A List Of Junk Foods You Didn't Know Were Vegan, To Help You Transition Into Meat-Free Life

Helping out even the part-time Vegans

MOST POPULAR

Whether you're adopting the Vegan lifestyle for a little while, like Queen Bey, or are fully committing yourself, like these strong-willed ladies, there's much to be gained.

Not only will you be able to humble-brag to the rest of us about how difficult and rewarding the transition has been, but you will also probably have better skin, live longer and be saving the planet one chia seed at a time.

But it turns out Veganism isn't all pulses and avocados, plenty of good old-fashioned unhealthy things are Vegan too, yay!

Here is a little list of (often accidental) Vegan treats to make your life a little easier in between the healthy, hearty stews:

Bourbons

That's right, you can dip Bourbons into your black coffee until the cows come home (a Vegan freed them).

Other bickies you can gobble down are Hob Nobs, Oreos (though they have 'cross-contact' with milk, so it depends how strict you're being) and Lotus Biscoff Biscuits!

That means spread versions of biscuits are potentially on the table too.

Co-Op Donuts

If you haven't eaten an entire packet of these between the shop and your front door, you haven't lived.

Lindt Excellence Cocoa Bars in 70%, 85% and 90%

Uhuh, high-quality dark chocolate is often Vegan, that includes things like Cadbury's Bourneville bar too.

That means you can nibble some dark chocolate alongside your Green & Black's Organic Cocoa Powder Soya Hot Chocolate.

So sophisticated.

Sunpat's Peanut Butter

Eat with just a spoon, standing by your kitchen counter whilst cooking something else / looking in the fridge for more food for maximum impact.

Pot Noodles

Despite being voted the UK's least favourite brand of 2014, Pot Noodle are still the ultimate hungover\ poor\ drunk\student\ comfort\lazy food of all time.

They are so rubbish, even some of the meat flavours aren't even meat.

Hooray!

Here are the vegan flavours:

  • Beef & Tomato (brown)
  • Bombay Bad Boy (black)
  • Sweet & Sour (light blue)
  • Southern Fried Chicken (red)
  • Pot Noodle In a Mug, a Cup-a-Soup style packet variant with less noodles, in four flavours: Tomato & Herb, Spicy Curry, Chinese Chicken and Roast Chicken

Having said that, the brand that owns them, Unilever, apparently still test on animals, so it depends what kind of Vegan you are!

Tesco Bacon Rasher Snacks

Sainsbury and Morrison Bacon Crisp things are also apparently nothing to do with Bacon.

The New York Bakery Bagels

You probably already know that Bagels are generally Vegan, but this brand has the most delish flavours like Sesame, Wholemeal, Onion, Blueberry and Cinnamon and Raisin, as well as Plain.

Available in all the big shops and really often on a 2 for £2 deal they are the dream go-toVegan snack.

So there you have it, we've ruined your healthy eating resolution in one, swift article, you are welcome.

Do remember to check the label on different brands, since ingredients vary from product to product.
