Friends, I feel it's my duty to bring to your attention this amazing vegan fudge.
This is Proper Fudge. I've been disappointed many times by vegan fudge, it's always soft and fondant-y and a bit kind of doughy, nice enough but I can make that kind of fudge myself. This Slab artisan fudge is still soft, but it has that crunchy, crispy, almost crystal (but not gritty), melt in the mouth texture of the dairy fudge I loved in my pre-vegan days. Does that make sense? I'm not sure I have the right words to describe how good Slab fudge is, suffice it to say it's satisfied my fudge-y needs in a way no other vegan fudge ever has.
I ordered 4 flavours, classic (it's sweet and slightly vanilla-y), death by chocolate (it tastes like the chocolate fudge icing my mum used to make for my birthday cakes), maple and walnut (this is for Joe, but I've taste tested it for him and it's super sweet and maple-y with nutty bits in) and choc toffee (this is my favourite, the toffee flavour is ah-maz-ing and it's swirled with chocolate fudge). It's all coconut based, and you can taste that slightly in all the flavours, moreso in the classic and chocolate flavours.
I asked for my fudge to be packed with as little plastic as possible (because I'd seen this post on Instagram!). This is how my Slab fudge order arrived.
One piece of fudge had a bit of a whoopsie and was broken, but it's going to get broken when I eat and chew it anyway, so that's not an issue for me. I've kept it wrapped in it's greaseproof paper and popped it into a Pyrex box. Yey for plastic free fudge! (although the box did have plastic tape and bits on it, it's so hard to do anything completely plastic free and I really appreciate the effort Slab made to reduce the plastic)
Slab vegan fudge costs £3.50 per 150g piece, and you get free shipping on orders over £10. They also sell dairy fudge, so make sure you order from the right section! Fudge is made to order and mine came within 6 days of ordering. I had cause to contact their customer services with a question, and they got back to me within a couple of hours and were super friendly and knowledgeable.
This isn't a sponsored post. I just like fudge. And I'm going to eat some now!
