We’ll be in touch to get your info! Congratulations!

Sjaak’s was one of the first companies from which I purchased vegan chocolate, back when I was just dabbling in veganism. They continue to offer a variety of chocolates for special occasions and every day.

I’m usually all about the dark chocolate,Β  but I have come to appreciate the smooth, sweet flavor of rice milk chocolate. It’s wonderful that even those vegans who prefer milk chocolate now have so many choices.

Eli’s Earth Bars are delicious candy bars in three varieties–all coated in rice milk chocolate.

The Dream Big Bar is caramel, peanuts and peanut butter, and is sweet, with just enough peanuts to provide some balance and crunch.

The Treasure Bar is crunchy peanut butter and caramel. It tastes like a big, delicious peanut butter cup with little chewy pieces of caramel floating inside.

The Celebrate Bar contains caramel and almonds, but is so much more. It’s coconuty caramel with a crunchy almond bonus.

Sjaak’s donates 5% of every sale to childrens’ charities, and the chocolate is fair-trade and organic.

  1. I like to make my own chocolate almond bark, break that crap up into pieces, throw it in a bag and hide it in my purse for a rainy day. (Or for five minutes later.)

  2. My favorite vegan candy is chocolate, hands down. I’ve always been a 100% dark chocolate girl but, since trying rice milk chocolate recently, I’ve had a change of heart. A few days ago I even tried making my own rice milk chocolate, but failed miserably.

  3. I love anything with almonds, peanuts, carmel, and esp chocolate! I am quite a fan of Sweet and Sara Vegan Marshmallow/Chocolate treats. I love the holiday ones, makes me feel included when I saometimes feel left out. I love all the options you are offering, who wouldn’t? ??? vegan candy

  4. My favorite are Sweet & Sara’s Toasted Coconut Marshmallows. I’m excited to try these though, especially the ones with peanut butter!

  5. There is a local chocolate shop that makes a lot of vegan chocolates, and my favorites are the peanut butter caramel, coconut cream, and the seasonal ones like the cream filled bunnies!

  6. If I can include chocolate in the term “candy”, then Sjaak’s little chocolate bites (almond butter and mint flavors)!! Was never a huge candy person. But I do love chocolate! These sound awesome.

  7. My favorite vegan candy is the dark chocolate sea salt almonds from Trader Joe’s. I try to tell myself that they’re NOT candy, but are actually part of some more virtuous food grouping, like ‘nut snacks’. But, um…they’re candy.

  8. Whittaker’s dark peanut slabs! I make them at home now just by melting some dark chocolate in a double-boiler, mixing peanuts in, and having them set in the fridge, in muffin cups. Om nom nom.

  9. I have some raw organic hibiscus and ginger chocolate right now. I don’t know if it’s my favorite, but it’s tasty. πŸ™‚

    And now I want to eat a chocolate bar for breakfast. Thanks a lot. πŸ˜€

  10. Like others, I’ve only tried the Go Max Go bars, which I love because I’m not a huge fan of dark chocolate. The Mahalo is my favorite because of the coconut. But last Valentine’s Day I ordered myself a box of Sjaak’s truffles (what, its not normal to order chocolate for yourself?) and loved them! So I’d be super pumped to try these.

  11. I turned vegan on my birthday and i already have a favorite candy bar! I love the Go Max Go Joker bars! Their like a yummier version of snickers.. Great giveaway!

  12. I LOVE the Treasure Bars and the Dream Bars the best! They’re all so good! This is my favorite brand of candy bar, but they don’t sell them near me yet.

  13. My favorite vegan candy is a fair trade salted chocolate bar. I’m not good with names, but It comes in a lovely blue and silver wrapper and is delicious.

  14. I’ve had very few vegan candy bars myself…. trying ot find which ones are vegan has proved too hard i think. i do think I have tried the TWilight ones also, and they are great. But omg these sound delicious!!!!!! especially the Celebrate Bar. Though with a combination of caramel and nuts, who could go wrong with any of them? I could use a chocolate pick me up right about now… homework blues!!!!

