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 stop for vegan and cruelty-free beauty products. But what you might not know is just how many plant-based snacks are waiting on the drugstore’s shelves.

Vegan food at convenience stores

Vegan options at CVS extend beyond the snack aisle. Previously, Beyond Burgers could be found in the chain’s refrigerated section, and Wicked Kitchen’s convenience meals could be picked up on store shelves. While these options have been phased out, plant-based eaters can still find a multitude of vegan food and grocery staples at CVS. 


Other than the drugstore’s wide selection of plant-based snacks, CVS’ vegan offerings include Silk Soymilk, Califia Farms cold brew, Annie Chun’s noodle bowls, canned soups by Amy’s Kitchen, and more. 

With its vast offerings, the national drugstore chain has become a reliable source of vegan finds throughout the years—whether you’re in a pinch for vegan milk or you’re on the road and in need of some snacks.
