Vegan Cadbury Plant Bar

Cadbury’s vegan Plant Bar marks a milestone for the iconic chocolate brand.

Following the disappointing news that the brands accidentally vegan chocolate Bournville was no longer suitable for vegans, dairy-free chocolate lovers across the nation began to get impatient.

The new vegan certified chocolate bar is made with a blend of cocoa, almond paste, and rice extract, to deliver delicious chocolate, with a lusciously smooth texture.

Accompanying the announcement, Cadbury has issued a very British apology to all plant-based eaters across the country.

The apology reads: “Dear plant-based Britain, We’re sorry.

“Sorry, it’s taken this long. Sorry, it seemed like we weren’t listening. Sorry for not being able to respond to the rumours. And sorry for all the other chocolate you had to eat while you waited.”

Cadbury continued by explaining that it wanted its first vegan chocolate to be perfect.

“We’ve worked hard to add this delicious, dairy-free option to our iconic range”

In a statement made to Vegan Food & Living, Michael Moore, Marketing Manager at Cadbury, said: “We’re delighted to finally confirm that the rumours swirling around Cadbury Plant Bar are true!

“We’ve worked hard to add this delicious, dairy-free option to our iconic range, and we can only apologise for making our fans wait.”

With the rising demand for dairy-free chocolate, we hope that Cadbury’s latest launch will encourage everyone to give plant-based a try.
