Accidentally Vegan Chocolate
Accidentally Vegan Snacking Chocolate
- barkTHINS Dark Chocolate (Almonds with Sea Salt) – barkTHINS come in a few different flavors but the dark chocolate with almonds is one of my favorites with little bits of almonds that provide the perfect crunch and nuttiness to the robust and rich chocolate. If you like snacking chocolate and the thin, crispness of these barkTHINS, you may also like the other vegan barkTHINS including the Dark Chocolate with Pretzels for a salty zing, Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seeds, or get the Dark Chocolate Variety Pack so you can try a bit of everything!
2. Hu Vegan Chocolate Bars | 4 Pack Vanilla Quinoa Crispy Chocolate – These are some of my favorite vegan snacking chocolates – just try to have a couple squares at once- I dare you! The crispy quinoa and creamy vanilla mix perfectly with the strong dark chocolate and while this flavor is my personal favorite, you can’t go wrong with any of them. If you haven’t heard of these bars, you’re missing out and with 830+ reviews on Amazon, I know I’m not alone in my love affair with these vegan snacking chocolate bars from Hu.
If you like the salty and sweet combination with a bit of a crunch, these vegan chocolate covered pretzels are a real treat! Made without dairy, you can snack happy!
UNREAL is another vegan snack company that I think creates some truly exceptional vegan snack products. I like the dark chocolate peanut butter cups and peanut gems the most but I truly enjoy having their variety pack on hand to set out when we have guests over or to stash in that work drawer for chocolate cravings midafternoon (and none of my coworkers even realize they are vegan!). In the variety pack, you’ll find 1 bag of each: Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Crispy Quinoa Peanut Butter Cups, Almond Butter Cups, Peanut Gems, Crispy Quinoa Gems and Coconut Bars and can be a great way to try out the vegan snacking chocolate.
De Villiers is another vegan chocolate that is truly for the chocolate lover with 70% dark chocolate, each bar is silky and smooth but packs a significant chocolate punch. I like the variety in the assorted pack that I can pick and choose depending on my mood and flavor preference of the day. With high quality vegan ingredients, you can’t go wrong.
Decadent Vegan Chocolate Treats
With only 2 ingredients, these truffles from That’s it taste way more decadent than you would expect. The clean and simple ingredients make them a dietitian favorite and definitely worth adding to your stash when you want a decadent vegan chocolate treat.
