- Dark Chocolate Dream Rice Crunch
This Dark Chocolate Dream Rice Crunch Bar is reminiscent of a Nestle Crunch bar, only way better since it’s vegan! The puffed wild rice is nicely distributed and the dark chocolate is creamy, although a little on the sweet side. This bar is made in one of the few completely dairy-free and gluten-free facilities in the world, so there’s no fear of cross-contamination with this chocolate bar!
Update (2/14/20): It appears this product has been discontinued but I’ve been eating this one instead! This awesome Dark Chocolate Dream Rice Crunch is like a vegan Nestle Crunch bar! Actually, it kind of reminds me more of those crispy chocolate bunny shaped foil-covered candy bars I used to get in my Easter basket as a kid. These are a little sweeter than I thought they would be, and not being a fan of super-sweet stuff I was surprised when I kept going back for another bite. It doesn’t have a real strong dark chocolate taste, and it tastes more like a milk chocolate to me. I soon found myself looking forward to eating a row of this every night as my before bedtime treat. I love my fancy vegan chocolate bars (and other sweets of course) so I have to ration myself to one row of a chocolate bar per night, or else the whole thing will be gone before I know it! Most of the time this works out, but sometimes I get crazy and have two rows, like I kept doing with this rice crunch bar.
The “crunch” parts (puffed wild rice) are big and well-distributed throughout the chocolate bar. This bar is also gluten free, non-GMO, and made in one of the few facilities worldwide that guarantees to be free of dairy and gluten (no cross-contamination at this place!).
As you can see, the first ingredient is sugar, which explains the extra sweetness. I randomly spotted this vegan Dark Chocolate Dream bar on a trip to Whole Foods (it’s an hour away) and I’m so glad I picked it up! I would definitely purchase this bar again 100%.
