If they don’t draw you in with that adorable name, No Cow No How will attempt to lure with the promise of dairy-free and soy-free “milk” chocolate.
In fact, No Cow No How is made in a Top 8 Allergen-Free facility. Yes indeed, the claim of “No Dairy, Gluten, Soy, Nuts, Tree Nuts, Eggs, Fish, Shellfish – Ever!” is made quite clear on the label (note that this is an old label – they no longer use rice milk powder, but I didn’t have a current label to photograph after the changes).
For those who are tired of being stuck with dark chocolate, No Cow No How offers a dramatic contrast with their very sweet, slightly milky bars and confections. The chocolate itself has a delightfully homemade, rustic, kid-friendly appeal.
They recently reformulated the bars for a creamier texture, and I think there was a definite improvement on the consistency. For me, the finish was still a bit too “powdered sugary” for my regular chocolate fix, but it is a nice sweet treat when a need a sugar hit with a little depth. To note, I tend to like chocolate that is a bit rich in cocoa butter. For kids or as a sweeter, lighter dessert for adults, No Cow No How hits the spot.
But, it is important to note that No Cow No How also produces two flavored chocolate bars: Mint and Orange. Both bars have the same dessert chocolate vibe, but the Mint has bonus specks of refreshment throughout, for a flavor experience that reminded me of Junior Mints. The Orange has a deep orange essence flavor that I adored, which created a more grown-up, dark chocolate taste.
For those who love information, No Cow No How lists their ingredient sources right on their website with links to the ingredient information (so cool!). And, with each season, they offer festive shapes. Keep an eye out for upcoming holiday confections! In the mean time, their 1.86 ounce scored milk chocolate bars and single-serve discs are to be enjoyed year round.
