I remember when I first became a vegan, and thought that I was banned and doomed from the world of chocolate forever not realizing that there are a ton of chocolate brands that are dairy free, safe, and even healthy to consume. The ingredients and the way chocolate is made matters as well, which is something not too many people consider, since we don’t often think of where our food is being made or where it’s coming from. If you’re looking for a dairy free chocolate brand because you’re a vegan it’s important to insure that the company, and the people producing the chocolate are not doing so under extreme conditions. Today I’m going to share my top 4 favorites with you. I’ve personally researched, and made sure that what I was investing and sharing with you was not in any way further damaging the environment, or my health. These chocolate bars are quality brands and companies that offer customers nothing but the best in taste and value. I’d love to hear which brand is your personal favorite!
