Plamil Rum & Raisin Dairy Free Chocolate

The Verdict

Since having to give up dairy, my husband has been really missing his daily chocolate fixes.  We were really looking forward to trying this chocolate, especially me,  as I really like Cadbury Bournville Old Jamaica Rum & Raisin chocolate.  The Plamil bar contained 8 squares of rum and raisin organic chocolate, the top of the bar is imprinted with a flower and leaf pattern and the bottom of the bar has the raisins sprinkled onto it.

First impressions were good, the bar looked really nice and smelled really great too.  Disappointingly, it didn’t taste as nice as it looked or smelled.  The chocolate was extremely bitter and it had a very odd flavour to it which also left you with a really strange after taste.  We were struggling to sum up what the flavour actually reminded us of,  the comment that seemed to best fit the bill was that it tasted strange and it was almost as if the raisins had gone off.

Sadly, this Plamil Rum Flavoured Organic Chocolate with Raisins was not for us.  We definitely preferred their Dairy Free Alternative to Milk Chocolate. Plamil have a huge and very impressive range of Dairy Free products so watch this space for further reviews.
