Last year, Galaxy launched a vegan chocolate range. And now, its arch nemesis Cadbury, has stepped up to give those Galaxy guys a run for their money.

According to The Telegraph, Cadbury is currently working on a vegan version of its iconic Dairy Milk bar.

But what the hell will it be called? The words ‘dairy’ and ‘milk’ are both quite non-vegan…

Mondelez, which owns Cadbury, as well as Toblerone and Philadelphia, is working on the product now, but it’s been delayed as they try to figure out a milk alternative that’s suitable for those with nut allergies.

But the plan is to have it out by January 2021, in line with Veganuary.

A Mondelez spokesperson said: “We’re always listening to our consumers so we can develop and provide people with greater choice.

“This includes looking at a plant-based Cadbury Dairy Milk bar.

“However, we have no immediate plans to launch.

“We are only interested in launching a new vegan product that retains the texture and taste that our consumers expect and love.”

Until then, those following a plant-based diet might want to give Galaxy’s vegan offerings a go.

Back in November, Mars, which makes Galaxy, revealed that it had not one. Not two. But THREE dairy-free flavours up its sleeve for its vegan chocolate bars: Caramelised Hazelnut, Caramel & Sea Salt and Smooth Orange.

The bars have been certified by the Vegan Society, and are available from Tesco, Ocado and Amazon. They cost around £3 for a 100g bar.

As well as the bars being animal-friendly, the packaging is also eco-friendly as its made from a compostable film packaging and wood fibre that can be composted at home. This is a first for Mars in its UK product range.
