Following a vegan or plant-based diet doesn't mean you are restricted to bland, boring foods. In fact, there are so many vegan snacks on the market today that are full of flavour and contain no animal derivatives.
So, whether you want to indulge in a savoury snack or satisfy your sweet tooth, banish your mid-afternoon munchies with our collection of delicious and vegan snacks. From crisps and popcorn to vegan chocolate bars and sweets, we have snacks for every taste and occasion.
Is it unhealthy to snack?
Adding snacks to your diet can help you get through a busy workday, a long road trip or an all-night study session by increasing your energy levels and helping you last longer between meals.
Snacking gets a bad rap, but it can help maintaining a healthy, balanced diet. Keeping the hunger pangs at bay throughout the day can help stop you from overeating at mealtimes by allowing you to feel fuller and preventing the need to overindulge.
How to tell if a snack is healthy
Whilst snacking can be beneficial for your diet, it's essential to choose healthier snack options, like those that are low in sugar or low calorie.
There should be enough calories in your snack to satisfy you until your next meal but eating too many calories can lead to weight gain. So instead, opt for low-calorie snacks with no added sugar to satisfy your cravings.
Luckily, you can still enjoy a tasty vegan treat without feeling guilty with Holland & Barrett's selection of healthier snacks.
The best vegan sweets

There is nothing artificial here. And as well as being vegan, this bar is also gluten and wheat free and contains no added sugar. Contains natural occurring sugars. Perfect for guilt-free snacking!
