6 Surprisingly Vegan Snacks You Probably Already Have in Your Pantry
I decided to do a little digging through my pantry this weekend, and I realized that a lot of the snacks that I keep on hand are actually vegan. So before you go searching for Vegan labels, first check your pantry to see if you already have these surprisingly vegan snacks! *Please note that these are vegan but not necessarily ‘healthy’*
1.Belvita Breakfast Cookies
These are so good. We always have a box at home. Currently, we’ve been on a crunchy cranberry and orange kick, but there are a TON of flavors to choose from. These are available pretty much everywhere and are super affordable. You might’ve been eating these for YEARS without realizing they were vegan (*cough* like me *cough*).
2.Most Potato Chips
Not surprisingly, most potato chips would fit in this category as ‘vegan’. We usually have kettle cooked variants, like these Cape Cod Kettle Cooked Potato Chips. But a lot of Lays flavors (like barbecue) are also vegan! Not a big stretch at all!
3.Motts Flavored Food Snacks
So one of the most surprising facts I learned while researching vegan living was that things like gummy bears and Jello were not, in fact, vegan. Most gummies contain gelatin which is derived from animal bones, tissue, and other parts. So to avoid this, you want to look for products made with pectin. We usually keep a box of Mott’s Assorted gummies on hand for when I want the gummy texture without the animal cruelty.
4. So Delicious Ice Cream
My husband recently decided to cut out all dairy, and while we already switched to non-dairy milk, I’m still not ready to let go of my Ben & Jerry’s. But luckily for my husband, we discovered So Delicious. Non-dairy, gluten free, and vegan friendly, this frozen treat is taaaaaaasty. It also stays soft, so you don’t have to wait around for thawing! We currently have the Salted Caramel Cluster Cashew Milk Frozen Dessert in our freezer, but I don’t think it’ll last long…
You cannot imagine my JOY when I realized that my OG fav, Oreos are vegan. I basically always have Double Stuffed in my pantry (and expect a lot you do too)!. Snack confidently, guys. Oreos=vegan.
