There’s nothing wrong with being a cliché on Valentine’s Day if your loved one is into clichés, you know?

Some people really do like receiving flowers and chocolates and that’s okay.

What’s not okay though is how hard it is to find decent Valentine’s chocolates when you’ve got a plant-based partner, so we’ve rounded up a cute collection of cocoa-based treats so you don’t have to do the legwork.

If your boo is dairy-free for allergy reasons, we’ve also listed whether the product is made in a factory that handles dairy, as we don’t want anyone to go into anaphylactic shock on Valentine’s Day.

No, no, honestly, thank us later, lovers, thank us later.
