Are Maltesers Suitable For Vegans?

So it’s time for your afternoon pick-me-up and you’re craving Maltesers. You must be wondering if they’re suitable for vegans. Keep reading to find out. 


Maltesers are produced by Mars (yes, that Mars) and have been on the UK market since 1937 and have often been marketed as a ‘lighter’ way to enjoy chocolate. They’re small spherical treats with a malted milk centre coated in milk chocolate for anyone unfamiliar with them

Are Maltesers vegan? 

No, unfortunately, Maltesers aren’t suitable for vegans as they contain milk. 

Is this a favourite chocolate of yours from pre-vegan days? If so you’re probably as ready as we are to see Mars veganise this treat.
