If you’re a long-time vegan, you’ll know just how far chocolate and fudge alternatives have come since their earlier forays into the world of dairy-free.
Today, we are not only spoilt for choice with the sheer volume available, but the quality of these products makes them serious competitors for their dairy counterparts.
It makes the glow up of these treats even sweeter for those who had to patiently await their various stages of improvement and availability.
If you’re a new vegan – you’ve come at the perfect time!
With veganism growing year on year, there has been a constant stream of amazing plant-based replacements joining the market (as well as our long list of Vegan Trademark certified treats).
As a natural result of this growth, many of these products are becoming more and more affordable.
Whether you need a rich chocolate sauce for your bakes, fancy truffles for someone special, vegan fudge to bring back from your staycation, or just to indulge yourself with a classic bar of chocolate, you won’t have to search long or far to find them.
And your worries about leaving those dairy counterparts you once loved behind? You can forget about it.
We’re here to show you that vegan substitutes for milk laden chocolates and fudge are not only kinder, often healthier, and more planet-friendly choices, but completely delicious and accessible too!
All of these vegan treats are registered with the Vegan Trademark, so you know they are free of animal ingredients and have not been tested on animals.
We’d love to see your all-time favourite Vegan Trademarked chocolates and fudge! Follow us on Instagram and Twitter and be sure to tag @vegantrademark in your finds.
