15 Decadent Vegan Junk Food Items That Prove ‘Vegan’ Doesn’t Have To Mean ‘Boring’

Veganism is becoming more and more popular as the years go on, with millions around the world enjoying a diet free from animal products. However, there are some common misconceptions about the vegan lifestyle – the main one being that vegans eat boring stuff all day, and are miserable for it.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s not all salads and radishes, you know! Vegans love to pig out on junk food just like the rest of us, and even the omnivores among you will want to try a few of these junk food treats.

1. SEJOYIA Coco-roons

"Specifically the chewy lemon pie ones."—igotarock41

These things are delicious. I’d specifically recommend the chewy lemon pie variety. Oh, and if you get addicted, it ain’t my fault!

2. Field Roast Miniature corn dogs

"Delicious and probably something I shouldn’t be eating all of the time."—estelledelaf2

If you want something savory to snack on, you could do much worse than getting a bag of these, maybe with some ketchup on the side. Yummy.

3. ‘Free From’ Millionaire’s Shortbread

"All their products are produced in a nut free environment and have no nuts in."—OptimisticPessimist1

Most of you will have tried millionaire’s shortbread. With its multiple layers of sweetness, it’s hard not to like. What might surprise you is how these vegan alternatives taste just as good!

4. Fry’s “Chicken” Nuggets


Vegan meat substitutes seem to get closer to the real thing as the years go by. I honestly can’t tell the difference when I’m chomping on these fake chicken nuggets, and it makes me feel a little better that no chickens have had to suffer.

5. Guy’s Green Onion Chips

"So addicting!!! The brand is big in the Midwest, especially Kansas City." —jojobean85

There are a lot of different potato chip products that are vegan, but the manufacturers don’t always make a big fuss about it. Sometimes, they might not even know! These green onion chips are a great snack for vegans and non-vegans alike.

6. Strawberry Twizzlers

"Best junk food ever." —shl585

Is there a single person out there who doesn’t like strawberry twizzlers? I mean, there might be, but I don’t ever want to meet them.

7. Earth Balance Cheddar Squares

"Earth Balance cheddar squares taste just like Cheez-Its. So flavourful and buttery and addictive!"—laurens4f3d72397

They might have the word ‘cheddar’ on the box, but these bad boys contain no dairy whatsoever. They are, however, ridiculously moreish. A great study snack, but remember – just because they’re vegan, doesn’t mean they’re healthy!

8. Louisville Vegan Jerky

"I really don't miss meat except salty/sweet flavours like barbecue, and the texture of jerky. This stuff gets it right."—guess1who

A great bar snack for vegans. I guarantee most people wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between this and real jerky – especially after a few beers!

9. Blueberry Bliss Candy Kittens


Candy Kittens are a British brand of candy, specializing in vegan treats. Having tried these, I can assure you that everyone with a sweet tooth will enjoy them, whether they are vegan or not.

10. Dairy Free Coconut Almond Ice Creams

"The name doesn’t disappoint!!"—robynb4b9c5f183

These are the ultimate decadent vegan ice cream treat. Be warned – they come in boxes of 4, and you could easily find yourself eating all of them with very little effort.

11. Daiya Mac & Cheese

Mac & Cheese is the ultimate American comfort food, and takes us back to childhood whenever we have it. Thanks to Daiya, vegans can indulge in a bowl of Mac & Cheese without sacrificing flavor.

12. Lotus Biscoff Biscuit Spread

"Food of the gods." —n474a0831d

Okay, I’m obviously not encouraging you to eat this ultra-sugary biscuit spread out of the jar – that’s pretty decadent. All I’m saying is that God gave us all free will, and I’m not going to judge you if you do.

13. Tesco ‘Free From’ Cheesy Nachos


Another savory vegan treat of the cheesy variety. Absolutely divine with a guacamole dip, as pictured on the packaging. Get a packet in for the next big game night!

14. Unreal Dark Chocolate Almond Buttercups


These are almost too good to be true, and vegans can scoff them down guilt-free. They’re also Fair Trade certified!

15. Ben & Jerrys Chunky Monkey non-dairy

I must confess – I had no idea this banana-based flavor of Ben & Jerry’s had a vegan variety! I have, however, eaten a whole tub of it to myself. Many times. Only God can judge me.
