Vegan Treats CANDY!

This Valentine's Day, I heard a rumor that Vegan Treats was going to be offering chocolates.  I nonchalantly mentioned this to my Valentine's Day chocolate suppliers and, a few days after the holiday (before I had even finished my first gift, which was from Rose City), I happily accepted a second present of Valentine's Day booty.

But Vegan Treats wasn't just offering "chocolates"; they were offering CANDY!  Replications Veganified Superior versions of candy bars that I once knew and loved: specifically, peanut butter cups and Twix bars.  Truth be told, I have always liked dark chocolate more than milk, so I've been pining for dark chocolate versions of mainstream candies even before I was vegan.  So, dark, vegan versions are a miracle.

I don't know why I'm surprised, but Vegan Treats really hit the mark with these.  Both candies were at the same time authentic, yet artisinal.

The peanut butter cups: offered in a long, slender, window-pane box filled with minis or in a two-pack of regulation size, were enticingly drizzled with peanut butter.  Thick, dark chocolate surrounded Vegan Treats' signature peanut butter, otherwise found atop favorite staples such as their PB cheesecakes and brownies.  I'd recommend the larger sized cup because of their heavier proportion of peanut butter to chocolate.

The "Twix" were equally as scrumptious, if not moreso.  Two sticks wrapped in adorable baggies decorated with hearts, it was a gift suitable for just about anyone.  A hunk of magnificent cookie/shortbread was smothered in a ridiculously delicious & generous helping of caramel, and then the top was coated with dark chocolate.  With an exact ratio of each ingredient, the result was divine to my astounded tastebuds.  I shall never pine for Twix of days gone by whilst in the check-out line of the supermarket ever again!

In conclusion, Vegan Treats does it again.  What can't they do?

(Psst, please make a Whatchamacallit.)
