With supermarkets catering more and more to the growing vegan population, making the switch is becoming increasingly easier.

But did you know there are some products in the regular aisles at the supermarket that are vegan, accidentally?

So you can get your snack on and not feel like you’re missing out living a lifestyle sans meat, eggs and dairy.

  1. Cottees Thick & Rich Chocolate Flavoured Topping
  2. What’s the best thing to eat on a sweltering hot day? Ice cream generously drizzled with Chocolate Topping, of course. Cottees Thick & Rich Chocolate Topping is decadently sweet, with no milk in sight.

  3. So Good Ice Cream
  4. If you're asking where to find dairy-free ice cream to pour the Chocolate Topping over, then So Good have the answer -- with their creamy Vanilla Bliss and Chocolate Bliss Ice Creams made from soy milk.

  5. Kellogg’s Coco Pops, Nutri-Grain, Corn Flakes, Rice Bubbles and Sultana Bran
  6. The amount of classic Aussie breakfast cereals that are vegan is surprising and, quite frankly, it just makes us want to dig into a big bowl of Coco Pops.

  9. Oreos Original
