New Vegan Finds From Expo West I'm Dying To Try

Natural Products Expo West 2019 occurred last week here in Orange County, and while I didn't attend, I have been drooling over the photos fellow vegans have shared of hot new vegan products that dominated the Expo! It is incredible how more and more exciting vegan items are popping up all over the place, and many of them debut at Expo West, where companies exhibit their products in hopes that buyers from grocery stores will decide to stock them on their shelves, investors will help support their expansion, and to generate buzz.

In past years (check out my past coverage of the event HERE), there has been a significant demand for new vegan products and more and more companies with vegan options are showcasing their products at Expo West. This year, veganism has really exploded at Expo West, and I've seen so many incredible new food items that I can't wait to get my claws on! I've collected some of the highlights from others' Instagram posts (big shout-out to all attendees who shared their photos with the world, and an extra special thank you to the VegNews team for their incredibly comprehensive coverage!), check out the exciting new vegan products from Expo West I'm dying to get my claws on:

Pringles for vegans! How awesome do these new chips from Vegan Robs look?!
As a fan of many of their healthier snack products, I am intrigued by these
and hope they come to market soon.

Nom! Can't wait to try these vegan chick'n nuggets from Alpha Foods! These
received rave reviews at Expo, and I can't wait to sink my fangs into these
chickenless nuggets.

Wow, look at these European-style soft cheeses and butter from Wild Brine!
People who tried these at Expo have been raving about the funky cheese
taste and delicious butter. These were the hit of the show and I can't
wait to try them once they make their way to grocery stores.

Hello - new vegan Cheddar Sour Cream chips from Beanfields! I adore all their
current flavors, and can't wait to snack on this (and several other) new flavors
that debuted at Expo.

As an Italian, I am EXTREMELY excited by these deli slices from Good and Green!
Besides the carpaccio, there will also be a prosciutto product as well!

Finally, some vegan French Onion dip from Good Karma! They are also coming
out with a Ranch dip and Sour Cream! I have been waiting for a good vegan dip
option to be released, and this looks like it might be it!

Can't wait to try these new breakfast bowls from Gardein - they have a few
different flavors but this one is the one I have my eye on.

I'm squealing over these salty, bacon-flavored chips made from mushrooms by
Outstanding Foods! They won a best of show award from VegNews, and I
have heard multiple people raving about them (plus their piggy mascot
is adorable), so I cannot wait for these.

Beyond Meat debuted their new Beyond Beef, vegan ground beef, and people have
been going wild over it! Can't wait for this to hit stores soon so I can make
meatballs, sloppy Joe's, tacos, and whatever else I dream up.

OMG these Revele Whipped Vegan Gelato Bars look so good! They debuted a
variety of vegan options, and I have my eye on the strawberry. Not only are
they vegan, but they are also calorie-conscious if you are into that kinda thing.

New vegan cheesecake from Tofurky? Be still my heart!!! These are little mini
cheesecakes with a crumbly crust - they can't come to stores fast enough!

Sweet Earth Foods unleashed a new juicy vegan burger! I'm curious as to how it
stacks up against the Beyond and Impossible burgers, but I'm a fan of Sweet
Earth's vegan offerings so I have high hopes for this one.

I am a big fan of Parmela Creamery's vegan cheeses (go try them if you haven't -
their cheddar slices complete my Beyond Burgers!), so I am all in for this new
vegan ravioli, made with their ricotta cheese.

I love hazelnut anything, and I am so stoked for this spread by Wild Friends! There
are several other vegan "Nutella" offerings out there, but so far I haven't found
one I like. I'm hoping this one changes that.

I am a sucker for birthday cake flavored everything (and sprinkles)! Drooling
over these chocolate-covered cookie dough bites by Better Bites Bakery.

One of my favorite companies, Upton's Naturals, released a new vegan jerky in
several mouth-watering flavors! I can't wait to sink my fangs into the
Pineapple Pink Peppercorn flavor!

What vegan products are you most looking forward to? 

Stay spooky!

  1. All of this looks so good! I am curious to try the new impossible burger. I heard they just revamped the recipe this year. Also, we bought these TVP chunks that are supposed to reconstitute as nuggets. I'm looking forward to seeing if they fry up well.
