The Rotterdam bean to bar chocolate makers from Heinde & Verre are certainly quite inventive. While they can actually be called milk chocolate lovers, they have also seized the challenge for a really tasty vegan chocolate with both hands.
We already tasted that in their vegan Noble Bali chocolate made with cocoa from Bali. They now also make a vegan variant in the ‘Dutch Originals’ series – so this bar.
In the Dutch Original series, the makers do not work with one specific cocoa origin, but instead go for making beautiful blends. Cocoa has been used from Indonesia, Dominican Republic and Peru. You can also taste that in the (of course also vegan) pure variant. There is nothing in it except cocoa & sugar, so logically you can taste the cocoa yourself, and how successful the mix of these three cocoa types is, a beautiful harmonious whole is created while it is anything but boring – there is a lot to taste in it .
There is also a milk variant, and luckily for those who want to go through life without milk, this vegan version is also available. Extra special because Heinde & Verre does not just replace the milk with one other ingredient as often happens (soy, for example), but through thinking and testing they have come up with a mix of natural ingredients that should imitate the milk but above all should be very tasty together. of taste and texture. As far as we’re concerned, that worked out very well and we think it’s a very nice chocolate to taste and let taste. Yes, you can taste it’s not milk chocolate, as far as we’re concerned, but we just like it better, at least than many milk chocolates, if not most.
This chocolate is a nice introduction to special chocolate, and to Heinde & Verre. We have many more vegan ‘milk chocolates’ for enthusiasts, but we also recommend – even if you ‘don’t like dark’, to order one or two dark chocolates. Nice to sit down for a while and to taste and discover with attention (and with family, friends, etc.). For example, the pure Dutch Original or one of the other Heinde & Verre chocolates.
