Ughhhhh. I just saw a new(?) ingredient list for all of Lidl's baked goods. The pink ring donuts are no longer vegan! Not only that, they contain shellac! They looked, smelled and tasted different the last time I bought them. I knew I shouldn't have trusted them!


Never trust a ring doughnut, for they have nothing but a hole where their jammy little heart should be ...

Where is this list Rachel and what stuff in lidl bakery are actually vegan?! I want to buy fresh baked lidl stuff because they smell so damn good!

I saw it on the Vegan Society FB page, so it's probably on their website. It was only breadstuffs that were vegan, none of the sweet stuff.

Thanks! Bummer about the sweet stuff but at least there is fresh backed bread stuff. I normally go in there first thing in the morning and the temptation to have still warm bread is just so strong.

Does anyone know about supermarket "in store bakery" things? I've read somewhere that apparently Morrisons puts milk in all of their bread, but I don't know. Nowhere will say anything except "nothing is suitable for people with allergies".

Morrisons are apparently notoriously unhelpful.

But I did notice today that Waitrose put allergens on the labels of their bakery items. They had these donut things which looked amazing but I knew before I even checked that they would have eggs and milk in. :(

Yeah it sucks because Morrisons is so close to me. And they also do big 30p bars of vegan dark chocolate. But things like cobs etc are probably not vegan, which is sad because uh, it's bread, what do you need non-vegan stuff for?

I was in Starbucks yesterday and was told that the mocha sauce contains dairy, so I checked the allergen list and confirmed it. So, unless this is a CYA thing and it's just "may contain traces", this means all chocolate-based menu items are out. I sent them an email to clarify - I'll let y'all know what they say.

Also FYI, if you see the new new Frappuccinos (Caramel Coffee Jelly and Lemon Vanilla), neither of them are vegan. And of course the fan flavour that's going forward is one of the non-vegan ones. mustards.

I think things using chocolate powder are okay (or the one which was sfv - classic?) it's just the sauce.

They've always used the mocha sauce for all the chocolate stuff, including the classic hot chocolate. It's now labeled as containing dairy on the allergen list. Though part of what I find confusing is that the hot mocha is still OK.

The email I got was super unhelpful. After asking to confirm what the allergen list says, they told me to look at the allergen list. But they gave me a number so I might call.

Oh no! But I thought the mocha was coffee & chocolate flavour so would not be used in the normal hot chocolate? I've just had a look and it appears the kids hot chocolate doesn't contain dairy which is weird. What is different about that?

I may have posted this somewhere else (possibly FB) but Harry Potter Jelly Slugs seem vegan. I have double checked the ingredients (including E numbers) several times but can't find a single non vegan ingredient. They taste fab as well.

I posted this in the Starbucks thread, but in case someone doesn't look at that thread, I'll post here too.

I called the customer care line and clarified the issue with the chocolate beverages. They haven't changed anything about the mocha sauce (used in everything except the signature hot choc, which does contain dairy). The bit that contains dairy is the whipped cream, which is standard on chocolate beverages. They were already thinking about changing the allergen menu, so hopefully this will give them a push to get it done and stop confusing us. So yay, we can still drink Starbucks hot chocolate (and other chocolate beverages)!

Yesterday I made a cake from Tesco's lemon drizzle cake mix that was lovely. I just added flax/oil/soya milk instead of butter/milk/eggs.

I've been having these for years, they're gorgeous. Mango one is very nice too.

I remember having them a while back before I went vegan but didn't think to check if they were suitable until the other day. They're soooooooo good!

Ooooooh I like raspberries so I'l keep an eye out for those!

I recently tried chow mein pot noodle. I am no food snob, but I was wasn't mad on it. I felt like it couldn't decide if it was sweet or savoury, and the noodles were a bit mushy. Edible though, I would eat it in an emergency. Reading back through this thread makes me want to eat more Smash! I went through stage of having smash with baked beans and brown sauce when I was living abroad as a student, and it was divine.

Found peppermint creams as round, individually wrapped sweets in a bag on the bottom shelf of the sweets aisle at Sainsbury's - a bag of 170g (I think?) for 85p. May contain traces blurb so not marked vegan but couldn't see any dodgy ingredients, very yum!

Sorry if these are already mentioned earlier (couldn't be bothered to read all the way back), they don't say "new" but I hadn't seen them before. They're very similar to some Fair Trade ones that Co-op used to sell about 5 years ago.

ohhhh, i used to buy those all the time! i wasn't sure if they were discontinued or what because our local Co-op got redesigned and everything was shuffled around. i'll have a look next time i'm at Sainsbury's. thanks for the heads up!

Speaking of mint chocolate, I found an accidentally vegan mint creme bar in Aldi. It is like a Fry's bar, but bigger and composed of individual creme-filled squares.

In the green foil-like wrappers? Waitrose do them too. They are fab as after dinner mints when people come round.

Found sour cream and onion crisps in Ikea which are accidentally vegan and really nice! They're like kettle chips and incredibly moreish. Wish I'd bought more than one packet as it's an hour away.

Also mustard & dill sauce (yet to try) and cardamom crisp rolls which aren't as exciting as sour cream crisps.
