Kellog's All-Bran chocolate breakfast biscuits. Just found them in the cereal aisle of Asda today. They're quite good, and they're vitamin fortified. I read the ingredients a few times, and they seem to be vegan (they don't even have vit D). I don't think they had any other varieties. Nothing else in that section was vegan (I looked at several varieties of several brands), so this was a pleasant surprise. I would say, however, that they're more of a snack than a breakfast unless you're used to a small breakfast.

skips are vegan skips are vegan SKIPS ARE VEGAN!!! When did this happen, am I the last to know? I swear they used to have milk in. Now the milk is just in the 'may contain' section! So excited right now.

In a possibly-scary-for-omnis turn, nearly every kind of prawn cocktail crisps I've found have been vegan - they're flavoured with tomato and paprika, not itty bitty crustaceans. Lucky for us prawns are too expensive for crisps :) Me, I've been mainlining red doritos like a crazy woman of late. My pregan faves were the cheese ones, but the red ones are fantastic.

Also guac. Does anyone know of a kind that's readily available in supermarkets and doesn't have dairy? My choices in Te$co this weekend were shelf stable (with 3% avocado!) or fresh (with cream, double cream and sour cream in one tub!). I prefer to make it myself but it would be great to be able to grab a tub when I'm tired/lazy/don't have a ripe avocado. Also one that doesn't look like baby sick would be awesome lol

I know they've always been veggie, but I'm sure they used to have milk, so I used to buy the Sainsbury's own ones which didn't. But now it's definitely on the 'may contain' list on skips!

I have found vegan ready made guac before in the supermarket but I can't think where, I just check all the labels. I'll check it out when I go to Tesco at lunchtime. It's super annoying when they put dairy in.

I could've sworn the Sainsbury's guac at least used to be vegan. I haven't looked in a long time because I can't eat it. :(

I guess it's to pad it out, but last time I checked double cream was a hella lot more expensive than avocado or tomatoes. I've even been finding dairy sneaking into fecking hummus. Very annoying.

The fat reduced Sainsburys guacamole is vegan, but not the full fat one (has double cream in it).

Oh yes, and new accidentally vegan product....chocolate chip hob nobs!

They have the 'may contain nuts and milk' thing, but no animal ingredients listed. Score!

Chocolate chip hob nobs?! Musssst buy!

I bought some of the onion bhaji and the jalapeno hummous from Tesco the other day, both delicious. Annoyingly the one I went to didn't sell the Falafel one...which my mum's tesco sells. They also don't have any of those hummous's online...which sucks! I want all the hummus!

I could only find choc chip hobnobs that had butter oil in, i was so disappointed. Was that the old recipe?

Eta- or maybe a completely different thing? Maybe I need to try a bigger supermarket.

All the packets of chocolate chip Hob Nobs I've looked at list butter and whey as ingredients. Unless they've updated the recipe, but I got the impression these were a fairly new product anyway?

These are labeled as new, and they definitely don't have butter or whey in them.

Hmm, I think I'm perhaps looking at something different. The one's I've seen are chocolate chip Hob Nob 'cookies'.

Yep, the new ones don't have butter or whey in them and to be fair I haven't seen them in any supermarket, a customer very kindly bought me a packet from goodness knows where.

On another new find note....Sainers have a few new dips out in their fresh section, I've bought the butternut squash one which is clearly labelled vegan and will report back! I'm also tres excited to try the mexican sweetcorn one :)

Yeah, the cookies are different. These are just Hobnobs with chocolate chips in them. I got mine from a big massive Tesco while visiting my bff in Newcastle, so those of us who aren't near a giant Tesco might not be able to get them just yet. But they were on offer in the big giant Tesco.

I don't know how to link to it on my phone but I tweeted a link to an Instagram pic of the packaging yesterday.

I saw them in my local Tesco last night but didn't buy them because of the "natural flavouring." Does anyone know what it is because it was an awful tease. I ended up getting Fox's Dark Chocolate Chunky Cookies and Tesco hobnobs instead.

I bought a pack without checking, and they had milk. Maybe it's like the Oreos, the newer batches are vegan?

Don't they have MSG now? Not bothering if that's the case.
