Following its initial reveal in June, Vegan Terry's Chocolate Orange bar is finally available in supermarkets across the country
Chocolatiers behind the iconic Terry’s Chocolate Orange have debuted its first vegan chocolate bar.
The Terry’s Chocolate Orange Plant-Based Bar is a dairy-free version of the brand’s legendary orange-flavoured chocolate.
Made with rice syrup, hazelnuts, and its signature real orange oil, the vegan chocolate bar is certified by the Vegan Trademark.
Taking to social media to reveal its latest product, Terry’s explained that they have been working hard to perfect its new dairy-free recipe to ensure the new Chocolate Orange Plant-Bar captures the same authentic taste as its dairy counterpart.
Although Terry’s new chocolate product doesn’t come in the traditional spherical orange shape, the bar includes impressed segment shapes that can be broken off piece by piece.
The new bar comes in cardboard and foil packaging making it 100% recyclable.
The vegan Terry’s Chocolate Orange bar is now available from Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Nisa, and other selected convenience stores for £2.50 (RRP).
Vegan chocolate bars from dairy chocolate giants
With more people than ever ditching dairy and turning to plant-based alternatives, big-name chocolate brands are having to introduce dairy-free products to their repertoire.
Joining Terry’s, chocolate giants such as Mars, Cadbury, and Nestlé have all launched their own vegan chocolate products in recent years. Most recently, Nestlé announced the return of its vegan KitKat following its disappearance from supermarket shelves shortly after its initial launch.
The recent product launches from these brands have split the vegan and plant-based communities. People argue that despite launching plant-based products, ethical vegans should not buy from these companies as ultimately the money will support the brand’s work with dairy industries.
On the other hand, others argue that increasing demand for these products will force businesses to increase their dairy-free and vegan products.
Additionally, it can create greater choices for shoppers. Some suggest that non-vegan shoppers may be more enticed to try plant-based products if it is made by a brand they recognise.
Overall, both arguments continue to leave people unconvinced.
