“These vegan chocolates are very special because they mark the very first line of vegan chocolates at Purdys,” said Rachel McKinley, Purdys master chocolate maker. “When I first started thinking about how to create these vegan chocolates, I first had to figure out which dairy-free alternatives could measure up to our customers’ favorite non-vegan Purdys chocolates and the standards they expect. we. The result is a range of delicious vegan chocolates that can be enjoyed by everyone, including those who still consume dairy products. “
Purdys vegan chocolate bars are available on the company’s website for $ 4 each or $ 14 for an assortment of six bars.
