If you love cheese, you're going to be obsessed with moon cheese. These small, crunchy balls are made with 100% cheese, so you just know they're packed with cheesy flavor, making for a salty, high-protein snack that's low in sugar and carbs. They come in cheddar, garlic parmesan, pepper jack, gouda and black pepper white cheddar flavors, so there's something for every cheese lover.

Elavi specializes in collagen-packed superfood bars and cashew butters designed for strength, focus and energy. While their collagen-packed protein bars are pretty standard in the taste department, we really loved their cashew butters—especially the vibrant Blue Spirulina Vanilla flavor, which can be used as a spread or eaten straight out of the packet.
If you're looking for an energy drink alternative that'll pick you up without the crashes and jitters, we have to recommend Marquis caffeinated beverages. They have a zero-calorie, zero-sugar formula and are packed with vitamins B3, B5, B6, B12 and C to keep you going all day long (and they taste pretty amazing, too).

Popchips may not be new, but this better-for-you potato chip tastes great and makes for an awesome alternative to the greasy classics—especially in the traditional Sour Cream & Onion, Barbecue and Sea Salt flavors. Plus, new flavors including Fiery Buffalo and Fully Loaded just launched, so now there's more to enjoy than ever.
Looking for something substantial to eat when you don't have much time? Bobo's oat bars come in all kinds of flavors and varieties and are a satisfying and tasty snack that you can easily eat on the go. Our favorites are the bites filled with fruit, but you really can't go wrong with any choice.

Some veggie burgers try too hard to be like a traditional meat burger, and other results are just plain weird. That's not the case with Actual Veggies, a brand that makes tasty quarter-pound plant-based burger patties made with 100% vegetables. They embrace the inherent deliciousness of different ingredients, such as beans, beets, sweet potatoes and greens, to make a different kind of burger, and each and every one is seriously tasty.

Now, if you're all about that classic kombucha taste, but don't like that some kombucha contains traces of alcohol, Aqua ViTea is for you. The brand uses a special extraction process to remove any alcohol while sticking to bold flavors using real fruits, herbs and spices to work with that signature vinegary tang—and the peach flavor is a must.

Sfoglini Cascatelli Pasta
It's not often that we see a pasta that turns our heads, but Sfoglini's Cascatelli's pasta is special. This waterfall-inspired pasta shape was three years in the making, but it was entirely worth the wait. It was optimized for sauce, fork-friendliness and bite, and it excels in all three categories, no matter what kind of sauce you're using.
VFC stands for Vegan Fried Chicken, and it is the best frozen plant-based fried chicken we've tried. Available in Popcorn Chick*n, Chick*n Bites and Chick*n Filets, each variety has a crispy, satisfying coating and "chicken" that tastes and tears like the real thing. You could have us fooled!
If you're serious about tea, Chaiboy is a must-try. Their loose-leaf teas are made with the highest quality ingredients to elevate the tea-drinking experience and change the way you think about chai. Plus, their Chaiboy Strainer is a game-changer for loose leaf fanatics.
Teas just aren't the same without a little sugar to sweeten them up, and Storied Goods completely rethinks the experience with their flavored sugar cubes. Their lineup features Rose Petal Sugar Cubes, Orange Zest Sugar Cubes and Cinnamon Vanilla Sugar Cubes, each of which add a unique flavor to your favorite hot drink of choice.

Poppi puts a twist on classic sodas with a touch of prebiotic apple cider vinegar. Their fruity flavors are fun, crisp and satisfying, and are developed to work with the flavor of apple cider, so you're always sipping something delicious while supporting your gut health.

Cocomels' vegan caramels use coconut milk to get that classic caramel taste and texture, and we seriously can't tell the difference. They also have several keto-friendly products with less than one gram of sugar per serving, and we're not sure how they do it, but they're just as sweet and satisfying as you'd expect any dark chocolate caramel to be.
Odyssey Mushroom Elixir
Need a burst of energy, as well as concentration and focus? Odyssey Mushrooms have caffeine, as well as a blend of adaptogenic mushrooms including lion's mane, reishi, turkey tail, chaga, shiitake, maitake and cordyceps to have you functioning at your very best—and the flavors are pretty tasty, too.

Firstly, their grain-free cassava crust turns out crisp and delicious every time, and secondly, they're filled with healthy fruits and vegetables, while still somehow managing to taste like a delicious bite of pizza. They come in Cheese, Veggie White and Buffalo Chicken varieties, and every single one will leave you satisfied and looking forward to your next bag.
