43 New Vegan Products We Discovered at Expo West

Check out these new and upcoming vegan products we spotted at Expo West!

After a two-year hiatus, Natural Products Expo West is back in action! As the leading trade show in the natural, organic, and healthy products industry, this event is where retailers, buyers, investors, and members of the press get to learn about new brands and products. While the event is closed to the public, we’re here to report back on our findings. Here’s a list of 43 new vegan products we discovered at Expo West.

Chocolate Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches

GoodPop

This Austin-based vegan frozen dessert brand is reimagining all of your childhood faves. Their new Chocolate Vanilla Sandwiches, which come in at just 110 calories and 8g of sugar per serving, are made from vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, fair-trade ingredients.

Cheesy Spreadables

Melt Organic

If we told you we only had one sample of Melt Organic’s new Cheesy Spreadables at Expo West, we’d be lying. The moment we tasted the Queso Picante flavor, it automatically rose to the top of our favorite dips list. Enjoyed warm or cold, dipped or spread—the possibilities with these new spreads are endless!

Plant-Based Whipped Cream

Whipt

Whether you prefer your plant-based whipped cream made from oat, coconut, or soy, Whipt has you covered! From ice cream sundaes to slices of pie, this vegan whipped cream is just what you need to top off your dessert.

Crunchy Pizza Rings

PeaTos

You might know PeaTos for their veganized Hot Cheetos, but not all of their products have been 100% vegan—most notably, their cheese-flavored chips and curls. At the expo, PeaTos debuted as an all-vegan brand with reformulated snacks in all of the nostalgic flavors. Their newest Crunchy Pizza Rings are our latest obsession.

Plant Based Bacon Breakfast Bowl

Tattooed Chef

From burritos, quesadillas, and bowls to plant-based snack bars enhanced with adaptogens, Tattooed Chef is not playing around with all of its upcoming vegan launches. We’re most excited for the Plant Based Bacon Breakfast Bowl with vegan bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns, and bell peppers drizzled in a cheesy sauce. Yes, it’s 100% vegan!

Brownie Snaps

Emmy’s Organics

Plant-Based Ganache

Bon Dévil

When it comes to plant-based desserts and branding, Bon Dévil knocks it out of the park. Their vegan ganache cups are cool to look at, satisfying to eat, and kinder to your body than dairy-based ganaches. From chocolate and vanilla to caramelized banana and salted caramel chocolate, you’re bound to have a wicked good experience no matter what flavor you choose.

Mint Chip Oat Creamer

Califia Farms

When it comes to vegan coffee creamer, Califia Farms is one of the best in show. At the expo, the brand added a vegan, gluten-free Mint Chip Oat Creamer to its vast portfolio. We can’t wait to stock up!

There are plenty of vegan cheese products out there in the form of slices, shreds, wedges, and cream cheese. But one product that hasn’t been done vegan is cottage cheese. Enter: Miyoko’s Creamery.

Oh, did we mention this sauce hardens on ice cream like Magic Shell?

We were shocked when we read the ingredients list of GoodSam Foods’ new Chocolate Cake Mix. Almond flour, allulose, cocoa powder, leavening, corn starch, and salt—that’s it! You can make this cake vegan by combining the mix with chia or flax eggs and your plant-based milk of choice.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe

Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
