Many chocolate makers are visiting the Chocoa yearly,
just to show the people the products they sell
Many people from different countries together is a wonderful thing to see.
Especially when you see a natural product like the cacao bean becoming a wonderful product : Chocolate.
Eventhough many brands create chocolates with animal products like milk,
VHJ Online did some research about the quality, value and taste in the market of Vegan chocolate bars.
Chocolate itself comes from a plant, making it vegan,
yes, but in the process of going from the tree to the grocery store,
a variety of additives are added, includingsugar and milk or milk fat. A good quality chocolate, however, will have a higher chocolate content, pure ingredients, and no additives.
Here is a list with VEGAN CHOCOLATE BRANDS.
- Choceur Mint Chocolate Thins
- Choceur Mint Chocolate Waves
- Dairyfine Dark Chocolate and Mint Chocolate bars (vegan, despite the name!)
Cheap, cheerful and surprisingly good. The Mint Thins are way nicer than their more famous counterpart (which are no longer vegan)
2. Booja Booja
Independent shops or online, eg Viva!Shop – some of the best chocolate around whether you’re vegan or not. Not cheap but worth it!
3. Hotel Chocolat
Mini Hazelnut& Pistachio Bûche Dark & Nutty – a little chocky log of gorgeousness! But they also do pralines and much more…
Several delicious flavours suitable for vegans including a lovely white choc and an almond milk flavour. See Viva!Shop and other independents.
5. Jokerz, Buccaneer, Twilight and Mahlo Bars
Vegan equivalents of Snickers, Mars, Milky Way and Bounty! Viva!Shop and other independents

Yes, they’re vegan.
19. Hobnob Choc Chip
These are vegan but the chocolate- covered variety are not. Go figure… ( regular Hobnobs and other generic oat biscuits are invariably vegan)
20. Hot chocolate and cocoa
Aldi, Sainsbury's Fairtrade Drinking Chocolate, Tesco Traditional Drinking Chocolate are all vegan, as are Santo Domingo Drinking Chocolate. Or try a good quality cocoa such as Equal Exchange Fairtrade and just add sugar or agave syrup plus plant milk of your choice. Note – many hot chocolate brands contain milk powder, especially the sachets.
