Half the fun of the holiday season is the festive flavors; everyone loves a peppermint mocha or a gingerbread cookie. Luckily, plant-based eaters are no longer excluded from this seasonal culinary celebration. Lots of companies have introduced vegan holiday products that are just as fun (and delicious) as the old stand-bys.
Here are four of our favorites:
Peppermint Bark Bar
Premium Chocolatiers (aka No Whey Chocolate) offers a variety of tasty treats, from M&M-like candies to milkless chocolate bars. This time of year, their Peppermint Bark Bar combines two ever-popular goodies: candy canes and chocolate. They have lots of other seasonal selections, too, from chocolate Santa pops to candy cane pretzels to truffle collections, and more. Check the company’s website for store locations, or you can order online.
‘Tis the Season Popps
For any eater who misses Moose Munch or those massive tins of flavored popcorn, Earth Balance makes a dark chocolate and cinnamon coated popcorn — perfect for holiday snacking. Use the store finder on the Earth Balance website to find products near you.
Peppermint Star Bars
Made by the aptly-named So Delicious, these frozen treats are light, creamy, and full of peppermint sweetness. Be warned: it’s easy to eat an entire box, solo. You can snag the bars at select Whole Foods.
Califia Farms’ annual addition to their dairy-free lineup is the holiday season in a cup. Made with almond milk, nutmeg, and not-too-much sugar, it’s a must for Christmas morning. Find it at a Whole Foods near you.
