Veganism extends beyond a plant-based diet; it is a lifestyle that refrains from any animal-derived products. VIE CHOCOLAT takes this to heart, crafting the chocolates with a focus on both health and beauty. The store replaces traditional milk and cream with soy or almond milk, which results in chocolates with fewer calories and lower sugar content.

The selection from the vegan chocolate store also includes chocolates tailored for children and those with allergies, ensuring that everyone can savor the unique vegan chocolate and sweets available at VIE CHOCOLAT.
