Top five ways to get your vegan salted caramel fix

What is ‘basic’ even? Since when did liking things that are awesome become a crime?

Sprinkle a little pumpkin spice into your life these days, and people start making memes about you.

Well, before you go buy some hipster glasses and an alt rock t-shirt in a desperate attempt to seem interesting, do be advised that there’s an equally tasty way to dodge PSL-related criticism.

Salted caramel is still relevant, but it just may be out of style enough that nobody will give you a hard time for liking it. Not that that matters.

Regardless, five vegan salted caramel delights follow, especially helpful for those looking to avoid being the brunt of autumnal jokes.

Salted Caramel Ice Cream From So Delicious

Salted Caramel Cluster Ice Cream

There’s no denying that So Delicious is an OG of the vegan ice-cream world. This brand has been around since before pumpkin spice lattes were even a thing.

Among an ever-expanding range of vegan products is the brand’s Salted Caramel Cluster cashew-based ice cream, which is entirely vegan.

So, go ahead and make this the next pint you ‘put away’ three times in one night before resigning yourself to eating the whole thing with the freezer door hanging open.

Kidding. Close the door. That’s bad for the environment.

Nakd Vegan Nibbles

For vegans hoping for optimum health, there’s the lesser dietary evil that is Nākd’s Salted Caramel Fruit and Nut Nibbles.

Aimed at creating healthier treats, Nākd products contain super simple ingredients — in this case, cashews, raisins, dates, rice flour, salt and ‘a hint of natural flavoring’.

Also, with their bite-sized format, these Nibbles may be a good route to avoiding candy-related tantrums, from children and adults alike.

Califia Vegan Coffee Range

Salted Caramel Cold Brew Coffee

For those seeking a caffeine fix with a side of sugar fix, there’s Califia Farms’ Salted Caramel Cold Brew Coffee.

Unfortunately, the four-hour workweek is still a dream for most of us, so whatever gets you through the day, right?

Salted Caramel Coco Roons

Another healthier option comes from Sejoyia, the brand responsible for a line of ‘superfood cookies’ dubbed Coco-Roons.

These paleo, non-GMO, vegan cookies are made from simple ingredients like coconut, cashew flour and Himalayan sea salt.

While they certainly aren’t steamed broccoli or fresh fruit, you can still feel good about the fact that they contain no refined sugar. Whether that excuses eating the entire bag in one sitting, I’ll leave it up to you to decide.

Sea Salt Caramel Sauce

Sea Salt Caramel Sauce

No, I’m not kidding. You can buy a vegan caramel sauce—and you can put it on everything.

Is oatmeal still good for you if it’s bathed in Sea Salt Caramel Sauce? Probably not. Does it make you feel less like Oliver Twist when you’re eating it? Definitely.

This coconut-based sauce from AvenueSweets is a great option for not only vegans but anyone looking to caramel coat anything, really.
