Now, I’m no fully-fledged vegan. I know, a tad ironic considering this is a piece centered around vegan chocolate. But don’t come for me just yet, as I have recently discovered that I am, in fact, intolerant to dairy, which basically means I’m giving veganism a real go. And as part of my plan to give veganism a real go, I’m on the search for the best vegan chocolate bars out there. So, I've taken it upon myself to nibble my way through a parade of vegan-friendly chocolate bars in an attempt to save you guys the disappointment of buying one that’s, well – not very nice.
But seriously, I’m not just doing this for the sake of my hankering appetite for chocolate. I’m doing this because the market for vegan chocolate is booming. A comparison made by The Grocer sourced from a report by Nielson IQ, claims that between 2020 and 2022, “the value of the free-from chocolate category soared nearly 50% – from £37.6m to £55.2m.” And that’s not just because vegans now make up an estimated 600,000 in the UK, but because the likes of flexitarianism is on the up. That’s right, more and more of us are at least *attempting* a more balanced, plant-based lifestyle, with our diets at the forefront of what we’re changing up.
And with that, it only makes sense we turn out attention to the best vegan chocolate bars for 2023. From leading brands like Cadbury to independents like Ombar and HAPPi, here are 5 of our favourite vegan chocolate bars.