  15. My favorite vegan candy is the homemade chocolate peanut butter cups, made from the recipe in Alicia Silverstone’s The Kind Diet. I make them using the crunchy peanut butter in the bulk bin at WF, make up my own graham crackers from a recipe in the King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking book. For special occasions, I’ll use a large heart shaped mold, and make just one giant peanut butter cup.
    Favorite store bought – Eli’s Teasure Bar – the crunchy peanut butter does it for me.

  16. I was SO happy when I found a gummi bear that was both vegan AND gluten free – gummi is my first weakness, chocolate and caramel is my second. I would love to try these – I love the name Dream Big and I love the ingredients of the Treasure!

  17. My favorite vegan candy is Cocomels (especially the espresso flavor) but I also love chocolate! Thanks for having such a great giveaway!

  18. I am a newbie, to this awesome blog and the vegan way. So for me, vegan candy so far is dark chocolate and fruit!

  19. For chocolate we’ve been enjoying Equal Exchange Organic Dark Chocolate with Almonds lately and my kids have been known to eat their weight in ginger chews. I am sure I could fall in love with any of the bars in the picture…drool!

  20. My favorite vegan candy bar so far is…GoMaxGo’s Buccaneer. Sadly, my local Co-Op carries some Sjaak’s chocolates, but not the candy bars. Yet.

  21. My husband and I are trying vegan for 21 days (I plan on staying). We are on day 17. Never knew there was a “milk” chocolate Candy, we have been popping popcorn as our treat. Would love to try it!

  22. Man, that is a tough question…so many good vegan candies!! Right now it’s probably these Japanese rice candies called Tomoe (soooo good!!), but that could always change. *wink wink*

  23. My favorite vegan candy is actually my homemade peanut or mint chocolate cups. I probably eat four to every one my husband manages to snag. πŸ™‚

  24. I love anything with chocolate. I was i heaven when I first tried the Go Max Go Jokerz bar. So good. I never had Eli’s Earth Bars, but they sound absolutely wonderful.

  25. I haven’t really tried much vegan candy, as I’ve only just taken my first steps towards a meat-free lifestyle. I recently got to try a Raw Revolution bar in chocolate coconut, and omg was it tasty! Soft and chewy like a brownie, I was really impressed that raw vegan could taste so good. I’m looking forward to trying more! πŸ™‚

  26. My favorite chocolate is actually the raw chocolate nut squares my local health food store makes. I have tried a couple of other chocolates, but I’d really like to try some different kinds. Pick me! πŸ˜€

  27. My favorite candy would have to be surfnsweets sour gummy worms. Before beComing vegan I love gummy worms and when I found vegan ones I was in love!

  28. I also love the dark chocolate sea salt and turbinado almonds from Trader Joe’s! They are delicious! And these sound fantastic.I would love to try something new!!

  29. Coconut caramel and almond is quite possibly one of the best combinations I’ve ever tasted. I haven’t had this particular brand, but I’m sure they’re delicious.

  30. Missionary Chocolates from Portland is easily my favorite vegan candy. I don’t know how they make those amazing chocolate truffles taste so dang good, but I’m very much (and happily) addicted.

  31. My favorite vegan candy is hazelnuts covered in chocolate. I heat up some semisweet chocolate chips, then toss in some hazelnuts, and spread the mixture out on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes. And hot damn is it good!

  32. I love spicy apple ginger chews! They are glorious. I can eat a ton of them and can hardly even feel the dull ache of sugar coated teeth over their flavor and the happy meeting of ginger and my tummy.

    And those bars look fantastic..!

  33. I’d have to say it’s a tie between Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter cups and Rescue Chocolate’s Peanut Butter Pitt Bulls since all of Rescue Chocolates proceeds go to animal rescues and Pit Bulls are near and dear to my heart.

  34. Sweet Teeth, an independant chocolatier in Charleston, makes a vegan chocolate bar called The AChocolypse, which is just about the greatest thing ever. It’s a dark chocolate bar with candied ginger bits and popping sugar. Yes, like pop rocks. Only vegan. Like a party in your mouth. It’s awesome that they have a vegan option and I’m hoping they expand their vegan product line!

  35. My absolute favorite vegan candies are the chocolate peanut butter cups from Alicia Silverstone’s ‘The Kind Diet’. HOLY MOLY. You must restrain yourself.
