14 junk foods you can eat on World Vegan Day guilt-free

Have your cake and eat it too.

RIGHT, SO BEFORE anyone starts with the “yeah, but bacon” comments, this isn’t an attempt to convert anyone – just to inform.

You want to eat meat? You do you, boo. Stop clutching your string of sausages so fearfully.

But as it’s World Vegan Day, we did think it’d be cool to shed some light on the many, many mainstream sweets and treats that are vegan friendly.

1. Fry’s Chocolate Cream

A chocolate bar made by Cadbury’s, Fry’s Chocolate Cream is dairy-free and vegan.

However, it’s worth noting that they are made in a factory which handles dairy, so if you have severe allergies, steer clear.

2. Doritos

Specifically the Chili Heatwave and Lightly Salted ones. Throw some Violife on it, whip up some salsa and BAM – vegan nachos!


3. Party Rings

The makers of the biscuit reformulated the recipe recently to ensure no animal products are used. Yay!


4. Jelly tots

Most jellies are out of bounds for vegans because they contain gelatine. Not these bad boys though. Dig in.


5. Bourbon biscuits

Supreme for dunking. What more could you want?

6. Lotus Biscoff Spread

As if anyone needed another excuse to eat an entire jar in one sitting.

7. Starbursts

Even the manky coloured ones.

8. Cadbury Bournville Plain Chocolate

9. Lindt Excellence –  70%, 85%  and 90% Dark Chocolate

10. Skittles

11. Hula Hoops

That includes the original flavour and salt and vinegar.


12. Bacon fries

Most varieties of bacon fries are vegan, including the Tesco Bacon Rasher snacks, but it’s worth double checking the ingredient list before picking some up!

13. McVities Hob-Nobs

14. Pot Noodle

The vegan flavours are as follows – Beef & Tomato, Bombay Bad Boy, Sweet & Sour, Brazilian BBQ Steak, Chilli Beef, Chinese Chow Mein, Piri Piri Chicken and *deep breath* Sticky Rib.
