VeganTown.co.uk have the perfect Father's Day gift: dairy-free gianduja cigars from Italian confectioner Venchi. The folks at VeganTown sent us a sample cigar to review (thank you folks!), while you can get yours for under a fiver. Father's Day this year is Sunday June 15th:
Dairy-free plant milks from @Provamel including, Oat, Rice-Almond and Macadamia. New stylish packaging, with slimmer cartons too. The marketing team at Provamel sent us the new recipe Oat milk and the brand new Rice-Almond milk, ahead of the June relaunch. We hope to get hold of the Macadamia milk soon too.
Vegan 'milk' chocolate bar made with coconut cream. Produced with organic raw cocoa and bio live cultures. This chocolate bar arrived with the May Vegan Tuck Box and is the first time we've encountered the Ombar brand.
Black, white, green, fruit and herb teas from London's premier tea company. From breakfast tea to sencha green tea, the range has something for all tastes. The marketing team at London Tea sent us a selection to try. What else could we do...we held a vegan tea party.
Rice cakes that aren't dull, but flavoured with love-it or hate-it Marmite. A low fat snack alternative to crisps, with 3% fat. We found these in the Co-operative supermarket.
Chocolate dipper snack pack from the May Vegan Tuck Box selection of treats. Shneider's Delinut Duo spread gained top marks in our review last year, so we were thrilled to see this snack pot arrive. Oddly, Delinut is sometimes spelled Dellinut, depending on which country the product is manufactured for. Is the Dip as good as the Duo?
Doppelkeks sandwich biscuits from Vegan Tuck Box this month. Vegan custard creams are hard to come by, so these vanilla cream biscuits are a welcome substitute. Large round doppelkeks (double biscuits) are popular in Germany and France, but rare in the UK:
For dairy-free, soy-free and gluten-free vegan omelettes, just mix with water. This German powdered mix is the first egg-free omelette product to arrive in the UK, and is based on a mix of flours including chickpea, potato and tapioca. Just like The Vegg, it's also got an eggy flavour thanks to kala namak:
Large fruit pies from the Co-op in-store bakery. Listed as vegan on the supermarket's current vegan list (link below). UPDATE: The Apple Pie and Rhubarb Pies are also on the list, but the pies are not listed together.
Vegans in the Northwest welcome news of Booths supermarkets stocking the market-leading meat replacement brand. The range of Fry’s Family Foods products is available at half-price until May 20 as a special introductory promotion at Booths.
Mini snack packs of dairy-free and soy-free cream cheese. Based on a protein blend including rice, fava bean and garden pea. This is a six pack of little snack pots, so you can get your dairy-free fix on the go. We picked up the Roasted Red Pepper & Garlic flavour.
