    I Ranked The 20 Best Vegetarian Trader Joe's Snacks So You Don't Have To

    Because you can't just eat mochi ice cream for the rest of your life.

    Hi, I'm Laken. When I became vegetarian almost a decade ago, I practically lived on Oreos and fries. Well, I still do — but not because I can't find plenty of snack options! Fortunately, that struggle is over. More stores than ever are stocking their shelves with veggie-friendly snacks.

    My favorite? Trader Joe's.

    The uncertainty of knowing which vegetarian snacks are actually good ends now!!! As a self-proclaimed TJ's aficionado (I live and breathe Everything But The Bagel seasoning), I've conclusively ranked the Top 20 Trader Joe's items from "pretty good" to "the best," and you can't disagree with me.

    But seriously... if you have other thoughts, propose your own top snacks in the comment section. 😇
