Free From Christmas Chocolate

The recent Hotel Chocolat episode encouraged me and others in the allergy and coeliac community to look into genuine free-from chocolate products ā€” particularly Christmas chocolate, which came up during the weekly Allergy Hour Twitter chat yesterday evening.

You’ll find a list of free-from chocolate brands at the foot of the Hotel Chocolat article, but here are some specific seasonal options which we uncovered.

    Great round-up, thanks Alex. FAQ page on the D&D website says their chocolate products are now produced in a soya-free environment. Could they be added to your 14-free list?

      Ah, well spotted. Funnily enough I emailed them to ask them about that possibility, but haven’t yet heard back.
