Discover a selection of vegan delicacies, whether you're snacking on the go or enjoying an evening treat
The myth that vegan snacks taste terrible is ancient history. A multitude of delicious plant-based morsels have flooded the market to the delight of health-conscious and ethical customers everywhere, and an enormous number of them taste amazing.
But this is a snacking revolution not solely reserved for vegans. These treats are perfect for anyone on the hunt for something a little bit special, or for those of us looking to make our new Meat-Free Monday ritual as enjoyable as possible.
Each of the snacks we've chosen below are entirely plant-based and ethically produced. More importantly, they'll tingle your taste-buds and leave you with a hankering for just one more bite. The brands below are even ideal as presents for friends, so now's the perfect time to surprise the vegan in your life.
The Vegan Kind
It's one thing enjoying a single vegan snack, but just imagine being sent a bespoke selection of them every month. That's the exceptional service offered by The Vegan Kind, a subscription box company with a focus on plant-based goodies.
Designed in part as a great way to help ease people into veganism, the good people at The Vegan Kind pore over the best that the meat-free market has to offer and packs it into their subscription boxes. When you subscribe, you'll receive a box each month crammed with everything from cosmetic products to delectable treats. Crisps, almonds, dark chocolate – it's all a possibility in their subscription box.
What will you receive from your first order? You'll have to subscribe to find out.

If you've ever balked at other nutritional shakes, Dare's offering might change your mind.

Luxury chocolate is a dime-a dozen, but few live up to their decadent promise as deliciously as Montezuma's. Their vegan range is teeming with a huge selection of dark chocolate flavours, including mint, orange, and cherry, as well as pure 100% dark chocolate. But our personal favourites from the Montezuma's range are the organic and vegan dark chocolate truffles, which offer the perfect bite-sized accompaniment to your afternoon Americano.
