We Bet You Didn't Know These Foods Are Vegan

A vegan lifestyle isn't for everyone, but it's not as difficult to adhere to as you might think.

For those of you who are vegan, you probably know about the plethora of "accidentally" vegan snacks, treats and drinks you can find at your local supermarket.

If you're not vegan, or relatively new to the vegan life, we're about to blow your mind with 11 foods you had no idea were vegan.

Oreos

We know what you're thinking, "Isn't there milk in the cream?" In fact, there is not. Oreos are totally vegan, which is why they're everyone's favorite cookie.

Red Bull

Most energy drinks contain the ingredient taurine, which is derived from an animal, making it non-vegan. Red Bull isn't made with the chemical, making it totally vegan.

 

Hershey's Chocolate Syrup

Yep, this classic chocolate syrup is vegan. There are no animal byproducts or dairy in it, so vegans can use it for all sorts of things.
 

Sour Patch Kids

Gelatin is in a ton of gummy candies, but not Sour Patch Kids. These bad boys are made with a plant-based substitute for the ingredient.

Ritz Crackers

Though you probably thought that the snack crackers contain butter, milk or eggs, they don't!

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

The buttery taste of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls doesn't come from butter. It's actually a combo of salt and vegetable oil.

Duncan Hines Whipped Frosting

Vegans, rejoice! The whipped frosting from Duncan Hines is made with vegetable oil shortening. Just don't eat a tub in one sitting.

 

Jell-O Instant Pudding

While Jell-O isn't vegan, their instant pudding is. There's absolutely no gelatin in this treat and you can prep it with any non-dairy milk you like. So enjoy!

 

Snyder's of Hanover Jalapeño Pretzel Pieces

Pretzels are almost always vegan, unless they're flavored. But that has changed thanks to Snyder's of Hanover's Jalapeño Pretzel Pieces. Snack on these guys until you can't snack no more.

 

McCormick Bacon Flavored Bits

Yep, these bacon bits are totally vegan. There isn't a trace of bacon or animal byproduct in these bits. Crazy, huh?

 

SuperPretzel Baked Soft Pretzels

Soft baked pretzels are everything, so shoutout to SuperPretzel for making some that are totally vegan. It's the little things that matter.
