My eldest daughter is a vegan. At Christmas with a houseful of festive dairy-based confectionery around her, I'd hate for Megan to feel like she couldn't indulge in something delicious. Thank goodness for Booja-Booja!
Booja-Booja are a range of artisan truffles, handmade in Norfolk using carefully-sourced ingredients and the finest organic chocolate, single-sourced from the Dominican Republic. They are organic, dairy free, gluten free and soya free and have no added preservatives - but best of all, they are mouthwateringly delicious!
Booja-Booja kindly sent us a box of their Special Edition Gift Collection Hazlenut Truffles to try. Sweet roasted Italian Hazlenuts and fine organic chocolate are combined to create an amazing chocolate truffle. They are beautifully presented in an orange hinged gift box with elegant gold writing. The attention to detail in the packaging exceeds the ordinary, with each box containing a Boojagram featuring an inspiring quote. The black and gold interior is luxurious and each truffle comes individually presented in its own paper case. They are then sealed into threes with gold wrap to retain their freshness.
One taste of the cocoa-coated, cubes of deliciousness and you will understand why they have won 60 awards, including 20 prestigious “Great Taste” awards. They melt in your mouth and are rich with an intense flavour. Once you start to eat one you don't want the sensation to end. The Hazlenut Truffles have small pieces of nut within the truffle giving a delicious flavour and texture. They are the sort of chocolate that you nibble and savour...not something to mindlessly scoff. A true confectionery experience!
There are four boxes available in the Special Edition Gift Collection at an RRP of £12.95 per box, with 12 truffles in each box. Hazelnut, Fine de Champagne and two assorted truffle selections are available. Find them in Selfridges, Planet Organic, Wholefoods and in all good independent health food stores, farms shops and delicatessens.
Other gifting truffles in the Booja-Booja range include The Gourmet Selection 237g (RRP £16.99) and The Artist Collection 185g (RRP £19.99).
Booja-Booja Chocolate Truffles are perfect for vegans or people with allergies, but they are also ideal to give to foodie friends, chocolate connoisseurs and fans of fine food. They are luscious!
