Looking for some vegan hot dog brands to try?
You’re in the right place!
We’ve compiled over 7 that you need to check out ASAP – especially if you love hot dogs.
Let’s get to the list.
Field Roast makes pretty good vegan meats, and these are no exception. They have a very nice texture, they’re not too soft and they don’t have any weird crunchiness to them, which can sometimes happen when using vegetables as a base. They have a nice smoky flavor and can be microwaved, though they taste better on the grill Some people complain about them having a weird smell but that’s mainly from microwave cooking.
This small brand has made a big name for itself. It’s a small family owned and operated company, and quality is always number one. These franks will remind you of those incredible hot dog stand hot dogs. They have a texture very similar to the real deal, and the taste is indescribable it’s so good.

These hot dogs have overall a good taste. There are little things here and there, like a slight aftertaste, or a weird smell while cooking, but most people don’t experience any of those. They have a traditional hot dog taste, so if you want something that tastes like the real deal, something you would buy in the meat section at the store, these are your guys. But that also means there’s nothing really special about them, no extra flavor.
Tried and true Tofurky come through again. These are jumbo dogs so they’re huge, which means more room for toppings and fixings. Although this dog would be great without all the extras. It has a naturally smoky flavor, so it’s great on the grill. They’re very filling and it cooks super fast.
These have a very smoky flavor. They’re naturally dense and thick so they’re very filling. These taste best on the grill and honestly, you can’t even tell the difference between this and the real deal. They’re served best with beans and coleslaw or something like that, to really give you the backyard cookout flavor.
Your favorite affordable Whole Foods option made the list. These are kind of like Target store brand foods, not the real thing, but definitely, the better option if you’re on a tight budget. They’re pretty good, they can be a little chewy but that can be fixed by trying the different cooking method. They have a nice savory taste, and again, they’re affordable so you can’t beat that.
So, these special guys are made in Germany the “artisanal” way. Even if they weren’t they would still be amazing. They a very thick and juicy and have a wonderful spice profile. You can actually taste the spices they’re not just listed on the ingredients for fun. They’re not too expensive either so that’s a plus.
