We were pleasantly surprised by the full range of Purdy’s Vegan Chocolate Bars released last year, and weren’t expecting more dairy-free items from them so soon. But their chocolatiers have remained busy, drawing inspiration from the warmer climates of North America to create this indulgent line of Purdy’s Vegan Chocolates. It includes layered Sweet Georgia Browns and smoky Hawaiian Black Salt Caramels, in both dark and dairy-free mylk chocolate.
Purdy’s Vegan Chocolates Treat Fans to Inspired Dairy-Free Caramels
The caramel in each variety of Purdy’s vegan chocolates is cooked in a big copper kettle for a golden color, chewy texture, and rich depth in flavor. Once you buy and try these, let us know what you think by leaving your own unbiased rating and review below!

More Allergen Notes

These sweet Georgia browns are so delicious! How wonderful to find this excellent product as a person that is dairy-intolerant!
They’ve really nailed it with these chocolates. The caramel is very rich and chewy, the salt offers complexity, and the chocolate is very smooth and delicious. We loved both the milk and dark varieties.
As a vegan – these are a wonderful addition to the market! All of the chocolates are divine but the caramels are over the top – I’ve tasted nothing like them ever before
