Honestly I can't remember. They don't seem to sell them anymore in my morrisons, only the chocolate orange ones, which didn't have whey last time I bought them, but I haven't bought biscuits in a while. I'll check next time I'm in there.

Right? Jeez.

Of course they could just put a freakin ingredients list on there and say 'may contain....' that way the normal vegans among us can make up their own mind about them.

In some shops the doughnuts do have ingredients lists on the sticker which closes the bag. It made me feel a lot better to be able to read the ingredients rather than just have a bag printed 'May contain: nuts, milk, egg, shellfish, lupin, mustard [etc etc]'.
I haven't read the ingredients for several weeks though, so don't know if they have changed. Last time I got custard doughnuts I was very disappointed as they had a lot less custard filling and the actual doughnut bit was very dry.

do you have absolute confirmation of this?
i mean, they always were but recently (like, within the last month or so) there's been reason to suspect this may have changed and i've yet to get a response from the co-op one way or the other?

OK I checked in Morrisons today and both their double chocolate cookies and chocolate orange cookies appear to be vegan. I will take a pic later so you can see the packaging. (I felt I had to buy them both!)

I wish I could put a "like" on that post, baps.
I also wish that the Morrissons by my Uni would carry those :'(

Sorry, I've been a bit ill and haven't been checking here and have therefore missed all these awesome replies! You are all great, thank you! <3
Although now I am very, very hungry... this always happens when I read about food :(
By the way - Lot lots of the Mr. Kipling pies seem to be vegan? Is this right or am I missing something? Please say I'm not?

Yes some of the mr kipling fruit pies are definitely vegan. You can also buy some vegan treacle tarts, not sure if they're mr kipling or supermarket own brands though off to top of my head.

Oh and today I found chocolate chip peanut butter in sainsburys that appears to be vegan and I'm pretty excited about it. Although I feel like maybe I already read about that on here, so you guys probably already know.

those morrisons choc chip cookies are silly. we ate a pack last weekend during a hike in the peak district.
the oat and fruit ones in the same range are also vegan, and the whole range is currently on offer of 2 packs for £1.60 at the morrisons near me. oh dear!

I think the Aldi Rice Krispies are too but I didn't look properly or buy them in the end.



im gradually introducing more vegan foods, and i have a bar of dairy fine dark chocolate in the fridge, it does say it 'may contain traces of nuts and milk' so i dont know about the mint creme...it comes under allergy warnings, may be worth checking if you haven't already..
i have tasted vegan chocolate and was surprised how nice it was..i think it was plamil..and i love om bars, but i cant remember if they're vegan...

I don't suppose anyone knows whether the (amazing) Morrisons cookies still exist? I went to buy some a couple of weeks ago and to my horror there weren't any (of any variety) - nor was there a space where they should have been..... and this was in my local Morrisons, where I usually buy them (VERY regularly... ha) please someone tell me they haven't been discontinued!?

Not especially a vegan request as I expect most brands would be, but does anyone know where to get those giant pasta shells?
