Think you need to say goodbye to the nation's favourite snack when going vegan? Think again. There are loads of accidentally vegan crisps out there, as well as options made with plant-lovers in mind. Enjoy our pick of the best.
I'd probably get handed my p45 if I didn't include a homage to the team's favourite crisps. There's always at least three cans floating around the office, as well as the other vegan-friendly flavours including Original, Sweet Chilli, Paprika, and Smokey Bacon.
Another party favourite, this is our preferred vegan offering from Doritos. Unlike the Cool Original flavour, these are 100% plant-based, so rip a bag open during your next movie night and enjoy.
No, honestly! This flavour is completely vegan, so enjoy this childhood classic as part of your next lunchtime meal deal and take yourself back to the 90s. (Maybe whack on Grange Hill or Byker Grove too, for maximum effect).
Remember the feeling of ultimate sophistication when you first cracked these open at the family picnic? Enjoying that feeling as a vegan, thanks to their plant-based ingredients.
Aka the new best friend of your favourite hummus, these guys are great for when you're craving something a little more substantial.
We love discovering inventive foods by brands who put their own spin on classics. So we were delighted to find these in our local Holland and Barrett – we just need them to be more widely available!
This brand has become a favourite within the plant-based community, and we're so glad to see their wide range popping up in more and more stores. This flavour is our favourite as you'd never guess it's vegan. AND they're slightly healthier than traditional crisps, too!
Have no fear, your lunchbox favourite is totally vegan and is available... pretty much anywhere, so go get your fill. A few of the other flavours are surprisingly vegan too, including Salt & Vinegar and Spicy Chilli.
Stay tuned for the next instalment in our Vegan Shopping Basket series.
