Kettle Brand Potato Chips are thin, slightly greasy, and full of crunch. They tend to season their chips well, and many of those seasonings are actually dairy free! Unlike their competitors, Kettle makes dozens of vegan flavors in various chip styles. In the U.K., they even offer Vegan Sheese potato chips!

More Allergen Notes
- Peanut-Free: According to the company, all Kettle Brand Potato Chips are processed in an environment free of peanuts. They still declare a nut-free environment, too, but they now use almond oil for a few chip flavors.
- Soy-Free: We did not note any products that contain soy, but read the label carefully. They use safflower oil, sunflower oil, avocado oil, and / or almond oil for frying their chips.
- Gluten-Free: According to the company, Kettle Brand Potato Chips are processed in a gluten free environment.
- Dairy-Free Notes: As noted above, they do make chips with dairy in the seasoning. Here is what the company has to say about the dairy in their facility:
Our products are processed on equipment shared with ingredients that contain very small amounts of dairy. We thoroughly clean our lines after each flavor run, but there is a slight potential of cross contamination.

Hi Alisa, thanks for the information. Just as a heads up, most of these chips include an ingredient listed as “natural flavors” which are often animal-derived like chicken stock, beef stock, pork fat renderings among other things. These natural flavors not explicitly being called out often make products not vegan.
Do you happen to know if they of them contain soy?
They most likely contain soy or did at our time of review. Otherwise I would have noted them as soy-free in the Special Diet Notes above.
Alisa, thanks for the clarification. I did not mean to accuse you of intentionally mis-leading people. I think what you’re doing is really great! If honey was there 8 years ago, I’m thrilled (as a strict vegan) that it’s no longer an issue. I am grateful to have access to website as good as yours–keep up the good work and kudos to you!
Not a problem! And thanks for the update – I changed up the post!
I carefully read the ingredients list of Spicy Thai Kettle chips and honey is not listed. Where did you get this (mis) information?
Hi Elk, it wasn’t misinformation when I wrote this post 8 years ago! Looks like they’ve changed the formula (this happens a lot) – yay for those who want honey-free, too! I will update.
I must look for this flavor, thanks! Are the Hot Jalepeno flavor ones also dairy free? Thanks
I looked up the ingredients online, and they appear to be, but I would always check the packaging.
I have been looking for the thai chips could you please help the kettle brand I tried online & in stores
