You probably associate CVS with the place you pick up your prescription, run into for bandages or ibuprofen, get an extra long receipt, or make an emergency cruelty-free beauty pick-up. But what you might not know is just how many plant-based snacks are waiting on the drugstore’s shelves. These 20 plant-based snacks (and more!) can be found at your local CVS.


1Peeled Snacks Baked Pea Crisps

Made from whole green pea flour and a deliciously zesty ranch seasoning blend, these gluten-free puffed snacks have a little boost of plant protein and are super kid-friendly. 

2Hippeas White Cheddar Chickpea Puffs

These chickpea puffs have earned themselves a cult-following, gotten investments from celebs like Leonardo DiCaprio, won a couple of VegNews Veggie Awards, and satisfy our cheesy cravings. 



These longtime plant-based favorites are made from simple ingredients like dates and nuts, yet somehow still manage to taste like cookie dough. We’re big fans of the chocolate chip flavor, but you can also find classics like Apple Pie, Cherry Pie, and Cashew Cookie at CVS. 


4Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Raspberry Protein Bites

These protein-rich, gluten-free nuggets are coated in a thick, rich dark chocolate coating that makes these treats taste more like an indulgent dessert than a protein snack. 

5Love Corn Smoked BBQ Corn Snacks

Corn kernels are roasted to crunchy perfection then coated in a dusting of hickory BBQ seasoning that is just so finger-lickin’ good. Snacking on veggies never tasted so amazing. 


6Dang Chocolate Sea Salt Keto Bar

Vegan and keto collide in this healthy-fat-packed, loaded-with-protein bar. With ingredients like almond butter, cocoa butter, pea protein, sunflower seeds, and chia seeds, you’ll want to grab a few of these to stash in your bag when hunger strikes. 


7MadeGood Strawberry Granola Mini Bites

Made from gluten-free oats, strawberry pieces, agave, apple pieces, crisp brown rice, and vegetable extracts, these chewy bites are nutrient-rich, healthy, and delicious.

8OWYN Cold Brew Coffee Plant-Based Protein Drink

With 20 grams of plant-based protein in every bottle, and essential amino acids for muscle recovery, metabolism, and easy digestion, these drinks are great for having on hand during busy days. 


9Gold Emblem Abound Heavenly Light Popcorn

An essential for movie nights, road trips, and long errand days! This simple popcorn snack is totally vegan and lightly salted.


10Peatos Snacks

Onion rings, cheesy curls, pizza rings, fiery curls … all of your favorite salty snacks are getting a vegan makeover. Pick up these irresistible snacks for when the munchies hit in the aisles of CVS.


11GoMacro High-Protein Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Bar

These always-vegan, always-gluten-free protein bars are made with high-quality ingredients such as almond butter, brown rice protein, puffed brown rice, fair-trade chocolate, and unsweetened coconut so you can feel extra good about eating this post-workout. 


12Nora Spicy Tempura Seaweed Snacks

Your classic seaweed snacks get a total step up when they’re covered in crispy tempura coating and spiced with chili powder. You won’t be able to resist eating the whole bag in one go. 


13Siete Grain-Free Fuego Tortilla Chips

Real food ingredients like tomato, smoked serrano, and jalapeño give these chips an irresistible zing, while cassava flour steps in for the corn and flour in these delicious spiced snacks. They also have ranch and cheesy flavors, but we’re obsessed with the fuego.
