Note: Packaging and ingredients can change over time, so please DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING, and let us know if you spot any changes or errors. We include products that state ‘may contain milk/egg’, i.e. they are at risk of cross-contamination during the manufacturing process. This is simply an allergy warning, but these products cannot be marked vegan by law. They are however, generally considered suitable for vegans. To help keep this resource going, Vegan Womble would receive a small commission if you were to purchase products via any affiliate links in this post.

Product information and photos are submitted by the Vegan Womble community – you are our eyes and ears. We will keep adding products as they come in, so please keep sending us your vegan discoveries.

Here, you can see the wide range of vegan chocolate bags and bars available from both supermarkets, local shops and online. Yes – vegan! And it’s not all dark chocolate – oh, no… You are in for a pleasant surprise. There’s ‘white’ dairy-free chocolate, mint, orange, champagne, rum, orange, delicious truffles, fruit & nut, boozy/liqueur chocs, and much more!

FRY’S

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.
