Mr. Popple’s dairy milk free milk chocolate bars… HUH?!

What is Dairy-Free Chocolate?

Dairy-free milk chocolate may sound strange, but it’s actually a delicious treat that many people enjoy. It’s made with plant-based milks like oat milk or rice milk instead of cow’s milk. This means it doesn’t contain any dairy products from animals.

You might think that dairy-free chocolate wouldn’t taste as good as regular milk chocolate. But that’s not true! Dairy-free chocolate can be just as creamy and smooth as dairy chocolate, thanks to the plant-based milks used to make it. In fact, many of our customers have said that our dairy-free chocolate tastes “cleaner” and creamier than milk chocolate made from dairy.

Why Choose Dairy-Free?

There are several reasons why people choose to eat dairy-free chocolate:

  1. It’s better for the environment. Dairy farms contribute to climate change by producing a lot of greenhouse gases like methane. Plant-based milks like oat milk and rice milk have a much smaller environmental impact.
  2. It’s better for animals. No cows or other animals are involved in making dairy-free chocolate. This means that animals don’t have to be kept in factories or farms just to produce dairy products.
  3. It can be healthier. Dairy-free chocolate made with raw ingredients can be packed with antioxidants and other nutrients that are good for your body. Some people also find that they feel better when they avoid dairy products.
  4. Food allergies and dairy intolerance. Many people are experiencing intolerances or allergies to dairy and lactose.
  5. It’s vegan. If you follow a vegan diet and lifestyle, dairy-free chocolate is a great option for you. Vegans don’t eat any animal products, including dairy, and more people are embracing veganism each year1.
  6. Cultural or religious reasons: Some cultures or religions have dietary laws that restrict the consumption of dairy.
  7. Dietary restrictions: Certain diets, like Paleo or Whole30, restrict the consumption of dairy products.
  8. Taste preference: Some people simply prefer the taste of milk chocolate made without dairy, which can be less “cheesey” tasting than regular milk chocolate, and can have a more pronounced cocoa flavour.

But you don’t have to be in any of the above camps to enjoy dairy-free chocolate. Many people who eat dairy products also like to have dairy-free options sometimes. Our mission is to create the tastiest, healthiest, most ethical chocolate bars that everyone can enjoy, whatever their dietary preferences.

Eating chocolate with no dairy is a perfect example of how you can have your cake and eat it too – or in this case, your chocolate bar!

The Ingredients in Our Dairy-Free Chocolate Bars

At Mr Popple’s Chocolate we handcraft our chocolate bars with high-quality plant-based milks like gluten free oat milk and gluten free rice milk. Here are some of the benefits of these milks over dairy:

Oat Milk

Heart HealthOat milk contains beta-glucan, a type of fiber that can help lower bad cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.2.
Nutrients, vitamins and mineralsRich in fiber, specifically beta-glucan, which can help lower cholesterol levels. Good amount of protein, with a 1/2 cup serving providing almost 7 grams. High in many vitamins and minerals, including manganese, phosphorus, copper, iron, selenium, and magnesium. These nutrients play a crucial role in energy production and overall health.
Eco-FriendlyProducing oat milk uses 80% less land, 60% less energy, and 10 times less water than producing dairy milk. It also produces 80% less greenhouse gases.3

Rice Milk

Low FatRice milk contains very little fat, making it a healthier choice than many dairy milks.
Low Environmental ImpactRice milk requires less water, land, and greenhouse gas emissions to produce compared to dairy milk.4
Sweet TasteRice milk has a naturally sweet and thin texture that some people prefer.

We use these plant-based milks to create a creamy and delicious dairy-free chocolate that’s also better for the planet and animals.

The Benefits of Dairy-Free Chocolate

Here are some of the main benefits of choosing dairy-free chocolate over regular dairy chocolate:

  1. It’s better for your health. Our chocolate is made with raw ingredients, which means it’s full of antioxidants. Antioxidants can help protect your body’s cells from damage and may reduce the risk of diseases like heart disease and cancer.5.
  2. It’s better for the environment. The dairy industry is a major source of greenhouse gases like methane, which contribute to climate change. Choosing dairy-free chocolate helps reduce your environmental impact.6.
  3. It’s better for animals. No animals are involved in the production, which means they don’t have to be kept in factories or farms just for their dairy products.
  4. It tastes amazing! Our no dairy milk chocolate bars have a rich, creamy flavour that will satisfy any chocolate craving.
