Easter is around the corner! A bane for many vegans around this time of year is whether things like the Easter eggs and hot cross buns are okay to eat. If we are truly honest, it’s all about the chocolate. So allow me to hook you up with a few suggestions.
If you’re not lucky enough to have a Veganz Store near you then here’s a list of a few choccies to keep you soothed. Especially after 40 long days of sacrifice. (Veganz, just so you know is a 100% Vegan Supermarket; I only just learnt about them!...maybe I’m falling behind with how much we are developing).

Available at; BoojaBooja.com, Ocado, Holland & Barrett
I tried to throw in a few “milk” chocolates because I know some of you gag at the very idea of consuming, what I call; delicious, decadent dark chocolate. Check in your local supermarkets at the free from sections especially in the larger ones as the aisle capacity has grown so have our options - about time!
Let us know your favourites on our social media (Twitter & Facebook) and enjoy the chocolate induced comas!
