Whoever said ‘Save Earth. It is the only planet with chocolate’ got it right. When my son was diagnosed with being allergic to all the top 8 food allergens and more, my second thought (first was ‘why me?’) was, ‘my son can never eat chocolate :-(.’ Then the good folks at Enjoy Life foods came up with chocolate made from rice milk and it is definitely their best product yet. My son and even his friends who have no allergies love it!

Review: The rice milk chocolate is so good that I would go so far to say – it is one of the best allergy friendly products out there because it is pretty close to the real thing. It is available in 3 varieties: Milk, Dark Chocolate and Crispy Rice. The Dark Chocolate and Crispy Rice are especially good. It is smooth, rich and leaves no weird after-taste. Of course, it should come as no surprise that like all allergy friendly foods – it is relatively expensive! A small 1.4 oz bar costs over $2.00. Even if you buy it in bulk – it is not much cheaper. However, the joy of seeing my son relish a piece of chocolate is priceless!
