Lindt has launched an oat milk chocolate Santa ahead of this year’s holiday season.
Lindt’s modernized oat milk Santa features a fresh green uniform, a mobile phone, sunglasses, and even headphones.
The company’s dairy milk original is popular in Europe and the UK throughout Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and the vegan version is sure to be a hit with friends and family. Lindt’s oat milk chocolate Santa launched under its HELLO confectionary brand, which showcases innovative new flavors and blends.
This includes last year’s well-received trio of vegan milk chocolate bars, available in Salted Caramel, Hazelnut, and Cookie flavor, each one made using a combination of oat milk and almond paste in place of dairy.
For now, the new oat milk Santa is available at The Conscious Candy Company, an online vegan pick and mix shop.
Lindt Santas and oat milk chocolate
Oat milk is increasingly the go-to ingredient for serious chocolate makers. It’s sustainable, dairy-free, and gives confectionery the sought-after creamy flavor of traditional milk.
Brands such as Endangered Species Chocolate, Land, Pump Street, Raaka, MAST, and even James Cadbury’s Happiness in Plants (HiP) have all introduced oat milk-based chocolate products. American candy giant Hershey recently launched an oat milk chocolate bar.
There are also several vegan chocolate Santas already available in supermarkets, including Original and White Chocolate versions (and a snowman) from Moo Free, a dark chocolate version from D&D, one from Rosengarten, and one from plant-based pioneers Plamil.
