  • Someone bought me: Montezuma's dark chocolate. Free from gluten, soya, colourings, gm etc. Made in West Sussex too.

    montezumas.co.uk

    Not a chocolate fan so packet still here to lift the info off!

  • Thanks jacks, i love dark chocolate so im going to have a look at the link yiu have kindly sent.๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Sainsburys Finest do some lovely 70% dark chocolate bars - from Ecuador, Belgium etc. There are a few which have no soya lecithin in them & they don't say may be contaminated etc. Can't remember which particular one has no soya, so you will need to look on the ingredient list, but they are nice!

  • Ooh sainsburys thats good and 70% i like it mine quite dark, one its better for you and you feel better about eating it then, ha thats my excuse anyway.

  • Try visiting Tesco Online. They have a wide range of chocolate bars and if you click on the item you are searching for it gives a list of all the ingredients, including potential allergens; e.g.

    tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/p...

    I too am a chocoholic.

  • Thankyou mathri i will also have a look at tesco aswell, the more choccy the merrier. Used to love green and blacks and lhindts but all say may be cross contaminated and its a risk you take then. Id prefer to go without if it says that. Been looking for a while now. But thankyou for your help.๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Hi, may be worth checking out vegantown.co.uk as they specialise in vegan choc but a lot of them are also gluten free

  • Thankyou ukbusybee thats very kind as i wouldnt have thought about vegan confectionery. My brother is a vegan for many years so i will pass to him aswell, โ˜บ

  • No worries. Iโ€™m gluten and dairy intolerant so usually meets both my needs. I can easily spend ยฃ40 stocking up from them. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • Its expensive isnt it all these foods in a bid to stay well, it must be a pain being gluten and ldairy intolerant, im just celiac.x

  • I believe Aldis is gluten free and very cheap - possibly even lidls but can't remember. I know a lot of people go there to buy it :-)

    I agree, couldn't cope with dairy free!

  • Thankyou i will check that, i will google it has a dont have soya aswell.xx

  • Thats a shame aldis and mont roth brand they sell has got soya in, i dont eat soya because of thyroid problems. Whats your take on it on a gluten free level? People have mixed views on it.๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Gluten was definitely the evil one for me as my health has been soooo much better since GF and everything I had wrong since i was a kid went away or reversed - apart from thyroid! - as it's already dead lol. I'm still eating soya at the mo but am planning to maybe take it out for a while and see if makes any difference at some point. I don't eat much of it anyway to be honest but we'll see :-)

  • After eight mints are dark choc and GF if you like them? I do sometimes have the lindt dark orange one - but to be honest, I've given up as react sometimes. Don't touch cadburies either as always come up in blisters. I stick to either kinder like their choco bons which are lovely and most of thorntons are GF, I think only one or two of their products have gluten in so maybe try there.

    :-)

  • Oh just remembered, M&S do GF dark chocolate - don't think there was soy in there but not sure.

  • Thankyou so much for your help saggyuk. I do love a after eight mint- i am now going to look at them and also xheck m and s dark choccy.

  • I've just looked on my packets of 85% Swiss choc from tescos, Equador 70% from Lidl and 60% Amazonas from Lidl...no mention of wheat on any of them but all 3 are a "may contain" soya.. worth a try if the soya isn't quite so crucial? I guess that's there to cover themselves.

  • Thankyou naturalnatty, really do appeciate all the help ive had from people here, i love chocolate but do avoid soya because i have a thyroid problem so i do stay clear of it.๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Yes, it's a shame when they say they may contain something we are sensitive to. They probably don't but possibly not worth the risk :-(

    Hope you find some ! ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Try these if you're feeling flush:

    chocolate-express.co.uk/Glu...

  • They look divine sooo yummy but contain soya so very disappointed but i have managed to buy a choccy bar today from sainsburys today, dark choc with orange and geranium- gluten and soya free. Its lovely aswell. But thankyou

    ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Oh dear, didn't spot the soya. Bummer!

  • Was the choccy you bought Montezuma? I love that flavour combo.

  • Yes. From sainsburys, really nice taste.xx
