Oh, I tried those a couple days ago*! I didn't see anything non-vegan in the ingredients, so I took it on faith. They're pretty good.

*I spent Wednesday evening to Saturday afternoon eating pretty much nothing but junk/convenience food. I really did try all of these things over the past few days.

So last week me and my friends tried out the 48 piece party food thing by VBites. It was alright, granted I think we forked it up a bit because we tried to put 4 trays worth of food in a oven with only two shelves so things didn't cook quite so good.

The first thing we realised was that a lot of it (by a lot I mean, everything apart from the samosas and spring rolls) was puff pastry based, even the pizza's which was a suprise, and caused the pizza's to stay kind of raw/soft on the bottom and burnt on top, but this was likely because we monkey shoved everything into the oven, so the cooking times were way off for us.

We all liked the food, some of it was better than the other items, but the favourites among ourselves were the duck spring rolls, samosas and pizzas. Quiches were okay and so were the sosage rolls. It all got eaten and I've ordered myself another box for Christmas so there's that.
I am not a fussy eater whatsoever so I'll enjoy almost anything vbites makes, but I reckon for those of you who are very much connoisseurs perhaps not so much. If you dig cheap party buffet food you should like it.

Ohh ok that makes sense, I don't usually check the freezer because it'll all melt/defrost before I get home!

That's awesome. I knew about the coffee/lime/strawberry etc creams but dark chocolate Brazil's without honey / confectioners glaze / something else uneccesary are a big win!

I think Paynes dark chocolate Brazil's are vegan as well.

Today I found Provamel Apple Yogurt in H&B. Its also in the penny sale

Nak'd have some new snack packs of raisins, flavoured with cherry or cola. They are both weirdly delicious. Next time I might mix a pack of each together and make cherry cola raisins. BAM!

They think they can trick people into eating embarrassed grapes by making them taste of fizzy pop? This will not stand! I will not be fooled. Will not.

Yes. They are tasty though and I normally think raisins are rank unless they're in a cookie.

I got a pack of the cola raisins once for free somewhere, they actually were really nice. But they're pretty expensive and you barely get any in a pack...

Oh wait, I just looked them up and they're not that expensive. Somehow I thought they were...maybe they used to be or something. My bad!

I think they used to be more expensive when they first came out a few years ago but they are cheaper now

Found some Easter stuff in the free from section in Sainsbury's they're doing their own vegan chocolate egg, and they also have Choices vegan chocolate egg, and they also have chocolate bunny bars, both regular and white chocolate I believe.

My Sainsbury's had all that and Moo Free eggs. I'm fairly certain they didn't have the Moo Free last year (they did have Choices milk chocolate, chocolate caramel, and white chocolate, which they also have this year).

Sorry, didn't realise there was a whole thread for them!
I also found Sunkist Bonbons in B&M a few days ago. They look vegan and are pretty delightful

They have white chocolate Easter Bunnies by Choices in Sainsburys, imo they make the best vegan white choc!
