Ultimate Guide to Vegan Grocery Shopping at Target
Target is more than a store; it’s a lifestyle. Whether you pronounce it “Target” or “Tarjay,” we can agree on one thing: Target has an amazing selection of vegan goodies. Some are healthy and some are junk food, depending on what tickles your fancy, but there are plenty overall. Here are some of the vegan options to check out the next time you find yourself walking down the aisles of Target.
Target’s got you covered with their selection of snack bars. They have Larabars, Clif Bars, and That’s It Bars, to name a few. Snack bars are really great for when you’re on-the-go, or in a pinch—whether you are in between meals or don’t have access to vegan options while out and about. They usually have great deals on these bars too, so whenever there’s a sale, it’s great to stock up.
Vegan Ice Cream
While some ice creams may be labeled as “non-dairy,” that doesn’t always mean they’re automatically vegan. That’s why it’s generally good to always check the ingredients list. But thankfully, Target offers several brands of ice creams that are actually vegan, from brands like Haagen-Dazs, Ben & Jerry’s, and Archer Farms. Each brand has a variety of flavors to choose from—one highlight is the Non-Dairy Coconut Seven Layer Bar flavor from Ben & Jerry’s.
Cold Brew Coffee and Creamer
There are several companies that sell their vegan cold brew coffees and creamers at Target. Califia Farms has their regular line of cold brew coffees and creamers available there, and Target even carries their seasonal ones too, such as their Ginger Snap Latte and their Peppermint Mocha Cold Brew Coffee. There’s also almond milk creamers Silk that are vegan as well.
Whether you prefer cereal, granola, waffles, breakfast burritos, or oatmeal for breakfast, they’ve probably got it at Target. Some highlights include the Cinnamon Crunch Cereal from Cascadian Farms, Nature’s Path Pumpkin Seed + Flax Granola, Sweet Earth Foods’ The Big Sur Breakfast Burrito, and frozen waffles from brands like Nature’s Path and Van’s Foods.
Sometimes it’s a frozen pizza kind of night and if you are vegan, Target has a few options. For instance, there is the Veggie Lover’s Pizza from Sweet Earth Foods, plus pizzas that are both vegan and gluten-free from Daiya Foods.
Whether you are a gluten-eating vegan or a gluten-free one, there is something so satisfying about eating pasta. Target stocks well-known brands, like Barilla, as well as unique ones, like Banza, which is made from chickpeas, and Ancient Harvest, which makes lentil and other gluten-free pastas. Annie’s Organic Vegan Mac can also be found at there as well to satisfy your vegan boxed mac and cheese needs.
Vegan Milk, Yogurt, Cheese, and Butter
Target has a whole slew of vegan dairy-free products to choose from. They’ve got a popular brands of non-dairy milks, like Silk, Almond Breeze, So Delicious Dairy Free, and Califia Farms, plus lesser-known ones, like MALK Organics, which has a pecan milk, along with Ripple Foods, which makes pea milk, which has 50% more calcium than cow’s milk and even contains 32mg of DHA Omega-3s per serving. Target carries plenty of plant-based yogurts, as well, from Silk, So Delicious, and Kite Hill. There are both unsweetened and sweetened varieties, with flavors such as vanilla, mango, and strawberry. And just when you thought that was already a lot to offer, Target additionally sells vegan butters and cheeses from Miyoko’s Creamery.
Target has so many different grains to choose from—couscous, oats, quinoa (in the sprouted form as well), various grain medleys, lots of different rices, and plenty more.
You can easily find baking ingredients, like flour (regular and gluten-free), vanilla extract, oils, baking powder, spices for all your baking needs. Applesauce, ground flaxseed, and chia seeds, which work as impressive egg replacements, are available too. Plus, Target even has vegan baking chocolate.
Target is a mecca for meat alternatives, with several brands stocked, such as Gardein, Beyond Meat, Tofurky, Field Roast, Lightlife, Upton’s Naturals, and Hilary’s. From vegan fish, to ground beef, chicken tenders, deli meats, burgers, and more, the vegan meat offerings are seemingly endless.
