Läderach Chocolatier Suisse announced today the launch of a new vegan chocolate collection formulated with cashew milk instead of dairy milk, coconut blossom sugar instead of sugar and no preservatives. The coconut blossom sugar is organic, coming from Indonesia, the cashew milk from Vietnam, and cocoa beans from Ecuador and Ghana. The new vegan chocolate collection will have a specially marked ‘Vegan Taste Approved’ packaging sticker.
22 fresh vegan chocolates from Läderach will be available online and in 40 stores across the US and Canada. This includes Creamy Cashew Tablet, made with cashew milk and coconut blossom sugar, FrischSchoggi Vegan Cashew made from roasted and caramelized whole cashew nights, and Creamy Cashew Vegan Popcorn, caramelized popcorn encased in vegan dark chocolate.
