In addition to roses, cards, and jewelry, one of the most popular Valentine's Day gifts out there is — without a doubt — chocolate. And whether you're looking to try something new, if you'd rather opt for a cruelty-free treat, or if your partner happens to be plant-based, you may be looking for vegan Valentine's Day chocolate options. We totally have you covered.
