Question Vegan by Day Vegetarian by Night..

Hello all!
I've been doing pretty good eating my main meals all vegan (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) but then comes my snacking throughout the day or night pretty much bored eating or cravings. They're almost never vegan, like i'll have ice cream, or chocolate bars but they're never vegan and it bugs me a bit, the only vegan junk food i have it oreos but I've lessened eating cookies because they just make me feel blah. I'm 15 so I can't just stop eating junk food because us teenagers need it to survive lol, but i'd like to have healthier junk and make it vegan but the problem is where i live they don't sell vegan chocolate bars that often and when they do they contain nuts which 'm allergic to and I don't wanna die from eating them it's not easy being a vegan in training who is allergic to nuts. Anyway I guess what i'm asking is how do I eat vegan junk food and not the nasty dairy egg fillied kind? And It's hard to avoid since I have a huge family (10 siblings plus my parents and grandma) who all love their junk food too lol and hate vegan stuff so I can't hide it or throw it out to stop myself.

My husband should be answering this since he's the junk food junkie lol, but I'll try

For him it's chips and chocolate that are his weakness. He was super bummed to discover a lot of his favourites had dairy in them. Fortunately, it's pretty easy to identify the ones that have them, just check the allergen statement for milk/eggs... obviously anything with cheese is out LOL. Usually the more natural or artisan varieties of chips (Hardbite, Kettle) have a salt 'n vinegar that doesn't use milk.

In the chocolate realm, you can generally find lots of different dark chocolates that are dairy free, but again, just check the allergen statements, particularly if you're allergic to nuts.

Dad's oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (in Canada) are vegan friendly. They're way better than Oreos! ^_^

If you're feeling adventurous, why not try making some of your own "junk" foods? It's way healthier, and way tastier... plus you always know what's in your food. There's tons of awesome recipes online, and I bet you'd be way happier with your own cookies, cupcakes or snack bars than something you buy in a store ^_^ Good luck!

Where in Canada do you live?
I'm from southern Ontario and got some vegan dark chocolate at Shoppers Drug Mart -- very mainstream store. The one I got does have almonds because I like it and can eat it, but they also had vegan chocolate that was nut-free.
