Vegan Easter candy round-up! »
Hey pals! Easter is coming up! How about a vegan Easter round-up? Don’t mind if I do!
"Speckles" Chocolate Rice Crispy Bunny and Flavored Solid Vegan Eggs from Allison’s Gourmet. This bun is too cute! And I love crispies in my chocolate. These chocolates are also gluten-free and made with fair-trade cocoa.
White Rabbit Ostara Hare Easter Bunny Vegan White Chocolate from Realist Mermaid on Etsy. These are also gluten-free! Who likes white chocolate? Not me! But I know some people do and this actually sounds really good. It’s flavored with organic Tahitian vanilla bean. Yum!
Vegan Easter assortment from No Whey Candies on Etsy! This collection looks AHMAYZING.
And don’t forget your vegan creme eggs from Queen Balch! You know we love vegan creme eggs up in this piece.
Look at this little guy! This Sjaak’s chocolate bunny is filled with almond butter! My mom loves her some almond butter. And this is great for kids with peanut allergies! A special treat. And you know Sjaak’s uses fair-trade and organic ingredients.
For those not that into chocolate (you crazy bastards), Vegan Essentials has these cute sugar chicks and bunnies!
Vegan large Easter bunny girl from Chocolate Decadence! Such a pretty lady! This 12” chocolate statue stands up. Good lord! That’s a big bunny.

Vegan Easter candy-palooza! »
At my house, Jesus didn’t have much of a presence during Easter. But candy did! We always did the little hunt with our Easter baskets and whatnot. To bring back that nostalgia for you Easter-celebrators, here’s some vegan Easter candy!
Rose City Chocolates has a ton of Easter stuff and it’s all totally adorbs. Except that big bunny in the middle keeps undressing me with his eyes. Goddamn buck-toothed perv.
PETA put together this nice basket of goodies. The work is all done for you! Lazy bones.
A chocolate basket straight from Sjaak’s! What a coincidence, that’s my favorite kind of basket! Plus, it’s organic and fair-trade. Holler at your ethics! Most of their other vegan Easter stuff is sold out so don’t procrastinate.
From Chocolate Decadence. This link wasn’t working for me today but hopefully it will be up later. Because those eggs are three inches of pure vegan yum! Ew, that sounds gross, Megan.
From Sweet Earth Chocolates. The dark chocolate caramel are vegan. They have little vegan chocolate bunnies too! Plus they are also organic and fair trade. That makes it taste better!
From NOWheyCandies on Etsy. Isn’t this guy cute? I just want to eat him up! And I could! Because it’s chocolate! This one is also gluten-free for our gluten-free pals. Congrats!
I was inspired to make this list by Bay Area Bites and Happy Vegan; they both made vegan Easter candy lists so def check those out. And there’s always Laura’s vegan creme egg taste-off and all of our Easter posts where we talk about shiz like delicious vegan peeps! I was also inspired by chocolate and my main man Jesus.
Valentine’s Day chocolates for that special vegan! »
Hey beautiful people! Valentine’s Day looms over us with its promises of loneliness and emotional torture! JK, unlike Miss Lonelyhearts over here, you probably have a special someone to share the day with, hmmm? Or maybe you’ve had your eye on a sexy someone, hmmm? What better way to say, “I want to tap that!” or, “I still like tapping that!” than with a nice box of vegan Valentine’s chocolates?! Let the round-up begin!
Chocolatier Sjaak’s brings us this totally adorbs limited-edition box of vegan truffles for Valentine’s Day! I WANT IT, if only for the box. You have plenty of time to order a box for your sweetie before February 14, so get on that! If you have no sweetie, order the truffles anyway and eat them while watching whatever Lifetime movie marathon I’m sure will descend upon us come the big day. You can buy them from Sjaak’s or they have them at ye old Cosmo’s Vegan Shoppe too. I WANT THEM BUY THEM FOR ME.
From Chocolate Decadence, we have this voluptuous double heart chocolate box of chocolates! A CHOCOLATE box filled with CHOCOLATES! What can’t science do? Don’t worry, they also have a “world’s best lover” chocolate bar.
Now we take it old school with this red velvet box from Sweet Earth Chocolates. Take note that they have regular chocolate and vegan chocolate so make sure you select the right option during purchase. I love an nice velvet box of chocolates. So kitsch!
Lastly, I can’t explain this amazing picture but tell me a tuxedo box of chocolates doesn’t rule! Thanks, Rose City Chocolates! Also, get a new camera. But for real, check out that carnation! This box dominates. Oh, oh, and it’s velvet too! Once again, thanks Science!
OK, modern lovers! Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
