    Chocolate Chips (UK)

    Primal Fuel
    Hello,

    I"m putting together a trail mix and would love to include real chocolate. (I'm getting inspiration from graze.com which are now way overpriced)

    The most 'real' and dairy free chocolate chips are fond in the links below

    Tropical Source Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips dairy free, gluten free, Vegan 283g Real Foods Bulk Wholesale Online Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

    Bloc Dark Chocolate Chips For Cooking 150g Real Foods Bulk Wholesale Online Edinburgh, Scotland, UK



    Although not ideal, are there "ok" enough? Does anybody in the UK have better alternatives for a low price point? I realise I could just break up some Lindt but I really want chips!

    Thank you

    The first one has sugar as the first ingredient and contains roasted soy flour. It also doesn't say what percentage cacao it is. I would avoid it all together.

    The second one looks nice although 60% isn't that high in cacao (i.e. still relatively high in sugar), so depends what flavour you like.

    I ordered the BLOC brand from amazon which is a lot cheaper. It's very tasty but it's 60%.

    I did some more searching and there is one even cheaper with 80% Cacoa content

    Sainsbury's have recently stopped selling the Bloc ones and replaced them with an own brand Taste the Difference range. The dark choc is 70%+ and pretty nice. Can't remember ingredients.

    You live in Europe. You should have access to European chocolate (some of the best in the world). Buy your favorite dark bar and go to town!
