Cadbury releases its first vegan milk chocolate bar

The classic version of Cadbury’s iconic dairy milk chocolate now has its vegan twin.

Finally, the vegan version of Cadbury’s iconic Dairy Milk chocolate bar has come to us.

The British confectioner announced that its first vegan chocolate bar, called Cadbury Plant Bars, will be available from Sainsbury’s starting in November. The company is targeting not only vegan consumers but also vegetarians and flexitarians in the UK.

Finally, the vegan version of Cadbury’s iconic Dairy Milk chocolate bar has come to us.

“With 500,000 participants in this year’s Veganuary—double the number of participants from the year before—the increasing public appetite for varied snacking options and plant-based alternatives has never been more apparent,” said Louise Stigant, the Managing Director of Mondelez UK, Cadbury’s parent company since 2010.

The new launching will give consumers two vegan options to choose: Smooth Chocolate and Salted Caramel, and both replace the “glass and a half” of dairy milk in the original with almond paste for “delicious smooth chocolate” with a “hint of nuttiness.”

Cadbury is also launching 100 percent plant-based packaging for the bars, made using International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) certified and renewable plastics. The company is currently developing recycled soft plastic packaging for traditional Dairy Milk.

In 2020 rumors started swirling about this new bar Cadbury was to launch. “We’re always listening to our consumers,” said a Mondelez spokesperson at the time. “So we can develop and provide people with greater choice.”

It was reported at the time that Mondelez planned an initial launch for January 2021, in order to tie in with this year’s Veganuary campaign. However, it was forced to delay as the company “grappled with finding a dairy substitute which is also suitable for consumers with nut allergies.”

This launch comes after two years of research and recipe developments and Cadbury fans couldn’t be happier about it. With the new Plant Bars, Cadbury appears to have compromised on finding a nut-free version in order to create an authentic, dairy-style flavor using almonds.
