Oooh I'll have my mom send me some TJ's in the care package. My Roots & Fruits right now (the one by The 78) is tiny but the one on Great Western is big. I don't eat PB often, but good to know it's available. I bet Whole Foods will carry it once they open, too.

I'm totally an Oatley milk fan. The Soya milk wasn't my thing, but I can live on Oatley. It'll be my almond milk replacement.

Whee! Might try those tomorrow. If they taste like Twizzlers, they'll satisfy my thrice-yearly craving.

Meggs, I'm guessing there must be at leat one small independent health food shop in Glasgow! My local health food shop sells almond butter, cashew butter and several others, and I live in a very small town,

Yeah, Glasgow is HUGE! I just need to navigate it and figure things out! Plus, I am sort of displaced right now, and I'll have to learn a whole new area again in three days, plus the public transport system... it's just overwhelming. It was just interesting to note that the ratio of PB to jams/jellies/marmalades is so different compared to the States! It's now about replacing what I know with alternatives- y'all have them, they're just different! Not bad, just different.

Plus, I have 'bang?! but I have bothered her lots already, so I'm trying to just walk everywhere and figure stuff out. I have to tackle the bus sooner or later though.

they're probably considered suitable for vegetarians because shellac isn't produced from killing the insects.

Yeah, it's an excretion isn't it, like cows' milk.

Ah, if only all processed food was automatically vegan. Oh well.

This is true but the way its collected the chances are it has bits of bug in it and I prefer my cupcakes bug free! :)

But we all know animal ingredients and the labelling are forked up anyway.

I don't know if this is accidentally vegan, but I couldn't think of a better place to put it. Some Tesco stores (possibly just Express, and possibly just in city centres) are now carrying Naked Green Machine smoothies! Mike said they don't have it in the Bathgate store near his office, but they have it at our little corner shop. This is very exciting for me. I love Green Machines!

This is maybe not accidentally vegan, because I found it in the "free from" aisle of Sainsbury's, but it said "gluten free" on it, without mentioning being vegan/dairy free/whatever so it may be intentionally gluten free and accidentally vegan. I couldn't see any animal products but might be worth double checking as I just looked at it whilst browsing and made a mental note of it looking good.

Anyway, it is a chocolate hazelnut spread (so like Nutella, I hope) with Antony Worrall Thompson's face on the front. That might be enough to put you off your toast, but I'll probably give it a try at some pint.

Walgreens Good & Delish 4 Star Maple Leaf Creme cookies! I have been eating these by the box with no regrets. Plain, they are amazing. Dipped into coffee, they are ambrosial. Just so you know what to look for on the shelf:

Apparently maple leaf cream cookies are A Thing in Canada, but I'd never seen them before last week. And boy, are they ever vegan!

ETA Holy shiitake, there's a fan club!

I'm sorry! I honestly didn't know that Walgreens wasn't in the UK. I can ship some across the pond, if you'd like.

I'm probably the last person on earth to know this, because I never go to Tesco, but they have fresh pasta that's vegan. And their soya yoghurt isn't at all sweet.

I did not know that! But then I never go to Tesco either (a wee one is opening opposite me in two weeks though. Boo.) I'm surprised they have fresh pasta without egg in it, I thought the whole bit about the fresh pasta thingo in supermarkets was going on about the egg. Huh!

Me too, but they have trofie. It's good until November, so the freshness may be questionable, but it's fresher than dry.

I think Waitrose do a fresh vegan pasta too. I vaguely remember checking once & being shocked!

Do Tesco do an own-brand soya yogurt then? Tesco is now my local shop. I've seen that they sell 4-packs of individual Alpro fruit yoghurts, but no other soya ones. Maybe it isn't a big enough store.

Yes, a big pot, like the Alpro plain one but not sweet at all.

I didn't like the Tesco soya yoghurt as much as Alpro.

I haven't tried the Tesco on its own yet, only in a recipe, but it worked. I hate Provamel the most, tastes like sugar!!!!!

I need to check the Tesco's near me for yogurt. I haven't seen any other than the flavoured Alpro 4-packs and I have to walk all the way to Sainsbury's if I want plain yogurt/a big pot of yogurt. They probably don't have it because they're Tesco Express.

So anyway! I got Doves Farm Organic Chocolate Stars cereal today at Sainsbury's and it's good! Not as sugary as Cocoa Puffs (yay!) and not healthy really but it's good! And it makes the milk all chocolatey.

And I tried the Alpro vanilla pudding. It's good, but I was left craving the dark chocolate.
