Yes! All of UNREAL’s dark chocolate nut-butter cups, coconut bars, and dark chocolate gems are vegan. They’re certified by the Vegan Action Group. None of the ingredients in the products listed come from animals or animal by-products. We never test on animals, either. The sugars used in these products have not been processed with bone char.
Within the UNREAL product line, the only exceptions are our milk chocolate gems and the dark chocolate caramel peanut nougat bars. Those two products contain dairy and are not vegan.
No. While the ingredients in our vegan-certified products are not made from animals or animal by-products, nor are they tested on animals, they are manufactured in a facility that also makes milk chocolate products. The line is completely cleaned after runs of dark chocolate and milk chocolate, but we cannot promise that our vegan treats are 100% free of any milk proteins.
Feel free to look over the Vegan Action Group's FAQs for more information on the difference between vegan and dairy-free.
Many of our products are certified gluten-free by GFCO:
Our dark chocolate caramel peanut nougat bars use organic spelt flour because of manufacturing constraints. Because of that, they contain wheat. The bars are not suitable for anyone who has wheat-based allergies or sensitivities. Organic spelt flour makes up less than 0.5% of the product.
Our four certified gluten-free products are made in facilities that handle wheat. However, the Gluten Intolerance Group’s certification means that the Gluten Intolerance Group has certified our products to fall under their 10PPM gluten threshold.
Some of our products contain peanuts and/or tree nuts. Please check the ingredients panel on each individual product to find out if it contains peanuts or tree nuts. We cannot guarantee that our products are completely free of peanuts or tree nuts because they are made in facilities that also manufacture products with peanuts and/or tree nuts.
All UNREAL products are free of soy ingredients. However, we cannot guarantee that our products are 100% soy free because they are made in facilities that manufacture products containing soy.
Yes! The issue of genetic modification is important to us. All of our dark chocolate products are Non-GMO Project Verified. The ingredients that we exclusively source are not genetically modified. Visit https://www.nongmoproject.org to learn more.
UNREAL Milk Chocolate Gems contain Non-GMO ingredients, including rBST-free milk, but they are not Non-GMO Project Verified at this time.
Yes! Every product in our line uses Fair Trade certified chocolate, which means that the farmers who grow our cocoa are guaranteed to receive a minimum price for their cocoa beans. They also have safe working conditions and sustainable wages, along with Fair Trade premiums used to invest in community development. Those premiums are often used for leadership training, scholarships, and schools. Fair Trade farms do not permit child labor, slave labor, GMOs, or harmful chemicals.

Although we are not certified organic, many of the ingredients we use are organic. Read the ingredients panel on each product to find out which ingredients are organic!
Yes! Our gems are colored by nature! We use real ingredients, like beets for our pink and spirulina for our blue, to color our gems. We will never use chemical dyes or use artificial brightening agents either. Just real, natural, colorful ingredients.
We use Blue Agave Inulin as a prebiotic fiber in our nut-butter cups and our gems. We do not recommend these products for those who have an inulin sensitivity. For those who are avoiding this ingredient, our Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars and Dark Chocolate Caramel Peanut Nougat Bars are both made without inulin as an ingredient.
Our products are made in the USA and Canada.
We recommend you consume UNREAL by the date printed on the packaging. Like any natural food, UNREAL chocolate snacks will taste best the fresher they are!
