So, which sweets are vegan that you can purchase to celebrate Valentine’s Day?
This question has come up quite a bit leading up to that BIG V-DAY, and we’ve done the digging for you, so you don’t feel left out or no longer have any trouble getting your valentine the perfect sweet treat! These recommendations are by no-means deemed healthy, but we do like to indulge from time to time and know that our community is looking to us to provide the best plant-based resources. Therefore, we’ve got you covered.
We have been blown away on how many options you can get your vegan valentine when it comes to candies. Many tasty sweets we found are accidentally vegan, which makes it very accessible for anyone to purchase them. You can find most of these candies in your local bulk store, and we thought it was an excellent way for you to enjoy a few of these treats all at once. We like to encourage buying from a bulk store because you’re creating less waste and showing your true love for our wonderful planet too.

- Swedish Fish

- Smarties Candy Rolls
- Vegan Dark Chocolate Hearts
- Cinnamon Hearts Hard Candy

Romantic Vegan Valentines Date Ideas
Sign up for a virtual vegan cooking class
A virtual vegan cooking class is the perfect way to have a fun and safe valentine’s day. You can make some fantastic food, spend time with your partner, and crack open a bottle of wine.
Backyard (or living room) picnic!
Gather up your favorite snacks and take them to your backyard for a romantic vegan picnic.
If it’s too cold to take them outdoors in your town, just move indoors! Hang up twinkle lights, buy flowers, and use a nice blanket and cutlery to set the mood.

Visit Your Local Farmer’s Market
Don’t know what to cook for a vegan Valentine? Head over to the local market with your partner to get some inspiration. You can each pick out a few fresh ingredients for your meal, and support small businesses all in one afternoon.
Order Take-Out (But Make It Fun)!
If you aren’t in the mood for cooking, order take out with your partner by ordering different local restaurant menu courses.
For example, your partner is in charge of ordering appetizers and dessert, and you are in charge of the main meal! You can order from anywhere, but you can’t tell the other person what it is.
Then, surprise each other with what you’ve ordered, and have an array of food to munch on all night.
Okay, now that we’ve got your sweet tooth covered!
Let’s now dive into the entire Valentine’s Day experience and get real; this holiday is just like any other, it is all about the food!
We love the social aspects of enjoying food and that we can gather together to enjoy a special meal for the holidays. If you’re thinking of heading into the kitchen for your Valentine’s Day dinner this year, we’ve got your back! We know that going out to a restaurant to eat has its appeal, but making something yourself does add an extra special personal touch.
Also, you could make this into an entire date night by making a meal together. It’s romantic and fun! We might as well mention that this also will be helpful to those on a budget and still, letting it all remain equally special.
We recommend dinner for two with some shareable appetizers and mouth-watering entrees that any carnivore would be blown away by.
