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, vegan / plant-based, and vegetarian. Select varieties are made without nuts. Nonetheless, check with the company on their manufacturing processes for all varieties if potential allergen cross-contamination is an issue for you. Processes and labeling are subject to change at any time for any company / product.
