The Best Vegan Easter Candy for Your Basket
From classic chocolate bunnies and cream-filled eggs to fruity jelly beans, this article covers the hottest treats of the season.
Spring has officially sprung, which means it’s time to load up on Easter candy! Even if you don’t celebrate the holiday or participate in Easter egg hunts, who’s to say you can’t partake in the sweets? Without further ado, here’s a list of the best vegan Easter candy for your basket.
Every holiday is sweeter with Sjaak’s—and Easter is no exception! Whether you’re a fan of classic smooth chocolate, want a little crunch in your bite, or prefer chocolate gushing with vegan caramel, coconut lime cream, or peanut butter, this vegan brand has it all! In festive shapes and packaging, these vegan chocolates will be the highlight of your Easter.
Wow everyone at the Easter egg hunt with No Whey’s drool-worthy vegan chocolate bunnies, eggs, lollipops, and truffles! Whatever you do, order the Mini Cream Veggs. They taste just like the iconic Cadbury Cream Eggs—without any animal products. Another hot item is the “Noah Whey” Milkless Chocolate Bunny, which was just released this year.
If you’re more of a fruity candy person, YumEarth has everything you need to fill your basket! From Gummy Fruits, Lollipops, and Jelly Beans to Giggles (which are a better-for-you rendition of Skittles), there’s no shortage of toothsome treats to try this season. Pro tip: Order the Easter Variety Box for a little taste of everything.
This vegan bakery has all sorts of adorable vegan treats to sink your teeth into this Easter. Their most popular pick has to be the Easter Cream Eggs, hand-filled with a decadent cream center and a yellow “yolk.” Other cute selections include the Easter Bunny Hearts, Peanut Butter Eggs, and Holiday Cake Pops.
The cute speckled Chocolate Easter Eggs from Dwarf Stars give us all of the best Easter vibes—with a delicious taste! The exterior is made from strawberries and cream vegan white chocolate with a luscious organic pumpkin seed butter filling. They’re vegan and free from gluten, soy, peanuts, palm oil, and artificial preservatives.
While not technically “candy,” vegan macarons are the perfect spring treat! In celebration of Easter, Verón is offering three limited-edition flavors—Robin’s Egg, Strawberry Sprinkle, and Carrot Cake. In eye-catching pastel colors with decadent ingredients like vegan caramel and jam, these confections check off all the boxes for the ideal festive dessert.
We can all agree that one of the best aspects of holidays is the candy dish, and Lake Champlain Chocolates has us hopping for joy over their vegan options! The Oat Milk Bunny, Dark Chocolate Carrot, and Salted Caramel Flowers are definitely at the top of our list.
The Extra Thick Vegan Egg from Hotel Chocolat is the ultimate Easter find! It’s made up of a huge nut milk-based chocolate egg with vegan truffles, pralines, and caramels inside. Crack it open and experience the magic! The Dark Chocolate Big City Easter Bunny, Dark Chocolate Splat Easter Egg, Dark Chocolate City Easter Bunnies, and Unbelievably Vegan Easter Bunny Selector are all vegan as well.
The classic chocolate Easter bunny has gotten a nutritious makeover! ChocZero’s Dark Chocolate Keto Easter Bunny is handmade by real chocolatiers using vegan dark chocolate that’s free from gluten, soy, and sugar. Featuring top-notch ingredients, this treat leaves you feeling good about sharing with friends and family.
If you aren’t able to order candy from a fully vegan business this year, Whole Foods’ Organic Dark Chocolate Bunny is a great alternative. There are only three ingredients used—all of which are organic, non-GMO, fair trade, and vegan.
Surprisingly enough, this mainstream chocolate brand has a few accidentally vegan treats! This year, their Dark Chocolate Bunny fits the bill for vegan-friendly. So if you’re looking for a last-minute treat to put in your basket, Lindt is your brand!
