Opinion The best dairy-free chocolates in Australia for Easter 2024


Author: Jacqueline Published: March 21, 2024

Whether you’re about to enjoy your first dairy-free Easter or your 21st, the vegan market in Australia has made incredible gains on store shelves this year, ensuring you’re spoilt for all the luxuriously smooth and creamy choice you can handle – and then some!

When it comes to eating chocolate, I like to think of myself as a seasoned veteran. I’ve spent over a decade watching the vegan Easter ranges in stores progress in both quality and quantity, and this year … boy, oh boy, oh boy! Shelves across Australia are literally choc-full of offerings – pun intended. There are so many options that for the first time in my life, I can’t possibly try them all in one holiday period – which, if you ask me, is a great problem to have!

If you’re looking to treat yourselves and loved ones this Easter, get out your pen and paper (or prepare to take screenshots), because this will be one doozy of a shopping list!

Choosing dairy-free is one of the kindest choices you can make for cows, but this Easter, you can extend that kindness even further with one of these beautifully curated gift packs from Animals Australia. (That’s right, a shameless plug for our own org, because we think it’s a gorgeous little pack!) Aside from being deliciously cruelty-free, all proceeds go directly towards our team’s vital work to create a kinder world for all animals. And isn’t that really the sweetest gift of all?

One final Easter tip

For those celebrating Greek Easter and wishing to keep things plant-based, I come bearing good news! The Greek Orthodox tradition of dyeing and smashing hard-boiled eggs need not be abandoned, just slightly amended with one small sub…

Simply pick up a bag of potatoes and boil them whole, leaving the skin on. Once they’re cool and you can pat them dry, get out your food dye and a paint brush, and get to work. The best thing about this version is – post-smashing, you can simply combine potato pieces, mash with some plant-based butter, and create your own rainbow creamy potato mash! It’s kind to chickens, cheaper than eggs, and a deliciously colourful addition to your Easter lunch spread.

But wait, there’s more!

As mentioned earlier, there are so many vegan offerings on shelves this year that even I – the self-proclaimed ‘Augustus Gloop of vegan chocolates’ – cannot try them all. This list is in no way exhaustive, so check out your local stores to see what’s available. A great starting point is Vegan Perfection but be warned: viewing this page is likely to induce drooling, which can only be treated by snacking on such quality Easter treats. So, y’know … it’s kinda like a medical emergency. That’s all the justification you need to go forth and treat yo’self! (you’re very welcome 😉 )

Chocolate aside, vegan hot cross buns are on the shelves too, at major supermarkets, bakery chains and independent grocers – so keep an eye out for those treats, and let’s celebrate all there is to indulge in, on this super sweet holiday.

Happy Easter, chickens!
