Global confectionary manufacturer Mars is getting ready to launch three dairy-free versions of its popular Galaxy chocolate bar.

“This is our first vegan product” announced Kerry Cavanaugh, the unit director of chocolate at Mars. “We felt it was time to offer fans of our best-selling Galaxy brand more choice. We expect it to be very popular at Christmas for families and friends to share, as well as in Veganuary.
