Vegan Chocolate Easter Bunnies Are Nice to Cows

It’s that time of year again, the time when we all pause to reflect on ideas of rebirth and salvation, and also shove as much chocolate and candy into our mouths as possible.

It’s Easter season! That can mean only one thing: chocolate bunnies, chocolate eggs, and chocolate just-about-everything-else.

But what if you want to have yourself a vegan Easter? Easy: go for some vegan Easter chocolates.

There are plenty of places to get good vegan chocolate, both locally and online. If there aren’t any vegan bakeries or food shops near you, look for dark chocolate chips or other vegan chocolates at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. Usually, if you’re eating natural dark chocolate and not milk chocolate, you’re all good. Alternatively, you could go to a site like chocolateinspirations.com and your purchase will help fund animal shelters.

PETA’s online catalog has its very own animal-friendly Easter basket, assembled by the Harbor Candy Shop. In it, you’ll get assorted vegan chocolates, a chocolate egg with peanut butter filling, peanut brittle, and a delicious vegan chocolate bunny.

PETA notes that milk and dairy-free products are important due to the treatment of cows at commercial dairy farms. Often these cows are milked for far more than they should be, their young are taken away from them very early on with the males being raised for veal, and when they become worn down and unable to produce enough milk, they are taken to slaughter.

So try some vegan chocolates this year! Your conscience will thank you, and so will the cows…even if your diet might not.
