Here, you can see the wide range of vegan chocolate bags and bars available from both supermarkets, local shops and online. Yes – vegan!

Most newsagents sell this range and Poundland, Poundstretcher, Home Bargains, Farmfoods, B & M, and Tesco. Tesco sells 4-bar packs of the original flavour.

“Almost all of our chocolate products contain milk in their ingredients. The exceptions are Bournville, Fry’s Chocolate Cream, Fry’s Peppermint Cream and Fry’s Orange Cream (which has now been delisted). However, these products are manufactured on the same production line as products which contain milk in their recipe and therefore there is a possibility of cross contamination.”

This orange one contains orange peel, so there is a chance it may not be vegan if the oranges were covered in shellac, although I understand it to be too costly for them to do this first as it is used to preserve the shelf life/shiny effect. Please contact Sainsbury’s if you wish to find out if it is free of Shellac.
