Please note: I received free products from LoveRaw for the purpose of this post, but this in no way impacted my opinion. I was under no obligation to write a positive review, and the brand did not see this review before it was published.

Our six-year-old has a bit of a sweet tooth. Actually, “a bit” is a massive understatement. The boy loves all things chocolate. I was keen to see what he’d think of vegan alternatives to some of his favourites.

Husband and wife team Manav and Rimi Thapar launched LoveRaw in 2013. With their initial investment of £600, they were on a mission. That mission: to use sustainable and ethical ingredients to create plant-based chocolate that tastes even better than regular chocolate.

LoveRaw has B Corp certification. They use no artificial ingredients or palm oil in their products. They source their cocoa ethically. They commit to using superior ingredients. They’ve been such a success story that you’ll find LoveRaw products in all sorts of major retailers, including Tesco, Boots, Asda, Waitrose, WHSmith and Co-Op.

But could they convince the six-year-old foodie in the making? LoveRaw kindly sent us a selection of their products to try out (and there’s a giveaway prize on offer at the end of this review, too!)

 

LoveRaw Product Range

 

I started him off with the Peanut Caramel Bar: a caramel and peanut-topped nougat base coated in vegan milk chocolate.

His first comment was, “it tastes like normal chocolate but yummier”, closely followed by “I like the bits of nuts that are inside”. Personally, I actually preferred it to its big-brand, non-vegan counterpart. The peanut flavour was good and strong, the caramel sticky and sweet. The nougat was definitely softer and had less of a nougat-like consistency than the well-known alternative, but the combination of flavours worked really well.

Next up, the Peanut Butter Cups. This was probably the product he was most excited about – again, because of his love of the popular big name brand.

“I like the look of them and how they taste”, he proclaimed. I’d have to agree. The vegan chocolate is lovely and creamy, but it does taste different to regular chocolate. The filling is lovely and salty – and as it’s not quite as claggy as the other brand, it doesn’t stick to the roof of your mouth, making it easier to eat.

The White Choc Cre&m Wafer Bars were probably my favourite. The boy was a fan too: “yummy – I liked the hazelnut and almond inside”, he declared. The vegan white chocolate on the outside was delicious. The crispy wafer enclosed a seriously creamy, incredibly sweet filling with a smooth, nutty flavour. This felt so decadent – a real treat!

The only product that he wasn’t really a fan of was the Salted Caramel Cre&m Wafer Bars. I can understand, in a way, as the flavour is INCREDIBLY rich. There’s a strong salted caramel aroma as soon as you open the packet, and the beautiful golden blonde colour gives a hint of what’s to come. The filling is creamy, rich and incredibly sweet – it’s definitely a product that would curb sugar cravings pretty well!

The products we received are just a small taste of what LoveRaw has to offer. I’m intrigued by their Caramelised Biscuit Cre&m Wafer Bars, as well as their Nutty Choc Balls, which have a whole hazelnut inside. Take a look at their website to see the full range
