Saint-Nicolas/Sinterklaas is coming and that means it’s time for chocolate! Specifically chocolates in the shape of the Saint himself. But even a lot of dark chocolate figures aren’t vegan, so what’s a Saint-loving vegan to do?
Wiloco vegan chocolate Saints are made by the Belgian chocolatier, Montserrat. They are made with coconut sugar which means they’re a little less sweet than a chocolate made with beet or cane sugar, or rather… they’re a different kind of sweet. It’s hard to exactly put your finger on how, exactly.
Rather than “dark”, “milk”, and “white” chocolate, the Wiloco variations are named “tropical black”, “tropical brown”, and “tropical white”, but based on the cocoa percentage in each, they can be compared to the traditional categories. I found the “tropical black” a bit grainy (there’s certainly better vegan dark chocolate out there) but the “tropical brown” and “tropical white” are both quite good!
