In need of a sweet treat? Get your chocolate fix with our pick of the best vegan chocolate bars in the UK...

Let’s be honest, who can resist a square or two (or three) of deliciously creamy vegan chocolate bars? We certainly can’t!

Thankfully, we’re spoilt for choice these days with a wide selection of tasty plant-based chocolate at our fingertips.

In fact, the UK has dominated the vegan chocolate market with 1 in 5 chocolate launches being suitable for vegans in 20211.

We know it can be hard to choose from all of the enticing packaging and unique flavours, that’s why we’ve done the hard part and rounded up our top 10 vegan chocolate bars in the UK…

1. NOMO

Nomo launches three new vegan chocolate creations

Like many vegans, we just can’t get enough of NOMO’s vegan chocolates.

Since launching in 2019, the vegan chocolate brand has quickly become a staple for UK vegans thanks to its irresistible taste and flavours.

NOMO lives by its ethos of ‘no missing out’ and ensures everyone can enjoy delicious chocolate that’s free of allergens.

They even have vegan chocolate lollies for kids!

You find NOMO in most UK supermarkets and online.

2. LoveRaw

LoveRaw vegan chocolate wafer bars

LoveRaw has become renowned in the vegan confectionary world for its innovative products.

One of the brand’s most iconic plant-based delights has to be its Wafer Bars… think Bueno bars but vegan! These near-identical Bueno dupes are taking the vegan chocolate world by storm and are now available in three different varieties, including a vegan white chocolate bar.

In addition, LoveRaw offers a selection of Choc Bars and Butter Cups.

You can order Love Raw online as well as stockists such as Asda, Ocado, and The Vegan Kind Supermarket.

3. Ombar

Ombar Oat M'lk Chocolate range

We first discovered Ombar Oat M’lk whilst recording the chocolate special on our Simply Vegan podcast, and haven’t looked back since!

Made from oat milk, the vegan chocolate range is one of the creamiest dairy-free chocolates in the UK.

Moreover, Ombar offers a wide selection of classic flavours that keeps us going back for more – our favourite is Fruit & Nut and the tempting Salted Caramel bar!

You can find these tasty bars on Omabr’s website, at Waitrose, and in selected independent food stores.

4. Vego

Vego chocolate hamper

Vego has taken the dairy-free chocolate world by storm and was there for those craving a plant-based sugar rush when no one else was.

Its chunky bars packed with whole hazelnuts are simply iconic thanks to their supremely creamy, melt-in-the-mouth texture.

Since launching in 2010, the German brand has expanded its vegan chocolate range to include a range of tasty vegan chocolates such as Vego chocolate spread, pralines, and even vegan white chocolate.

You can find Vego in most at most health stores, Asda, Co-op, and The Vegan Kind Supermarket.

5. Rhythm 108

Rhythm 108 dark cocoa orange bar

We love Rhythm 108 and its wide selection of plant-based goodies.

This Switzerland-based vegan chocolate brand has become popular thanks to its deliciously hand-crafted organic products.

Rhythm 108’s vegan chocolates are palm-oil free and contain less sugar than typically chocolate bars. Not that you’d be able to tell because they taste truly decadent!

While we struggled to pick a favourite, we think the brand’s Dark Cocoa Orange bar is just heavenly!

You can find Rhythm 108’s vegan chocolates in Boots, Asda, and many more supermarkets and independent stores nationwide.

6. Moo Free

Moo-Free minis

Moo Free has been a go-to of ours whenever we’re in the mood for a quick chocolate kick.

Its tasty chocolate is perfect for children and big children alike, and its packaging features the sweetest animal illustrations.

Moo Free’s aim is to ensure everyone is able to enjoy a chocolaty treat without sacrificing great taste, and we certainly think they’ve achieved that.

You can find Moo Free in most UK supermarkets.

7. HiP

HiP vegan chocolate bars

New kids on the block HiP have certainly made a splash with their tantalising range of vegan chocolate bar flavours.

Made from oat milk, its vegan chocolates are superbly creamy and completely free from dairy and gluten.

Although HiP launched in 2021, the founder is no stranger to chocolate. In fact, James Cadbury is actually the great-great-great grandson of John Cadbury himself!

It’s hard for us to choose just one favourite flavour from HiP with fabulous flavours such as Salted Honeycomb and Cookies No Cream on offer. But if you ask us, that’s just a great excuse to try them all to be sure!

You can find HiP’s vegan chocolates online via the brand’s website, as well as at independent retailers in the UK. 

8. Hotel Chocolat

Hotel Chocolat vegan selection box

We all deserve to treat sometimes, and Hotel Chocolat’s Unbelievably Vegan box is certainly a treat.

This selection of chocolate goodies is made using the brand’s iconic Nutmilk chocolate to create a creamy taste like no other.

Enjoy classic flavours such as Raspberry & Nutmilk truffles, and Crunch Peanut Butter.

Hotel Chocolat’s Unbelievably Vegan box is available online or in stores for £13.50.

9. Cadbury Plant Bar

The plant bar features in two delicious flavours

Following its highly anticipated debut last year, Cadbury’s Plant Bar range has received impressive reviews.

The brands first vegan-friendly launch features two delicious flavours, Smooth Chocolate and Salted Caramel.

Although some people have criticised the chocolate brand for the hefty price of its dairy-free chocolate, we think it is great to have an iconic brand such as Cadbury giving its dedicated customers an option to try something new.

Cadbury’s Plant Bar is available at most major UK supermarkets.
