The Vegan Products We Can’t Get Enough of in 2018
It has been an incredible year for vegan products, with a variety of new offerings from some of our favorite brands and increased distribution of some of our favorite products. Here are the vegan products we can’t get enough of in 2018.
Miyoko’s Kitchen Vegan Butter
Made with organic coconut oil and cashews, this amazing plant-based butter is cholesterol-free, non-GMO, and perfect in all your favorite recipes. Plus, the product is more widely available than ever before. You can have it shipped nationwide, and it is available at some grocers, including Trader Joe’s stores and select Whole Foods locations!
Beyond Meat Beyond Sausage
These new sausages from Beyond Meat come in three flavors: Beer Brat, Sweet Italian, and Hot Italian. Sold at Whole Foods stores nationwide, this new offering sets itself apart from competitors with a plant-based casing made from alginate. Plus, one Beyond Sausage link has 14 percent more protein, 26 percent less sodium, and 38 percent less saturated fat than its animal-based counterpart.
Häagen-Dazs Dairy-Free Ice Cream Bars
Earlier this year, Häagen-Dazs expanded their vegan line with two new dairy-free ice cream bars. The Coconut Caramel Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge flavors are made with a base of coconut cream and peanut butter, respectively.
Gardein Skillet Meals
This long-anticipated line from Gardein boasts several varieties: Chick’n Florentino, Asian Chick’n Fried Rice, Rigatoni n’ Sausage, and Chick’n Fiesta. And as the name suggests, these ready-made meals just need to be tossed in a skillet and warmed up!

You won’t miss the eggs or the butter in this #Vegan Banana Bread… It’s delightfully moist with crunchy #walnuts that provide a charming contrast to the soft crumb—an ideal textural context for the sweet flavor of #bananas. Slice the one-pound loaf as thick or thin as you want and warm it gently in the toaster to accompany your morning cup, or afternoon nosh. Find it in our #Bakery section. — #traderjoes
Just last month, news broke that Trader Joe’s had released a new vegan banana bread. Sold for $3.99 a loaf, this vegan banana bread is literally everything you want—dense, sweet, moist, and chock-full of walnuts.
Morningstar Farms Vegan Nuggets
Morningstar Farms is making an effort to increase the number of vegan products they sell, and most recently the brand decided to ditch the dairy and eggs in several of their chicken alternatives, including new vegan nuggets and patties!
Vegan Just Egg
Made from mung beans, this plant-based egg alternative looks and scrambles up like traditional eggs but without the cholesterol, horrific animal suffering, and other problems associated with consuming animal products.
