The Dilemma: Finding Vegan Easter Candy!
The winter of 2018 was brutal. Even though snow is still on the ground and I’m wearing a winter coat, it’s officially spring and time for Easter. My vegan daughter needs an Easter basket, so my search to find vegan Easter candy begins.
I googled Vegan Easter Candy and found a lot of very nice and expensive on-line stores where I could order candy. But I didn’t want to pay for last-minute shipping and the prices were so high I’d have to mortgage my house to buy enough candy to fill three baskets.
I decided to hop over to Walmart to see what was available. Surprisingly, I found quite a large selection but there were no vegan chocolate Easter candies and what’s Easter without a chocolate bunny?
I was pleased to find individually wrapped candies to put inside Easter eggs for the egg hunt. Unfortunately the only chocolate candy I found was Junior Mints. Finally, I discovered a vegan bunny at Stop&Shop. Most stores have the milk chocolate bunnies but they aren’t vegan. The only vegan one I could find was the dark chocolate.
To make your life a little easier, I’ve compiled a list of grocery store vegan candy for your vegan
