Good Morning Friends!
I get asked a lot of what my diet consists of being vegan. Let me be 100% honest, I am still trying to fully move over plant based. There are still cravings I cave to once in a while. Like when we were dealing with Aria and her alopecia I caved to some non vegan items.
I am not here to preach. Going plant based is a personal choice and you are all free to make your own diet choices. Mine are for health and ethical reasons, but I come from a line of hunters and I see both sides. It’s just a choice I made for myself being an animal lover and my body rejecting animal products.
With that being said let’s talk about SNACKS!!!
Oh man…these chips are so stinking good! The sriracha flavored ones were gone in a day. I had a little help but man those were heaven. Sometimes vegan snacks can be bland, and you do get used to some of the tastes. These taste like my pre-plant based days snacks. There are five flavors and only one of them I believe isn’t vegan, and thats because it is a cheddar flavor. I love the sriracha one, and I really want the coconut one.
Ben & Jerry’s Non-Dairy Ice Cream
Yum! Made with almond milk this ice cream is pretty yummy. Of course it is not as creamy as original ice cream but it hits the spot when you want a pint. There are a lot of different dairy free ice creams, but I’ve really been liking Ben and Jerry lately.
Lenny and Larry Cookies
I love Lenny and Larry cookies. They are big cookies so I usually only eat half for the sake of macros. The oatmeal raisin one is my favorite of the bunch, the only one I didn’t really like was the peanut butter one. They are soft and really delicious.
That’s It fruit bars
Honestly I have only had this once and totally forgot about it until I went to write this post. I had the Mango one and as a mango lover it was delicious.I mean it’s a pretty standard fruit bar, but I loved the taste of the mango. It wasn’t overly sweet. They have a blueberry one I want to try, and I believe they have a cherry.
Beanfields Nacho Chips
Well I cheated on this one. Can’t say it’s a favorite because every time I go shopping it’s out of stock. So it must be good if they can’t keep it on the shelves right? I heard it is much like a Dorito only with plant based ingredients. I will continue to hunt down this unicorn and report back. It comes in 4 flavors and the Jalepino Nacho is the only one I ever see in stock.
Earth Balance Cheese Squares
Basically these are vegan “Cheez-It” crackers. They taste pretty close not exact but they fill the craving. I am looking for a white cheddar version because those were my absolute favorite flavor of Cheez It.
UnReal Peanut Gems and Peanut butter cups
Now I am not a huge fan of dark chocolate but there are times of the month where I would give my left arm for chocolate anything. These actually taste really good and not super super bitter. They def fill a craving as well.
Smart Sweets Sour Blast Buddies
My sister got me hooked on these when they first came out. Sour Patch kids are my all time favorite candy. So when these came about I had to try them. They are actually pretty similar. Now Sour Patch kids are technically vegan, but they have a crap load of sugar where as the Smart Sweet ones only have 3 grams.
They have peach rings now, Swedish fish, and gummy bears but I don’t think the gummy bear ones are vegan.
Angies Boom Chicka Pop
The kettle corn…yum. I love this flavor of popcorn! I also love that I can buy it in bulk at Costco. I wish all of these snacks came in Costco sized packs because vegans need bulk items ok. There is also skinny pop, but for some reason I just really like Boom Chicka pop better. I can’t even give a good reason for it. Try them both out and tell me what you think
Now other than fruits and veggies this completes my list of vegan snacks.
Do you have any plant based snacks you love that didn’t make the list? I am always up for finding new yummy treats.
