Lindt chocolate might be beyond words, but it isn’t beyond reach. Their premium bars and truffles can be found at major grocers throughout the USA, Canada, and Europe. Which is what makes their latest release so exciting for dairy-free and vegan consumers. This Swiss born chocolatier has become the first to mass market non-dairy “milk” chocolate bars. Lindt OatMilk Chocolate Bars are now in U.S. stores nationwide, and are crafted with a smooth, creamy recipe.
Lindt Makes OatMilk Chocolate Mainstream with Creamy Dairy-Free Bars
In the U.S., Lindt OatMilk Chocolate Bars are sold in both a smooth and creamy Classic Recipe, and a Salted Caramel variety that’s dotted with crunchy salted caramel pieces. But use caution if you don’t eat wheat. Both USA varieties of Lindt OatMilk Chocolate Bars state “gluten free oats” on the packaging, but the Salted Caramel contains a small amount of wheat in the glucose syrup. In Canada, all varieties appear to be made without wheat, but as always, verify!
Classic Recipe (similar to Smooth in the UK and Original in Canada)
Ingredients: sugar, oat milk powder (oat milk, maltodextrin), cocoa butter, almond paste, chocolate, soy lecithin (emulsifier), natural flavors. manufactured on equipment that also processes products containing milk and other tree nuts.

UK / Canada Varieties
In the UK and Canada, Lindt also offers “oat drink” and “oat based” chocolate bars, respectively. The base recipe appears to be very similar to the Lindt OatMilk Chocolate Bars in the U.S., but those countries also have a Hazelnut variety, which is dotted with crunchy hazelnut pieces. And as noted above, the vegan Salted Caramel bars outside of the U.S. appear to be made without wheat.

Dairy free…with caramel? Sign me up!
It’s creamy and has the nice, mellow milk chocolate flavor that I thought I had lost forever when I was diagnosed with a dairy allergy. Having just a milk chocolate bar option made me happy, but to discover that the salted caramel was also dairy free has me rejoicing. I really hope Lindt comes up with some more flavors in this line.
My new favorite chocolate bar
My local store ran out recently. I hope they get a new shipment in soon. Or maybe best they don’t… I was buying these way too often.
I have been waiting my entire life for a good milk chocolate bar and these do not disappoint. Every bite is yummy and it melts so well. I like to pair the oatmilk and the salted caramel one alternating bites. yum
Thank you Lindt!
I found this at Stop & Shop the other day and I was so excited as I am lactose intolerant and need to be careful with dairy. I feel like I have a piece of my life back now that I can have this milk chocolate that is so creamy and delicious made with oat milk! Thank you from the bottom of my ❤️! Lindt is winning, keep up the good work!
Thank you 🙏 So much appreciated!! You are a life saver
My little daughter whom loves chocolate so much but she has a dairy allergy… She had always eat Lindt 70% dark chocolate and she loves it !! Until Lindt mad chocolate bar with Oatmilk !! My little 7 year old girl loves this chocolate bar soo much !! She loves the fact that it melts so smoothly in her mouth and she can actually make s’mores like any other children !! Thank you so much !!!! I wish I can actually thank the actual person in the Lindt company who came up with this idea!!!
My wife bought me this chocolate bar have tried it it tastes great and s’mores and it’s like they’ve never changed the texture of the chocolate candy and you can tell that it’s anything different and it has not bothered me or made me sick from it.
FINALLY, a great vegan chocolate bar
So excited to finally have a vegan chocolate bar that tastes great, is uber smooth, and can be found at a regular store instead of just specialties.
I'll stick with the dark chocolate
I have been impressed with some of the dairy-free milk chocolates, but oat milk chocolate just isn’t doing it for me so far. Lindt oat milk is very smooth (unlike some other oatmilk chocolate brands), but it has a consistency that seems oddly thick and almost a little pasty. The flavor is very sweet, with an oat aftertaste and really doesn’t taste as chocolaty as I would hope. My husband liked it slightly better, because he has a serious sweet tooth, but he also wavered between 2 and 3 stars.
