Confectionery and Chocolate – Sponsored by Free From Market


Doisy & Dam


Booja-Booja Hazelnut Chocolate Truffles

‘Rich flavour, great size, delicious to eat. A slightly bitter aftertaste with a very ‘adult’ appeal – love that they are dairy and soya free. Quite, quite delicious: delicate crisp outer shell, to-die-for subtle-flavoured filling....'  


Highly commended

Cocoa Libre 3 Mini Slab Bars

'Great flavours – delicious to eat and not too rich but disappointing that they contain soya lecithin. Love the toppings on the chocolate – very pretty – a quality product.'

D&D Chocolates Dairy-Free Chocolate Drops

'Good dark chocolate – pretty design and great that it is dairy, gluten, nut and soya free – multi purpose from children to dinner party. Quite sweet.'

Eskal Gluten Free Wafer Rolls

'Great crunch and flavour – innovative product. Not a great ingredients list, but excellent as a treat. A good, crisp wafer with a nice, if very sweet, chocolate filling. Perfect with ice cream.


Eat Allergy Safe Handcrafted Vegan Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Truffles

'Silky smooth and great 'freefrom-ness' but strong coconut flavour. Lovely and rich.'

Solkiki Balinese Coconut / White Chocolate

'Pretty and fun design, unusual flavour, creamy rather than chocolatey.  Great rich flavour and delicious idea for a white chocolate.'
