Wait, what? I always thought giraffe bread had cheese on top. Is the top just crust? I feel... so many years... wasted...


Sorted you both out, by the way.

According to Asda's labelling, they have the original tiger bread. (I don't think it looks like a tiger or a giraffe, so whatever.)

Marks & Spencer's maple bacon popcorn is vegan. I eat way too much popcorn.

Oh, and the large vegetable samosa in the sandwich section is, too.

A load of the m&s iced buns/fruit buns are, can't remember which though so you'd have to check.

Their falafel are NOT however and have milk in, who puts milk in falafel? Not even a yoghurt sauce, just plain up milk powder in the balls.

I know, quite a few waitrose falafel have milk in too, makes me crazy. Either M&S or Waitrose, I forget which, have a salad and it should be vegan but the falafel has milk or egg or some crepe in.

It's only Sainsbury's which sells giraffe bread. I do think it's rather fun that they took on board the comment of a tiny customer like that.

And I eat whole tiger bagels, with no filling/spread/additions of any sort, for my packed lunch when I'm lazy. They're yummy.

An ethnic supermarket round the corner to me sells accidentally vegan flapjacks with chocolate or caramel on them.

YOU GUYS. i was poking around in this fancy/imported food shop in Cardiff yesterday and found VEGAN STOLLEN. at least i think it's vegan - "marzipan Christmas stollen with 12% luxury marzipan filling" by Kuchenmeister. it has some iffy ingredients (mono- and diglycerides, sodium stearoyl-2-lactylate) but a cursory Google search seems to confirm that they're not of animal origin.

maybe this isn't such a revelation, but all the stollen i've ever seen contains milk and/or eggs.

Apparently there is some in Aldi, though i can't vouch for it personally!

In B&M bargains today, I found a red pepper & chilli pesto by 'Dress Italian' which is vegan :) And less than £1 a jar. Score.

Has anyone mentioned Waitrose iced finger buns? They're on the Waitrose vegan list, and they're filthy. Mike and I ate a whole packet in one night. Their Belgian iced buns are also vegan (but I won't eat them because they have currants).

They also have a chocolate sauce (created by Heston Blumenthal) that looks vegan. I bought it (to eat over some raspberry Swedish Glace which they had regular price for £2) but haven't tried it yet.

I tried the chocolate sauce. It's good but really bitter, so you'd want to eat it with something like Swedish Glace that's super sweet to balance the bitterness. You can taste the espresso flavouring in it. And a little goes a long way - I spooned out a bit too much and some of it went to waste. It's pretty solid in the jar, so it's probably best warmed up (you can eat it cold, but you'd pretty much have to use it as a spread). It's nice to have the option of a hot fudge sauce that I don't have to make myself.

They're individual tarts - shortcrust pastry, deseeded raspberry jam, cream (like a lump of buttercream), and a sugary shell-type topping (not a hard shell - maybe it's fondant?). They're in the pre-packaged section. They also have pineapple which I think are vegan, though I didn't double check the veganness of those because I wasn't that interested. I found out from someone on the local vegan FB group, and someone else said they found them at Costcutter as well.


Do you know if the apple custard ones are vegan? I found them tonight and the short ingredient version just says "may" contain eggs and milk. They didn't have the full ingredient list in store.

Yes Lidl, I think they might be, the apple puffs clearly state they have dairy or egg in, but the apple custard plaits are written up the same as the raspberry ones.

In the fresh bakery section or the packaged stuff?

ETA - If it's bakery, the only apple thing they listed on the sheet they sent me in September wasn't vegan, but it didn't sound like the thing you're talking about.

It's the bakery, I think it's the same as the raspberry ones you were talking about, it's the same shape & size. They had the pictures of the raspberry ones on the little list in the bakery area, they just don't seem to be selling them yet. Wonder if it was the apple turnovers that weren't vegan on the list?

Hi I'm new here!

Aldi dark choc Marzipan is immense (if no one has mentioned it yet). They had stollen in at Cmas too but it was huge and I daren't buy it in case I demolished the lot and went into a sugar coma.

Bourbons. Always bourbons. Except M&S which have milk in. Bloody M&S.
