Made with cocoa, almond paste, and rice extract, this chocolate is dairy-free
Cadbury just introduced its first-ever vegan bar. The new treat launches in the UK; the company has not yet revealed if it will be introduced in other countries as well.
There are two flavors of Cadbury Plant Bars: smooth chocolate and smooth chocolate with salted caramel bits. A mixture of cacao, almond paste, and rice extract is used to make both options.
‘Sorry it’s taken this long’ The company, founded 197 years ago, acknowledged that it was late in introducing vegan chocolate.
“Dear plant-based Britain, we’re sorry. Sorry it’s taken this long,” The announcement from Cadbury stated. “Sorry it seemed like we weren’t listening to your calls, sorry for not being able to respond to the rumours. And sorry for all the other chocolate you’ve had to eat while you wait.” “We hope you’ll agree it was worth the wait,” the company added.
The sentiment was echoed by Michael Moore, Marketing Manager at Cadbury. “We’re delighted to finally confirm that the rumors swirling around Cadbury Plant Bar are true! We’ve worked hard to add this delicious, dairy- free option to our iconic range, and we can only apologise for making our fans wait,” Moore said in a statement. “Ensuring we deliver against our commitment to exceptional flavour has taken quite some time, but as of November, the wait is over.”
