Father's Day: Venchi Chocolate Truffle Cigar

Venchi - CUBA - Cacao Aromatico (Chocolate Truffle Cigar - Aromatic)

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:

New: Provamel Relaunch, New Products

Provamel Oat Milk and Rice-Almond Milk

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.

Review: Ombar Coco Mylk

Ombar Coco Mylk Chocolate

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.

Review: London Tea

The London Tea Company: Black, white, green, fruit and herb teas

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.

Review: Marmite Rice Cakes

Marmite Rice Cakes are vegan

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.

Review: Shneider's Delinut Dip

Shneiders - Delinut Dip - Dairy Free chocolate cream dippers

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?

Review: Fourre Vanilla Cream Biscuits

Fourre - Vanilla Cream Doppelkeks - Vegan Biscuits

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:

Review: Vegamigo Egg-Free Omelette Mix

Vegamigo Egg-Free Omelette Mix for vegan omelettes

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:

Review: Co-operative Cherry Pie / Gooseberry Pie

Co-operative Vegan Cherry Pie / Gooseberry Pie

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.

News: Fry's vegan range now in Booths

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.

Review: Tofutti Minis - 'Better Than Cream Cheese'

Tofutti Minis - 'Better Than Cream Cheese' - Dairy Free Cream Cheese

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.
