Snacks

Unlike other items, snacking has no season. The best part? Any food can technically be a snack. An energy bar grabbed on-the-go or even sliced fruit paired with a spread counts as a midday munch.

Naysayers like to say that vegans find it challenging due to a limited choice, but we're here to crush that myth.

In fact the snack universe is constantly introducing new innovative vegan options as the plant-based market skyrockets. Brands like NOMO and LoveRaw are bringing healthier versions of chocolate while a whole category of accidental vegan snacks like Oreos, Sour patch kids and Ritz crackers have always been found in grocery stores.

Whether you're craving a crunchy, creamy, or sweet snack, a few of our staff members have 10 snacks to recommend. So forget about that boring bag of chips — here’s our list of delicious alternatives.

Uncle Saba’s Poppadoms

“When I first saw Uncle Saba's Poppadoms in a gas station, I initially dismissed them. Their packaging, to be honest, looks very dated. But I love poppadoms in general, and I gave into curiosity and picked up a tube of their original flavor.

I think I finished the entire tube in one sitting. They were that good. I have since tried several flavours and they are all addictively delicious. Love that these are high in protein and fibre and are low in carbs and saturated fats. And of course, love that this is a Singaporean brand.” - @aunkoh, Director of Content and Communications

LoveRaw’s Cre&m Filled Wafer Bars

Loveraw

“This is the perfect on-the-go snack! Can’t even tell it’s vegan! This tastes exactly like the classic Kinder Bueno bars. So addictive. I love the hazelnut chocolatey crunch. Best eaten chilled! Thank you @simhazel for introducing this awesome snack bar to me.” - @summerong, Creative Designer

Lotus Biscoff Biscuit

“I once thought Lotus Biscoff (original) was “too good” to be vegan. How bold of me. These crunchy shortcrust biscuits taste like Christmas morning, with hints of caramel, cinnamon and ginger. Their spread seems like a richer, crushed version of their cookies and TBH I like their spread more. Note: their chocolate versions contain dairy. If you’re buying these biscuits, dip them in coffee!” - @chevonnecheng, Senior Manager in Social Media & Content

Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Caramel Cluster

Ben & J

“It’s an ice cream flavor for every occasion, but you wouldn’t want to share it. I know I don’t. The best part? Non-dairy deliciousness. These are made with almond milk meaning lower fat content than whole milk, but equal amounts of chocolatey, caramel swirly goodness.

I’m usually not a big fan of peanuts in ice cream, but the combination of salted caramel swirls, peanuts and fudge chunks nestled within the rich chocolate ice cream base is simply chef’s kiss. Every bite is packed with flavor and coated with bliss.” - @claudben, Social Media Content Producer

Clif’s Crunchy Peanut Bars

Clif

“Clif's Crunchy Peanut Butter Bars were the snack of my childhood. I used to eat these before tennis practice, and they honestly tasted so good that I'd try to find excuses to eat them after practice too.

To this day, they're an incredibly convenient and well-rounded source of protein and good fats and are the perfect portion size to tide you over between meals. These bars taste like peanut butter fudge, yet somehow aren't too overpowering - and are available readily at most supermarkets - meaning they're accessible when you most need a snack on the go.” - @lianneadamopoulos, Associate Director of Sales & Business Development

Bibigo Crispy Seaweed

bibigo

"I could eat this every day! It is the best way to eat seaweed, as they're so tasty and crunchy, making it perfect for a midday snack. The sesame flavor is delicious. This seaweed snack is versatile too, as they work well as toppings on rice bowls or salads.

Although I wish the package would have more seaweed. They can improve by offering eco-friendly packaging as they use too much plastic even per serving." - @heymacarena, Growth & Community Associate

Wasa Crispbread

Wasa

“Swedish “knäckebröd”, what’s not to like about it? Crisp, with the taste of rye and reminds me of home. Goes great with any kind of condiment really. In this case slices of avocado make for a great snack, or “fika” as we call it.” - @davnil, Vice-President, Engineering

Ooh Mala Cassava Chips

ooh

“As a serial snacker, I tend to lean towards savory snacks. Growing up, I was used to heading to the night market (also known as Pasar Malam in Bahasa) in Kuala Lumpur and sometimes grabbing a bag of cassava chips there. I'm also rather fond of mala and spice in general.

So, when I realized there was a product that combined the two, I loved every bit of it. It's like having mala on the go. These chips are made from cassava, which feels lighter than regular potato chips, so you can quickly get through a bag. Best of all is that it's a local product!” - @jashment, Community Outreach Analyst

Magnum’s Dairy Free Almond

Magnum

“This is honestly one of my favorite ice creams. In my opinion, it tastes better than the regular Magnum dairy options. The package has three ice-creams, and needless to say, I use the excuse that they are too small to eat all three. This product deserves a place as a proper dessert at dinner parties.

Everyone I know has tried it and shares the same excitement. Flavor-wise, there is a good balance of sweet and salty, with a subtle hint of caramel. The dark chocolate melts nicely and tastes great! The outer coating can melt quickly, so you've got to eat fast (melts quickly in Singapore temperature). This is a must-try for any ice cream lover!”- @lindajazzyjourney, Product Manager

Oatty Bites

Oatty

“I like Oatty Bites with chocolate pieces from this local Singaporean company, Hayley. I like to support local vegan brands, and the pack comes in the right size for one person. It costs a couple of dollars and is available at a lot of supermarkets. This is usually my mid-day snack or something I have when cycling long distances.” - @heruvimdi, Product Manager
