Watch your chocolate! Susan, help me here. You've got to be careful with chocolate and candy. Unless you specifically buy vegan chocolate, you'll get dairy. Many candies also contain gelatin - gross!! Watch your empty calories, but if you need to snack, this may help guide you. However, read the disclaimer!! You will still have to read the label on any prepared/packaged food item unless it bears the vegan symbol or states that it is vegan. You don't need empty calories. Grab a handful of walnuts, almonds, or pistachios; have a cup of fresh blueberries, strawberries, or any fruit. Edamame is also very good. Often take some to work as a snack. Thoughts, Susan?
I'm not a sweet or package snack person, so not much help, but do buy carob chips every now and then. When I feel like chips, Terra chips has several varieties. Two that I really like are the exotic originals and sweet potato. Check out Terrachips.com. Safeway has wonderful fruit sorbets that are a great addition in smoothies.
