I've been veg (lacto-ovo) for two years now, and struggle constantly for snack foods. Its easy in the summer and early fall. Berries Berries Berries!!!

Some other things I love are:
homemade granola bars (recipe http://www.joyfulabode.com/2008/04/11/homemade-granola-bar-recipe-no-high-fructose-corn-syrup-in-these-bars/)
veggie slices, especially cucumber
half an avocado, drizzled with tamari (my favourite!!!!)
fruit! Love the mini mandarin oranges 2 or 3 make a great snack
I second the Panda Black Licorice suggestion, (my boss just introduced me to it. So yummy, and fairly cheap!)
corn nuts
a scoop of whatever leftovers are in the fridge
figs (only sometimes, I don't always like them, it's weird)
naan and peanut butter
pizza pops (homemade)
chili lime almonds. I fell in love with these in the summer and started making my own
smoothies (it's a good thing I don't live too near booster juice!)
Kashi 7-grain crackers (so tasty, they don't need anything else)
graham crackers (with or without nutella)
and of course the oh so unhealthy (so saved for a special treat), salt and vinegar chips

I never had cravings for meat, more often McDonald's French fries. I loved those things, but I heard they contain sued, so I stay away from them.

As for cravings, I have a slightly odd theory. I reckon your body knows what it wants, so you should give it what it wants.

No, I don't mean eat meat if that's what you're craving. I also don't mean overeating is a good thing. I mean eat the type of food you're craving since there may be a reason. My body knows when it's low in iron and I start craving iron-rich foods.

Meat is packed with protein and iron. So, if you're craving meat maybe that means you should eat a snack with protein and iron.

If you're after something sweet or creamy, find a healthy and veg-friendly food that meets the requirement. Then you can have a little when you crave.

I'm not veggie, but here are some of my favorite meat-free snacks:

Edamame (soy beans)

Pita chips.  I like to make my own.  Take a whole wheat or regular pita, split it, and cut each half into 12 slices.  Brush on oil or spritz on some cooking spray.  Add whatever herbs or spices you like--chili peppers, basil, garlic, etc., topped off with some good old salt and pepper.  If you're lacto-ovo, add some cheese.  Bake at 325 for 12-15 minutes or until crispy.
