So what’s the story with the Vegan Hero bar? What about the Vegan Hero with Hazelnut? Is it a true rival to Vego?
Vegan Hero comes in 3 flavours. The 2 original bars are white chocolate with almond and brown chocolate with hazelnut. A coconut crisp variety has recently joined in the fun. Today we turn our attentions to the Hazelnut hero.
The pow design (as if the chocolate was hoping for a role in a superhero movie) is fun. Sadly the packaging is plastic and doesn’t look to be recyclable. So it’ll this one will be taking its place in the eco brick.
At 40g it weighs in at less than a Vego Mini bar but that might be a blessing for your waistline!
The Vegan Hero with hazelnuts looks good. It’s an appetising colour and has a good chunky appearance. It’s divided into 4 nicely sized squares. Of course, it looks even better when you turn it over and can see the hazelnuts!
Of course, the real test is the taste. And the taste is great. It has the same melt in the mouth quality that Vego has (and might even taste better). The hazelnuts work well against the sweetness of the chocolate. The chunkiness is pleasing to sink your teeth into.
Good to know
The Vegan Hero with Hazelnuts is gluten free as is the whole range.
Great texture and flavour. Vego bar fans need to try this!
