At number 7 we have the Australian born Pana Chocolate. Regardless of the delicious chocolate, the packaging is delicate and beautiful, complimenting the organic qualities of the bar itself. Despite the raw and all natural ingredients, the chocolate is subtly sweet and not overpowering in flavour. The Sour Cherry & Vanilla bar is a favourite; the tangy cherry pieces compliment the smooth vanilla essence perfectly to create a delectable delight.

At number 6 we have Organica’s Coconut Delight bar aka the Vegan Bounty. The bar is made up of chewy and sweet coconut pieces topped with a chocolatey outer layer. The filling is of perfect sweetness; tropical yet creamy contrasting perfectly to the dark chocolate. If only these were available on supermarket shelves, nobody would know they were Vegan!


5. Seed and Bean Coconut and Raspberry Bar

Seed and Bean are at number 5 with their Coconut and Raspberry Bar. For a dark chocolate bar, this was as creamy and as subtle as milk chocolate. The raspberry pieces replicated that of popping candy, small bursts of sharp and sweet flavour with a hint of coconut to balance. The bar was neither sickly sweet or too rich and made from minimal organic ingredients.


4. ichoc White Vanilla Vegan Chocolate

Brand: ichoc White Vanilla Vegan Chocolate

Type: Dairy-free alternative

For: Vegans Who Miss Dairy Chocolate

Cocoa Content: Unknown

Packaging: Recyclable

At number 4 we have the incredibly decadent ichoc White Vanilla bar. The vanilla gives the chocolate a creamy and fuller flavour which enhances the taste and texture. Unlike many other Vegan chocolates, this bar does not substitute dairy products with sugar. Instead, the combination of raw cane sugar, cocoa butter and bourbon vanilla beans limits the sickly sweet taste you would experience with dairy chocolate and creates the perfect balance. If only you could find these in your local supermarket!


3. Ombar Acai & Blueberry Ecuadorian Raw Chocolate Bar

Brand: Ombar

Type: Organic & Raw

For: Vegans Who Like Fruity Chocolate

Cocoa Content: 60%

Packaging: Partly recyclable

At number 3 is the decadent Ombar flavoured with acai and blueberries. You would not believe that this little bar consists of 60% cacao as the taste is smooth and melt in the mouth delicious. The fruity flavours of the acai and blueberry filling oozes on the tongue and is perfectly satisfying considering the size of this tiny bar.


2. Lovechock Organic Raw Mulberry & Vanilla Chocolate 

Brand: Lovechock

Type: Organic & Raw

For: Raw Vegans With A Sweet Tooth

Cocoa Content: 81%

Allergens: Traces of nuts

Price: £1.99

Where To Buy: Planet Organic, independent health stores & online

Packaging: Recyclable

The penultimate contender in this top 10 is the organic & raw chocolate bars by Lovechock. Having first discovered these in Berlin, they have since remained one of my all time favourite sweet treats. With a wide variety of flavours to choose from, the Mulberry & Vanilla has to be the greatest. Despite the cacao content reaching over 80%  the bourbon vanilla makes the whole bar dreamy and subtly sweet. The mulberries add a fruity and tangy taste, rounding it off as a rich and creamy delight with dried quinoa added for an extra protein-crunch.


1.VEGO Hazelnut Chocolate Bar

Ingredients: Sugar, whole hazelnuts (20%), cocoa mass, hazelnut paste, cocoa butter, emulsifier: soy lecithin, vanilla extract

Packaging: Non-recyclable

At number 1 we have the queen of Vegan chocolate, the VEGO bar. She may not be the healthiest, lowest in calories nor contain the most superfood powders but she sure is the most delicious. It is as if Nutella, Galaxy and Ferrero Rocher had a child in a Vegan parallel universe and created this rich, creamy and decadent bar of dairy-free goodness. The whole hazelnut pieces give the bar a crunch whilst the chocolate melts on the tongue providing us with the upmost joy throughout the indulgent experience.

So there we have it folks, the top ten must try vegan chocolates.
