If you have read some of my previous posts, you probably know by now that I am a chocolate lover and have been so since I was a little girl. I remember coming home from school, dropping off my school bag and immediately heading over to the snack cupboard to grab a piece of chocolate. I was addicted to it. 🙂 In that time I wasn’t vegan yet and chocolate brands that are vegan were hard to find.
Not all dark, bitter chocolate is dairy free …
So, when I finally became vegan, the inability to get chocolate was for me a bit of a sacrifice, even though there was of course the option of buying dark, dairy-free chocolate, but for some strange reason, when I decided to go vegan most stores offered only milk chocolate, and the few dark chocolate bars had whey or some other dairy derivatives in them …
So, to solve my dilemma I learned how to make my own chocolate pralines and they were so good that some friends and colleagues asked me to make them for them.
Flash forward a few years and we see more vegan food brands debut on the market, and well-known chocolate brands produce vegan versions of their products. Vegan companies also created their own vegan chocolates, and so now there are plenty of options.
Let’s look at some finger licking good chocolate bars and pralines 🙂
Vegan Chocolate Brands
1. Endangered Species
Most of their products are vegan with 15 vegan varieties. I especially love this one, not only because they offer excellent flavors, but also because they donate 10% of their profits to wildlife conservation and they have fair trade. In brief, with every chocolate bar you buy you are chipping in a little to help endangered species. Another plus point is that they are not expensive.

2. VGAN Chocolates
This brand is not only vegan, but also gluten free, paleo, and non-GMO. Some of them are also kosher. VGAN chocolates come in the following flavors: 85% cocoa dark chocolate, almonds and salty caramel, vegan mylk chocolate, hazelnut and mulberry crunch; and if you’d like to indulge in all of them, they also offer a variety pack.
3. The Good Chocolate
Vegan, keto friendly, zero sugar, low glycemic index, the lowest calorie chocolate, and doesn’t promote tooth decay. And it still tastes good! The Good Chocolate allows you to indulge without worrying about sugar.
4. Hu Chocolate
These are also fair trade, natural organic vegan, gluten free, paleo, and non-GMO. It’s made from organic, house-ground cacao and it has a rich cocoa flavor with subtle caramel notes.
5. Delafaille Premium Belgian Chocolate Gift Box
When talking about chocolate, it would be a crime to leave out Belgian chocolate. Although the Swiss seem to be more famous for their excellent chocolates, Belgium holds a well-deserved nr. 1 in the world.
The Delafaille gift box is vegan and certified kosher. It includes mouthwatering flavors such as smooth caramel ganache, delicate coffee flavored ganache, raspberry flavored chocolate cream covered in Belgian dark chocolate (I am salivating as I write this), and last but not least, smooth dark chocolate. With this gift box you can’t go wrong!
There are many chocolate brands, but these five are the most known and – in truth – also my favorites. Except for The Good Chocolate, I’ve tried them all and I regularly buy an Endangered Species chocolate bar. All of them are delicious!
It is wonderful to see how many thousands of vegan products are on the market nowadays, and I do not only mean chocolate. There is a plethora available of vegan foods in these times, apt for everyone of us and able to please different taste buds and/or culinary or dietary expectations.
There are even many vegan products that are also gluten free, paleo, kosher, or all three of them at the same time. Coming up with a reason for not going vegan seems to become harder and harder, right? 😉
I hope you will indulge in some of these chocolates. I am definitely going to get me a Delafaille chocolate gift box.

Hey Christine! I enjoyed going through this, Thanks for sharing. Although I am not a Vegan, I think its good news to see more and more products for Vegans. + I do not have to be a Vegan to try out those good looking chocolate right? I can almost tell the Delafaille gift box would taste great, definitely would give it a try.
I would love to share this with people, you never know who may find it helpful
Feel free to try them out 🙂 I’m sure that you will love them!
Thank you for your comment 🙂
I’m vegetarian but I love chocolate of all kinds, especially dark chocolate! I think this vegan chocolate apparently more healthy than the normal one.
