Earth Balance has created a new line of dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan snacks that include a new substitution for Cheetos Cheese Puffs.
The Vegan Aged White Cheddar Puffs are made with corn and navy beans. They are free of dairy, wheat, gluten, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, GMOs, and trans fats.
These will be available at stores that carry Earth Balance products and they are also available for purchase online. The Earth Balance website has a store locator tool.
The other new snacks are Vegan Aged White Cheddar Flavor Popcorn, Vegan Buttery Flavor Popcorn and PB Popps (peanut butter).
The first two popcorns are free of dairy, wheat, gluten, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, GMOs and trans fats. They do contain sunflower oil.
The PB Popps contain peanuts, oats, soy oil, pea, and sunflower; but are free of dairy and egg.
According to a representative from Earth Balance:
Our Earth Balance Popcorns are produced in a facility where peanuts and tree nuts are NOT present and in a different facility than our Earth Balance Peanut Butter Popps Popcorn is produced.
Some of our Earth Balance® Spreads are produced at a facility in which peanut and tree nuts are present, but these allergens are not in our spreads and are not run on the same lines.
Earth Balance® Soy Milk is produced in a plant where tree nuts are present (almond oil).
Our peanut butters and nuts butters are produced in separate facilities from our spreads. Please be aware that Earth Balance is now making a coconut spread which is also being produced at a separate facility.
