Vegan Shopping Basket – The Best Vegan Crisps

by Laura Barns

6min read

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.

Pringles Texas BBQ

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.

Best for: popping without stopping

Average price: £2.50

Availability: 5/5 

Taste: 5/5 

Overall rating: 5/5

Doritos Chilli Heatwave

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.

Best for: sharing with friends at parties/movie nights/bbqs

Average price: £1.00

Availability: 5/5

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Walkers Prawn Cocktail

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).

Best for: hungry vegans on the go

Average price: £1.50

Availability: 5/5

Taste: 4/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Kettle Chips – Salt & Balsamic Vinegar

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.

Best for: when you want a Walkers upgrade

Average price: £2

Availability: 5/5

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 4/5

Tyrrells Mixed Root Vegetable Chips

Aka the new best friend of your favourite hummus, these guys are great for when you're craving something a little more substantial.

Best for: if you want something different from your salty snack

Average price: £1.25

Accessibility: 4/5 

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 3/5

Hippeas Take It Cheesy

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!

Best for: kids big and small who love cheesy crisps

Average price: £2.75

Availability: 2/5

Taste: 4/5 

Overall rating: 3/5 

Eat Real Sour Cream & Chives Quinoa Chips

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!

Best for: when you want something on the healthier end of the scale

Average price: £0.79

Availability: 2/5 

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Hula Hoops Ready Salted 

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.

Best for: the ultimate throwback

Average price: £1.00

Availability: 5/5 

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 4/5
