Review: Vivani Chocolate Bars

@VeganTownUK sent us a selection of these organic chocolate chunk bars to review, and we were only too happy to oblige.

Vegan Shopper: Vegan Naan Update

Dairy-free naan bread UK

Three brands of yoghurt-free naan bread on sale in the UK. It's really hard to find naan bread that doesn't have dairy in it, so whenever we come across some we grab it.

Mamma Cucina Vegan Ice Cream

Dairy-free frozen soya dessert from the Tofutti sister brand, in Vanilla and Strawberry flavours.

Mamma Cucina's dairy free range includes cheesecakes, quiches and pizzas, but is their ice cream any good?

Review: Veggiestuff Vegan Sweets

Veggiestuff Vegan Sweets and Jellies

Jelly sweets from including sour rainbow twists, cola bottles and hard gums. The folks at Veggiestuff sent us a selection of their soft sweets for review. We've seen vegan cola bottles and hard gums before, but the rainbow twists are new. They may not have survived the mailing intact, but the taste wasn't affected...
