VegOut Staff Picks: Vegan Summer Snacks

Get in on the summer snacking fun and check out our warm-weather favorites.

The temps are rising and our summertime snacks are at the ready. From refreshing kombucha and vegan jerky to gelatin-free gummy candies and cheese-filled pretzels, we’re dishing out our favorite summertime snacks. Want in on the snackable action? Check out our newest edition of VegOut staff picks: vegan summer snacks!

Quinn Cheezy Filled Pretzel Nuggets

Maggie Ortlieb, Founder & CEO

Reminiscent of the cheese-filled Combos she ate as a kid, the Quinn Cheezy Filled Pretzel Nuggets are what Maggie is snacking on this summer. Unlike Combos or the other cheesy snacks of the past, these pretzel bites are both vegan and gluten-free. They’re such a tasty snack, so it’s easy to eat the whole bag in one day.



Trader Joe’s Organic Tahini

Tammie Ortlieb, Managing Editor

Tammie has been mixing up a homemade tahini dressing to pair with her raw veggies. Her summer go-to ingredients are Trader Joe’s Organic Tahini and fresh vegetables from Imperfect Foods. If you’re a whole food snacker like Tammie, you won’t want to miss out on this delicious combination! VegOut staff vegan summer snacks FTW!

Better Booch Golden Pear

Jerry Ng, Designer

This summer, Jerry is sipping the good stuff! Better Booch Golden Pear is packing the on-the-go bubbles for the season. And it’s the perfect drink for a trip to the beach! This refreshing and effervescent kombucha combines turmeric, tulsi, black pepper, pear, and of course, gut-friendly probiotics. Cheers to a happy and healthy summer!

Beyond Meat Jerky

Allie Mitchell, Social Media Director

The new Beyond Meat Jerky has Allie obsessed! Available in Original, Teriyaki, and Hot & Spicy varieties, these kettle-cooked, plant-based jerkies are a great on-the-go option. The jerky even comes in a resealable bag, although you might not need that function if we’re honest. It’s the perfect protein-packed snack for summer road trips and jaunts across Europe.

Hippie Snacks Cheezy Chive Almond Crisps

Anja Grommons, Staff Writer

Hippie Snacks Cheezy Chive Almond Crisps are my current go-to snack—I seriously cannot put them down. Road trip? They’re riding shotgun. Lake day? They’re packed in my beach bag. They are made with simple ingredients like almonds, so it’s no question that they’re one of my mainstay summer snack faves! And I’m keeping these cheesy crackers with me all season long.

Babybel Plant-Based Cheese

Laurie Chin Sayres, Brand Partnerships Manager

As a lover of vegan cheese, Laurie is all about the Babybel Plant-Based Cheese this summer! These individually wrapped vegan cheeses are great as a stand-alone snack or when paired with crackers, fruit, veggies, or nuts. And the best part is, no cows were harmed in the making of this on-the-go nosh.

Katjes Plant-Based Gummies

Victoria Mitchell, Social Media Manager

ISO a sweet treat to enjoy this summer season? Well, look no further. Katjes Plant-Based Gummies are not only Victoria’s summer snack fave, they are free from all animal ingredients—no gelatin here, folks! Available in Sour, Rainbow, and Love & Stars gummy candy varieties, these sweet treats are always a good choice.



Anja Grommons


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.

Must-have products: Ezekiel Bread, Racconto Giardiniera, Pacifica Vegan Collagen Complex Serum, Elina Organics Botanical Cleanser
