Vegan chocolate question

So as from yesterday I've gone dairy free, just because my 5 week old has really bad colic ( it sounds assume ) and some other mummy's said they went dairy free and it made a huge difference to baby. I know for sure this may not work, but I've tried everything else and it's so bad I had to give it a go!

My question is, I researched vegan chocolate (I need my fix!) and many website said they Ritter sports marzipan (small red square packet) but having double checked the instructions, it says may contain trace of milk, does this mean it's not vegan? Not trying to sound dumb, it's just a lot of website and threads recommended if, so in a bit confused! Thanks for replying smile

It is says that, then it means it's not vegan - it will be made in a factory where dairy chocolate is also made and so there is a chance that some dairy will be present in this.
I guess it depends on how strict you want to be about it.....

It is generally a cross contamination issue and the disclaimer is there to cover allergies. As a vegan I eat chocolate that 'may contain milk' as although the lines are shared they are cleaned thoroughly between batches of milk/non milk chocolate.

'May contain traces' just means that it isn't safe for someone who's allergic to dairy as It's manufactured in the same place as something containing dairy. I'd see that as vegan as the ingredients are vegan friendly.

Some people might be more strict.

That's good then!
I have ordered a bunch of dairy free chocolate in my next shop to try ha, but I'm still rather new to it all!
Thanks for the replies smilechocolateflowers

A lot of regular 70% chocolate bars are naturally dairy free too - green & blacks is I think.
