And the very first on our list of the best vegan snacks in the UK – or for anyone, really – has to be Oreos. I’ll challenge you to find anyone that doesn’t love them.
Oreo cookies are produced without including any animal products. However, it’s important to note that the brand has stated that since they are made in facilities that also handle milk, there could be very small traces of milk in Oreos.
You can find these for as cheap as 75p in the Sainsbury’s sale.
