Organic Vegan Truffles & Caramels

For more than a decade, Allison’s Gourmet has been delighting customers throughout North America with organic and vegan gourmet treats made from the finest ingredients. Today, the leading online organic gift shop (www.allisonsgourmet.com) is announcing a new 2-Piece Chocolates Box featuring their luscious organic vegan truffles and caramels.

Designed as a chocolate turn-down treat for owners of Bed & Breakfasts, Lodges and Hotels to give to their guests, the 2-Piece Chocolates Box from Allison's Gourmet offers a healthier way to indulge in something sweet because the premium truffles and caramels are freshly made with only the finest organic ingredients available. All of the gourmet goodies from Allison's Gourmet are free of animal ingredients, cholesterol and highly-refined sweeteners. So, although their organic treats are delicious for everyone, they are of special appeal to people with food sensitivities or who lead a vegan lifestyle.

Customers purchasing the new Allison’s Gourmet 2-Piece Chocolates Box can choose from six delicious varieties: Peanut Caramel, Pecan Caramel, Chocolate Caramel, Hazelnut Truffle, Almond Truffle and Mocha Truffle. The price for each gift box is $5.00, and like all of the scrumptious treats from Allison's Gourmet, it is artistically presented in eco-friendly gift packaging. The 2-Piece Chocolates Box also makes a great party favor for weddings and other special occasions.

In addition to the 2-Piece Chocolates Box, Allison's Gourmet also offers organic, vegan fair-trade chocolate "mints for the pillow". These small disks are in the shape of coins (rounds) and can be purchased in mint, plain dark chocolate or orange. They are sold for $1.00 each.

The collection from Allison's Gourmet also includes Vegan Fudge; Gourmet Cookies and Brownies; Chocolate Cups and Barks; Individually-wrapped Caramels; Crunchy Almond Toffees; Peanut Brittles; and Organic Coffee, Tea and Hot Cocoa. The Gourmet Gift Baskets and Gourmet Organic Gift Tins make spectacular gifts, and Sampler Packs are available for those who can't make up their mind and want to try some of everything.
