For all of us who get googly-eyed just thinking about a basket full of chocolate that's all ours, Easter is a great time of year. And when we fill our baskets with delicious vegan chocolates, we get all that melt-in-our-mouths goodness without any animal having to die for it. (Chocolate bunnies, of course, are fair game.)
Why should you leave the milk out of your chocolate bunny? Cows used in the dairy industry are often forced to produce 10 times more milk than they would naturally. Their babies are generally taken away from them shortly after birth, and the males are raised for veal. Worn out cows are sent to slaughter.
With the bounty of yummy vegan chocolates available from companies like Rose City Chocolatier, Allison's Gourmet Vegan Bakery, and Chocolate Inspirations, there's no need to steal milk from a calf. Harbor Candy Shop has created a delicious assortment just for PETA, available in a pre-assembled Easter basket.
So we can go ahead and get our hands messy devouring all our treats (mine don’t last very long), and still have our consciences clear. Happy Eater, I mean Easter!

Inspiration can be drawn from art, music, nature—the list is endless, really. But when it comes to warm, velvety inspiration in a mug, there's no need to look any further than Chocolate Inspirations' Gourmet Hot Chocolate Cups, which are available in cinnamon, latte, espresso, and dark chocolate flavors. And the winner of this week's "Win It" Wednesday contest will receive a pack consisting of one of each of these delicious cups.
Want a chance to win it? Who wouldn't?! Simply tell us your favorite way to enjoy a steaming cup of vegan hot chocolate. Do you like to drink your cocoa beside a cozy fireplace with your trusted companion by your side? Or maybe you love perusing the latest vegan recipes while sipping the sweet goods?
No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
