What's the deal with bournville chocolate? I know it used to have milk fat in it but I looked on a pack the other day and while it still says 'contains milk' it isn't in the iingredients and it says it is 'due to unavoidable cross-contamination' etc. Which most things seem to say anyway.

As I understand it, it has no milk ingredients but it's made in the same factory as milky stuff. I would have thought everything is washed down between batches, as hygiene is a big deal and so is product consistency and every batch has to be made under the same conditions.

They're probably just covering their backs against giving people allergic reactions. I think it's vegan, but if you have a severe dairy allergy, don't risk it. I think it depends slightly on how "pure" something has to be before you can call it vegan. If you'd share a washed-up mixing bowl with someone who uses eggs and butter to make their cakes, you're probably safe with Bourneville.

Interesting. Bourneville was vegan for a short while years ago (the thrill of being able to choose something from the Quality Street box at Xmas was immense!) but then they put butterfat in it and I haven't looked at it since.

I did not realise until yesterday (or had I read it I had forgot) that Tyrrells Crisps are (as the packet says) -

I'm confused about bourneville because the plain version has no butterfat in the ingredients, yet the rum & raisin/jamaican version does. Does that mean they use different chocolate recipes for what is essentially the same thing? Just one without the raisins and rum aroma?

The Co-operative do the same confusing thing. One bart of their plain chocolate had all vegan ingredients, but the peppermint flavoured bar in the same range, and the orange oil and spices one (also same range, very similar packaging) both have butterfat in. I don't understand why.

With own brand stuff, they're probably all made by different companies or in different manufacturing facilities. Pain in the butt, but that's modern production for ya!

Tell me more! Are they like small jam tarts? Or like a bigger pie that you have to cut?

Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?
I live 2 minutes from a Lidl (housing market collapsed so they built a supermarket instead of more houses...go figure) and I've yet to see these. Are they in the bakery or pre-packed? Enquiring minds must know! :)

I just checked ... the nearest Lidl to me is 15.93 miles so I shall be getting no raspberry tarts ... sigh

They're individual tarts - shortcrust pastry, deseeded raspberry jam, cream (like a lump of buttercream), and a sugary shell-type topping (not a hard shell - maybe it's fondant?). They're in the pre-packaged section. They also have pineapple which I think are vegan, though I didn't double check the veganness of those because I wasn't that interested. I found out from someone on the local vegan FB group, and someone else said they found them at Costcutter as well.

They look like this:

I thought I had replied to this but cannot see it ...

you are in Edinburgh where you have raspberry tarts AND those Co-op donuts that cannot be found here ... never mind, we stop in Edinburgh for three days after xmas on our way to the Highlands and my husband has been told that there are several places I want to go besides the Carson Clark Gallery on the Royal Mile.

obviously ... we are going out to look at an auction shortly ... I will convince him that wherever it is (I have forgot what he said), it is close to St Neot's where the closest Lidl is ...

Thanks for the detailed info, they sound fab! Can everyone else see the photo? I can't and find it so much easier when I know what I'm looking for so if the link is broken can you fix it please.

Don't forget to go and try the vegan cakes and hot chocolate at the Chocolate Tree in Bruntsfield while you're in Edinburgh :)

You look so kind but type so cruel ! ;-)

Just returned from a jaunt around some villages, a pub lunch (where all I had to eat was side dishes of veg) and we stopped at THREE Co-ops to find ... ah, nothing of particular interest ... did I care? was I distressed? no, I have accepted the shoddy shelf supply / stocking that we English apparently must endure ...

Bruntsfield eh? making a note in my Dec diary MUST DO column ...

You made me go to Lidl. Lidl. And there were no cakes. I blame all of you.

I don't know what's up with that image - it worked when I previewed! I resized it but didn't save the resized photo, but you can see it on my blog - I just posted about cheap finds at Lidl. Also, sorry you missed out on the tartiness. They always have loads in my Lidl - I went in at 5.30pm and they still had a nearly full rack of them. They're in there with the packaged cakes and stuff, if that helps.

Breaking news... the student shop at the University where I have a clinic is now selling Nice n' Spicey Nik Naks. Someone tell me quickly if they're no longer vegan or this lady's going on a Nik Nak rampage...
