Accidentally Vegan: Chew-ets Dark Chocolate Peanut Chews!
Oh yes, it is true!! Delicious chocolate, check. Chewy caramel, check. Crunchy peanuts, check.
100% vegan AND kosher, check!
Chew-ets, also known as Peanut Chews, are a super vegan chocolate caramel peanut candy that’s accidentally vegan! Because Chew-ets are marked kosher parve, they are manufactured without any dairy. The caramel is made with good old fashioned molasses! You can find Chew-ets at most drugstores. I first spotted them at my local Rite-Aid mixed in with all of the other candy bars near the check-out section. You can also find them online at Amazon.
I love caramel, and vegan caramel can be relatively difficult to find. So, if you’re also craving a vegan caramel chocolate treat, I’m glad to share that Chew-ets are on the list of possibilities!
Note: Chew-ets also makes a milk chocolate version of their peanut chews. Only the dark chocolate one in the red package is accidentally vegan.
