The new banana Soreen looks vegan.

Wheat Flour, Banana Fruit Pieces (11%) (contains: Fructose-Glucose Syrup, Concentrated Pear Puree, Concentrated Banana Puree, Humectant: Glycerol, Sugar, Wheat Fibre, Vegetable Fat, Gelling Agent: Pectin, Malic Acid, Natural Flavouring, Concentrated Lemon Juice), Sugar, Banana Puree (9.9%), Water, Starch, Vegetable Fat, Dextrose, Yeast, Salt, Flavourings, Preservative: Calcium Propionate (added to inhibit mould growth), Colour: Lutein

am I missing anything? It would be a nice thing to be able to buy for packed lunches on occasion.

The only two question marks there could maybe be "natural flavouring" and "flavourings" which could potentially be of animal origin, but I guess you'd have to email the company to be absolutely sure if this was a problem for you.

That's great news - I wish they'd make the regular malt loaf vegan because I used to love that!

Soreen stuff

Right, the day I wrote the post about banana Soreen there was loads of it in Tesco but I didn't get any. I've been back since, trying to buy some, and there's none! They have the normal malt loaf but I can't even find the shelf price marker for the banana one. Very annoyed- I was in the mood for cakey stuff.
Scotmid say they don't stock it and Sainsburys didn't have it on their website. Waitrose say it is in selected shops so i'll have a look there next time I'm in the area.I'll have another look in Tesco this evening too.

Hadn't seen or heard of the apple version but it sounds pretty good.

Edit: Well, er, they do have the banana loaf in Tesco. It is slightly above eye level in the "sale" section of the bakery products. An employee pointed it out to me so I can now confirm that it is very squidgey and nice. A bit too sweet, but oh well.

What's a soreen?
More importantly, do I want to try one?

I bought both the apple and banana loaf after reading this. I desperately missed malt loaf. My local ASDA had a large stock of both flavours.

Meggs, Soreen is a brand that makes malt loaf. Malt loaf is like a really sweet, heavy, sticky bread. The original flavour isn't vegan (as far as I'm aware?) which is unfortunate because I used to love it.

Guys! There might already be a post about this but I am having enough trouble navigating around the site on my phone due to not having internet.

At Sainsburys today, I saw this Mrs. Crimbles dutch apple cake? I'm sure someone has had it. Is it good? It looked pretty good. Said dairy & egg free and quick ingredient check appeared vegan?

I'm looking everywhere for Soreen products & came across this by chance.

i've had the stem ginger cake, which is indeed vegan. it's quite tasty, if a bit dry. i'd like to try the other flavors sometime.

Yep, Mrs Crimbles is good - especially lightly toasted with some Pure spread on it. And it's quite widely available, so it's always worth flagging up to colleagues and friends that it's vegan, on the offchance that you won't get left out when they bring cake for everyone else! Just double check because, if I remember rightly, some of the MC range has honey in.

Quite a lot of the Mrs Crimble stuff has milk or egg in: it seems to be mainly a wheat and/or gluten free range. The cakes are pretty good though.

I like the ginger mrs crimble cake, with some vitalite on it. Or some chocolate spread. It's a bit dry alone.

hmm, i'll have to try that sometime.

also: is it weird that Mr Ketchup and i prefer Vitalite to Pure? we bought Vitalite for the first time a few weeks ago because our local Co-op likes to stop stocking certain products all of a sudden, and it was the only vegan margarine they had at that time. we ended up really liking the taste, and when it was time to get some more, all they had was Pure. sigh.

Does anybody know if the cheapest morrison's marge type spread thing is vegan? I seem to remember a discussion about it a while back but I can't find anything.

Quite a lot of people prefer Vitalite, iirc. I certainly do. So of course all I can find lately is Pure. Boo-urns.

I've never had Pure, so I can't comment on that versus Vitalite, but I like Vitalite compared to EB (EB too salty, and that's what I hated about real butter, which I rarely used pregan anyway- but EB def is like real butter), and Vitalite is definitely better to me than Smart Balance Light (SBL too watery/fake tasting. Vitalite is a nice middle ground for me.

Rachell, I assume you've already looked at Morrison's?

I prefer vitalite. I also like Sainsbury's free from spread, which is what I bought last night as they didn't have any vitalite.

I also prefer vitalite, it's the most similar to what I remember butter tasting like. More sunflower spreads don't taste of much, which I guess is good if you want that, but I like my 'butter' to taste a bit salty, which vitalite does.

This may only be new to me, but Sainsbury's has a new range of Jus Rol stuff, in cans like the croissants (no filter). There's bread, garlic bread, something chocolatey and something pizza-ish, i think. I didn't have time to study the labels much but they certainly looked vegan at first glance.
