Moo Free Chocolate is well known in the UK for their whimsical, allergy-friendly chocolate, but many of their products are also available in the U.S. They include milky Mini Moos chocolate bars, “grown up” Luxury chocolate bars, and seasonal chocolate eggs in a variety of flavors.
Tasting Notes for Moo Free Chocolate
I did pick up a Mini Moo bar or two when we were in the UK, but had a more formal tasting with their chocolate Easter eggs. Each year, their selection seems to grow. Last Easter they had five Easter Egg flavors! We’ve tried the two mentioned below.
Scrummy Organic Dairy-Free Chocolate Easter Egg
This sweet treat is hollow, but jumbo in size, measuring a full 5 inches in length. Though it was made without nuts, my taste buds detected a definite hazelnut vibe. I thought it was a pleasant, sweeter, and smoother alternative to dark chocolate. But it did have a “nuttier” and slightly less creamy flavor than traditional milk chocolate.
Underneath the smooth “milk” chocolate exterior lurks an infusion of vegan “honeycomb” toffee (it doesn’t contain any honey). Even if you don’t see those sweet, crunchy little bits at first, you will spot them when you crack the egg open and will definitely taste them. Everyone in our house loved the Bunnycomb, especially the resident teenager. The sweet crunch makes this treat absolutely addicting.
What’s Inside Moo Free Chocolate?
Moo Free has dabbled in white and dark chocolates, but most of their varieties (including the Luxury line) use their original “milk” chocolate base. It is 45% cacao and enriched with rice powder for a creamier-than-dark-chocolate finish.

Cute and tasty!
Moo free’s milky formula made my entire household instant fans. It has a smooth, sweet, creamy, and almost “nutty” finish (though it is nut-free) that appeals to both kids and adults. The addition of vegan toffee honeycomb to their chocolate was also a brilliant move.

I’ve also found that a lot of vegan products contain milk protein. I’m to afraid to have him try these.
Rita, no vegan products should ever have milk protein in them. If you have spotted a product labeled specifically as “vegan” that contains milk protein, please let me know what it was and I will contact the company as that would be a serious issue!
I’ve come across your site trying to locate milk free recipes for my grandson. The grocery stores tend to have products that have some milk in them when you read the ingrediants. I would like to know what to use (ingrediants) to make chocolate pudding for him? He is very allergic to milk and any other beef product.
Rita, I outline pudding recipes and how to make instant pudding (several methods) in Go Dairy Free the book – http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0979128625
are you soya free? Regards Mary
I would like to know how to substitute the heavy cream dairy. Free for chocolate truffles.
Ruth, for making truffles, regular, full-fat coconut milk works as a good substitute for dairy cream.
