*AD. These products were gifted to me, but all views are my own.
When you hear about vegan food, most people think about faux meat! However, there are more snacks and sweets available nowadays, which you wouldn’t necessarily associate with meat or animals and they taste absolutely delicious! When I was researching vegan snacks, not only was I surprised by how many options there were, but how many products contained meat derivatives, that you wouldn’t realise were in there! Researching for this post has made me look more closely at the ingredients of the products that I am eating, so that I can make better and healthier choices.
Here are 4 different brands you can discover:
Food Of The Gods – Raw Chocolate
Food of the Gods is run by Dal, who lives in the town of St Just in Cornwall, with his wife, daughter, their dog and cat. Dal was inspired to make raw chocolate because of his love of chocolate and the fact that all the chocolate in the supermarkets was full of: sugar, fat, flavourings and very little cacoa content. He wanted to show people that his chocolate could retain all of the health benefits, which was great for him to be able to share with his clients as he worked for the NHS mental health department. Raw chocolate, or cacoa, is made from unroasted cacao beans, which helps to protect more of the nutrients within the cocoa bean. Cocoa has been used for thousands of years for its energising and health giving properties. Raw cacoa contains so many nutrients and chemicals that can improve physical health and aid wellbeing.
Coconut Milk Chocolate: The chocolate contains: organic cacoa solids, organic cacoa butter, organic coconut milk powder and organic date syrup (10%).
Spiced Organic Chocolate: This chocolate contains: organic cacoa solids, organic cacoa butter, organic date syrup (4%), sweet orange oil, Ceylon cinnamon and nutmeg.
Peppermint and Cacoa Nibs: This chocolate contains: organic cacoa solids, organic cacoa butter, organic date syrup (4%), peppermint oil and organic cacoa nibs.
Food of the Gods uses raw, organic and fair trade ingredients. All the packaging is 100% compostable and there is free p&p on ALL orders in the UK. How awesome is that?
These bars are delicious! I had never tried raw chocolate before, but I was really pleasantly surprised. I love the unique flavours that you can order and I really enjoyed these 3 flavours, which I was kindly gifted. It’s great that I can enjoy this treat whilst knowing that it is good for me! It’s great that Dal’s business is using compostable packaging, so it’s not harmful to the planet. You can find Dal on Facebook and Instagram.
Ten Acre – Hand Cooked Crisps
The aim of launching Ten Acre was to provide enjoyable snacks that are high in fibre that can be enjoyed by everyone no matter their dietary requirements.
Ten Acre crisps are made using potatoes grown in the Ten Acre field at Fairfield’s Farm. The farm is family-run and has been running for three generations. The crisps are hand cooked on the farm to the highest standards which is why they are BRC (Grade AA) accredited. All the energy on the farm is from sustainable technologies. Even the extra sunflower oil goes to making biofuel.
Ten Acre produces the following flavours: Salt, Salt & Vinegar, Cheese & Onion, Sweet Chilli, Hickory BBQ and Sweet & Sour. You can buy these crisps from Amazon, Holland & Barrett, Waitrose and The Vegankind Supermarket. You can follow them on: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
I was gifted the Cheese & Onion, Salt & Vinegar, Sweet Chilli and Hickory BBQ. I love the packaging with the little story titles such as ‘When the Chilli Got Sweet’ and ‘The Story of When Cheese Met The Onion’! These vegan crisps are gluten, dairy and MSG free.
These crisps taste so good! I love how thick and extra crunchy they are, so much better than regular crisps I have brought in the supermarkets! I have eaten a lot of them already! The flavours are perfect and not too overpowering. I would definitely recommend that you try them.
Sugar Noms – Sweets & Chocolate
Sugar Noms is owned and run by vegans, so you know that your sweets are guaranteed to not have any nasties in them. All Sugar Noms has 100% recyclable and eco-packaging, so it is not harmful for the environment. All their sweets are dairy-free and have clear allergen labels on their products.
Sugar Noms offer packages for wedding parties, offer letterbox-friendly boxes and you can even check out their Valentine’s range. You can find them on Facebook and Instagram.

