Amy’s Organic Candy Bars: Vegan Versions


Amy’s Kitchen has made the leap into sugary treats with a line of organic candy bars, known as Andy’s Dandy Candy (Amy’s father!). Most varieties do contain dairy, but a couple are not only dairy-free, they’re even kosher pareve!

Amy's Organic Candy Bars - Vegan Versions (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free Dreamy & Sunny)

I had a preview taste of the Dreamy Bar at a natural food show earlier this year, and was quite impressed. So when I spotted Amy’s organic candy bars on sale locally (we paid less than $2 a bar, which I thought was worth it), I had to pick up the vegan varieties to review.

Tasting Notes for Amy’s Organic Candy Bars:

First, the similarities. Both varieties come with two mini bars per package, which I just love. One for now, one for later. One for me, one for Tony. It all works out. They’re perfect little 100 calorie portions that do satisfy even the most voracious sweet tooth. Each bar is perfectly coated in chocolate that’s just a touch darker than semi-sweet. I thought the chocolate to filling ratio was pretty spot on – not too thick, but not so thin that any filling is peaking out. The bars also taste surprisingly “fresh”. Some bars, sweet or snack, are good, but taste packaged. These had a “just made” vibe about them.

Now, for the differences in these two vegan organic candy bars:

The Dreamy Bar

Described as Chocolate Creamy Nougat Covered in Dark Chocolate. The egg-free center is definitely not nougat, but it has a caramel meets nougat vibe in both flavor and texture. It’s got a lighter mouth-feel than caramel and a slight malted flavor that is oh so sweet, but not really chocolaty. Speaking of sweet, these are a straight up sugary dessert. There is no getting around it. If you’re a strict health nut, move on.

The Sunny

Described as Coconut & Roasted Almonds Covered in Dark Chocolate. It’s still a true candy bar, but a little less sweet than the Dreamy bar. It has a perfectly sweet, chewy coconut filling with chunks and slivers of almonds throughout. It might remind you of a Mounds or Bounty bar in some ways, but it’s better, I promise. As long as these organic candy bars are available, you won’t to worry about those “missing out” feelings.
