Last week, confectionary company Mars announced the launch of its first vegan Galaxy chocolate bar.

The brand is the first in the UK to create a vegan version of its much-loved chocolate.

Rather than simply launching one variety, three different 100g bars were revealed: Caramel and Sea Salt, Smooth Orange and Caramelised Hazelnut.

The bars, which cost £3, went on sale today at Tesco - and are available both online and in-store. The perfect stocking filler for the vegan in your life.

Galaxy fans have been shared their delight at the release of the confectionary on social media, with one fan posting ‘Happy Vegan Galaxy release day’.

Another fan claimed he was unable to sleep ahead of the launch.

A few eager fans even managed to get their hands on the chocolate bar ahead of the release and are already singing its praises.

One customer said “the vegan galaxy chocolate is amazing”, meanwhile another who tried two flavours rated a “10/10 for both”.

The vegan Galaxy launch comes a few weeks after Selfridges opened the UK’s largest vegan chocolate counter in its brand new confectionary hall.

Vegan diets are becoming increasing popular in the UK, with research by predicting that the number of vegans in the UK will skyrocket by 327% by 2020.

Meanwhile, if you’re searching for a chocolate gift for a vegan family member or friend, Hotel Chocolat is your best bet as they have multiple impressive gifts on offer, including a Vegan Chocolate Hamper for £27.50.

The vegan Galaxy bars are sure to see high demand in the coming days and weeks, so whether you run to your nearest store or add a few bars to your online basket you may want to hurry.
