You guys might not know by the way I torture myself with foods containing dairy, like, all the time but I am lactose intolerant. I’ve been trying my best to find snacks that don’t contain dairy but still taste GOOD. It’s been a pretty tough journey… almost every delicious thing in the world contains some kind of dairy in it. Even most brands/flavors of POTATO CHIPS. Crazy, right?!
But… if you do read my Recipe Reviews, you may have noticed that we NEVER cook with dairy products.
Luckily, I have been able to find a handful of snacks that are actually REALLY tasty but, never will I say that these are better than your regular dairy-filled treats.
Nature’s Bakery – Honey & Oat Bars in All the Flavors
If you’re a fan of Kellogg’s Nutri Grain Bars, you will LOVE these. This dairy-free version is the only snack on this list that I’d truly say is better than the dairy version. These are organic with no high fructose corn syrup so they’re loads better for you, too. While I highly recommend these Honey & Oat Bars by Nature’s Bakery, I do NOT recommend their brownies!
Skinny Pop – Microwave Popcorn in Sea Salt
There’s not one single other microwave popcorn that doesn’t contain dairy in its ingredients besides this one. The container that this popcorn pops in is SO cool. It’s all flat and cardboard then, it turns into a box shape just like in the photo. We did melt a little Earth Balance vegan butter on top and we also had to add just a few more dashes of Himalayan Pink Salt but, after all that, it tasted spectacular!!
Back To Nature – Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Mmm, mmm, good!! You won’t miss the dairy in these at all and they don’t taste like clay, not even the after taste! These taste like straight-up chocolate chip cookies… and who doesn’t love those?! Even my boyfriend will eat these when I buy them.
Good Thins – The Potato One in Spinach & Garlic
These are wonderful. They’re light and crispy. It’s spinach & garlic flavored so I would never assume that they’d need dairy in them in the first place but trust me, for a lot of other brands– something like this would definitely contain dairy.
Bear Naked – Granola Bites in Peanut Butter & Honey
Ooh, these are so chewy and delicious!! I love them, they’re healthy and tasty!! I also tried their other flavor: Chocolate & Sea Salt which was okay but I’d never buy it again over this one.
Enjoy Life – Soft Baked Cookies in Double Chocolate Brownie
These do have a little bit of a weirdo taste to them, they taste like they’re missing something (probably dairy, right?) but they’re still edible and decent compared to other dairy-free cookies I’ve tried. They’re good enough to satisfy your sweet tooth and you won’t have to force yourself to quit eating them. One or two is enough. I never even want a third one.
Lehi Roller Mills – Double Fudge Brownie Mix
It’s super tough to find any boxed baked goods that don’t already have dairy in them or that don’t tell you to add some into the mix. Sometimes, I crave a warm, sweet treat so one day, I desperately read the boxes of all the mixes in the baking aisle until I found this one!! Not only is it completely dairy-free but, they also use wheat in these and you can’t even tell. They’re moist and fudgy, just perfect, they are! You’ll love ’em, too!! I know it!!
Kettle Brand – Potato Chips in Jalapeño
Jalapeño flavored potato chips are by far my favorite but, nearly every other brand for some reason adds dairy into theirs. Kettle Brand potato chips only include dairy when it’s supposed to… like when the flavor is Parmesan Garlic or something. If it’s BBQ, Dill Pickle, Salt & Vinegar etc. they’re all dairy-free!! I couldn’t even believe how hard it was to find these gems. Potato chips are so important to me, I almost put this one in the Dairy-Free Substitutions post! ;D
Are you dairy-free or vegan?? If so, please, fill me in on what you’re snackin’ on!!
