For anyone powering on with veganism since this Veganuary, or if you just want to try what’s out there vegan chocolate wise, this guide is for you. From a Lindor-like Ombar to Lindt vegan chocolate itself and Ritter Sport’s new vegan offering, we have you covered.
1 – Ombar Oat M’lk Salted Caramel Truffle
Launched last October, Salted Caramel Truffle is part of Ombar’s Oat M’lk range. Taste reviews during Veganuary included the accurate comment that it tasked just like Lindt Lindor – just as creamy but with none of the real milk. Instead it is made with oat milk and has less than half the carbon emissions of regular milk chocolate. I love all of the Ombar chocolate range but this is something really special.

2 – Smooth and Hazelnut Vegan Lindt Chocolate
Speaking of Lindt chocolate, the brand has just launched two new varieties in the UK. Swiss chocolatier Lindt & Sprungli has made this new range with gluten-free oats and almond paste. Good enough to rival the original, you can also get the smooth or hazelnut variety depending on your texture preference.

3 – Ritter Sport Vegan Chocolate
Brand new this year, Ritter Sport has launched a vegan chocolate bar. I used to love dairy Ritter Sport chocolate before I was vegan so I was very keen to try this out and it did not disappoint. Full of creaminess and nuttiness with almond paste instead of milk, you still get the classic Ritter Sport slab with thick chunks of chocolate delight. This is currently on trial in the UK so get your hands on a bar in case they aren’t around for long.
