Whether you are headed to your local CVS to get your vaccine, pick up a prescription, or grab some health or beauty products, don't skip their food aisles! While you might think that the only things to grab are basic chips or candy bars, CVS is currently carrying some of the most amazing snacks of any store out there. Even better? A lot of them are healthier options than some of the standard snacks you find elsewhere. You might just make your CVS your preferred snack-stop—prescriptions optional!

Check out these top-shelf snacks to search for next time you are at a CVS.

KRAVE Jerky

KRAVE Jerky is our current favorite brand of jerky with great flavors that go way beyond the usual boring suspects, and we love it for a fast delicious hit of protein when we are on the go. Our new faves? Their pork cuts in Black Cherry Barbecue, or Sweet Chipotle Beef.

Whisps Cheese Crisps

Whisps Cheese Crisps are little snack crackers made of just cheese, for a gluten-free flavor bomb of crispy cheesy goodness. We like them for snacking, or as a sprinkle on salads. Look for the Tomato Basil flavor, which tastes like pizza.

Love Corn Premium Roasted Corn Snacks

If you love corn nuts, keep an eye peeled for Love Corn Premium Roasted Corn Snacks, and if you can take the heat, pick up the Habanero Chili flavor, which packs more punch than any other "hot" snack out there.

SkinnyDipped Dark Chocolate Cocoa Almonds

Need a chocolate fix? We are addicted to SkinnyDipped products, which use a thin coating of premium chocolate and a dusting of cocoa powder on nuts to give you all the chocolate flavor in a snack that is still on the lower end of the carb and sugar scale. Look for their Dark Chocolate Cocoa Almonds.

No Cow Lemon Meringue Pie Bar

Need to grab a protein bar to help get you to your next meal while you are on the go? CVS carries a full line of all the usual suspects, but we are particularly in love with the No Cow Lemon Meringue Pie Bar, which has great bright lemon flavor and a terrific soft texture.

LesserEvil Paleo Puffs

If you or anyone you love is doing paleo, but really misses their cheese puffs, grab a couple bags of LesserEvil Paleo Puffs, for "no cheese cheesiness" that is sure to satisfy.

Emmy's Organics Chocolate Covered Coconut Cookies Mint Bites

If mint and chocolate is top on your snack list, give Emmy's Organics Chocolate Covered Coconut Cookies Mint Bites a try! They are like a Mounds bar and a York Peppermint Patty had a better-for-you baby and we are not mad at them.

Gold Emblem products

Finally, one of the snack brands to really look for at CVS is its own Gold Emblem brand. We cannot get enough of their nibbles, from the Abound Spicy Queso Tortilla Chips to the Everything Bagel Cashews to the Chili Lemon Pistachios. We stock up on the full variety and keep them around for pairing with cocktails. They have some fun new extra spicy products coming online after May 7, so be sure to look for Extreme Carolina Reaper Puffs and Extreme Ghost Pepper Potato Chips when they launch!
