Few grocery stores have upped their vegan game quite like Kroger — and we’re not just talking fruits and vegetables here. In 2019, Kroger began expanding its Simple Truth herbal line and has since launched more than 75 vegan products.
Granted, Simple Truth plant-based products aren’t the only vegan options you’ll find at the store, as Kroger also carries favorite vegan brands such as JUST Egg, Miyoko Creameryand Tofurki. But in case you haven’t seen many of these herbal offerings, take a look at what you can find at your local Kroger. Back to home ? With big chains like Kroger jumping onto the vegan playground, being vegan — or even just looking for ways to eat fewer animals — is now easier than ever.
1 Simple Truth Deli Slices
Whether you prefer turkey or ham on your sandwich, you’ll find both at your local Kroger. As part of its Simple Truth range, the chain currently offers plant-based salt and pepper turkey-style deli slices and plant-based Black Forest ham-style deli slices.
2 Simple Truth Meatless Breakfast Patties
If there is one reason to get up and shine in the morning, this is it. Make these patties for your tofu scrambles or breakfast sandwiches.

Whether you love chicken or beef or still have friends and family who love it, you don’t have to decide. New Emerge Patties are available as Vegan Chicken Patties, Chicken Ground Patties, or Beef Patties.
4 Simple Truth Plant-Based Dairy Cheddar Style Slices
Because the dairy industry is perhaps one of the cruelest sectors of animal husbandry, we are always happy to see another non-dairy cheese on the market. And like many of Kroger’s vegan products, this one is more affordable than brand-name vegan options.
5 Simple Truth Organic Plant-Based Cream Cheese Alternative
This is a major score, as finding vegan cream cheese at a major grocery chain has been nearly impossible until now. Also, be sure to stock up on bagels.

Here’s a surprising member of Kroger’s new plant-based line: salad dressing. This creamy ranch shouldn’t be limited to salads alone — it can also be drizzled over pizza, potatoes, and interior wraps.
12 Simple Truth Meatless Crumbles
Made from soy, these crumbles are great for anything that requires grinding — think tacos, pastas, and casseroles, for starters.
