Vegan Chocolate Bars and Bags

Here, you can see¬†the wide range of vegan chocolate bags and bars available from both supermarkets, local shops and online. Yes – vegan! And it’s not all dark chocolate – oh, no… You are in for a pleasant surprise. There’s ‘white’ dairy-free chocolate, mint, orange, champagne/rum/orange/delicious truffles, fruit & nut, boozy/liqueur chocs, and much more!

You’ll¬†also see companies included that are controversial but, as they produce¬†Vegan chocolate, we have decided (after much debate in some cases) to include them. Likewise, we have also included products which state ‘may contain milk’ notices which are there as an allergy warning, usually due to being manufactured or packed in a factory that also manufactures/packs product which contain milk.

Of course, people can and will still boycott certain companies if they choose. We’ve marked those that carry the Vegan Society logo, where known.

The Pernigotti tin below is also sold in M&S and costs £6 a tin.

Note – Dairyfine Dark Chocolate: Please check the ingredients at the time of shopping to make sure it does not contain milk. There may be a notice to say that it ‘may contain traces’. To confirm, there was no milk in the ingredients list when this picture was taken on 31 March 2016, or when we checked in another store on the 01 April 2016 but they do keep changing the recipe.

FRY’S

Most newsagents sell this range and Poundland, Poundstretcher, Home Bargains, Farmfoods, B & M, and Tesco. Tesco sells 4-bar packs of the original flavour.

Almost all of our chocolate products contain milk in their ingredients and therefore would not be lactose free. The exceptions are Bournville, Fry’s Chocolate Cream, Fry‚Äôs Peppermint Cream and Fry‚Äôs Orange Cream (which has now been delisted). However, these products are manufactured on the same production line as products which contain milk in their recipe and therefore there is a possibility of cross contamination.”

This orange one contains orange peel, so there is a chance it may not be vegan if the oranges were covered in shellac, although I understand it to be too costly for them to do this first as it is used to preserve the shelf life/shiny effect. Please contact Sainsbury’s if you wish to find out if it is free of Shellac.
