OMG I need to go to poundland! Morrisons used to do the chewy vimto sweets which I think were vegan if I remember right, but I haven't seen them in there in a while.

I saw the chocolate covered raisins in sainsbury's today. £2.89 for a 75g bag!!! I though fork that and bought Choices caramels instead.


Just to let you know, I totally wasted my money on these a few weeks ago and they were terrible. It made me sad because chocolate covered raisins were always my favourite.

Thanks for taking one for the team, S-J. I'd have always wondered what I was missing out on because I can't bring myself to spend that much. I miss chocolate covered raisins. I'll just have to make my own! Ooooh and maybe chocolate covered almonds at the same time... mmmm.

I bought some during a PMS-induced sugar rampage, and liked them. Maybe I was hormonal and crazy at the time? And I only paid £1.59 for them.

I thought they were quite good too, but not worth the money.

I thought they were okay. They are not the best though, however it was nice to be able to eat chocolate covered raisins again.

Sainsburys (the mustards) seem to have stopped selling the good chocolate/white buttons and replaced them with small, overpriced, own brand bags of buttons instead.

Not amused.

Oh PPKpals - you let me down bad. Baaaad. Carnation Cinnamon Rice Pudding shiitake is rank. It's like wallpaper paste with semi-digested chunks in it.

I wasn't keen either, I thought it was really runny but wasn't sure if I'd just not remembered how rice pudding used to be

Where do you find it? I think I'd still like to try it. It's been sooo long since I've had rice pudding!

I like the caramel one, I haven't tried cinnamon one yet, maybe I'll leave that one.

Which section of the supermarket are the jus rol croissants in? I have looked and looked in Sainsburys and ASDA and can't find them.


In the fridge section with the shortening & ready to roll pastry.

Anyone know if the Jus Roll croissants are still available?
I'd been meaning to have them for brunch on Valentine's day with chocolate spread (it is the first time I'll be in a relationship on this day and I think I'd feel weird doing anything fancier, but yummy, easy breakfast sounds good. Suppose I could make pancakes. Or heat up hash browns and beans.)

Anyway, I couldn't find them in the really big Sainsbury's today. I think I know where they should be- they're made a new corner in the chilled section with the pastry and Jus Roll pizza and Jus Roll white rolls, but no sign of croissants.
Anyone have ideas?

In my local Sainsbury they are between the yoghurts and the margerine. They have Jus Roll pain au chocolat too.

And they're still listed on Sainsbury's online shopping, so you should be able to request some from your local.

This might have been a topic on here somewhere, but my search was futile. Peanuts: Where can I get any that are cheap and without gelatin??

Peanuts have gelatin?

Hey I know this isn't "accidentally vegan" but I can't find another thread that it would be appropriate in to ask: has anyone had Fabulous Fudge Factory Dairy Free Fudge? I saw it the other day at Holland and Barrett (it was new to that store) and wondered if it was any good.

Meggs, I have, but since I don't have a sweet tooth and don't really remember eating dairy fudge, I'm not the best person to ask. But I ate it all and didn't dislike it.

I have never seen peanuts with gelatin but I agree it can be a pain to find them unroasted or unsalted and without shells. I use Julian Graves. But I have a feeling you're in the US?

Meggs, I am a fudge lover with a very sweet tooth and that shiitake is amazing! My Sainsburys does it in the free from section for way cheaper than Holland and Barrett.

Co-op's part bake bread rolls have been rejigged and are now vegan and pretty useful.

i don't have a particularly sweet tooth and as a result tend to be somewhat picky over the sweet things i do actually eat. and yes, basically that dairy free fudge is totally worth getting!


also, with regard to the peanuts/gelatin question, i've never ever known peanuts to contain gelatin in any way at all, but you are aware that this is the UK section of the forum aren't you?
wouldn't be the first time a non-UK based ppk'er posted something in here by mistake...
