We all love a good box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day—and there are plenty of vegan options for that—but there is also a whole other world of vegan candy options available to sweeten the holiday this year.
While the grocery store offers several vegan options for the occasion, (Wonka Sweetarts Lollipops, Ring Pop Cupid packs, and Wonka Valentine Fun Dip), I am excited about this round-up of vegan, all-natural and organic candy that is free of chemicals and dyes. Most of them are also gluten-free and Kosher certified!
From lollipops and chews, to hard candy and gummies, there is something for everyone on this list. Pick a few favorites below and create a candy bar display or bouquet to woo your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day!
