Okay, I have to say as far as vegan options go, it wasn’t too exciting. There are plenty of staple items at great prices, so if I had a Trader Joe’s nearby I might buy produce, bread, super cheap almond and coconut milk, and those kinds of items there instead of Meijer. I was kind of bummed because I heard Trader Joe’s was coming out with their own vegan cheese, but it turned out to be a lactose free kind that contains casein (a dairy byproduct). Oh well. I only tried a few things, and took pictures of some stuff I wished I could buy but didn’t have time to eat. So here it is!
Snack-O, crunchy corn rings flavored with sweet onion seasoning. And they’re also vegan. Since Funyuns were a favorite snack of mine as a kid, I had to try these. They were so addicting, Zohr and I couldn’t stop eating them in the car on our way home. We could taste that onion seasoning for at least a couple hours afterwards, too, which was less pleasant but still totally worth it. I highly recommend the Snack-Os, just try not to pig out on them.
I was told I’d regret it if I didn’t buy more than one bag of the Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels. Who doesn’t love peanut butter and pretzels? I wouldn’t say these taste better than any other kind I’ve had, but they made me a lot happier since they are WAY cheaper than any other kind I’ve had. I wish Trader Joe’s would rip off more items I love 🙂 I bought two bags, but probably should have bought 3 or 4. D’oh!
I also tried a frozen cheeseless pizza, and veggie burgers. I’ll do a separate post for those, and in the very near future I’ll tell you the two snacks you should combine for the best treat EVER. More Austin still to come!!
