Vegan chocolate dates launched in Dubai in time for Ramadan

The range is entirely dairy-free and even comes in sharing boxes


Everyone knows that the best way to make fruit better is by dipping it in chocolate. Except vegans, obviously.

But now there is a quick fix for those who have turned to the plant life but miss the sweet taste of delicious cocoa.

Mirzam has launched an entirely vegan collection which includes several items made using 100 percent dark chocolate.

The dairy-free range features seven creations made with UAE-grown dates and intensely flavoured freeze-dried fruits.

There are plenty of gifting options which are perfect to share, such as boxes of dates ideal for iftar and suhoor guests. Or you can eat them all yourself. We're not judging.

The selection includes dates filled with crunchy roasted pumpkin seeds and dipped in dark chocolate.

It also features dates filled with coconut and coated with 100% dark chocolate.

Now we're hungry for chocolate – even if it doesn't include any dairy.
Available from Sunday May 6. Sun-Tue 10am to 7pm, Wed-Sat 10am to 9pm. Mirzam Chocolate Makers, Al Quoz, (04 333 5888).
