alpro dark chocolate and vanilla are my favourites.
i think i might try them swirled together some time too...

i don't like the texture of the provamel ones. they're too firm, i find.

I concur that the taste and texture is spot-on for jell-o pudding, I just wasn't too keen on the provamel chocolate taste. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't awesomely chocolatey enough for me to run out and buy more, either. Maybe I'll give the Alpro ones a go, as the 4-pack is only 1 quid at my local Tesco.
Thanks for the tips.


If you can get your mitts on the dark chocolate ones, they are waaaay better than the normal chocolate ones and are far more addictive. That said, I'd pay good money for a perfume that smells like the vanilla flavour ones. oh my!

I'm not sure if I had the dark chocolate or the regular chocolate ones. I wasn't picky- I was just so excited by the ability to have a pudding-like dessert! Nah, it was probably regular chocolate, as it was lighter in colour.
I'll give the Alpro ones a go since they're cheap... which should I try first? If I get them all, I'll eat them all, and everyone seems to like every flavour! Probably chocolate. You can't go wrong with chocolate.

I do like the Provamel vanilla yoghurt a lot. I can eat that whole container in one or two sittings. Sometimes it's good with granola mixed in, but it's great on its own, too.

Innocent veg pots are half price in Tesco. About half of them are vegan all are vegetarian. At £1.89 I don't think they are cheap but sometimes it's great to have a healthy vegan ready meal that cooks in 4 minutes...

I finally have an address so I got a loyalty card today! Woo! I also saved £5.89 between the sales they were having and the receipt survey discount thing!

Do the big stores vary with what they have on sale or did I miss it? Because my Waitrose didn't have Oatly on sale, they just had a price match for Tesco's price. Lame. I was very much looking forward to saving on some Oatly.

They tend to have the same sales, but they're kinda hard to predict. Sometimes a shop will have, for instance, Alpro soya milk on sale 2/£1.50 for what seems like over a month, and other times I'll go in a few days apart and a sale will have come and gone in the space of a week.

Thanks for the clarification, Rachell. I need to be on the ball about these sales.

there's usually some kind of semi-coded end date for sale prices on the reduced tag on the display shelf, i can't remember which shops make it clear and which ones are more cryptic but perhaps if we spot sale items maybe we could try to incorporate end dates for the reduced price too on this thread? that could be helpful; i'll try and have a look in a couple of places and work out if it's easy to tell or not over the next few days.

Almond speculoos biscuits were/are on sale at Morrisons for £1.50 for 2 (or close to that; I'll check again tomorrow and also make sure the sale is still on).
Also Morrisons and Sainsburys have Alpro puddings on sale for 2 for £2.50 or £1.50 ea.

Sainsbury's have revamped their frozen free from line and have it on sale 2/£3, I think. They also added some new stuff, including sausages and sausage rolls that are both vegan (as far as I can tell - they didn't label them as such). And Sainsbury's has Linda McCartney sausages half off and other things in that range on sale (though I'm not sure if anything else on sale is vegan).

I thought Sainsbury's and Co-op always labelled their own brand stuff if it's vegan? Shame if that's not the case now ...

Sainsbury's don't label if something "may contain traces of" dairy or something.

Yeah it's frustrating with sainsbury's. Sometimes stuff labeled vegetarian is vegan too.

I got those the other day but they didn't have an explicit "sale" sign so I didn't say anything. I don't know typical prices yet...even though that seemed super cheap. I don't like them much compared to Redwood, but it was good to try them, and that's so cheap!
