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:
Taco Bell Tortilla Chips
From one of the most vegan-friendly fast-food chains come potato chips in three new all-vegan flavors (Classic, Mild, and Fire)—and they’re available in grocery stores nationwide starting this month!

Ruffles All Dressed
This Ruffles flavor comes to us all the way from Canada and with its tangy, barbeque-y edge we’re glad it did.

These smoky and sweet chips probably shouldn’t be a substitute for breakfast—but they could be.
Indian Life Chips
Indian Life has unique vegan chips that will tantalize your taste buds with the spicy flavors of Samosas, Palak and Masala.
Flamin’ Hot Munchos Potato Crisps
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.
Chile & Lime Flavored Sabritones Puffed Wheat Snacks
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 “products.”
