Now stocking – lactose-free vegan fudge!

9th April 2018

(Edit: We’ve updated this to be a lactose-free fudge, suitable for those with lactose intolerances!)

Roly’s Fudge have introduced a lactose-free vegan fudge, adapted from our traditional crumbly fudge recipe.

The lactose-free fudge comes in two flavours – Lactose-Free Salted Maple & Pecan, and Lactose-Free Maple & Cashew – and is fully accredited by the Vegan Society.

Since its release at the end of February, the new lactose-free range has taken the UK by storm, and is available in most Roly’s Fudge Pantries across the country as well as online.


How is it made?

Roly’s Fudge was established on a traditional family recipe that has been passed down through generations, made using artisan fudge making methods. We have always been proud of our fudge being made with real butter, milk and sugar, with all of our fudge pantries striving to source this as locally as possible.

Because of this recipe, the hallmark of Roly’s Fudge is our crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth fudge.

This was one of the most important aspects when considering how to make a lactose-free and vegan fudge flavour.

To get this right, we spent months experimenting and researching to make the perfect fudge.

The ingredients we settled on were organic soya milk and organic coconut oil, and we added finest cashew butter too.

Originally we planned to make one lactose-free flavour, but after finding two fantastic combinations, we decided to release both!

New packaging

We wanted this to be a fudge for everyone – so alongside making sure it stayed lactose-free by carefully making it in our Roly’s Fudge Pantries, we also wanted to make it suitable for vegans.

No accreditation is better than from the Vegan Society itself, so we worked hard to make sure all our ingredients were vegan friendly, from the sugar in all of our fudges to the maple syrup! We even researched into whether monkeys were used to harvest the coconuts in our organic coconut oil!

This accreditation is proudly displayed on all of our cello bags, and we also have Vegan Society stickers on all of our boxes – so you can be sure when you’re eating this fudge flavour that you’re eating vegan fudge.

The packaging is brand new for vegan and LF flavours only, with a rustic buff brown and light green, using paper that is sustainably sourced.
