    I've never heard 'decent' 'vegan' and 'chocolate' used in the same sentence before....

    I waited in for a week for my delivery of vegan chocolates (think it was booja booja) . Expected a massive box to arrive...it was pushed through the letterbox ...only measured 4" x 3" :lol:
    I also got a vegan selection box from Aldi , much cheaper and apparently tasted really nice.Was going to buy some more yesterday but couldn't see them in the store anymore.

    How about;
    'Almost all normal chocolate out there is not without it's typical dairy industry animal cruelty, any decent person would and should for the well being of the animal go vegan...
    ...there's plenty of decent vegan chocolate out there, just go looksee and try!'

    Any good?

    I got a tad wound up when was deciding to go Vegan thinking I would have to forgo chocolate in the future, have since been pleasantly surprised to find a lot of 60+% coco chocolate, contains no animal products; check ingredients. If it says "may' contain milk, it's because it's made in a factory where milk is used, and they have to say it for legal reasons. Well that's what I've heard! Plenty of respectively good priced stuff our there In all main supermarkets. Fill your boots, but check the ingredients in the label! ;)

    Aldi have a selection of chocolate; check the ingredients list just to make sure, but most of the 'dark chocolate' containing over 60% co-co is vegan, including 100g FIn Carre bars, they in red packaging, and priced at 39p! Its amongst the most like 'ordinary/commercial/conventional' chocolate that I have tasted, so if that is what floats your boat give it a dry. Personally buy some Fin Carre as well, cos at that price it would be rude not to, and the fact they are Fairtrade makes them even better! ;) :pig:

    Did I say 'Aldi'? :eek:

    Was looking for a replacement for the Aldi dark chocolate that used to be dairy free, that no longer seems to be available, and has been replaced by a dark chocolate a few weeks ago containing.........-

    MILK.... :eek:

    and where did I get it from.......LIDL! :lolsmash:

    Apologies for any confusion! ;)

    Found a 'Divine' plain chocolate egg that appears to be Vegan in Oxfam if anyone is celebrating Easter - I don't know anyone who is to be fair! And also Lidl have a plain chocolate vegan Easter egg......
