Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates Review

I am so overwhelmed by the generosity of all the companies I have been dealing with recently. Sjaak’s sent me a box full of vegan chocolates to review, not just samples, but full-sized products. I am very grateful for the opportunity to taste their chocolate. The fact that it is delicious is great, too!

Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates is a family owned company that produces yummy  organic chocolates. They use fair-trade, sustainable and non-GMO ingredients and  facilitate a positive work environment.

While not all of their products are vegan, they do have a good amount of vegan chocolates and all the products I was sent are vegan. All products are organic, vegan or not.

Now, for the review. I was sent three of their new  Eli’s Earth Bars, The Celebrate Bar, Treasure Bar and Dream Big Bar. The Celebrate Bar (coconut and almonds) was my favorite flavor. It tasted like a milk chocolate, gooey but not as sweet, Almond Joy bar. I loved the fact that the Eli’s Earth Bars are not sickening sweet. It makes them easier to eat. Although, you will probably want to savor each bite. They are that good. 

I was also sent the Almond Butter Bunny and Organic Peanut Butter CrunchEgg.  They were very delectable. I could not tell the difference between these and dairy chocolate. I would love to get an Easter basket full of these for Easter!

I was also lucky enough to be able to review their dark chocolate bars. I didn’t even get to taste the Chocolate with Creamy Caramel bar (my son stole it away from me). He loved it! He wanted another one. The Dark Chocolate Raspberry bar was delicious and the Extra Dark Chocolate 70% was very rich and tasty.

The treasure at the bottom of the box was an assortment of Dark Chocolate Truffles. There is something about chocolate and coconut that I love. Does it surprise you the coconut was my favorite? Funny, I really don’t like coconut unless it’s paired with chocolate. I’m not a huge fan of truffles, but, I did enjoy the coconut flavor. I generally prefer a big, gooey, candy bar!

Take a look at Sjaak’s site and order some yummy goodness, vegan style!

I was provided with products to review in exchange for my posted opinion of the products. Thank you Sjaak’s for the opportunity!


Nicobella Organic Review

I am so lucky to able to share with you, a review of some products made by Nicobella Organics. I was sent the Dark Chocolate Truffle Assortment and the Coco-Nut Munch.

Nicobella products are vegan, organic, fair-trade, cruelty free and dairy free. They use sustainable packaging which is cute yet simple. My truffles were contained in a small box, wrapped in brown paper, sealed with a Nicobella Sticker. The Coco-Nut Munch bag was made of rice paper. There are no artificial colors or flavors and no processed sugars in their products.

The truffle assortment had six different flavors: blueberry-almond, ginger green tea, pumpkin chai, pure cocoa bliss, walnut flax seed  and sunflower banana butter. My favorite flavor was the blueberry almond. The amount of pure blueberry flavor in this one truffle was amazing. It was very decadent and smooth.


The Coco-nut Munch was by far my favorite product. I almost ate the whole bag myself in less than five minutes. It was the perfect combination of chocolate, coconut, and almond in bite-sized chocolaty goodness.