Sometimes ago I was on a raw – food diet and I tried to cook a vegan cake, but not all the ingredients were available. Now it is going much easy for vegan people and it is very nice that there are such a variety of vegan products on the market.
I enjoyed reading your post and discovered new chocolate for me! Thanks for sharing!
Nowadays more products are available and it is indeed much easier to find certain ingredients. I love the variety of vegan products on the market!
Great that you discovered some new chocolate for you to try out 🙂
Thank you for your comment!
While I’m not a Vegan, I’m a chocolate lover and never knew there were so many choices of Vegan chocolate. I appreciate that you pointed out several good options, and I’ll take your word that they’re delicious!
I hope you give them a try 🙂
Thanks for your comment!
I am really happy I found your site. I am vegan and have been avoiding chocolate because of the fact that I am vegan and cannot find the best chocolate for vegan as I have had limited choices.
Thank you for giving me so many options. I will bookmark your page.
That’s wonderful! Enjoy the chocolates 🙂
And thank you for bookmarking my site!
Years ago I used to think that those who went vegan are missing out a lot.. Recently I’ve been committed to a sustainable lifestyle of the 3Rs and for me it also includes reducing food wastes too.
I’m not fully vegan yet. I still love my meat but if I’m perfectly fine with vegan food, in fact I’m starting to like them a lot. It’s only a matter of time, I guess!
Vegan food, as you mentioned, have really come a long way. Seeing how it’s more readily available in supermarkets now and even in Amazon, we know that it’s becoming a lifestyle.
I might just try endangered species chocolate too. Thanks for recommending!
It is great that so many vegan products are available now. Have you tried Beyond Meat? They have a great taste and have fooled many meateaters into thinking they were eating meat 😉
These chocolates are divine! I’m glad you’re going to try Endangered Species 🙂
Haha Christine:) you are right, it’s difficult to not embrace vegan food when you have good options like this!
I’m not a fan of dark chocolate though – just tastes bitter to me. I guess my taste buds have never matured lol. It’s the same reason I don’t do black coffee.
Seems to me that the Good Chocolate is a non-dark chocolate in your list, right?
That said, I really like how some of these options are fair trade chocolate,, help with conservation etc. I will be noting these for future gift ideas.
Thanks for another informative vegan piece.
Fair trade is always an incentive for me to buy a product, especially when it comes to chocolate. 🙂 If you don’t like dark chocolate so much, there are also vegan versions of mylk chocolate available.
Thank you for your comment!
Thanks for this great article sharing vegan chocolate, now vegan can have some treat without worrying too much. The chocolate package design very well makes them look more delicious, and it makes my mouth start watering…
It’s also wonderful that some vegan food is gluten-free, paleo, and kosher, which could meet most people’s needs. For example, VGAN chocolate! 85% cocoa dark chocolate, almonds, salty caramel, vegan milk chocolate, hazelnut, and mulberry crunch! Seriously? I must get it before bed tonight! Thanks for sharing this information with me; I do think you provide great value today. 🙂
The combinations of flavors are mouthwatering, aren’t they? 😉 Enjoy your chocolate!
Interesting article – i clicked your website a few days ago and pleased to say I’m well on track with Veganuary! Luckily I’m not much of a chocolate lover but I’ve passed this article onto my brother in law who is doing Veganuary with me as he is a big chocoholic! Another great addition to your site and like you rightly say – it’s great to see so many vegan products now on the market.
That’s great, Rick! Best of luck with Veganuary! 🙂
I could not pass without leaving a comment on this article! I LOVE chocolates, and Belgian chocolates are my absolute favorite! I get several boxes of different varieties over the holiday period. I always console myself with the thought that they are after all dark chocolates, and the doctor does say they are good for you! Ha!Ha!Ha!
This parade of vegan chocolates look equally as delectable and of course you have a box of Delafaille Belgian chocolates for me to try out. I do hope they are slightly lower in calories than my regulars.
Thanks for the recommendations.
So, you know good chocolate 🙂 I’m pretty sure that you will love the Delafaille chocolates!
Thanks for your comment!
