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.

These individually wrapped vegan cheeses are great as a stand-alone snack or when paired with crackers, fruit, veggies, or nuts.
