Finding specialty foods like dairy-free chocolate, cheese alternatives, and allergy-friendly snacks in stores can be time-consuming and downright tricky at times. But these online food retailers make it easier. Each one offers a broad assortment of dairy-free and vegan products, and many accommodate other dietary needs with the click of a button.
Just about every pantry item is covered, including necessities, indulgences, and everything in between. And a few of these online shops even ship refrigerated and frozen items, like vegan creamer and non-dairy ice cream! The list below is in alphabetical order, and it will automatically update as we add new stores.
