Finding vegan and allergy-friendly snacks has never been easier. While you should always double-check ingredients labels, the brands on this list are a great place to start. To keep it simple, we’ve broken it into sections, including treats that are certified gluten-free and ones that are free of the top nine allergens.
By going vegan, you already avoid multiple common allergens such as fish, shellfish, eggs, and milk. Not only does fishing destroy the ocean, it’s also responsible for the death of billions of animals, including dolphins, whales, sharks, and turtles. Peanuts, tree nuts, sesame, soybeans, and wheat complete the list of top allergens.
