REVIEW: ICHOC Rice Chocolate Range

These chocolate bars are to DIE for (whilst ensuring animals don't have to). I plan on writing a separate blog post reviewing these because they deserve a special mention and shout out from the rooftop. They're made out of rice milk instead of cow's milk and they are seriously the tastiest and best-textured bars going. My uncle bought me six of these for my birthday and they've blown everything else out of the water! They have fabulous ingredients too that seem to work far better than fellow brands. GENIUS is an understatement for these bars. 

Oh my goodness. Just, wowzies. This is the most amazing vegan white chocolate I have ever tasted. It tastes exactly the same as milky bar with no weird soya aftertaste. The texture is creamy with no claggy powder effect and it is just a beautiful chocolate bar. It's £1.73 a bar but I'd actually willingly pay a lot more than that if I had to. I would avoid smelling this product, though - it smells slightly like a dog treat if I am honest. However, ignoring that, it is amazing! Absolutely a-mazing. The Normal' chocolate equivalent: Milky bar or Cadbury's dream

Ingredients: raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, rice milk powder, 18% tiger nut semolina, ground bourbon vanilla pods. 

This has a strange colour but I guess that doesn't matter when it tastes as delicious as it does. My goodness, these bars really are revolutionary to vegan chocolate. It's got the texture, taste, and smell to boot. I can't stop praising these chocolate bars. Again, I'd pay more than £1.75 (although I am glad it's this price obviously). The 'Normal' chocolate equivalent: Caramac and GOLD bars.

Ingredients: raw cane sugar, hazelnut paste 23%, cocoa butter, rice milk powder 11.5%, hazelnut brittle 8% (raw cane sugar, hazelnuts, corn-glucose syrup, caramel syrup, bourbon vanilla extract. 

This chocolate is very good. It's got orange pieces in it and the crunch of the almonds and chewiness of the orange work very well together. It's affordable, interesting, delicious, and cruelty-free. What more could a girl ask for? I can tell some people may not like the orange as it does get stuck to your teeth but, for the flavours involved, I thought that was very much worth it. The 'Normal' chocolate equivalent: Orange Crunch sweet in Quality street at first bite, but the fresh orange inside makes it a bit more like LIDL's own dark chocolate bar.

Ingredients: raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa paste, rice milk powder 14%, chopped almonds*4%, orange granules 3%, hazelnut paste, orange oil, bourbon vanilla extract. cocoa: at least 40% chocolate content 

This is so creamy and luxurious. Definitely the best plain vegan milk chocolate alternative I have tried. I don't think a non-vegan would even notice this didn't have milk in to be honest. The 'Normal' chocolate equivalent: Galaxy.

Ingredients: raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, rice drink powder 14 %, cocoa mass, tiger nuts*(ground), hazelnut paste, bourbon vanilla extract, sea salt. Cocoa solids: 37 % minimum.

I won't buy this bar again. I didn't find it to be as flavoursome as the others. It reminded me of a NESTLE nut chocolate bar I used to get when I was younger when my father lived in Spain. The 'Normal' chocolate equivalent: NESTLE nutty bar or Cadbury's fruit & nut.

Ingredients: raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, hazelnuts 20%, rice drink powder 11 %, cocoa mass, tiger nuts (ground), hazelnut paste, bourbon vanilla extract, sea salt. Cocoa solids: 37 % minimum.

Okay so, when I was a cow pus guzzling human being, I used to LOVE galaxy cookie crumble and now here it is in vegan form but better, may I add. It has large chunks of cookie, which have a similar taste and texture to Oreos. This chocolate tastes creamy and luxurious - this is my favourite alternative to milk chocolate bar so far. The 'Normal' chocolate equivalent: Galaxy cookie crunch.

Ingredients: raw cane sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa paste, rice milk powder 13%, cocoa biscuits 12% (wheat flour, cocoa powder, raw cane sugar, sunflower oil, sugar beet syrup, sea salt), hazelnut paste, bourbon vanilla extract. cocoa: at least 40% chocolate content

I am so impressed with this chocolate range. It seems rice milk is the perfect replacement in order to make luxurious vegan chocolate with a creamy consistency. They're affordable and there are six interesting, delicious and innovative flavours with all different textures to choose from. I am in love with these chocolate bars!