I was kindly gifted the Original Mix pouch, the Bonbon Variety pouch and a Special Edition pouch. I was in sweetie heaven with this huge selection of vegan goodies that I could enjoy guilt free! They tasted delicious, even better as they were vegan! I am a sucker for a jelly sweet and was delighted to find vegan options that don’t compromise on flavour. My favourites were the fizzy sweets and they’ve been very popular in my house! I recommend looking at their website because there are so many options to choose from.
Doisy & Dam
Doisy & Dam are a B Corp, a business committed to being a force for good and dedicated to doing right by their customers, suppliers and everyone they meet and work with. Doisy & Dam have 2 rules when it comes to their ingredients; firstly, they are palm oil free and secondly, they use naturally grown ingredients including cacoa sources from Columbia.
All their products are palm oil free and only work with people and companies that champion equal pay, good working conditions and respect for the environment. You can find Doisy & Dam on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
I was sent the Dark Chocolate D&D’s Share Bag, Dark Chocolate & Lucuma Chocolate bars, Goji & Orange Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Maca, Vanilla & Cacoa bars and Dark Chocolate & Almond Nuttercups.
These chocolate flavours are ones I had not tried before and I was impressed with such a large range of flavours for everyone to enjoy. I love how bright and fun the packaging is. I really enjoyed these chocolates as they were a perfect accompaniment for a cosy, duvet day! The added bonus of the chocolate being both guilt free and environmentally-friendly, made the chocolate even more enjoyable. Knowing that I was only putting natural ingredients in my body made the experience even tastier! My favourite was the D&D’s Dark Chocolate Drops. If you are looking for some chocolate bundles, I would highly recommend Doisy & Dam.
At Fairfields farm the families have been farming in East Anglia for three generations. They harvest: potatoes, maize and rye from their farmland.
They cold store, wash, grade and bag 12 different potato varieties, which are then sold to wholesalers and retailers across the UK. Like Ten Acre, Fairfield Farm hand cook their crisps to the highest standard, which is why they are BRC (Grade AA) accredited.
Not only do Fairfields Farms deliver locally, they also deliver both nationally and internationally. They have exported to around 20 countries including: USA, Canada, Germany and Norway. They produce 6 flavours as well as lentil crisps and much more. You can find Fairfields Farm on: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
I was kindly gifted these flavours: Sea Salt & Black Pepper, Sea Salt & Aspall Cyder Vinegar, Lightly Sea Salted, Bacon & Tomato, Roast Rib of Beef, Cheese & Onion and Sweet Chilli.
I love the Bacon & Tomato and the Sea Salt & Black Pepper. These are not flavours that I have seen very often and they were totally delicious! The crisps are super crunchy and full of flavour. The packaging feels really high quality and I love the logo too. My household are definitely crisp fans and we weren’t disappointed! I highly recommend these snacks which are both vegan and gluten free, so they are suitable for all dietary requirements.
These are some lovely snacks, sweets and chocolates to enjoy. There are so many no gluten and no dairy options so you don’t miss out on the yummy treats. Check out this non dairy and non gluten chocolate cake recipe. If you try this recipe share in the comments how it went.
Have you tried any of these brands before? I’d love to hear in the comments.

I really shouldn’t read posts like this as the temptation is too much! All look like great sweets and brands and I shall be checking out Sugar Noms later this evening I think!
I’m a hard-core omnivore, though I have expanded my diet in terms of vegetables of late. My problem with vegan food is the cost – often twice as much as their regular counterparts. My other issue is their reliance of nuts as I’m deadly allergic. That said, I’ve bought vegan mayo this week and am interested in testing oat milk.
I have brought oat milk to try as I think my body is hating dairy at the moment. I definitely recommend checking out the crisps and sweets.
I haven’t tried any of these brands but they sound/look delicious! Will deffo try these out whenever I seem them x

This is such a great selection! I used to get Doisy and Dam were I used to work and it was always such a great treat, now I really want to try their nut cups! Fairfield Crisps are one of my top favourite crips brands: the cider vinegar are to die for as well as the sweet chilli, would really love to have a packet laying around at home! Thanks for sharing Lauren x
If you like those you will love Ten Acre crisps also!
These are some incredible suggestions! I’ve been loving trying new vegan snacks this veganuary. I really like the doisy and dam chocolate, there so delicious x
They are so yummy aren’t they! I recommend these as they are delicious. Thank you for reading and Kayleigh x
Jenny in Neverland says
Doisy and Dam sound great – I’ve heard a few people talk about those! 🙂 I’ve been trying Ombar raw vegan chocolate lately in their coconut and vanilla flavour and it’s SO good!
That sounds really yummy. I definitely recommend trying these others!
You’re right, I hear vegan and I wouldn’t think of this kind of confectionary. I love sweets, I have a ridiculous sweet tooth!
I have tried a fair few of these products I am pleased to say and I really enjoyed them. Great selection here x x
Thank you Claire. X
Ellie Phillips says
I’ve gotta say the daisy & dom packaging is so cute! I don’t think I’ve ever tried any vegan sweets or snacks but id love to try some and see how different they taste x
You wouldn’t even think they were or weren’t vegan. They tasted so good!
This post has made me hungry! I’ve heard of Doisy and Dam and I like the look of their chocolate!
I like the look of these other vegan sweets and snacks also x

