Sweet Freedom Choc Pot Chocolate Spread
I've always got my eye out for healthier versions of snacks, and one that caught my attention recently was this new Sweet Freedom Choc Pot Spread. I've been waiting for something healthier in the spreads department, considering how unhealthy our beloved spreads like Nutella can be (and don't get me wrong, I do love Nutella!)
Where this spread differs is its lower calorie and fat content, whilst being vegan, gluten free and dairy free, and containing only natural fruit sugars. It's also GMO, palm oil and preservative free.
I found a pot for £3 in the Free From section of Asda, and have to say I love the cute bunny face on the label! Let's be honest though, who doesn't love a cute bunny face?!
The spread looked nice and gloopy when I opened the lid. So much so I ended up getting it all over THE Hand. But I won't be showing you that...
It was very runny indeed, perhaps moreso than Nutella. It was almost like caramel sauce in consistency. The taste is interesting. It's chocolatey and almost "earthy" in some way, perhaps due to the fruit sugar. It feels very natural and "clean" which is the only way I can really describe it. I enjoyed it a lot and it went perfectly smothered over a rice cake:
Overall this is a very nice spread for something that's healthier, lower calorie and dairy free. I would buy it again and I can imagine it would go nicely used as a filling in cakes and suchlike. As far as healthier chocolate spreads go, I reckon this is the best there is right now!
