A Vegan Valentine Chocolates gift is the perfect choice for someone who loves chocolate, but follows a strict diet.
Are you wondering what it means to be vegan? Basically, veganism is term given to the practice by those who choose not to eat anything that contains animal or dairy product.
So, basically vegan chocolate would be pretty high quality chocolate without any dairy products included.
I don't think you'd have to worry much about other sources of animal product, unless you decided to try chocolate covered bacon or something! :)
Anyway, vegan chocolate is really fantastic because it is generally and naturally of higher quality. Why? It doesn't have any of the additives that can be found in lesser quality chocolates.
Truly vegan chocolate candy will only have cocoa, cocoa butter, lecithin, sugar and sometimes vanilla. Of course, other ingredients can be added, like fruit, nuts, and coconut for different varieties and flavors, but no dairy or animal by-products.
You don't have to follow a vegan diet in order to enjoy vegan chocolate. In fact, you may have inadvertently already indulged yourself without even realizing it. Have you ever had Chocolove Dark Chocolate and Orange Peel? How about, Trader Joe's chocolate chips, or Green & Black's Organic dark chocolate?
Those are just a few examples of every day chocolate that just happens to be vegan friendly (even though it's not marketed for that purpose).
Here are some beautiful choices if you want to treat someone you love to some Valentine Vegan Chocolate. I hope they love it!
