Co-op has started selling cinnamon doughnuts and in the interests of further scientific doughnut testing, I emailed them to ask what allergens they contain.

Quote:
Thank you for your e mail regarding our cinnamon doughnuts.

The ingredients for this product are:

Fortified Wheat Flour (Wheat Flour, Calcium carbonate, Iron, Niacin, Thiamin), Water, Vegetable Oil (Palm, Rapeseed), Sugar, Yeast, Cinnamon (2%), Glucose Syrup, Raising Agents (Disodium diphosphate, Sodium carbonate), Salt, Emulsifiers (Mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids - Vegetable, Mono- and diacetyl tartaric acid esters of mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids - Vegetable), Flavouring, Antioxidant (Ascorbic acid).

Other than wheat this product contains no allergens. However as with all our in store bakery lines that are baked or part prepared in store, there is a cross contamination risk from all allergens as other products may contain these ingredients. As a result in store bakery lines have a may contain allergen risk which does include egg and milk.

Hope this helps


Fortified flour sounds so vegan. Also, I really like it when words I don't understand are specified as vegetable-based.

In the interests of science, I shall work out how many of these I can consume in a specific time period.

Are these donuts like the ones in bags (the custard/jam ones) or the ring ones in boxes? I must have them!

OMG, cinnamon doughnuts sound lovely. I hope the store I regularly go to has them! (Shame about the palm oil though.)

Neither, they're ring ones in bags!

So I bought a bag on the way to work today and they were really disappointing. The dough has quite a bit of cinnamon in it, so they're a bit like... hot cross buns in doughnut shape with no fruit?

I have done extensive scientific testing on the other doughnuts they sell and have found that, across the board, there is a negative relationship between proximity to sell-by date and doughnut quality. The ones I purchased today had a sell by date of the 21st, so supports my previous results. Feel free to apply my findings to your own research, no citation required.

Sainsburys have got a net bag of mixed vegan chocolate. There's a little Father Christmas, a bag of buttons, some chocolate coins and a few other bits. I have bought a bag to donate to our Animal Aid tombola. They've also got some new chocolatey bits separately, as well as those chocolate raisins and fudge that Redwood sell or used to sell.

I just saw an advert for Asda Christmas Tree shaped crumpets. Someone needs to confirm veganocity STAT!

Yeah I find the co-op donuts very hit and miss and usually disappointing. I was so excited when I found the iced ring donuts but ended up binning half of them because they were crepe.

OK, so I had the cinnamon doughnuts today and I've got to agree, they were rubbish. I actually really like the normal jam ones, but these were really just sugary bread. They didn't even taste that cinnamon-y.

I tried the cinnamon donuts today. They weren't terrible. They were what I would expect from that type of donut, though they were a bit dry. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy them again, but if I was hungry and they were available, I would eat them.

I found Udi's breakfast bars in Tesco, they look possibly vegan but I have emailed the company to find out:

I was in Asda today and found Hello Kitty chocolate milkshake mix, and it's vegan! It's basically Quik but not from Nestle, and as far as I can recall from my days of drinking Quik, it's pretty much the same.

The company that do Rosey Nosey also do a Christmas Eve beer (in Morrisons) and a special reserve beer they only bring out at Christmas in Aldi (its £2.99 a bottle but Aldi also sell Rosey Nosey cheaper than Morrison's)

So, Asda free from chocolate hazelnut spread - forking amazing. It's like eating melty giandiuja spread over bread.

I just tried them. They are nice crumpets but the only special thing about them is the shape, I don't know what else I expected but for some reason feel a bit disappointed.
