Vegan foodie goodies review from the Vegan supermarket Veganz in Berlin!

A  while ago, I went to Berlin for a holiday. The last day, we went visiting the only vegan supermarket in Berlin, called Veganz. You can read all about it : HERE! 

Veganz, Vegan supermarket!
A super cool store in Berlin!

I also bought some vegan edibles that you just can’t find over here in Belgium, too bad 😦  Now, what did I buy?

Read on to find out!

1. Vantastic Foods, Vegan Chocolate Buttons ( similar to milk chocolate ones ). They are Gluten-free, Vegan & of course Lactose-Free too!! They are a bit large though. 1 packet of 500 gr. costed me 6.99 €. That’s a lot of money but it is vegan & 500 gr!!!

Vegan chocolate buttons: ( similar to milk chocolate ) to use in vegan hot chocolate, in cookies, cakes & muffins.

You can read the ingredients.

2. Moo free chocolates: mini moos : 3 times vegan honeycomb bars. 3 x 25 gr. There is no honey in here! Vegan, Lactose-free, Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free , Egg-Free, Casein-Free & Dairy-Free! Yes! It costed: 2.60€.

Vegan 3 times mini moos honeycomb bars! Yeah!
All vegan & no honey in these!
These bars are made of a combo of cacao, sugar & rice topped with crunchy honeycomb: no honey in here!!!

I show you an image from the inside because I haven’t opened it yet! 🙂

3. Moo Free Chocolates: Dairy Free , Vegan, Lactose-Free, Gluten-Free, Wheat-Free Hazelnut Chocolate Bar

On the left, Moo Free caramelized hazelnuts bar! That’s the one, on the left that I bought! So good, so vegan too!

These bars are made out of delicious, organic, dairy free chocolate and liberally sprinkled it with crunchy, caramelized hazelnut nibs. These really are a bar of pure, unadulterated, dairy free chocolate pleasure. It tastes a lot like milk chocolate. That’s what I used to eat. Now, I can only eat vegan chocolates because they are lactose-free too. I have already eaten it all & it was similar to a milk chocolate bar with caramelized hazelnuts but a bit different & more heavy, but lovely too. It was so fast gone,….For this left bar, 100 gr, it costed me 3.49€.

4. Moo Free : Advent Calendar: Vegan, Dairy free, lactose free, wheat free, egg free, gluten-free!! Alternative to milk chocolate!!!

Moo Free dairy-Free & Vegan advent Calendar!

This advent Vegan & Dairy-Free calendar multi-award winning, organic advent calendars will make a real treat for children of any age with or without milk allergies, dairy intolerance or who are vegan. Each dairy free advent calendar is filled with 130 g of our quality, organic, dairy free rice milk chocolate. The fun packed, full size (A 4) dairy free advent calendar box features five of the Moo Free animals enjoying a dairy free chocolate Christmas together.

These organic, dairy free rice milk chocolate advent calendars are unique. The company doesn’t believe that you will find another organic, milk chocolate tasting dairy free advent calendar manufactured anywhere else in the world. Each dairy free chocolate advent calendar is made in the UK factory that does not manufacture milk chocolate or any other milk based products. As with all of our dairy free chocolates our chocolate advent calendars are made using a combination of natural, organic and fair trade ingredients. Price? 6€.

5. Dairy Free Carob Confection from Planil, 100 gr bar. This is a divine darker carob chocolate bar: Starch free,Dairy-Free, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Wheat-Free & Lactose-Free too. So good, so intense flavour: so yummy!

Dairy Free & vegan carob confection!
A tasty soothing & warm carob flavoured dairy-free & vegan chocolate bar! So good!

What is carob?

Carob pods are the fruit of the carob tree. Carob pods grow to 12 inches long( = 30 cm ). If you bite into a ripe carob, you will almost certainly enjoy it’s semi-sweet, mild flavour. It is rich in vitamins and minerals and has no caffeine (theobromine), or oxalic acid. The carob seeds are removed and the real pods are ground into powder and roasted to make carob powder. I use carob powder as an alternative to cacao. It is sweeter & it tastes great in hot plant-based milks. I also make lovely desserts with it. You can find my recipe of my Vegan carob, avocado & banana pudding here!

Dairy free carob bars made without hydrogenated fat! For centuries in the Mediterranean region carob pods have been widely enjoyed for their nutritional benefits and natural sweetness. Plamil blend their new carob bars to have a mild ‘chocolate’ taste using cocoa butter (natural cocoa fat), which provides that distinctive ‘bite’ without containing elements in chocolate known to trigger migraines.

This carob bar is naturally packed with many natural vitamin and mineral nutrients from the carob pods. As carob is naturally much sweeter than cocoa far less sugar need be added compared with chocolate. The new Carob ‘no hydrogenated fat’ contains only 10% added sugar (that’s about 30% of the added sugar in a 70% cocoa chocolate bar).

You can read the ingredients here!

6. Vegan Christmas Cookies, 1 box of 175 gr, with apple, nuts & marzipan.It costed me 2.99€. I will open them at Christmas!

7. A packet of organic chia seeds. We can’t buy chai seeds over here in healths stores in Belgium. We have to buy them online. When I saw, this packet, I had to grab it!

A packet of chia seeds

What are chia seeds?

Chia seeds are tiny,  hard and have a subtle nut-like flavor when chewed, but they have the unique property of absorbing liquid.  When stirred into liquid they soften and absorb 9-12 times their own weight of the liquid. They take on the taste of whatever liquid they are placed in, which makes them ideal to use as a thickener in all sorts of recipes.

Chia seeds are super foods! The high omega fat content, high in omega-3 & omega-6, of the seeds make them useful as a substitute for butter or eggs in baking, which can cut down on calories  and adds to their versatility. So, it is very good to use in vegan cooking & vegan baking.

When you add chia seeds to your diet, you will soon begin to see the results. They are a true super food, a powerhouse of nutrition.  Most people soon notice an increase in energy, clearer thinking and a calmer, happier mood. The high fiber content aids regularity in a natural, gentle way.

After a couple of months  you should notice clearer skin and more glossy hair, a result, of the high omega 3 content of the seeds. Because chia seeds digest slowly they make you feel fuller longer which can be an aid to weight loss.

So, start using them in your foods! I bought this packet for 12€. That’s a lot of mony, hey!

A few lovely recipes using them, from other great boggers:

1. Carob chia seeds mini Bundt cakes from Pure2raw

2. Chia seed granola with walnuts & almonds from My kitchen in the Rockies

3. Chia seeds to use as an egg-replacer in vegan baking: from Veganbaking.net

  1. We’ve been using the Carob a lot lately, great alternative to chocolate. 🙂

  2. Wow! That veganz store must have loved you – you bought so much. I love the idea of the Advent calendars. And I really must start cooking with chia seeds. I know they’re good for you but I had no idea how good! Thanks for the info xx

  3. This is really comprehensive, thank you! 🙂 I love carob too. I actually prefer it over chocolate- something about the richness of flavor.

  4. Wow! I really enjoyed your post. My sister recently returned from Berlin (we are Australian), and she had visited Veganz. She showed me photos and I was so excited to see such a large vegan store! My sister also went to a great restaurant (veggie world?) that had 26 varieties of vegie burger! Did you go there? I think I have to go to Berlin!
    I love the things you bought. The Moo ‘honeycomb’ choccies are delicious!
    I love chia seeds too. I grind them in a spice grinder with flaxseeds -then add to smoothies and sprinkle on my kids’ cereal.
    Thank you for a great post!

  5. I’m jealous of your amazing ,yummy chocolate purchases! I hope you savour and enjoy everyone of them! Everything looks great!!
