Vegans and the dairy intolerant rejoice: Lindt is set to release a line of vegan chocolates made with oat milk this year. To make it even better, the chocolates will come in more environmentally friendly packaging. This is what you need to know.
Lindt To Release Line of Vegan Sustainable Chocolates
Lindt is one of the world’s leading chocolate brands known especially for their truffles with the creamy, soft center. The company also has a line of chocolate bars. Until now, they have been inaccessible to vegans and those looking to avoid dairy.
Now they have created a line of chocolate bars that will at first come in three flavors (1):
- Salted Caramel
The initial launch will be in Germany in November and will cost €2.99 (3.55 USD) per 100g bar. Fingers crossed that the new bars will make their way around the world not long after. (1)
On top of choosing oat milk, one of the most environmentally-friendly options for milk alternatives, the company is also changing up the packaging from their traditional bars. The chocolate will be wrapped in entirely recycled materials to help lessen the company’s environmental impact. (1)
Other Vegan Chocolate Bars
Lindt is not the first company to jump on the vegan chocolate bandwagon. As the demand for dairy-free chocolate increases around the world, plenty of major chocolate brands are creating products for this market:
- Mars Bar released three vegan versions of their classic bar in the UK last year. (1)
- Rumour has it that Mondalez, who owns Cadbury, is working on a vegan version of their Dairy Milk bar. (1)
We say that the more companies that want to make vegan and environmentally friendly-versions of their chocolate and candy bars the better. Bravo, Lindt!
