Equal Exchange has a "very dark chocolate" that is vegan and fair trade. I think the calorie content is about the same, though, it's something to check out. I like it a lot and I looove chocolate!

If you have a bulk section in your grocery store, look for non-dairy Dark Chocolate chips. Sunspire makes non-dairy chocolate chips as well as carob chips. Also, I probably shouldn't be posting this, cause it's too yummy (and thus fattening), but Pangea Vegan Store has lots of sweets http://www.veganstore.com/food-items.html

What about powdered dark chocolate that is vegan and caffeine free? Anyone know where or what brand to look for? A friend has some that she got in California (I don't know the brand), but she cannot find it here in Colorado Springs. She has a wonderful chocolate mousse recipe that I would like to make.

Thanks for the quick responses everyone! I know 50 calories isn't a lot. But compared to the other ones that I saw that were 20 calories I thought it was. I guess I will stick with the Endangered Species brand if it's the best option.. and the darkest!! :)

Lauren-
Dark chocolate that does add milk isn't true dark chocolate--it's just commercialized and they add milk b/c most people don't really like the true taste of dark/bitter chocolate. There are tons of brands that make true dark chocolate, all of which are vegan. Endangered Species, Chocolove, Newman's Own, Green & Black, etc. Check your natural food store for dark chocolate instead of the regular grocery, which usually sells the "fake" dark chocolate.

The article "Be Choosy about Chocolate" in the Nutrition Resource Center also offers tips for picking a good dark chocolate.

Also, true dark chocolate isn't low-calorie b/c there are no low-calorie fillers like what you MIL eats. But chocolate in moderation is key!

Hope that helps,

Nicole

Hey,

I am looking for some single servings (like the little squares) of vegan dark chocolate. I think it will help to savor one small piece when I have a craving. I bought Endangered Species extra dark squares but they are 50 calories each. When I was looking at others they all had milk fat in them (YUCK).. my mother in law has non-vegan ones that are only like 25 calories a piece. Not FAIR! So any help on brands would be greatly apprieciated!

Thanks!
Lauren

P.S. If it's DARK chocolate.. not MILK.. why must they add MILK??? emoticon
