Vegan Delights at Mama Ganache

truffles on the table

Some of our vegan truffles are enjoying the holiday decorations on our coffee table – with a cocoa pod, some cocoa nibs and beans, and a beautiful chocolate soy candle from the Chocolate Flower Farm. It’s been raining for days, but late the other afternoon the sun started to break through the clouds and the shop filled with a soft glow.

Here’s the coconut vegan truffle. The rich, dark chocolate ganache is softened with coconut milk instead of cream, and in place of butter, a touch of olive oil, and then rolled in coconut, all organic.

The SLOChew, probably our most popular chocolate, is the ultimate turtle: a vegan caramel and cashew center dipped in dark chocolate with a little peanut butter and some brown rice crispies. All organic, of course. The vegan salt caramel has a dollop of incredibly creamy caramel coated in 70% dark chocolate with a generous sprinkle of sea salt on top.

Mama Ganache’s vegan caramel is made with coconut milk and hand-pressed palm oil from South America, not from Indonesia, where the palm oil industry is devastating the habitat of the orangutans by aggressively cutting down the rainforest. Palm oil itself is an excellent oil,  trans-fat-free, rich in antioxidants, tasteless and light, quite possibly inhibiting cancer, stroke and heart disease. It’s an unspeakable tragedy that almost all of it is produced in such an unconscionable way – we’re glad Spectrum carries an organic hand-pressed oil.

  1. Our vegan products leave a smile on your lips, no fat around your hips (consumed, that is, thoughtfully), and unlike Nutella, which got socked with major taxes in France because it uses Indonesian palm oil, ours is earth-friendly.
