The Best Vegan Alternatives of Your Favorite Candy Bars

Some go vegan because they want to live a healthier lifestyle. I am not one of those people.

I switched to veganism over six and a half years ago simply because I wanted to help animals. I had no intentions of only eating fruits and veggies for the rest of my life, and I still don't.

Being one of the unhealthiest vegans around (at least, imho), I've been able to find plenty of vegan alternatives to my favorite treats and desserts when I'm craving something sugary sweet.

One of my favorite vegan—and gluten-free, for those who care—brands is Go Max Go Foods. They make vegan versions of classic candy bars like Snickers, Twix and even Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Yeah, they're kind of amazing.

Scroll below to see all the vegan candy bars they have to offer!

For fans of Butterfingers, try Thumbs Up

This crunchy, peanut butter center covered in a milk-chocolate coating will totally make your taste buds think they're salivating over a classic Butterfinger. Little will they know, it's really a Thumbs Up bar.

If you like Nestlé Crunch bars, you'll enjoy SNAP!

SNAP! is crisped rice in a milk-chocolatey coating. Just like a Crunch bar, you'll inhale this sweet treat in little to no time.

Got a hankering for an Almond Joy? Try a Mahalo

Love the chocolate and almond combo of an Almond Joy? The Mahalo bar provides a perfectly delicious vegan version of that same combo, so you never have to go a day without this candy bar.


Everyone who likes Milky Ways will love a Twilight

There's no denying that the caramel and nougat chocolate-covered goodness of a Milky Way makes for one of the best chocolate bars around. Going vegan means you don't have to give that up, thanks to the Twilight bar.


All about Snickers? Opt for a Jokerz

Hungry, but can't eat a Snickers? Filled with peanuts, caramel and nougat and covered in a chocolate coating, the Jokerz candy bar will quiet your roaring stomach.


3 Musketeers fans will go crazy for a Buccaneer

The fluffy dark-chocolate nougat doused in milk chocolate of a Buccaneer tastes exactly like a classic 3 Musketeers bar. You're welcome.


Twix-lovers can get their fix with a 2fer

Whether you enjoyed the right or left Twix better, the 2fer is right up your alley. A crunchy cookie topped with caramel and covered in chocolate, you simply can't go wrong with this candy bar.


Can't bear to part with Reese's? You don't have to thanks to Cleo's

The classic combo of peanut butter and chocolate in a Reese's is all anyone really needs in life. Going vegan doesn't mean you have to give these cups up, because Cleo's exist. They even have a white-chocolate version, if you're into that sort of thing.


You can build your own box of these chocolates HERE, or you can find a store near you that sells them HERE.
