10 Yummy Trader Joe’s Vegan and Vegetarian Munchies

Trader Joe's Vegan and Vegetarian products

Back in 2018, we took our first “legit” trip to Trader Joe’s. We asked our closed Facebook Group, The Peas and Carrots Society for some of their top Trader Joe’s Vegan and Vegetarian products and they did not disappoint!

  1. Chicken-Less Chicken Mandarin Orange Morsels (Vegan)

If you’re looking to add some great flavor to your next stir fry, try some of these Chicken-less Mandarin Orange Morsels! Tangy and sweet, these quickly became one of our freezer staples.


  1. Trader Joe’s Coconut Creamer (Vegan)

I drink coffee every day and like having it with cream.  As a Lacto-ovo vegetarian, I was okay with using Half and Half but the rise of some great vegan creamers including this one from TJ’s makes it easy to switch!


  1. Trader Joe’s Soy Chorizo (Vegan)

In all honesty, I haven’t had a soy chorizo brand I haven’t liked yet. This one from TJ’s is great for breakfast tacos or to mix in with some beans for added protein and flavor.

I remember having a variety of these almond windmill cookies as a kid and these from TJ’s hit the spot!
