This dairy free Easter egg is one of two eggs exclusively available online, and only from the Thorntons site, the other is a Fair Trade egg – with the same packaging but in gold foil.
The smart but universal presentation of green foil and a ribbon tied bag means this dark chocolate Easter egg is visually suitable for all ages.
This is more than just a Dairy Free dark chocolate Easter egg, “It has been made under strictly controlled conditions to prevent any cross contamination from nuts, dairy, egg and gluten.” quoted from Thorntons website.
I have taken that to mean that it is suitable for vegans and people with some food intolerances and food allergies;
- Vegan, as it is dairy free and egg free.
- Dairy Free, suitable for anyone with lactose intolerance.
- Nut Free, for anyone with nut allergies.
- Egg free, for anyone with egg allergies.
- Gluten Free, suitable for anyone with a wheat allergy or Celiac/Coeliac disease.
However as the egg is not specifically labelled as any of the above, that does mean there is no guarantee. As always, it is always best to check.
Allergy UK have a useful website with information on allergies and food intolerance.
I have to say considering the “strictly controlled conditions” this egg was made in, at only £6.50 it seems rather good value for money, especially when you consider the difference in price of organic and non-organic food.
£6.50, 120g of dark dairy free chocolate.
Labelled: Vegetarian, Dairy Free and Gluten Free.
