Happi Free From has created a new range of oat milk chocolate snacks in response to the growing demand for vegan and allergy-friendly sweet treats that can be enjoyed on-the-go. Available in 100g bags, gluten-free Happi Oat M!lk Chocolate Nibbles are bite-size treats available in three variants: Jumbo Raisins, Almonds and Vegan Honeycomb, all covered in oat milk chocolate. “Our Happi Free From Chocolate is gaining a strong and loyal following so extending the product range into the snack category makes perfect sense,” says founder Gavin Cox. “The new Nibbles range offers something for everyone; catering for those who enjoy dried fruit or nuts, or perhaps something a bit sweeter like honeycomb. They are a really delicious treat.” Happi uses ethically-sourced chocolate and no single-use plastic packaging in its products.
