The iconic chocolate brand Lindt has released a range of vegan milk chocolate bars in the U.K.

The irresistible bars are made from oat milk and come in three favours – Cookie, Hazelnut, and Salted Caramel. Each 100g bar is wrapped in completely recyclable packaging.

Sold out straight away

A frenzy ensued after The Conscious Candy Company announced it was the first retailer stocking the bars and as a result, they sold out straight away.

The store warned: ‘Grab this bar whilst you can because it’s sure to fly off the shelves’.

It is unclear when other retailers will be stocking the products, but you can sign up to be notified when the bars are back in stock on the Conscious Candy Company’s website.

Lindt’s exciting announcement

The Swiss confectionery giant announced the launch earlier this year and claimed the products would initially only be available in Germany from November.

The vegan bars are part of Lindt’s HELLO range.

Lindt is planning a large advertising campaign to promote the bars in time for Christmas, according to TheVeganKind.

Vegan milk chocolate

The brand joins the likes of Mars in producing new plant-based milk bars this winter.

The Galaxy vegan range is expanding, adding Crumbled Cookie and Smooth Mint to its dairy-free line-up in Asda stores online.
