How to Choose Vegan Chocolate in the UK — Buying Guide

When perusing vegan chocolate, there's a few things to consider: flavour, nutritional info, additional dietary requirements, and ethical credentials. We'll run through each of these factors here!

Decide Between Dark, Milk, and White Chocolate — Each Has a Unique Flavour

Decide Between Dark, Milk, and White Chocolate — Each Has a Unique Flavour

Before thinking about anything else, you'll need to decide which type of chocolate you prefer, whether white, milk or dark. Each has a different flavour and level of sweetness, so it's a big decision if you're satisfying a particular craving!


As we mentioned earlier, dark chocolate is a staple for vegan chocoholics. It has a rich, intense flavour that's not too sickly sweet. Not only is it a tasty choice, but it's nutritious too — this kind of chocolate is full of antioxidants like flavanols, which can improve blood flow and neutralise free radicals.


If you want something creamier though, you should try a milk-style bar made with creamed coconut or a white chocolate bar containing vanilla extract. Both of these are much sweeter than dark chocolate though, so they're pretty indulgent!

Are You Looking For a Healthy Snack or an Indulgent Treat?

Vegan doesn't automatically equal healthy, and even dairy-free treats can be downright decadent! So it's important to check nutritional info like how much cocoa and sugar your chosen chocolate contains if you're trying to be healthy. If you're being indulgent it's still a good idea to choose something with organic ingredients for better quality chocolate.

Consider the Cocoa and Sugar Content For Chocolate That Is Perfectly Balanced in Both Taste and Nutrition

Consider the Cocoa and Sugar Content For Chocolate That Is Perfectly Balanced in Both Taste and Nutrition

The higher the cocoa content in a bar of chocolate, the more nutritious it is! A 100g bar with 70-85% cocoa contains more than half the recommended daily allowance (RDI) of iron and magnesium, plus almost the entire RDI of copper and manganese. Bars containing this much cocoa are also high in fibre and fatty acids.


However, a bar with a high cocoa content can taste bitter, so finding the right balance of cocoa and sugar is key. Bear in mind that the RDI for sugar is 30g a day — so choose chocolate with 25g or less per 100g for a healthier choice. Many vegan chocolates use coconut sugar or date syrup for added sweetness, which have a lower glycemic index but can still be high in calories.

Opt for Organic Ingredients for Pesticide-Free Cocoa and Better Quality Chocolate

Opt for Organic Ingredients for Pesticide-Free Cocoa and Better Quality Chocolate

Did you know that out of all the crops on the planet, conventionally-grown cocoa uses the most pesticide in its production? Studies have shown that consuming products that have been treated with even low doses of pesticides can cause a number of health issues. 


So if you'd prefer a bar of chocolate without synthetic nasties or GMOs, opt for one that contains organic ingredients. We firmly believe that it tastes better and generally has a higher quality — but we'll let you test that out for yourself!

Why Not Try a Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance Certified, or Locally Produced Confection?

Why Not Try a Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance Certified, or Locally Produced Confection?

When it comes to living and eating ethically, we're really spoilt for choice with vegan chocolate options. Fairtrade products, which pay cocoa producers a fair wage, are easy to find online — even on supermarket sites! Rainforest Alliance-certified chocolate is also a sustainable choice, ensuring the safety of cocoa farmers, and conserving local wildlife.


Some of the very best chocolate makers out there have taken their ethical credibility even further and have set up their own schemes which guarantee a higher price than Fairtrade for farmers and producers. The companies that do this usually have strong, visible relationships with producers, which they often proudly detail on their websites.


There are lots of artisanal vegan chocolates made in the UK these days too, which minimises transportation (i.e. pollution) and scores mega eco points! We think it's always a great idea to support small UK businesses and taste local British ingredients in your chocolate too!

Check That Your Chosen Chocolate Will Meet Any Other Dietary Requirements

Check That Your Chosen Chocolate Will Meet Any Other Dietary Requirements

Yet another great thing about vegan chocolate is that it tends to be reliably labelled when it comes to allergens. Since vegan brands are often designed to cater to other special dietary requirements, many bars will be suitable for those with coeliac disease or nut allergies too


To help you out, we'll mention in the specification table below each review whether a product is gluten-free, nut-free, or both so you can concentrate on which treat tickles your fancy!
