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
One of the most satisfying flavor combos in the world of chips, these sweet, savory, spicy chips make fantastic nachos or pair well with guacamole.
Experience the two-for-one power of zesty salsa in a chip.
3. Fritos Original Corn Chips
Snack food that is real food’s best friend, a bag of classic Fritos makes the perfect base for a walking taco, and Fritos Scoops! will turn a good bowl of vegan chili into a monster of a meal.
These Ruffles bring on the heat.
These smoky and sweet chips probably shouldn’t be a substitute for breakfast—but they could be.
While most “Flamin’ Hot” Frito-Lay products aren’t vegan (e.g., Flamin’ Hot Lay’s, Flamin’ Hot Fritos), these have more than enough kick to fuel the fire in your mouth.
These wheat chips have a light and crispy texture that pleasantly contrasts with their intense flavor.
These have all the sharp cheddar taste and none of the cruelty associated with dairy foods.
This is perhaps the best food ever to come out of a can. FYI, if you can only find Tangy Buffalo Wing Pringles, those are vegan, too.
One of the boldest barbecue chips that money can buy, these make a solid lunch with a submarine sandwich.
A healthier chip and an old-school vegan staple, these are perfect for dipping into vegan spinach artichoke dip.
The chip with the most important-sounding name on the list, these have plenty of flavor to back it up.
This is another plant-based favorite from Earth Balance.
14. Kettle Brand Sea Salt & Vinegar Potato Chips
Sometimes, only the tangy bite of salt and vinegar can hit the spot.
A mysterious mash-up of spices, this remix is one of the greatest snack fusions out there.
If you’re looking for that special heat that only wasabi can deliver, look no further.
The best of both worlds, these are cheap and tasty. Pro tip: These chips are even more delicious if you crisp them in the oven at 400 degrees for about three to five minutes.
These potato and rice chips are healthy and low in fat but still crazy addictive.
19. 7-Eleven Select Go! Smart Sriracha Corn Tortilla Chips
These healthy chips pack a punch powered by the greatest condiment of all time.
If you want the delicious taste of a Thanksgiving sweet-potato pie year-round, look no further.
