I found Earth Balance when I first became vegan. I tried the butter first and was so impressed by the taste of it. I honestly couldn’t tell the difference from a dairy butter and I never looked back. Recently Earth Balance has come out with a bunch of new products. So far everything I’ve tried I have really enjoyed.
Earth Balance is actually owned by the same company as Smart Balance. Smart Balance is not completely vegan/dairy free but focuses on having healthy and cholesterol free products.
They are non-GMO. Their products don’t contain any dairy, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts (excluding the nut butters), fish, and shellfish. Many of the products are also soy and gluten free too.

So as you can see they have a lot of really interesting products. If you would like some ideas on what to try here are some of my favorites:
BUTTER SPREAD – SOY FREE
Out of all the butter spreads I like the soy free the best. I use this wherever I would regularly use butter – Baking, cooking, spread on toast – You name it! The only thing I don’t like is that it’s not organic. I would love to see them come out with an organic soy free version.
AGED WHITE CHEDDAR FLAVOR PUFFS
These are made with corn and navy beans to make a very different but delicious snack. I could munch on these all day everyday. You can eat them during an at home movie night or at your next party.
BAKERY STICK – SOY FREE
I would use the original bakery sticks all the time. It’s so easy and helpful to use them when you’re baking. I was then so excited when I found the soy free version. This is the one I go for if its available in the store.
CHEDDAR MAC & CHEESE
Although I always love making my own fresh oven baked macaroni & cheese this one is so easy and fun to make. Especially at the end of a long day it’s an amazing comfort food. The aged white cheddar one is also good but I find myself reaching for this one more often.
SOUR CREAM & ONION FLAVOR KETTLE CHIPS
I cannot explain my excitement when I found these! Before I became vegan I would eat anything and everything with sour cream and onion on it. I was so happy I found something to satisfy my need for sour cream & onion combo! This is my absolute favorite snack from Earth Balance.
I really recommend trying whatever you can from this brand. Comment below your favorite Earth Balance products!
Enjoy all your baked goods, popcorn, chips and everything this great brand has to offer!
