See our Plant Based Hershey Bars Review where we cover price, nutrition, taste and texture of this chocolate alternative!
We are taking the guess work out of whether or not these Hershey plant-based products are worth it in our review (and taste test!)
It’s always hard to know where to spend your money when you’re vegan. So many packaged things cost a lot of money compared to their non-vegan counterparts.

Frequently Asked Questions:
No. There is soy in both the Hershey’s chocolate bar and Reese’s cups. The chocolate bar also contains almonds and the Reese’s contains peanuts.
Oat milk is the base for the Hershey’s products.
Depending on the store, they average $2.50-4 a package.
We found these products at Hersheypark. Some Riteaid and Walmart apparently also have them but we have not found at ours at the time of this post.
For best results, you can use the Hershey’s store locator for more information.
Hershey’s Plant Based Review
Hershey’s Plant Based Oat Chocolate Almond Bar
Thoughts: The chocolate is smooth and the almonds are tiny which goes well together. We did both agree that it seems to be a hint more dark chocolate than milk chocolate than we can remember, noting that it has been years since we had a normal Hershey’s chocolate bar.
We also agree that the $4 we paid at Hersheypark for the bar was a bit steep, considering that a dairy based bar is under $1.50.
Ingredients: SUGAR, COCOA BUTTER*, CHOCOLATE*, ALMONDS, OAT FLOUR, RICE FLOUR, LECITHIN (SOY), SUNFLOWER OIL, SEA SALT, NATURAL FLAVOR.*RAINFOREST ALLIANCE CERTIFIED
Allergens: Soy, Almonds.
Hershey’s Plant Based Reese’s Cups
Thoughts: We liked these better, but also liked them better pre-veganism.
Again we said the same thing about the dark chocolate vs milk chocolate taste and the price.
For Larisha, this didn’t taste as good as what she remembers because of that taste difference, but Andrew said that he doesn’t think he’d be able to tell them apart.

Allergens: Soy, Peanuts.
There’s a few things that we want to call out.
- We enjoyed these. It’s nice to be able to pick up a name brand product and be able to enjoy the normalcy of it.
- They are priced a bit high and we would love to see them come down in the future.
- They aren’t available everywhere yet and we really hope they push to bring more and more products to a larger market in the future.
- Overall, it’s a nice product to have once in awhile.
