Conscious Chocolate Dates, Raw Organic, 50g Handmade in Sussex
Organic & Delicious! Mini 50g boxes of chocolate coated diced dates - perfect for stocking fillers or small gift.
Ethically sourced vegan ingredients: no dairy, no soya, no refined sugar & gluten free; plastic free - home compostable inner wrap; UK artisan made.
Conscious Chocolate Dates have not been coated in the traditional shiny *shellac glaze but rather the dark chocolate has been dusted in delicious, vegan raw cacao powder with a hint of cinnamon. (These are part of the same range as our loose Raw Choc Spiced Almonds and Salted Vanoffee Cashews).
The chocolate is made with coconut oil and coconut blossom sugar rather than refined sugar.
* Many chocolate covered fruits, nuts and sweets have a shiny coating called shellac aka 'beetle juice' which is derived from a resin secreted from the Indian female lac beetle (Kerria lacca) in the form of hardened tubes or tunnels on the branches. These resin tubes are scraped off and processed into dried flakes which are then dissolved in ethyl or isopropyl alcohol to make liquid shellac - and used for 'confectioner's glaze' (used to add a shiny coat and lengthen shelf life) alongside many other non-food uses. (Any insects present are removed during processing the shellac). For those of you wishing to avoid confectionary shellac, look out for E904 in the ingredients list although sometimes it is simply referred to as natural or confectioner's glaze.
