Review: Go Max Go - 2Fer Bar

Go Max Go - 2Fer Bar

Vegan Twix style bar with shortbread, caramel and chocolate. Single bar rather than twin fingers. This is the latest addition to Go Max Go's veganized range of chocolate bars. They already do passable vegan imitations of Mars, Snickers, Milky Way, Bounty and Peanut Butter Cups. The Twix bar should have been an easy one...

Review: Tesco Free-From Choc Ice Sticks

Tesco Free-From Choc Ice Cream Sticks

Own-brand vegan 'magnums', vanilla ice cream with thick chocolate coating. Three packs in the 'Free From' freezer section. We recently reviewed the Swedish Glace version of these and suddenly we're spoilt for choice with vegan choc ice lollies. These ones are made from lupin rather than soy:

Review: Swedish Glace 'Choc Ice' Lollies

Swedish Glace 'Choc Ice' Lollies

Strawberry flavour choccy-coated soya ice creams... on sticks. 5 in a pack. These have been available for a month or two at the big supermarkets, and have appeared at the same time as some own-brand alternatives (which we'll review later).

Review: Linda McCartney's Vegan Burgers

Linda McCartney's Vegan Burgers

New branding, new vegan options. Mushroom & Spinach Burgers and Quarter-pounder Vegetarian Burgers. The word 'succulent' appears on the new boxes, but it's a word we've never had cause to use in a vegan burger review until now.

Review: Rhythm Health Kefir Drinks

Cultured coconut milk shots to top up your friendly bacteria. Three delicious flavours - Mango & Passionfruit, Coconut & Pomegranate and Pure Coconut. We couldn't get hold of the Pomegranate one, but picked up the other two. Vegan kefir is still a rarity and we were keen to give these a try:

Review: Champion Soya Milk Portions

Champion UHT Soya Milk Mini Jigger Pots

Long life jigger pots of soya milk. Individual portions. These are mini pots of long life (UHT) soya milk for use in coffee and tea. With a shelf life of 6 months, these are a perfect store cupboard staple for vegans on their travels away from civilisation (anywhere you can't get a soya latte...).

Review: Shire Snax Fruit & Nut Bars

Scottish independent producer of gluten-free, wheat-free, & dairy-free raw snacks that are low in sugar. The Edinburgh company is run by Aaron and Mitch (Michelle), and they got in touch to offer us the chance to try some samples of their wares.

Review: Flora Freedom

Flora Freedom - Dairy Free Vegetable Fat Spread

Dairy-free vegetable fat spread. Flora finally have a vegan margarine! It's been a long time since Flora was marketed as 'the margarine for men' (true story), and it's just as long that we've been waiting for them to ditch the dairy. Has it been worth the wait?

Review: Alpro Go On Yoghurts

Alpro Go On Yoghurts

New plant-based alternative to strained yoghurt, in three flavours. High in plant protein. These new luxury dessert pots from Alpro are the soya answer to CoYo's premium coconut milk yoghurts. Where they differ is the nearly 8% protein content.

Review: Badger's Dairy & Egg Free Coleslaw

Badger's Dairy & Egg Free Coleslaw

Packaged vegan coleslaw with egg-free mayo from independent producer Badger's. The company has been going for a couple of years, making vegan versions of coleslaw, potato salad and egg mayonnaise. We tried all three at the Lincoln Vegan Festival this week, but the coleslaw was our favourite of the three:

Review: Rysp Snack Crackers

Rysp Snack Crackers

Vegan sourdough 'crisps' for snacking and dips. Winners of Great Taste awards last year. The makers of Rysp go by the name of PlainTasty, and Vicky from the company got in touch to offer us some samples for review. We can never turn down the opportunity for an evening of chips and dips, so naturally we said yes.
