If you’ve longed for the taste of Hershey’s classic chocolate bars, then I recommend checking your local Target store now. The brand is making good on their “better-for-you” commitment to create plant-based products. Now through June 2022, they’re test marketing Hershey’s Oat Made, a dairy-free line meant to mimic their milk chocolate (with almonds) and special dark. But we’re hoping they become permanent selections.
Hershey’s Oat Made Chocolate Bars are on Target for Plant-Based Plans
Each vegan bar is infused with oat flour (a.k.a. oat milk without water) for a creamier Hershey’s style consistency. Word on the street is that they’re quite impressive, but be sure to leave your own unbiased rating and review below once you buy and try them!

What Others Are Saying ...
dark oat made is delicious!
I just wish I could still buy it! I only got to try the dark – it was excellent, but it’s been out of stock every time i’ve looked since December 2021.
Response from Go Dairy Free
Yes, unfortunately, it was “while supplies last.” Hopefully they make it permanent!
Delicious but the way they did the test run is absolutely horrendous. Only certain targets have them and most of the time they’re sold out. When they first came out like a year ago I was able to order a couple online it’s been over a year since they’ve been back in stock online. If you want one of these most people have to drive over an hour away just to find a Target that actually carries them. Absolutely ridiculous when you’re trying to do its trial run to see if they work, typically you would think they’d want the people at least be able to reach them and try it. Hope they become permanent and everywhere!
Where can you buy it?
We’ve looked everywhere but can’t find it – would love to try it! 🙂
Response from Go Dairy Free
They’re available exclusively at Target stores.
We tried the milk chocolate with almonds and it was so good! My daughters are dairy free and they absolutely loved these! I would say it’s the closest thing to milk chocolate that they’ve experienced yet and so creamy!
