The Best Vegan Chips You Can Buy at the Grocery Store
Whether you’re hosting a party, packing plant-based lunches, preparing for a road trip, or just restocking your home pantry, you need these vegan-friendly chips.
From work lunches and afterschool snacks to plant-based cookouts and road trips, there are many opportunities to enjoy crispy, crunchy, plant-based chips. Seriously, can you name a more iconic and enjoyable snack? While some mainstream chips contain milk powder and even animal fat, there are many easy-to-find cruelty-free options. For some serious chip inspiration, check out our list of the best vegan chips you can buy at the grocery store.
This inclusive brand is giving big snack energy! The Siete Sea Salt Grain-Free Tortilla Chips are perfect for dipping in guac or making loaded vegan nachos. But the brand didn’t stop there. Find seasoned tortilla chips in flavors like Nacho, Fuego, and Ranch. Their kettle-cooked potato chips can also be enjoyed in Barbeque, Queso, Sea Salt & Vinegar, and more.
For more vegan chips to obsess over, check out the Beanfields brand! The plant-based company offers several flavors of tortilla-style chips to savor. Flavors include Nacho, Sour Cream & Onion, and Pico de Gallo. While we seriously love these paired with sandwiches and burgers, the brand has another snack up its sleeve. Beanfields Sweet Onion Rings, anyone?
Hippeas tortilla chips contain a blend of flour made from chickpeas and corn and come available in four delicious flavors. Vegan chips for the win! Enjoy Straight Up Sea Salt, Rockin’ Ranch, Sea Salt & Lime, and Jalapeno Vegan Cheddar. We love these organic snacks straight from the bag, with or without a creamy plant-based dip for dunking.
Chips made from vegetables? We can’t get enough! In addition to crackers, pretzels, and stalks, From the Ground Up offers a plethora of vegan chips to crunch on. The brand’s tortilla chips are made with cauliflower and butternut squash and come in flavors like Sea Salt, Nacho, and Lime. Also, find potato chips made with a variety of veggies, like cauliflower, carrot, beet, and broccoli.
From kettle style to thin & crispy varieties, Boulder Canyon chips are where it’s at. While these crunchy chips are delicious and indulgent, they are made with better-for-you oils, like avocado and olive. Although not all their chips are animal-free, vegan chips include Malt Vinegar & Sea Salt, Hickory Barbeque, and Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper. Enjoy with or without a dairy-free chip dip.
Looking for something beyond the potato? Terra chips are made with a variety of real vegetables, including beets, sweet potatoes, parsnips, taro, and yuca root. And the color is a stellar blend of rich blues, deep purples, and gorgeous earth tones. Oh, and they taste great to boot. While the Mediterranean variety does contain milk, many other Terra chips are totally vegan.
These vegan chips are not your average potato chips. Instead of cooking in the deep fryer, Popchips are heated in a pressurized chamber which causes them to … well … pop. While not all Popchips are vegan, we love the Sea Salt, Barbeque, and Sea Salt & Vinegar varieties. These snacks taste great straight from the bag or served with your plant-based charcuterie favorites.
Plant-based potato crisps coming right up! While they might remind you of the chips you grew up eating, chips from The Good Crisp Company are both gluten-free and vegan-friendly. Check out the Classic Original, Sea Salt & Vinegar, and Outback BBQ for a cruelty-free afternoon snack. We seriously can’t stop crunching on these!
The brand that brought you Veggie Straws is also serving up vegan chips! Their Garden Veggie Chips are so crunchy and hold up well with vegan French onion dip and other creamy spreads. The brand also offers Garden Veggie Stacked Chips in resealable cylindrical containers. Stacked chips come in several flavors and both the Sea Salt and BBQ varieties are vegan-friendly.
These chips are seriously so crunchy, and we are here for it! While not all Kettle Brand chip varieties are vegan, the snack company offers several cruelty-free chips to enjoy from their Classic, Krinkle Cut, and Organic lines. Although we could keep going, it’s the Sea Salt & Vinegar, Backyard Barbeque, Dill Pickle, and Jalapeno varieties for us!
During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
