Its always been fairly easy finding vegan dark chocolate bars. But finding delicious and vegan chocolate candy has always been a challenge. But thanks to the popularity of veganism.

Why Can’t Vegans Eat Chocolate?
That creamy sweetness we all remember eating our first bag of milk chocolates candy. Has traditionally been credited to dairy milk’s and sugar. Milk chocolate is a solid chocolate confectionery containing cocoa, sugar and milk hence not vegan friendly.
Is Milk Chocolate Healthy?
Dark chocolate offers anti-inflammatory effects, is a source of antioxidants. The types of flavanols present in dark chocolate have been shown to reduce risk factors associated with insulin resistance.
Unfortunately, milk chocolate doesn't pack the same antioxidant punch as dark chocolate. However, milk chocolate does contain good for you polyphenols.
