Somewhere in the world, many years ago, a genius decided to make the most relevant junk foods vegan. Although they aren’t labeled and marketed as such, the snacks we’ve listed below are all vegan-approved and easy to find. You’re welcome, world.
1. Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos
This purple bag of mouthwatering Doritos is the answer to all of life’s questions (and the ultimate munchies solution). If you miss the crunchy goodness of the other dairy-filled flavors, find solace in these tangy chips.
2. Swedish Fish
Candy is dandy, but most are made with gelatin (cow’s bones), carmine color (crushed beetles), and confectioner’s glaze (female lac beetles)—not Swedish Fish, ‘doh! Stuff your face with this childhood favorite, because you can.
3. Sour Patch Kids
Halloween doesn’t have to be the saddest holiday for vegans—trade your chocolates for these chewy sweets and you’ll never be left out again.
4. Nutter Butters
Nutter Butters are vegan gifts from the heavens. I am guaranteed to kill off an entire container of these peanut butter-y cookies every time I buy a new batch. They’re salty, sweet, and slightly reminiscent of childhood.
5. Dum Dums
At the end of the semester when you professor passes around a bag lollipops, don’t feel embarrassed about grabbing ten of these suckers.
6. Nesquik Chocolate Syrup
Mixed with almond milk and cooled with ice, Nesquik chocolate syrup will become your best friend on a hot summer day.
SURPRISE! All vegans should know this secret, so go ahead and dunk these cookies in the aforementioned chocolate almond milk concoction.
