Accidentally Vegan: Chick-O-Stick!
Chick-O-Stick is accidentally vegan! Chick-O-Stick is a long loved, all-American candy. Coconut and peanut butter pair up in this old fashioned candy, and for me it was love at first bite when I was just a kid!
Note: although Chick-O-Sticks have been vegan for a long time, they’re now listed as vegan-friendly on the manufacturer’s website – hooray that people are asking questions and times are changing!
Atkinson Candy Company’s Chick-O-Sticks are crunchy and have the same flaky texture of the inside of a Butterfinger candy bar, with a hint of coconut added into the mix. Chick-O-Stick are widely distributed at convenience stores, candy shops, and you can also find them online at Amazon.
