Sainsburys own brand "smash" is vegan, haven't tried it yet.

I've used it in a couple of tester recipes, which worked great, but still have the rest glaring at me when I open the cupboard.

Instant potato flakes. I hadn't ever used them before but some US recipes use them. Mine was for a condensed style mushroom soup, as I recall.

I love Smash. I think proper Smash is vegan too, isn't it? I can't remember if I buy smash or sainsbury's own.

Good to know. Thank you. I was browsing The Complete Guide to Vegan Subs and came across 'potato flakes' in a couple of recipes and had no clue what they were or where to find them. Now I know!

All this talk of Smash is making me wish I'd bought some to take to the festival I'm going to this weekend.

Ah yes, my testing was for their next book, so that makes sense.

Smash is dirty/vile!

I tried some a few years ago, assuming it'd been improved since the 80s.

It hadn't.

I loved cheese and onion smash as a student... I wonder if similar filthy food effect can be achieved with onion powder and nooch added to the plain one?!

I would say Nairn's are the Scottish-standard brand oatcakes. (Interrobang?! can correct me if I'm wrong.) I really prefer Patersons because they've got a HINT of crispitycrunchity to them.

I prefer Paterson's too - also made with olive oil instead of palm oil, which is always a bonus

Smash snobs, the lot of ya.

You are all wrong anyway. Smash is amazing, especially with mushy peas on top. Or branston pickle.

I haven't actually tried this stuff yet, but Tate & Lyle have put out a line of flavoured ice cream toppings, and the butterscotch and chocolate mint are for sure vegan (says so on the bottle)! I found them at the ginormous Tesco in Newcastle, so they might be hard to find in smaller places.

I can report that the butterscotch is really good. It reminded me of the butterscotch topping I used to get in the US. Super sweet, but nummy.

dude. Toryglen Asda. If that's too dangerous for you and you can't find 'em elsewhere I will internal mail you next weekend. Because what else is the point of internal mail? Books? Aye, fork that.
