My Favorite Chocolates

With Easter and Mothers Day quickly approaching, I want to share with you which vegan chocolates I think are the most mouth-watering delicious!

Amore di Mona has insane caramel. They also make versions of caramel with fruit inside like cherries, which are also so fantastic. Their dark chocolate is really good but I preferred their caramel. Their chocolate is Fair Trade, organic, and uses raw agave nectar.

ChocAlive has delicious truffles. They are all good but I’d have to say my favorite is the pistachio flavor. ChocAlive is raw, vegan, gluten-free, and organic.

Chocolate Inspirations is so good its nuts. They have a whole section of vegan chocolates and brittles. The Artisan Italian Orange Bar and Artisan Organic Hummingbird Nectar Tea Bar are both crazy yum.  Cinnamon Toast Toffee to cashew brittle to Peanut Butter Pillows, are they kidding me??? The English toffee is absolutely scrumptious as well.

Concious Chocolate makes the best raw chocolate I have ever had. It is creamy, soft, and extremely tasty. The company is organic, gluten free, and raw.

Nicobella Organics is dangerously good. The yummiest truffle flavor I have tried is the Walnut Flaxseed, but they are all so good! Nicobella uses Fair Trade and Organic ingredients.

Sweet and Sara makes super cute vegan goodies for Easter occasions. They have vegan marshmallow peeps and bunny shaped chocolate. Apart from the festive goods, I love the Chocolate Biscotti and Cinnamon Hazelnut is very good too.. Oh my goodness they are tasty… Also, their Peanut Butter Smore and Peppermint Bark Vanilla (might be just for xmas but) are SO good.

Updates summer 2016: I tried these recently and had to give a chocolate update!

Dear Coco is delicious and their bars are so artistic and beautiful looking! If you have a party they would be fun to layout just since they look so pretty. I really like their toffee chocolate bars, Sidama, Shanghai, and Oaxaca flavors. Dear Coco uses Fair Trade dark chocolate and non-GMO vegan butter.

The Great Unbaked chocolate truffles are really good! I love the heatwave, mochaccino, orange sunshine, and nibs dark flavors. You can build your own 8-piece box so it makes a fun gift. All chocolates are mostly raw with no refined sugars, flours, or gmos!

Lagusta’s Luscious turtle bar is fun! If you’re a snickers fan, it’s basically three snickers in one. Super heavy and yum! They also make this maple honeycomb bar that I love! If you’re familiar with the British candy bar “Crunchie Bar”, it’s very similar except vegan of course, with maple syrup and no honey! Added bonus, they’re both made of Fair Trade, organic, and non-GMO ingredients.

Mindful Delights has a yummy peanut butter cup. Plus, it’s Fair Trade, organic, and gluten free!

Further updates from spring 2017!

Nohmad Hazelnut and Sea Salt is really good and there’s no cane sugar! They use organic maple sugar instead.

Tony’s Chocolonely Dark Almond Sea Salt is great. The packaging looks so cool.

Chocolate Hollow has several fun and tasty fair trade flavors; hazelnut, macadamia sea salt, schmilk truffle, dark, maple, orange, and mint.

Overall my three favorite go to chocolates (so hard to pick just three!!) include: Nicobella Organics, Amore di Mona, Chocolate Inspirations and Lagusta’s Luscious maple honeycomb bar.

I am always on the look out for out-of-this-world yum vegan chocolate. Leave me a comment below with your must-try favorites!

    I second the Lagusta recommendation – we do the same, drive 1.5 hours to get to her shop! They ain’t cheap, but you are paying for quality and I have had no chocolate – vegan or not – that compares to hers.

    Dear Coco Chocolate which is in the Washington, D.C. area. Their chocolates are like nothing you’ve ever had before in around the world flavors which are so unique. The Toffee Chocolate Bar line is vegan but the truffles are vegetarian or “beegan” as they call them as they contain honey. I drive down from Baltimore to get them and pick up gifts at the same time as my friends are always so surprised and happy to taste their one of a kind toffee chocolate bars. My absolute favorite flavors are the Istanbul which tastes like chocolate-covered baklava and the Madras which is infused with sweet curry- both are amazing. You won’t be disappointed!

    forgot to mention that Dear Coco is gluten free too, for anyone that needs that. They work out of a dedicated GF kitchen.
