g.org.e (guilt-free organic eating) truffles are delicious despite being made without dairy, gluten, soya, egg, grains, yeast, added sugar or sugar substitutes. Instead, they're packed with organic, raw superfood ingredients like raw cacao butter, almonds and freeze-dried cherries. Some do contain a splash of alcohol, though, so they're best for fans of boozy chocolate.
