Hello, all. I debated whether or not to write this little post. I feel like it is what I would call negative journalism. I don’t like saying bad things about companies, but also, I suppose it is important to be completely honest when it comes to products I don’t like.
I have been shopping around for vegan snacks and treats that I can recommend to you all recently. Today, I bought these vegan chocolate raisins and wondered what could go wrong. I almost didn’t buy them because they contain soy and in term of environmental issues, I would consider soy production to be worse than dairy production. Despite this, I abandoned my morality and decided to try them as I had a voucher for Holland&Barrett. (Whoops!)
The packaging was so cute and friendly and punny. I had foolishly high expectations. Alas, this was probably the worst vegan snack that I have ever tried. I can’t even describe the flavour to you. I could taste neither chocolate nor raisin. In addition to that, they had the most synthetic aftertaste you can imagine.
Vegan alternatives to junk food are crazy expensive, so I think we have a responsibility to each other to let one another know when something just isn’t worth the price tag.
I will be making a post soon of my favourite plant-based junk food, so stay tuned for that!
