What Chocolate Is Vegan?

Chocolate is one of the best inventions humanity has ever come up with, hands down. However, if you are a vegan, then you might start thinking that you’ve been locked out of one of life’s greatest pleasures.

What Chocolate Is Vegan

However, you’ll be happy to hear that this is not the case, as there are plenty of vegan choccies out there.

Milk is obviously a big component of milk chocolate. But there are plenty of chocolates that do not contain milk or any dairy products whatsoever.

With the increase in veganism, the rise of vegan chocolate has become exponential.

But where can you find decent vegan chocolate? Well, we’ve done a lot of leg work for you and sourced a list of some of the best vegan chocolate bars on this side of the Atlantic. So, look below for some amazing dairy-free chocolate.

What Types Of Vegan Chocolate Can I Get?

Well, luckily every type of regular dairy-based chocolate has a vegan equivalent. That’s right, even the milk chocolate.

There are also vegan chocolate bars that represent the bars that you had in childhood, including Milky Way, Mars Bar and even Coffee Crisp.

You can also get dark chocolate, which is not only very tasty, but also comes with plenty of nutritional benefits.

For example, dark chocolate is very high in antioxidants, which will help you to fight off illness.

Now that we’ve given you a little taster of what you can expect from the world of vegan chocolate, here’s a list of some of the best bars that you can get.

Best Vegan Chocolates

1. Go Max Go Chocolates

If you are looking for vegan chocolate with delicious caramel filling or a crunchy biscuit base, then we would recommend that you try Go Max Go chocolate bars.

They also do peanut butter cups that we reckon are better than Reese’s.

They also have tubular honeycomb vegan chocolate and so many more varieties of chocolate bars that we simply cannot count them all.

They are made from a delicious milk chocolate substitute that tastes just as good as the real thing.

2. Sjaak’s Chocolate

Next up, we have a range of vegan chocolate bars that once again come in plenty of options, whether it be caramel, biscuit, raspberry caramel, dark chocolate and peanut butter.

They even make Halloween candies, which is great if you want to dole out some vegan treats to your children during the spooky season.

The only downside of these chocolate bars is that they can be very expensive, which might not appeal to anyone looking to stick within their budget. You can also get white chocolate, which is very rare for vegans.

3. No Whey! Chocolates

If you want something that is not only free from dairy but free from 9 top allergens, then we would point you in the direction of No Whey! Chocolates.

If you are looking to reduce your dairy intake, then this is a great chocolate to choose from.

Also, because this chocolate is made from whey, it contains a large amount of protein, which is great for building muscle and keeping you in shape.

If you are a fitness freak, then you can’t go wrong with this calorie-light treat.

4. Enjoy Life Foods

Enjoy Life Foods

Okay, so we’ve slightly cheated with this one.

They do not cater specifically for vegans, but we thought that we would give them an honorable mention, seeing as they make food for lots of different dietary needs.

This chocolate is tasty and comes in a whole range of flavors.

Whether it is caramel, peanut butter, white chocolate or dark chocolate, there is something for all chocolate fans here. These bars are also gluten-free and contain absolutely no GMO products.

5. Lagustas Cafe

If you want your chocolate to be as good-looking as it is tasty, then you should certainly come to this store.

They make homemade hot chocolates as well as vegan chocolate bars that you can eat in their café or you can order at your home.

You can get bars, bonbons and cakes here. All of them are homemade and expertly gift-wrapped, which makes them a great option for gifting to someone during the holiday season.

We would personally recommend the sumptuous peanut butter chocolate.

6. Rose City Chocolatier

This next place does not do exclusively vegan chocolate, so you’ll have to read the product description carefully before you invest in a purchase.

This is a very elegant store that delivers chocolate boxes that are made to order.

They make nut clusters, caramel, peanut butter and chocolate-covered pretzels. This tray is simply amazing if you are looking for a gift to get that special someone.

You can even get 145 pieces of chocolate in one box, which is amazing value for money.

7. Missionary Chocolates

Now, if you are a fan of truffles, then you’ll want to make a b-line for this store. They do truffles that contain absolutely no dairy at all.

This company boasts that these chocolates are curated by doctors, which is one way to guarantee zero contamination.

You can have seasonal truffles, which are extremely limited edition.

This is also amazing for a left-field gift, as who gets truffles for Christmas? They also do vegan chocolate bars that include chocolate-covered cookies and chocolate-covered raisins (see more about vegan cookies here).

8. Green And Black’s Vegan Chocolate

Green and Black’s have garnered a reputation for making amazing dark chocolate and they specialize in a range of vegan options.

This includes some of the best dark mint chocolate we have ever tasted, smooth and bitter.

This uses only the most wholesome ingredients, with some bars that contain 70% cacao, which is very good for you.

This type of chocolate has medicinal benefits, including high levels of antioxidants, which are great for the immune system.

Conclusion

Vegan chocolate used to be very hard to find, but that is not the case any longer, as you can see from the list above.

This chocolate is no different from the kind you get in the store, and we can only assume the recipes will become further improved as time goes on.
