Vegan Brands I Love
I've been pursuing a vegan lifestyle since college, but always seem to have missteps, either from fuck-it moments or missed ingredients. Over the years, I've come to cherish a few vegan friendly brands that help me get my cheesy, crunchy, sweet fix without eating dairy.
While I was searching for vegan recipes, I found this list of vegan and non-vegan food brands on Food.com. I was surprised by some of the items that aren't vegan, like Boboli pizza crust and some types of Oreos.Most of them aren't vegan because they have whey in them, which is a byproduct of making cheese.
Below, are some of my favorite vegan snacks and foods, along with some surprises that aren't.
