20 Vegan Chips to Satisfy Your Most Extreme Craving

This page is adapted from peta2.

We’ve all been there, at that gas station after hours of travel, with T minus seven minutes until you’re back on the road. Your mission: to stock up on snack rations* for the rest of the trip. You may not know it, but animal-derived ingredients like cheese, whey, and even lard (ew) can be lurking in chips. Instead of reading through ingredients lists when you could be snacking, check out our guide to vegan chips:

1. Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos
