Hey guys! So, I'm semi-new to veganism (under a year) and I still haven't fully figured out what I cannot possibly get here in the states but is available to you all in the UK. I have a coworker who offered to get me something while she was in London. As she is not vegan herself, it'd be good for it to be a clearly labelled thing that's easy to find. Are there any products I should absolutely try?

I think I've heard of Cheezly being the vegan cheeze? Should I ask for that or something else?

White chocolate buttons, starburst (no gelatin in it here!), dark chocolate chip nairn's oat cakes (if you like chocolate chip cookies- but these are just better because they're really oat cakes), maybe vegan flapjack bars? I forgot who makes those though. You can get them at Holland & Barrett's.

And what RJM and Gulliver said, too.

Oh, my American friend raved about Sainsbury's chicken noodles, which contain no animal matter whatsoever.

Yes! Yes! Sainsbury's chicken noodles, which say 'vegan' right on the front of the packet! Particulary the Basics ones which are about 7p each.

Hob nobs are vegan? Is there only one kind? Same with Jammie Dodgers?

I'm sick. I need these chicken noodles.

Filthy noodles are where it's at. They are lush if you put broccoli in with the broth for a bit before you add the noodles. You might also want vegan millionaires shortbread from waitrose. Vegan white chocolate buttons from any big supermarket. Goody good stuff gummy sweets.

^ You can get the millionaires shortbread in Sainsbury's now too (in the FreeFrom section). Also, by the same manufacturer, chocolate tiffin.
