10 junk foods you didn’t know were vegan


Despite not being able to eat meat, dairy, or eggs, Vegans don’t only eat vegetables all day. Surprisingly, some of your favorite snacks are vegan, such as  Oreos, Sun Chips, and Reese’s Puffs.

Vegan means that you can’t eat any animal products, which cuts out common ingredients such as meat, dairy, and eggs.

This can often be difficult, especially when you start to feel hangry after your oh-so-boring history lecture and need a quick go-to snack. If you’re looking for a delectable treat that fits the vegan lifestyle, munch down on one of these completely vegan snacks (although I can’t guarantee they will be the most nutritious choices).

1. Oreosoreos

Who doesn’t love these chocolatey cookies? (And I totally won’t judge you for licking the icing out of the middle first. It’s the best part.) Just remember that you can’t dunk your cookies in a glass of milk if you want to eat by vegan standards.

2. Fritos Original Corn Chips

These classic crunchy chips will satisfy your salty craving. For an extra twist, try adding them to a bowl of veggie chili or using them as a base for a walking taco.

3. Sun Chips Original

Grab a bag of these wavy, square chips, and satisfy your hunger and health knowing that they’re vegan, along with being 100% multigrain.

4. Sour Patch Kids

First they’re sour, then they’re sweet. And you can feel sweet, knowing you’re not consuming any animal products when munching down on this delicious candy.

5. Unfrosted Pop-Tarts

Although you do have to sacrifice the icing, it’s worth it knowing you can still eat one of these tasty pastries. Vegan flavors include apple cinnamon, blueberry, brown sugar cinnamon, and strawberry.

6. Thin Mints

We’re not lying. Go ahead, eat the four boxes in one sitting while binge-watchingGrey’s Anatomy on Netflix. FYI: Peanut Butter Patties, Lemonades, and Thanks-A-Lots are also vegan.

7. Ritz CrackersRitz Crackers

Try topping these rich and buttery crackers with a slice of vegan cheese.

8. Reese’s Puffs

Although its candy counterpart may contain animal products, try a bowl of Reese’s Puffs with almond milk, and “amazing things can happen.”

9. Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars

If you’re looking for an emergency snack to keep in your backpack for times of desperate hunger, buy a box of these vegan granola bars. You can try them in flavors such as apple crisp, cinnamon, maple brown sugar, and peanut butter.

10. Wheat Thins


We think it’s really “wheat” that these tasty crackers are considered vegan. The original flavor is tasty, but you can also switch it up by trying the garden vegetable, sun-dried tomato & basil, or zesty salsa.

Although avoiding all animal products may sound like a treacherous feat, it isn’t as difficult as you may think, especially when you can nosh on these savory vegan snacks.
