18 Treats You Might Not Know Are Dairy-Free

Which isn’t to say they’re good for you. But the lactose-intolerant deserve — no, DEMAND — equal access to junk food.

1. Duncan Hines Brownie Mix

 

Except for the MILK chocolate mix, but that seems self-evident.

2. Nutter Butters

Only an issue for the peanut allergy-afflicted.

3. Sorbet (most brands)

Haagen-Dazs

 

Sorbet, by definition, means no milk or cream. Which doesn’t mean it’s not delicious.

4. Oreos

The “creme” filling in Oreos doesn’t actually involve any cream (it’s mostly canola oil and corn syrup — yum!). N.B. That Oreos are manufactured slightly differently in different places, and if you’ve got a serious milk allergy you may want to double-double check the label. You can get more info on that here.

5. Coconut Bliss Ice Cream

 

To be fair, you probably can guess that this brand is dairy free — but you might not know that it’s really good! Coconut is a great sub for milk in frozen desserts.

6. Tofutti Cuties

Again, you’re not likely to mistake these ice cream sandwiches for the mooing kind, but they’re also a pretty legit alternative.

7. Hershey’s Syrups

Chocolate, Strawberry, Lite, Special Dark, Whoppers, and Double Chocolate Sundae flavored syrups are all dairy-free. So is Chocolate Shell!

8. Nabisco Iced Oatmeal Cookies

What’s in the icing? Hell if I know, but it doesn’t come from a cow.

9. Marshmallows & Marshmallow Creme

 

Corn syrup’s most beautiful children.

10. Graham Crackers and Teddy Grahams

 

If you don’t find delight in tiny cookies shaped like animals, you’re no kind of human being.

11. Dark Chocolate (most brands)

 

Milk chocolate (as the name implies!) probably isn’t a good bet, but the dark stuff is often safe to eat. It’s also less sugary, and thus better for you.

(And you know what marshmallows + graham crackers + chocolate means, right?)

All the s’mores you can eat, my friend.

12. Biscoff Cookie Spread

I’m telling you you can purchase cookies in SPREADABLE FORM and you’re NOT running out the door already?

13. Vienna Fingers

Good old “creme” again.

14. Ready-Made Frosting (most brands)

 

Ingredients found in Betty Crocker “Whipped Butter Cream Frosting”: Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean and Cottonseed Oil, Water, High Maltose Corn Syrup, Corn Starch.

Ingredients NOT found in Betty Crocker “Whipped Butter Cream Frosting”: Butter, cream.

(The label does warn that the frosting still “may contain milk ingredients”; it’s only in tiny trace amounts that could be picked up from the factory, but avoid if you’re hypersensitive.)

15. Lorna Doone Shortbread

Butterlessly buttery.

16. Fig Newmans

Best cookie name of all time.

17. Luigi’s Italian Ice

Don’t worry — all those mysterious *gums* keep it nice and creamy.

18. Pop-Tarts (some flavors)

 

These are the dairy-free flavors:

Apple Strudel
Brown Sugar Cinnamon*
Cinnamon Roll
Raspberry
Strawberry*
Blueberry*
Cherry
Wild Berry

*The frosted versions of Blueberry, Brown Sugar Cinnamon, and Strawberry ARE also safe.
