Jerry Ng, Designer
Right now, you can find Jerry snacking on Little Sesame Hummus. Made with regeneratively farmed chickpeas, this dip brand is both eco-friendly and delicious! While all flavors are equally good, Jerry is currently digging the Herby Jalapeño and Caramelized Onion Little Sesame Hummus. For our adventurous readers and eaters, Jerry encourages topping your hummus with some Fly by Jing Chili Crisp inspired by their recent collaboration. You don’t have to tell us twice—we’re on it!

Creatively described by Allie as the lovechild of nostalgic pizza-flavored Pringles, cheesy Ritz Bitz, and crunchy pretzels, the Quinn Snacks Plant-Based Cheezy Pizzeria Style Filled Nuggets are such a vibe! These gluten-free, vegan bites are the perfect spring nosh. Snack away at the beach, on a road trip, or on your apartment balcony while enjoying the weather.

Give me an opportunity and I’ll talk your ear off about how much I love these LOVO Hazelnutmilk Chocolate Bars. Not only do these bars make the perfect after-dinner treat and midday pick-me-up, but they are also great for baking and making s’mores. Need I say more? Long story short, this ultra-creamy, Swiss-made vegan chocolate is a must-try VegOut staff pick!

A bag of Kelly’s Gourmet Cheezy Garlic Croutons never lasts more than a day in Alejandra’s house. Girl, same. Made with sourdough bread, vegan butter, spices, and Gourmet Cheezy Parm, these savory, crunchy bites are a comfort staple! Alejandra likes to add them to salads and soups but also enjoys snacking on them straight from the bag.

As one of her favorite on-the-go snacks, Victoria loves to bring Blake’s Seed-Based Original Krispy Treats when she’s out and about. Packed with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds, these nostalgic snacks aren’t just fun, they are nutritious too! These nut-free, individually wrapped snacks come in Birthday Cake and Chocolate Chip flavors, too! Don’t mind if we do.
