I search everywhere I go for vegan items, mostly out of curiosity as I try to stick to a whole foods plant based diet as much as possible. When I found this place, I was blown away by items I've been looking to get for my son such as dairy free cheese sticks, animal crackers, and vanilla wafers. This place had it all! It can obviously get a little pricey, but it's worth it when you know what you're putting into your body! Will be returning! :)

Pros: Variety of vegan options , Multiple departments , Sale items too

Cons: Can be pricey

How could I be Vegan without this place?

Super friendly staff and when Waco wasn't so vegan friendly this was the first place I could find all the special things like vegan cheese! They have super cheap prices compared to everything else and an amazing selection.

Pros: Nice Staff, So many items, Cheap

Cons: No produce

Vegan friendly

I am so grateful for this location. The manager is willing to order products they didn't sell and if they can't get it they will let you know. Thank you for carrying so many vegan meats, cheeses and snacks. The best place in waco!

Great place for vegans!

I love, love, LOVE Drug Emporium. It's the only place in town I can get Earth Balance (the soy kind, the local Walmart surprisingly carries the soy-free version), it has way better deals on Veganaise and Tofutti products than the local grocery store, a wider selection of vegan frozen meals, coconut milk (grocery store doesn't carry it), and a fantastic array of vegan sweets. Would recommend to anyone, but one warning, it's cash/checks/debit only - no credit cards!

Pros: Great selection, Good prices, Friendly staff

Cons: Cash/check/debit only

Amazing variety of whole foods!

I went with my aunt today - I am visiting from California and am low fat vegan trying to help her eat more healthy. I found more variety of dr mcdougall products, walden farms fatb free dressings and products and loads of whole grains and best brands of beans (Eden), and canned tomato products (Muir Glen). Some quinoa mixes with no fat, lots of great options for a single person. I highly recommend this for your staples - no produce to speak of, but the rest is great. Even have Sriracha sauce!

Pros: Organic Whole foods, Fat free whole foods, Frozen whole foods

Cons: Little produce, Too many vitamins

Drug Emporium growth

The Vitamin Plus section has been enlarged and now covers the right side of the store. There is a gluten free section now and many more products in all areas. The frozen section is also much larger. Good place to shop.

Pros: good selections, helpful staff

Cons: no fresh produce

Thank you Drug Emporium!!

OH HAPPY DAY! I thought I would surely starve before I found Drug Emporium. Having recently moved to the greater Waco metropolitan area, I was despondent that the best selection of Veg food found was at Wal-Mart!! Then Happy Cow recommended Drug Emporium. . . what a relief! They have a rather impressive selection of frozen goods, both vegan and vegetarian as well as many organic offerings. They also have a good selection of less perishable food items such as salad dressings, flours, mixes, etc.

Pros: Good Value, Organic Offerings, Vegan Items

Cons: No Produce, No Bulk Items
