Quality ingredients for vegans who still crave chocolate. There are no preservatives and unnatural sugars.
What I love about chocolate is the creamy, melt it in my mouth texture. When I take a bite my pleasure senses are kick started. I don’t think any other candy could compare to the sexyness that chocolate induces. Using your tongue and swirling the rich sweetness and letting it melt in your mouth is orgasmic.
Zimt Orange chocolate bar although very decent in taste and comparable to the real orange chocolate, it lacks the texture. It was crunchy, from the nibs and grainy.
They are a good option for Vegans not yet ready to give up chocolate or people with food allergies. Not yet available everywhere, I saw this at Loving Hut Express down on Pacific a vegan food cart.
All vegan food cart down on Pacific.
On a ‘delightful’ rain storming day I was welcomed into the world of vegan. Some background info, I am a 100% card carrying, riffle wielding (ok jk on the guns) meat lover.I used to scoff at my vegan friends offering them my veal or even worse real chocolate cake. (I am still not convinced there is any comparable vegan substitute for chocolate). Although I tried a pretty close substitute from Zimt, Orange Chocolate Bar. You can check out my review.
Vegan dishes had to be damn phenomenal for me to even consider it passable.
I had Simon and Rachel who persuaded me during our Food Cart Crawl to try the Loving Hut.
See look how loving they are….
The onion burger
was the key to my world of vegan’ess. It was extraordinary. The patty was moist, BBQ
and mayo sauce gave it a nice tangy richness. Finally the onion rings…who doesn’t like onion rings. It added an extra layer of flavor and crispy texture.
The chicken burger
was also very good but, cannot compare to the onion rings burger.
Disclaimer: the onion burger is really messy. The sauce and crumbs were dripping everywhere. It is totally worth the mess
