A trip to the grocery store isn’t complete without treating yourself to some snacks. Whether you’re the type to snack as you shop (no judgment here), you love to pick up a little something for the car ride home, or you just like to make sure that the pantry is always stocked with your favorite foods, here are some of the best vegan snacks you can grab from Walmart (which has a wide array of vegan food items to choose from). And the best part? At the time of writing, they’re all available for less than $6. 

What makes a vegan snack?

Snack foods are often accidentally vegan (which means they are plant-based, but weren’t intentionally made without animal ingredients by the brand). Takis, for example, have many vegan-friendly options, and you can find plenty of other accidentally vegan snack ideas, like Sour Patch Kids and Oreos, here.

But sometimes, snack foods—like chips, cookies, bars, and crackers—do contain ingredients like milk and eggs, so it’s important to check the ingredients list before you select “add to cart.” To help you make plant-based snack choices, we’ve compiled some of the best dairy-, egg-, and meat-free choices at Walmart below.
