So, I decided to go vegan from vegetarian yesterday, and I am very very happy with my decision, BUT how do I get vegan chocolate? Do they make vegan chocolate thats not dark? Or would that just not make sense.

I've heard of rice milk chocolate or somesuch? But never actually seen it.<br><br><br><br>
Your best bet is to find a good dark chocolate that you like <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

All chocolate starts vegan being the fruit from a tree. If you are talking about chocolate milk like chocolate, just get the bitter-sweet powder, mix it with soy milk or rice milk and add sweetner. I am a fan of Green & Black, so I will talk about that. Green & Black and others produce excellent chocolates. I believe vegan. They are more expensive than vending machine chocolates, but the bars are huge! They are also non-exploitive. Here is info from a place that sells other Vegan products:<br><br><a href="http://www.veganessentials.com/catalog/green--blacks-organic-extra-dark-chocolate.htm" target="_blank">http://www.veganessentials.com/catal...-chocolate.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
Green & Black is available at Target, Wild Oats, and various other natural/organic places (whe have them here at the regular market).<br><br><br><br>
I believe when you go Vegan, you have to adjust your taste somewhat and learn to love foods other than you are used to. This is really great chocolate. When I am in the mood for chocolate, I never get the cheap stuff any more.

If you don't like dark chocolate I recommend Lindt Bittersweet:<br><br><a href="http://www.lindtusa.com/shop_barkits-zoompop.cfm?PID=984" target="_blank">http://www.lindtusa.com/shop_barkits...op.cfm?PID=984</a><br><br>
It's vegan but still has the mouthfeel of milk chocolate. It's slightly more bitter than milk, but it's soooo much better than Hersheys. You can usually find this chocolate at a chain grocerystore like Safeway. They even sell Lindt at Target, Walmart, and Walgreens.<br><br>
HTH,<br><br>

You can look for dairy-free chocolate with more sugar -- it won't be as bitter as regular dark chocolate. I use President's Choice chocolate chips, which are dairy-free but fairly sweet.

Thanks for all the great suggestions. I've had Green & Black and thought it was awesome but I'd like to find other options as well.

I second the ricemilk bar suggestion.<br><br><br><br>
I just tried <a href="http://www.mondomundi.com/shop.php?moredets=171" target="_blank">this</a> one this past weekend though, and I think it's become my new favorite.
