Chocolate Review – nut free, gluten free, cow milk free – made in Devon

During my holiday in Devon I got to visit a wonderful food fair.  I will be posting more on this later hopefully.  

However I discovered through recommendation a wonderful chocolatier, with a difference and for all my equally chocolate addicted blogger friends thought to share my finds with you.


Chocolats de Caprine are all:-

  • Gluten free 
  • Nut free
  • Cows milk free

Dark chiocolate & stem ginger



Almost crunchy shell with melting interior that’s light in texture and disappears fast.  Inbetween the soft chocolate interior are little soft pieces of ginger nice and nibbly.  The dark chocolate isn’t bitter yet it holds its own in chocolate intensity. There is a subtleness brought about by the goats milk used.

Salted Caramels



Now I love the Prestat salted milk chocolate I could eat them non stop so I was interested to see how these compared. I would say they are like the more ‘country style’ variation. Imagine the big bold farmer compared to the Sleek City Worker, both have their merits.

It has a dark chocolate shell that collapses easily to reveal a creamy caramel interior. The salt and sweetness hits your taste buds with a pleasant punch! It’s a “Ohhh” moment.  Not for the faint hearted of taste connoisseurs. 

I loved it but couldn’t quaff a whole box like the Prestat but it’s equally divine.


Both chocolates had to me especially the ginger a taste of ‘goat’ milk. They claim one only tastes this after but I am not convinced.  However it’s not a negative I like this because it’s different and tasty!

The makers of this chocolate are just a couple with their herd of goats.  No big corporations. So small they don’t even travel far afield as they can’t leave their herd and have no neighbours to help.

But you can buy online, go on you won’t be disappointed I wasn’t.
