Ombar started out making small 35g Ombars and quickly found success. Their novelty is that Ombar use coconut sugar as a sweetener, rather than refined sugar. They also only use raw cacao!
They have a sweet taste, though it is different to what you might expect when comparing to dairy milk chocolate, or even other vegan chocolate bars. I personally think the best Ombar is Coco Mylk – the original version, as I find the others too sweet. The variety of flavours is appealing though if you love a variety of flavours in your vegan chocolate!
- Blueberry & Acai
- Coco Dark
- Coco Mylk
- Coconut & Vanilla Centre
- Cranberry & Mandarin
- Dark 72%
- Goji Berry
- Lemon & Green Tea
- Pure 90%
- Raspberry & Coconut Centre
- Strawberry Mylk
Vego’s full size chocolate bars are one of the most amazing vegan chocolate experiences you can give to someone. Think Toblerone for vegans… It’s one enormous bar – 150g – made up of enormous chunks. There really is nothing more satisfying than chowing down on a Vego bar when you just want to stuff your face with some chocolatey goodness!
For the more dainty, Vego is available in a 65g size… that’s still pretty sizeable compared to some of the 20g snacks on this page… or how about Vegolinos! Vegolinos are Vego’s vegan pralines. They’re bitesize and soooooo tasty!
Plamil So Free
Plamil have had a huge revamp in the last few years. They were one of the first to make dairy free chocolate, before it was in vogue. Vegan chocolate was first something that appeared only in health food shops, and Plamil were there. Over time though, their packaging did not stand out enough. So here we are; they launched a new brand called ‘So Free’!
Flavours (70g) include:
- 87% Extra Dark
- 72% Perfectly Dark Chocolate
- 67% Dark Chocolate Sweetened with Coconut Blossom Sugar
- 60% Orange Dark Chocolate
- 60% Intense Mint Dark Chocolate
- 48% White Chocolate Alternative
- 45% Milk Chocolate Alternative
All of the above are organic!
Lovechock are one of the only raw vegan chocolates on this page. There is a dense texture to these bars with a good bite, and you just know they are packed with goodness as well as indulgence. Lovechock go in for a mature taste using flavours such as pineapple, mulberries, maca, figs, chilli and vanilla, as well as others. As well as their handy 40g bars, you can also buy 70g bars of Lovechock.
Flavours (70g) include:
- Sweet Nibs Raw Chocolate Bar
- Almond Raw Chocolate Bar

Choices make two things brilliantly: vegan caramel chocolates and vegan chocolate buttons. I first got these in a Christmas selection box from my aunt. They’re great for gift bags, party favours, and stocking fillers. They’re also a perfect sized mid-afternoon snack for your chocolate craving.

- White chocolate

Ananda’s Round Up!
Remember Wagon Wheel’s? Ananda’s have created vegan Wagon Wheels in the form of the delicious Round Up! These are something really special. A classy combination of chocolate, marshmallow, biscuit and filling make these a sumptuous dairy free and vegan treat. I first found them stocked by Ms Cupcake in Brixton, London! The original contains strawberry jam but they have a variety of flavours:
- Mint Me
- Orange E-Tang
- Let’s Celebrate! – Marc de Champagne fondant
- Easter (Honeycomb)
A timeless classic. Cadbury Bournville is the dark chocolate alternative to Dairy milk, and who knew it was completely dairy free! Bournville is one of the most reliable and cost effective vegan chocolates to buy when baking. It’s sweeter than other vegan dark chocolate bars when eaten on its own.
Willie’s Cacao is crafted, designed and delivered with a luxury look. The chocolate is perfectly square, and so smooth you can almost see your face in it. Willie’s Cacao make many types of chocolate, including white and milk chocolate (not dairy free/vegan). For vegan chocolate choices, focus on their dark range. The intrigue is a broad range of bars, each made with cacao from different regions and sources. So each one has a unique flavour. You’ll love these if you love dark chocolate!
