I have been stalking the shelves here for weeks, but no joy. It's almost as annoying as Aldi doing own brand shredded wheat in some countries, but not here.

They do have accidently vegan mince pies. They're in a red box - 12 to the pack. Had one last night for purely scientific purposes and they're lovely warmed up with a splodge of soycream.

If it makes you feel any better I've been looking too and can't find any raspberry tarts in South London or Brighton. I don't know if I can face a further trip in search of mince pies but I don't think there are vegan ones anywhere else are there? Waitrose usually have mini ones with a star top but haven't seen them so far. I suppose maybe it's a bit early for a full range to be stocked so something might turn up.

Veggies is trying to find every vegan mince pie possible, so far they have been spotted in Morrisons, Tesco & Iceland:
http://veggies.co.uk/?s=mince+pies
Also Asda have 2 that look vegan:
http://groceries.asda.com/asda-webstore ... t/80190872

http://groceries.asda.com/asda-webstore ... t/80067677

Also Asda have Mince Pie kits (6 baked cases & 6 stars to go on top, all you have to do is put them together and bake), I've seen them in store but can't find them online.

Whilst on the subject of Asda these biscuits are so good I ate 3 packs last Christmas:

Almost all of the standard range jars of mince meat I've checked have been vegan as well, including Marks. It's only the fancy ranges that seem to have icky bits like lard in them. (As if they aren' calorific enough already). Jar of mince, pack of jus-rol and Bob's your uncle!

I always make the pastry by hand. Not sure why. Just something I've always done Christmas Eve. This year I may try pouring some uncooked brandy sauce inside.

P.S. Baps -Mince Pies are heavenly

They are mouse poo in pastry. They are a waste of perfectly good pastry. blech.

I'm fairly certain I say this every year.

Well for those of you that don't like mince pies Mr Kipling has brought out 'winter warmers' which are 6 little fruit pies - 2x Rhubarb 2x Plum, Pear & cinnamon, and 2x apple and cranberry. Not tried them, but they appeared vegan.

I love them. We may have to agree to disagree over them. Th only other way to settle it would be a mince pie eating contest....

Lidl has a Cookie Crisp rip-off that appears to be vegan, so of course I bought some. It tastes like Cookie Crisp, but it's really tiny (which may be the size of CC now anyway - I haven't eaten it in years). And I just bought some raspberry tarts, so they're still available. Maybe it's one of the few times that something is only available in Scotland!

I don't understand why their apple and blackcurrant six packs are vegan, but the plain apple ones aren't. Grr!
I'm gonna look out for the winter warmer ones though - mmmmrhubarb.

Metcalfe's Wasabi popcorn. OMG! I normally have the sweet/salty one which I also love but I saw this one today so I thought it'd give it a go.

Costa is doing a Hot Spiced Apple drink which is delicious...sucks that they have no vegan food (at least I don't think they do?) but it's a nice winter drink

Asda has tiger bagels. I haven't actually tried them yet, but how could they possibly not be amazing?

Wait, what? I always thought tiger bread had cheese on top. Is the top just crust? I feel... so many years... wasted...
