I love chocolate. My desk is stocked with an impressive array of dark and milk chocolates, but this week, I got to try something special: Nicobella Vegan Organic Dark Chocolate Truffles

Nicobella Vegan Organic Dark Chocolate Truffles are special because, unlike traditional chocolate truffles, which are made from a mixture of chocolate, cream and butter, Nicobella Vegan Organic Dark Chocolate Truffles are made with healthy, vegan ingredients and infused with powerhouse antioxidants. Instead of butter and cream, Nicobella Vegan Organic Dark Chocolate Truffles are made with organic oat milk, organic agave nectar, organic cocoa butter and organic banana puree that replicates the creamy thickness of conventional truffles—but without the use of animal byproducts. Though I'm not a vegan (or even a vegetarian—I'm more of a flexitarian), I appreciate the thoughtfulness that goes behind producing wholesome, organic, vegan food—and I'm always interested in trying new chocolates!

I love that in addition to sourcing the finest ingredients for its truffles (Nicobella sources its organic, fair trade chocolate from Theo Chocolate, a Natural Home favorite), Nicobella also uses vegetable-based inks on its Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified packaging materials. This small company has all-around good taste!

Blueberry Almond 

Delicious, antioxidant-rich blueberries combine with dark chocolate and toasted almond for a naturally sweet, nutty truffle. 

Ginger Green Tea 

Energizing green tea and powerful ginger awaken your taste buds.

Pumpkin Chai 

A perfect marriage of sugar and spice, organic pumpkin and chai come together to create a charming truffle that melts in your mouth.

Sunflower Banana Butter 

Both creamy and nutty, this truffle is best for those who love sunflower seeds—the flavor is powerful!

Walnut Flaxseed Crunch 

Stocked full of omega-3 fatty acids, Walnut Flaxseed Crunch truffles appeal to those who prefer a little more texture in their truffles.

Pure Cocoa Bliss

Decadent chocolate and vanilla keep this classic truffle elegantly simple and delicious.