Wow these look gorgeous! Thank you for sharing these choices, I can’t wait to check some of them out 🙂
Adventures of Elle says
These all sound absolutely delicious! I’m especially interested in the raw chocolate. I’m also loving the support for small businesses! Wonderful post as always x
Thank you Elle.
Ooo never heard of these brands before, they do look unreal. I have such a sweet tooth its insane but I am more of a chocolate kind of girl but maybe with them being vegan it might turn me. Will definitely have to check it out x
One of the most challenging parts about having so many bizarre food allergies is that I can’t typically enjoy vegan products because they include the things I’m allergic to as substitutes. However, a few of these sound like I’d be able to snack on them and that makes me really happy. Thanks for sharing!
That is great to hear. I hope you manage to find these suitable for you.
wow these all look really great. In the last couple of years I’ve incorporated vegan food into my diet, I even take vegan vitamins. I haven’t become a vegan, but I like the ingredients, in the last year especially I stopped eating a lot of anything that had preservatives and leaned more into natural only.
My son has been a vegan for the last few years and I’m going to forward this blog post to him 🙂
thank you really informative xoxo
That is great you have brought more of a vegan lifestyle into your diet. I am the same as you. Oh wow, I hope your son finds this post really helpful. Thank you for reading and commenting. Xx

I’d be in heaven with all of these treats! I love the Ten Acre crisps, especially their cheese & onion flavour (I was over the moon when I discovered it). Thanks for sharing this list, I’ll keep an eye out for the other brands ♡

I’d love to find these here in the US as they all sound so good! Luckily I’ve got a few types of vegan sweets and gummies to keep me going that I can get in my local store. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you for reading and commenting.
On literally every item, I kept thinking that I wanted to try it, then scrolled to the next and was like “THAT TOO!” These all sound incredible and I love the ethos behind all of these companies. Definitely ones I’ll be looking into – thanks!
I hope you get to try them. Use the sugar Noms discount before the end of January and you get a free gift with your order x
I’m vegetarian, but I often buy vegan snacks because there’s a lot of candy with gelatin & other snacks with animal ingredients. I haven’t tried any of these brands before, but Sugar Noms & the Fairfields Farm chips look yummy!
Make sure you take advantage of Sugar Noms as the discount is for January and with every order you get a free gift
Thank you for reading. I have been blocked from commenting on your blog 🥺
Kelly Diane says
I love the names of the flavours for the Ten Acre crisps. They sound really delicious and I definitely want to try them myself.
Everyone is talking about those nom chocolates!! I’ve probably said them wrong lol. I need to try some of these, I really struggle to find dairy free chocolates xx
Hannah Workman says
Just been catching up on your blog and was lovely to see this!!! I haven’t tried these certain ones but I do only eat vegan chocolate and anything that hasn’t got dairy or wheat in so this was nice to see. Was lovely to catch up on your blog posts too!!
Oh that is great! I hope you are able to try a few of these!
Shyla Elza says

Fransic verso says
I haven’t tried these but they seem so yummy. It’s good that dal started his own and now on the road to a big success.
It is a great idea for a business isn’t it!
Ryan K Biddulph says
Everything looks fabulous Lauren. My wife has been a vegetarian for 14 years; me, for about 4 months. Vegan and veggie food is tasty, nutritious and wholesome. Especially vegan sweets, so filling and delicious! We go to this vegan spot in Ubud Bali that makes about the best vegan pies in the world. Especially the key lime. Hopefully we get to return soon.
I enjoy veggie food and I enjoy these vegan treats!
Jaya Avendel says
I have not tried any of these brands before and I can tell I am missing out judging by the flavors and (yes) the colorful packaging. I love the sound of the peppermint and cacoa nib chocolate and the Sugar Nums!
Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Thank you for reading and commenting. Hopefully you can try some soon
