Plamil Foods have just launched an innovative Vegan chocolate bar. Although many popular varieties of dairy free ‘milky’ chocolates are often marketed to young people they contain more sugar than most varieties of chocolate. In a time when the reduction of sugar is recommended for good health reasons, many chocolate loving vegans are looking to reduce the amount of sugar they consume. Fortunately this is now possible. A great tasting alternative to sugar packed chocolate has been created.

 

Lots of This None of That is a scrumptious dairy free ‘milky’ chocolate bar that amazingly has reduced sugar and is also gluten and nut free. Although it tastes great, a 30g bar of Lots of This None of That contains less sugar than other 20g vegan milk chocolate bars. Produced by Plamil, the highest ranked Ethical chocolate manufacturer, Lots of This None of That is made using renewable energy. This revolutionary new bar is the future for dairy free chocolate. The cocoa is certified under the UTZ Certified sustainability programme.

Plamil, the oldest vegan company in the UK has been pioneering new products for over fifty years and making dairy free chocolate since 1983. Many vegan chocolate brands are made in factories which produce other products. Even if the ingredients are listed as vegan some may contain trace elements of dairy products due to manufacturing methods. All our chocolates are dairy and gluten free and are made in the Kent based 'no nuts used here' Plamil Chocolate Factory.

Here at Bute Island Foods we are dedicated to creating tasty, credible vegan alternatives to traditional dairy products.


Our award-winning innovative range consists of 9 delicious flavours of vegan hard cheese – known as “Sheese”. There are 5 Cheddars and another four flavours besides, including Blue and Mozzarella, to further tantalise your taste-buds. With a Sheese for every occasion and taste, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Another firm favourite is our range of 6 Creamy Sheeses. Wonderfully soft and spreadable, good for using on crackers and toast, and for rich flavoursome sauces by stirring in a few tablespoons – especially the Cheddar or spring onion flavours.


Our ground-breaking Melty Sheese is the latest addition – they’re absolutely perfect for pizzas, pasta and cracking cheese toasties. Try the smoked variety for real flavour and tang, or the eye-appeal of Red Cheddar.


Sheese is dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free and lactose-free, as well as being Kosher certified. So, whether because of milk allergies, lifestyle choice or simply because you care for animals, you really can smile and say Sheese!

Sheese is available from independent health-stores, online from www.goodnessdirect.co.uk, www.veggiestuff.com and Tesco stores in the chilled free-from section under their own branding.

We love what we do and we make our chocolate adding as much love and smiles as possible.
