Moo Free Story
The Moo Free Story
Hammy Hamster loved both of her baby hamsters very much but felt very sad as one of them could not eat dairy products due to a dairy intolerance. In those days it was very hard to find milk alternatives and at Easter she only managed to find a yukkie carob Easter egg, which did not taste like chocolate at all. Even soya products were few and far between and had a funny aftertaste. She faced a dilemma; should both baby hamsters go without an Easter egg? It was very hard for her poor little baby hamster to understand.
Then one day Hammy heard about Maisy Moo, a cow whose calf was taken away from her when it was born. She was then made to give away all of her milk that should have been for her baby cow. Maisy never got to see her calf again and was very sad. Hammy decided that Maisy Moo should not have to give her milk to make chocolate. So she decided to find another way to make milk chocolate without using any cow's milk.
After a few years of experimenting Hammy finally did it. "I don't need your milk for my chocolate Maisy" she told her, "go on, you're free". Maisy Moo had long been dreaming of her baby calf and set off on her quest to find her.
Remembering the disappointment of her baby at Easter, Hammy decided to first try and make some dairy free Easter eggs. After several chocolate tasting trials the scrummy Easter eggs were finally ready. They were so delicious that all the baby hamsters loved them, even those that didn't have to have dairy free chocolates.
Hammy Hamster and her friends now work very hard to make lots of dairy free chocolates for everyone.
