Chocolate giant Hershey has announced that it will be releasing Vegan Ridge Peanut Butter Cups nationally by the end of this month! The long-awaited treat is made with oats instead of dairy and tastes like traditional milk chocolate.
Hershey is known for its Reese’s Chocolates, Hershey Bars, Kisses and many other popular candies. On top of making the exciting vegan Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, the company plans to release a plant-based chocolate Hershey bar with almonds and sea salt this April. “We’re excited to introduce these delicious, plant-based options,” Teal Liu, brand manager for Hershey Better for You, said in a statement.
You don’t have to wait for Hershey’s to get your hands on delicious vegan peanut butter cups! Many other delicious animal-free versions are already available on the market. Here are three of our favorites:
Unreal Peanut Butter Cups
These delicious dark-chocolate peanut butter cups are made without artificial flavors, preservatives, or fillers of any kind. They also come in nut butter!
Boasting a blend of smooth oat-milk chocolate and cakey peanut butter filling, these “Nutpaks” from Chump! Hard to beat!
Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups
Justin uses high-quality Rainforest Alliance-certified chocolate to create creamy dark-chocolate peanut butter cups.
