plain old dark chocolate.

I mean....

how hard surely could it be to make say.....

whispa's out of dairy free dark chocolate

or curly wurlys (well, I know it is harder as caramel is made from milk too, but still)

or flakes

or minstrals

or revels

I am just feeling very left out by all the 'yaying' about the return of whispas, and the fact that if I feel like some chocolate and go to buy some I have a grand choice of two, yes two different bars, and they are not even different, just different makes.

oh, and one make is nestle, so how bloody mean is that........

you lot all get a choice of 100+ different types of yummy choc, and I get stuck with G&B, which altho lovely, is boring day after day after day.

I want choice goddamnit, and I want a whispa.

<<glares at choc companies>>

Have you tried purchasing chocolate online, perhaps from a vegan source?

And while i'm drooling.........bring back Pyramints!

psychomum5 Thu 25-Sep-08 22:15:35

but they are not milk free....they still contain milk.....

tis not fair I tells you, not fair.

and I just want a whispa really!


falcon Thu 25-Sep-08 22:15:43

I adored Pyramints, and Secret bars.

KatyMac Thu 25-Sep-08 22:15:54

You could buy cinder toffee & dip/drizzel it in melted choc

falcon Thu 25-Sep-08 22:16:40

Or make cinder toffee, it's so easy and delish.

psychomum5 Thu 25-Sep-08 22:16:44

cinder toffee??? what is this that you speak of??hmm

KatyMac Thu 25-Sep-08 22:18:07

The inside bits of a crunchie (fairly sure it's dairy free could be talking nonsense) You buy it in bags in holiday resorts like Blackpool

bran Thu 25-Sep-08 22:18:09

YANBU about lack of choice, but at the same time I can't help feeling that it is unreasonable to be tired of G&B. Can you have all the variations, cherry, almond, Maya Gold (my favourite) etc?

psychomum5 Thu 25-Sep-08 22:21:39

I love maya gold, and the cherry one, but seriously, after a year of just that, it gets boring.

crunchie stuff tho, oooh, that sounds nice.

still not a choc choice tho<<sigh>>

thankyou all for responding and trying tho

EachPeachPearMum Thu 25-Sep-08 22:21:48

ooh- how do you make cinder toffee?
psycho I think its a northern thing... haven't seen ANY since I moved to midlands sad

LouMacca Thu 25-Sep-08 22:22:09

They make Toblerone out of dark chocolate, scrummy!!!!

That is good enough for me smile

falcon Thu 25-Sep-08 22:24:14

Vegan chocs

KatyMac Thu 25-Sep-08 22:24:57

Do they still do 1776? or Anton Berg? that choc was fab

falcon Thu 25-Sep-08 22:25:53

Caster sugar, golden syrup and bicarbonate of soda.


silverfrog Thu 25-Sep-08 22:29:31

montezuma do a couple of different dairy free bars (how dairy free do you need to be? is the ubiquitous "made in a factory which also makes..." warning ok? - dh can cope with this level, so have been looking stuff out for him)

dietary needs direct do a few bits of choc (but I think mostly just plain choc in different shapes...)

goodness direct also have some different things - think i just got dh some bounty substitutes which are dairy free from there.

will have a think and get back to you...

ooh - hotel chocolat do some dairy free stuff, but is quite ££££

psychomum5 Fri 26-Sep-08 00:06:52

silverfrog, hotel chocolate is very yummy (found a shop in southampton), but yes, too pricy for everyday stuff.

but it was a thrill finding 'buttons'wink!!!

oh, and dairy free with 'warnings' is fine
