Montezuma's speciality Orangutang vegan chocolate bars
Palm also pops up a lot in food, including under the guise of vegetable oil at times. Think of all the things that either are cooked in vegetable oil, or contain it. The Palm Oil Threat report on BOS's website mentions just a tiny amount of food that palm can be found in; "ice cream, chocolate, biscuits, crisps, margerine" (to read the report, click on the quote, and search for "Palm Oil Threat Report" under their left-hand-side Downloads heading)...

Luckily for the orangutans, chocolate maker Montezuma's have assured me that all of their products are absolutely palm-free. Their prize donation is a collection of speciality Orangutang chocolate bars that I am sharing out between competitions. These nummy-looking choccies are made from dark chocolate with vanilla, flavoured with tangy orange oil. No preservatives, additives or colourings. Simple, yet effective. Oh dear, look out, don't drool over your keyboard!

Ook, scrumptious dark orange choccy!

There's some of them. You can tell Orangutang bars apart from other bars due to their cool orangutan picture, much like you can tell orangutans apart from other apes by their orange coat... although this one is white and green!

Both non-vegans and vegans alike should be able to chomp on these tasty-looking treats (although Montezuma's do warn they may contain dairy traces, probably because they make some non-vegan choccies too). Just a note of caution if you're allergic to nuts - Montezuma's use nuts a lot in the factory these are made in.

Organic food lovers will be happy with these bars too, and if chocolate is supposed to affect your happiness, then palm-free chocolate must make you feel really happy! Just a reminder for the winners though - don't scoff them all at once; like the poor orangutans, once they're gone, they're gone...

You can find out more about Montezuma's on my "Thanks/Links" page.
