The Co-op have a new GF chocolate sandwich biscuit that appears vegan. Similar concept but not the same as Oreos - they're larger and not as chocolaty. They're pretty tasty, if a bit crumbly.

I forgot to say, I had the Starburst Morphs today. They're so so good. Even the strawberry one wasn't terrible (though I left most of them for Mike). I bought a tear and share packet and ate all of the cherry/lime and raspberry/pear on the way home from the shop.

I was in the Co-op today and found a pack of scones that looked vegan. I can't remember the brand, but I think they were from the bakery company that makes some of their packaged baked goods (that generally aren't vegan). So, they were in the bakery section but not Co-op branded, but they were fresher than the mass produced baked goods, if that makes sense.

I was about to get the Morph ones one day then noticed they had palm fat in it. I was so so sad.

Is this an ethical thing rather than an allergy thing? If so have you found a non-palm oil margarine anywhere? or are you just giving up not 100% necessary palm oil stuff?

Ethical.... well trying anyway. Haven't found spread yet so just giving up/cutting back on the unnecessary stuff. It's frustrating though... I want the big companies to keep making the sweets without the crushed beetles and gelatine but I get a dose of the guilts as soon as I realise there is palm oil in them. I haven't gotten around to looking at all the other things I eat to see if it is in them so I am clueless to how limited I am going to be and whether it is doable.

I do really, really, really want to try the morphs though.

I saw this for the first time today....I did the most boring thing possible and made an actual curry. With potatoes, mushroom and other veg..... (With chips next time for sure).

I've just finished reading through this thread (and adding a few things to my shopping list!) and just thought I'd share that the Lotus (speculoos) biscuits come in a spread form, you can get it alongside peanut butter in Sainsburys and it's flippin' divine! It comes in smooth or crunchy, crunchy is best for eating (with a spoon because I have no shame!) but smooth is great for baking with (I've made blondies and frosting with it so far)

Also, Tesco sell a popcorn brand called 'Propercorn' that does a Sweet & Salty variety that is amazing and doesn't use any butter or anything in it.
I don't think anyone else has mentioned Fox's coconut crinkles, which are vegan insofar as I can tell (though they do list the enigmatic 'flavouring'), and Silver Spoon brand dark chocolate chips are great for baking with (though they have a 'May contain Milk' warning on them my sister's never had a reaction and she has a milk intolerance)

Admittedly these are things I've discovered due to my sister (and recently myself) having a dairy and egg intolerance rather than true veganism, so hopefully I haven't mentioned anything with animal by-products that I didn't recognize!

My friend brought out a packet of butterkist popcorn that she said she bought from blockbusters. It was sour cream and chive (or onion?) flavoured. No dairy in there apart from the may contain traces. It tasted good! Not had that taste in ages.

I <3 Propercorn. The plain salted one and Worcester sauce ones are vegan (and yummy) too!

Tesco Everyday Value Bourbon Creams make the world go round. I know I've posted about them before but they are that amazing.

I got a box of Lidl's Chocolate moons yesterday. I'm quite enjoying them too. I had them for dinner last night.

I can't remember if I mentioned these, but Blue Diamond Smokehouse almonds are forking delicious. It's like eating chunks of bacon without the death. I got mine in Tesco but I've seen them in Waitrose as well.

I love these! Can't quite seem to get it right when I make it at home, these are delicious.

I tried the Bear cereal, and it's pretty tasty. Waitrose has both varieties (wholegrain and cocoa wholegrain) for £2.

They had the Butterkist savoury popcorn in WH Smiths today (not seen it in supermarkets yet), I really wish I'd got a bag now but I'd already been through the checkouts once and that is enough!

Sainsbury's hotdog ketchup is resplendent.

It's ketchup for hotdogs! It has lots of sweet mustard in.

Sounds like a great company, I like the idea of purposely using produce that's about to go past saleability. If you're going to be boiling it for ages to make chutney it's not like the fact that some of the vitamins have probably gone already matters so much.

Any favourite flavours?

I think the apple and ginger is my fav ... the nutty plum a close second ... I bought one of each aside from the mango ... I am very fond of chutney and when shopping do my best to support independent retailers / small suppliers ...
