The best vegan chocolate: bars, boxes and truffles

Dairy-free chocolate has never tasted so good.

best vegan chocolate brands

by Ellen Kinsey |

If you ask anyone what their favourite most indulgent snack is, it's more than likely they will answer chocolate. Sweet, silky, and melts in your mouth, this sweet treat never becomes old, and with so many flavours and brands, you will never run out of new chocolate to choose from.

Finding dairy-free chocolate was once a bit of a mission, with vegans having to settle for dark chocolate or a limited selection of plant-based options. However, those days have long gone. Now there is so much choice it can be a bit overwhelming when it comes to choosing a sweet snack - we never thought the day would come.

With many brands like Galaxy branching out and making vegan versions of their classic flavours, it has never been a better time to go plant-based.

With that in mind, we have put together our pick of the best vegan chocolate out there so you can satisfy your sweet tooth (and not be disappointed.)

The best vegan chocolate to satisfy your chocolate craving:
