Is there such a thing? I know there is vegan semi sweet chips but those are bitter

hmm not that I know of. choc chips used to all be vegan, but I think the reason the cheap brands add milk now is to save a few pennies. I usually buy Ghiradelli or Guittard, both taste great to me.

There are rice milk chocolate bars that taste similar to milk chocolate but I'm not sure if they come in chip form. If nothing else, you could keep an eye out for the rice milk chocolate bars and roughly chop them up yourself. I'm a-ok with the semi-sweet when I bake though.

You can probably order rice milk chocolate chips online from somewhere. They will probably be relatively expensive. But what I would probably do is find a dark chocolate candy bar that tastes good and chop that up. The sweet Chocolate Dream bar would be good, or try some other dark chocolate that has a lower percentage of cocoa, like 45-55%.

Plamil chocolate bars always taste very milk choc to me--you could get one and roughly chop it and make choc chunks.

you can get vegan 'milk' chocolate buttons at pretty much any supermarket/healthfood store in the UK, not chips but buttons.. <a href="http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-local/frameset/detail/520183_Humdinger_Dairy_Free_Buttons_25g.html" target="_blank">'milk chocolate'</a> or <a href="http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-local/frameset/detail/520249_Humdinger_Dairy_Free_White_Chocolate_Buttons_25g.html" target="_blank">'white' chocolate</a>. Some supermarkets (Asda, maybe Sainsburys) even have their own brands.<br><br>
Maybe that's not much use, bout, y'know, I tried ;-)

Things like chocolate chip cookies are traditionally made with semi-sweet chips. There's so much sugar in the dough you don't want to go overboard with the chips. When I stopped using dairy, I started to like darker and darker chocolates whereas I was always a milk chocolate person before. Now I adore dark chocolate and think milk would be way too sweet. It may just take some adjusting, which doesn't really answer your question, but will maybe give you hope that they won't always seem bitter!

Do you have a Trader Joes near where you live? Their chocolate chips are vegan and they delicious! Seriously, I wouldn't have been able to tell they're vegan if I wasn't told/ didn't look at the ingredients. They taste just like the real things.<br><br>
ETA: Nevermind, I forgot, they're semi-sweet! But they're so good!

I was thinking about this - I totally agree. You might not like semi-sweet right out of the bag, but I would give them a try in cookies or whatever you like to bake. I think most baked goods need the stronger flavor of semi-sweet rather than milk chocolate.

No trader joes here. I made muffins with vegan chips and they were bitter and didn't seem to melt. I bought a pineapple/orange/flax/dark chocolate bar today so I will just chop that up. It's not as bad as I thought

yes! They exist. I got some in my Secret Santa package. I'm not at home so I can't tell you the brand right now, but I'll get back to you.
