Are Sunchips Vegan? Checkout the vegan flavors (2023)

Unfortunately due to containing dairy (and honey) the vast majority of Sunchips flavors are currently non-vegan, however not all of the other flavors are non-vegan.

In fact, only one of Sunchips current offerings are vegan, that flavor is the Original (classic) flavor.

With that being said, that means all other 6 flavors are non-vegan. Those non-vegan flavors of Sunchips are called: French Onion, Garden Salsa, Harvest Cheddar, and Chili Lime Flavor.

Those 6 above flavors are non-vegan due to them all containing dairy, and in some cases, they also contain honey.

vegan sunchips original

Unfortunately, as mentioned in the opening part of the article, that’s the only vegan flavor Sunchips currently has. All the other flavors contain at least dairy and/or honey in them, making them non-vegan. They are pretty good though.

Are Sunchips Healthy?

They definitely aren’t a health-food, but they’re WAY healthier than most chips. They don’t have all the nasty preservatives of many chip brands, and they also don’t have as much processed fat in them, but they definitely aren’t on the same level as fruits, vegetables, grains, or stews when it comes to healthiness.

They also do contain a decent amount of fiber due to containing some whole-grains, however I wouldn’t recommend eating them over a nice piece of fruit. But you could have worse as a snack than a handful of classic original-flavored sunchips. When it comes to the other flavors, due to containing dairy, I’d say they’re definitely unhealthy and shouldn’t be eaten.

Due to containing dairy and honey, the vast majority of Sunchips flavors are not vegan. The only vegan flavor is the Original (classic) flavor.

The Garden Salsa flavored Sunchips contains Milk, Cheese and Buttermilk, thus they are not vegan.

Yes, the original sunchips is free of animal by-products, thus they are safe for vegans.

Nope, they have sour cream, milk and cheese (mozzarella & Cheddar both) in them, thus they are not vegan-friendly.
