Vegan gift chocolates?

I would like to send a gift from a reputable online vendor of high quality chocolates (or some other confection) to someone who is Vegan.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

  1. I'd try Dagoba or Endangered Species Chocolates.....

        Jes, Peaches, have you tried these companies? What did you think of the taste/quality?

        I am familiar with Endangered Species as their chocolate bars are sold at my local grocery store.

          I like Allison's the best. I occasionally get them shipped to my US mail drop b/c they don't ship to Canada. But that's my personal rec!

      2. This is a really cute boutique in Seattle that specializes in vegan chocolates (and shoes...I don't really get the connection but whatever) and sells online:

        1. This is a great small artisan in Boston area......they are amazing! Many of theirs are vegan, and they will assemble a vegan box for you:

          1. I love Kakawa in Santa Fe. Because the owner believes that milk products sully the flavor of the cocoa beans he brings back by hand from South America, many of their chocolates are vegan. My favorite is their regular 70% chocolate with nibs, but they do all kinds of truffles and other specialty chocolates. http://www.kakawachocolates.com/ Another great resource for all things chocolate is Cacao in Portland, OR. They source fine chocolate from all over the world and have a decent collection of vegan chocolates. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful: http://cacaodrinkchocolate.com/ - 503-241-0656 . I've mail ordered from both of these places with no problems whatsoever.

            PS: If you call Kakawa, try to speak to the owner personally, as he'll know the exact content of each kind of chocolate. The staff can be a bit flakey.
