5 Tasty Vegan Snacks

Whoever said veganism was healthy?

1. Oreos

Who doesn’t love Oreos? They’re a great snack that many people don’t realise is vegan. That gives you an excuse to eat a whole bag of Oreos. Why not?

2. Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate is my one true love. Lindt 70% is my all-time fave, but any will do. People often think that if you’re going vegan, you have to give up chocolate entirely, but that’s really not the case. Dark chocolate most likely doesn’t contain milk (still double check when you’re buying though) as the likelihood of it containing milk reduces with each percentage of cocoa it contains. And no, cocoa butter is not dairy. I have no idea why it’s called butter.

Go and satisfy your chocolate cravings, my vegan friends!

3. BBQ Pringles

Most of the meat flavoured Pringles are actually vegan, which is great for us! We all know how addictive Pringles are and it’s great to have a staple crisp as a go-to.

4. Veggie Percy Pigs

Most soft sweets are excluded to vegans, due to them containing gelatin, so it’s nice to have an exception. And an exception that tastes so good. I know loads of people (including omnivores) who prefer the taste of the Veggie Percy Pigs to the normal ones.

(I have just been told by one of my friend that these are not in fact vegan, as they contain beeswax. I know some vegans don't worry about bee products.)

5. Hummus

This one is the healthier option. I had to include one, didn’t I? Hummus is great to include in lunches as well as having on crackers or pieces of bread in between meals. Or falafel, I love hummus and falafel. Okay, I’m getting distracted by thoughts of falafel...

Do you have any suggestions for vegan snacks? I’d love to know them so that I can build up repertoire.
