When I became vegan my biggest concern was not being able to eat chocolate anymore. Cheese platters at Christmas and fondue in the alps I could forgo, but chocolate – no way. For the last 4 months I’ve been on the hunt for a more affordable option to Green and Blacks dark chocolate and in Aldi I found the answer to by prayers. Can you believe it – Aldi?
About Moser Roth
Moser Roth is a German company and Aldi’s exclusive brand of luxury continental chocolates. The company goes back as far as 1902, so they’ve had plenty of time to perfect their craft and believe me they have. They don’t just make dark chocolate, but milk and white too, however their range of dark chocolate is vast giving your plenty of choice.
What products do Moser Roth have?
Whether you like dark chocolate alone, with sea salt, chilli, mint or almonds, you can find it at Aldi. I had 4 bars find their way into my basket. Dark chocolate with,
- Sea Salt
- Orange and Almond
- Almond alone
The chilli, sea salt and orange and almond bars are made up of five individually wrapped bars. Perfect for an afternoon treat to keep you going even if not the healthiest option. The packaging is also really smart and feels high end for Aldi. These pictures don’t do it justice.
I also bought Moser Roth’s Dark Almond Chocolat Compose, which I am ashamed to say did not last past a day. That is one of the problems when you buy larger bars of chocolate. There’s nothing to stop you form mindlessly devouring one piece after another!
Why I like Moser Roth Chocolate Bars
I find their dark chocolate smooth and sweet. I am not a fan of bitter chocolate and these bars sit at the opposite end of the spectrum. I also like the variety of flavours available. My favourite is the Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt as I used to have the Lindt version before I became vegan, but unfortunately it has milk in it, so this is a great alternative.
How much do Moser Roth chocolate bars cost?
The Chilli, Sea Salt and Orange and Almond bars cost £1.29 each and the Dark Almond Chocolat Compose £1.39. Compared to Green and Black bars which are around the £2 mark I find these bars reasonably priced. I just need to make sure that I restrict myself the next time I go to Aldi. It’s taking all my will power not to dig one of the sea salt bars out of my cupboard right now. Oh one won’t hurt will it?
