cremovita, yeah that's the one. I haven't tried the rice whip, only the soy, but i quite like the taste, so i'm no help there.

I think the Vegan Dad blog has a coconut cream recipe that uses agar, as he was finding his coconut milk wasn't separating as well.

There's also Isa's Rad Whip (on the blog and in the new pie book) if you have the equipment and the patience (and aren't allergic to cashews like I am).

In the Sainsbury's magazine this month they mention dairy free chocolate coins in their Free From section, might be worth a look?

Well I found the raisins (West Hove Sainsburys) but there was no sign of the coins. I wanted to take a peek at the Sainsburys magazine to see what they look like but it's in a plastic bag this month!

OOO! Going to check the website...

EDIT: Couldn't find any choc coins. Though I didn't find any normal sized coins of any sort- they had giant single ones, but none in the mesh bag. I don't find the site very easy to search.

The mag just has a picture of the coins loose, they don't show what the packaging is like. Are those giant single ones Free From? If so, maybe it's them, and the picture is misleading?

No, they're "Giant solid milk chocolate coin". Maybe the dairy free ones haven't been put in shops yet.

Someone tweeted a picture of them at me. Here's the link http://twitpic.com/7hj0ep

They don't look like chocolate coins to me, they just look like chocolate disks. That is not the same Sainsburys! They have to be thin & cheap 'milk' chocolate & in a coin wrapper!

Hmm. Certainly not good enough- they have own brand coins so they must have worked out how to do the proper wrapper.
They'd do at least for this year though. Has anyone found them in the shops?

I bought 2 bags of those discs for our vegan fair tombola. I may have inadvertently caused the resentment towards Sainsbury's by suggesting that what I saw in the magazine were coins when in fact they were discs. I didn't realise the difference was going to be so crucial!!

Despite the Sainsburies 'coins' really just being disks the chocolate is so tasty, quite similar to Moo Free - sugary, milky-esque goodness!
The choc raisins are tempting but so extortionate!?

I've just bought one. Had it last year & it's good. Be careful though 1 of their xmas puddings is only veggie and not vegan. I also bought some mulled wine which is suitable for vegans too which is on offer for $2.99.
