With chocolate bunnies, sugary chicks, and cream-filled eggs galore, Easter is a candy lover's dream, right up there with Valentine’s Day and Halloween. But, unlike those other holidays, no romantic entanglements or clever costumes are required to chow down on these cute critter-inspired confections.
Whether you’re trying to dial back your dairy consumption and dabble in plant-based alternatives, or are a years (or even decades!) long vegan, there are many opportunities this Easter to indulge in kinder, animal-free alternatives to traditional chocolate and candy classics.
This Easter, we put together an Easter Chocolate Bundle that features our classic Mylk and signature Chocolate Crunch bars, YumEarth Bunny Gummies, Jelly Bean Snack Packs, and a vegan fudge brownie from Greyston Bakery. Accompanied by a trio of recycled plastic Easter eggs, these cheerful chocolatey kits quickly flew off our virtual shelves and sold out!
But if you’re anything like us and always crushing on delicious dairy-free chocolate, you’re on the hunt for even more Easter treats. So, feed your sweet tooth and hop over to these eight additional vegan Easter bunny-approved candies and chocolates.
