The Moo Free Chocolate Story
Hammy Hamster loved both of her baby hamsters very much but felt very sad as one of them could not eat dairy products due to a dairy intolerance. In those days it was very hard to find milk alternatives and at Easter she only managed to find a yukkie carob Easter egg, which did not taste like chocolate at all. Even soya products were few and far between and had a funny after taste. She faced a dilemma; should both baby hamsters go without an Easter egg? This decision was taken out of her control as other Hamsters gave the dairy intolerant baby hamster milk chocolate Easter eggs. She then had to take them away from the baby hamster. It was hard for that baby hamster to understand.
Then one day Hammy heard about Maisy Moo, a cow whose calf was taken away from her at birth. She was then made to give away all of her milk that should have been for her baby cow. Maisy never got to see her calf again and was very sad. Hammy decided that Maisy Moo should not have to give her milk to make chocolate. So she decided to find another way to make chocolate, but retain the lovely milky taste.
After a few years of experimenting Hammy finally did it. "I don't need your milk for my chocolate Maisy" she told her, "go on, you're free". Maisy Moo had long been dreaming of her baby calf and set off on her quest to find her.
Remembering the disappointment of her baby at Easter, Hammy decided to make some dairy free Easter eggs. After several chocolate tasting trials the scrummy Easter eggs were finally ready. They were so delicious that all the baby hamsters loved them, even those that didn't have to have dairy free chocolate.
Hammy Hamster and her friends are now hard at work making lots more dairy free chocolates that are also gluten free, wheat free, egg free, vegetarian and vegan as well.
