Seed and Bean – an organic kaleidoscope of pleasure

seed-and-bean-02

There is a new chocolate range in town! It’s Seed and Bean.

I tried my pick on the Mandarin and Ginger. This is one of the many vegan chocolates in the range. The mandarin and Ginger has 72% cocoa. The thing I liked most about it is that whilst there is a subtly taste of the Italian mandarin and a hint of the Sri Lankan ginger, they do not overpower the taste of the cocoa. But that’s not all I have to say about this chocolate. It’s organic and carries the seal of approval by the Organic Soil Association. It’s also fair trade and it’s dairy free. Oh and it’s made in England.

When getting the chocolate bar, I took with me an information leaflet. So right now, whilst I am indulging myself in this vegan, organic, mandarin flavoured piece of chocolate, I am trying to read what’s written here, rather than have my mind drift away. I actually drifted away, after all why resist good chocolate?

Seed and Bean state that they produce their chocolates in small batches, versus the large volume production associated with many high street chocolate brands. I like the part that states that their “foil” wrappers are made from natureflex, fully home compostable and made from trees! So you don’t need to throw anything away.

Having a look at the Seed and Bean range one can find an extensive range of vegan lactose free chocolates (15 flavours) and some vegetarian chocolates (7 flavours).  The range spreads from 30% cocoa to the black labelled 100% cocoa (that must be the next to try).

How much do Seed and Bean chocolates cost?

All the Seed and Bean chocolate range costs €3.36. You can find them at Sattva (San Gwann), Greens (Swieqi), Provita (Naxxar), Vortex (M’Skala), Vincent’s Eco Farm (Mgarr), Lotus Crown (Gzira), Healthy Pantry (Zurrieq) Gala Supermarket (Gzira), Park Towers (B’Kara) and very soon at Park Towers (Spinola), Pama (Mosta) and Pavi (Qormi).

Seed and Bean is imported locally by Sattva.

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.

    Regards
