Is Cadbury’s Hot Chocolate Vegan?

Picture this: it’s a cold Sunday and you’ve braved the outside world for a bone-chilling walk. You feel great but need something to warm you back up. Can you reach for a Cadbury’s hot chocolate if you’re vegan? 

Cadbury’s hot chocolate 

There are big players in the Cadbury’s hot chocolate game: Original and Bournville. One is smooth and creamy and the second is dark and rich, but are either vegan-friendly?

Is Cadbury’s hot chocolate suitable for vegans? 

Yes, both of these hot chocolate powders from Cadbury’s are suitable for you if you’re on a plant-based diet. There is a ‘may contain milk’ warning on their packs just like other Bournville products. However, neither drink contains milk, milk-derived or other non-vegan ingredients.
So whilst they’re not vegan-certified, this is a good enough sign for many people who are plant-based. Did someone say #AccidentallyVegan? 

What milk to use in a vegan hot chocolate? 

We love barista-style oat milk, hazelnut milk or cashew milk (if you want it to be extra creamy), but whatever you do, go for an unsweetened option so you don’t throw off the sweetness levels.
