It’s time for a vegan grocery haul!

Whether you call it Ralphs, Dillons, Smith’s, Harris Teeter, Mariano’s, or Kroger, this grocery store chain has some of the tastiest (and cheapest) vegan products out there! The generic Kroger line, Simple Truth, stocks amazing vegan products. And no, we’re not talking about common items like produce, pasta, chips, hummus, and bread—we mean cream cheese, sausage, cookie dough, honey, and ice cream. So the next time you go grocery shopping, keep your eyes peeled for these vegan products at Kroger.

Refrigerated Items

Plant-Based Turkey and Ham Style Deli Slices

Sandwiches are one of those meals that will never go out of style. If you agree, you’ll want to grab these turkey and ham vegan deli slices the next time you’re at the grocery store. Simple Truth’s Plant-Based Black Forest Ham and Salt & Pepper Turkey Slices will take any sandwich from good to great!

Plant-Based Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy you a pack of this Plant-Based Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. This item might win the award for the best vegan item at Kroger. Why? It’s affordable, pre-made vegan cookie dough that turns into stellar cookies—that is, if it even makes it to the oven! And who doesn’t love cookie dough?

Frozen Items

Cinnamon French Toast Sticks

Most French toast isn’t vegan, as the bread is dipped in an egg-based batter. But once again, Kroger is showing the world that there can be a vegan version of anything. Their Cinnamon French Toast Sticks are accidentally vegan, which means the box isn’t explicitly labeled as vegan, but all of the ingredients are. C’mon, who doesn’t love an easy heat-and-eat meal?

Meatless Breakfast Patties

Meatless Crispy Tenders

No grocery store is complete without vegan chicken tenders or nuggets. While Kroger offers name-brand vegan chicken options like dinosaur-shaped nuggets, they also stock their own version of Meatless Crispy Tenders.

Shelf-Stable Items

Plant-Based Alfredo Vegan Pasta Sauce

What’s every vegan’s go-to meal? Pasta! It’s no secret that most tomato-based pasta sauces are vegan, but using the same vegan pasta sauce over and over again can be a bit mundane. That’s why we love switching things up with this Plant-Based Alfredo Sauce!

Sandwich Cookies

Oreos are an OG accidentally vegan product, so it’s only natural that Simple Truth makes its own version. Their Chocolate Sandwich Cookies and Duplex Sandwich Cookies are both made from vegan, non-GMO, and peanut-free ingredients without any high-fructose corn syrup.
