My local Holland & Barrett have got quite a bit of Redwoods' stuff in their Penny Sale. I picked up a Meatless Feast Pizza and some Southern Fried Chicken Style Pieces. Also got a couple of those Veg Out Sausage Rolls and Slices as they're good for a snack on the go but generally a rip off at full price.

Are those Redwood pate thingies any good? I feel like a change from houmous as my sandwich filling.

I'm not a fan of the redwoods pates, but that's just me. The Tuna one is OK when mixed with mayo.

I prefer the granovita pates.

I must be the only person who doesn't like the Granovita pates. I think they taste like privates.

I got a few things in Holland & Barrett today in the penny sale, including Fry's pepper steak pies. It effectively made them about £2 a pack rather than £4. They're really good, I wish I could afford them normally.

Ha... I think they are gross too... Never noticed the connection with privates tho!!!
I really like the Redwoods mushroom & bean ones. The tuna one is just okay but I don't think it really be interested in buying it again.

Sainsburys has 500g jars of marmite for less than the 200g jar. I think it was about £2.60.

I just came home with 2 packages of beef-style slices, rashers, fish steaks and fingers, quarter pound burgers, schnitzel, and chunky strips for less than £12. Score! I might go to a better-stocked location at the weekend and get more stuff - it'd be nice to get a month's worth of sandwich slices for essentially half price.

I'm going back for the rashers on my next haul. Never tried them before, are they any good? Didn't see any burgers in my local one :(
I got the redwood sausages in the sale today, mini ones and the Lincolnshire ones. I do love a bit of sausage.

The redwoods rashers are awesome. Even my omni husband loves them. Good in a fry, good in a bacon sandwich, good on pizza, or in facon pancakes, or snaffled directly from the pan :)

The Redwood/Vbites chicken, duck & beef pieces are pretty good just baked in the oven for 20 minutes, you don't have to use them in a dish.

I haven't been able to get hold of the duck and beef ones, but I really like the chicken variety. Really good in things like enchiladas.

Speaking of VBites...they normally have some really tasty things out for < insert winter festival of choice here >. Do they have a version of a roasting joint, and is it any good? OH is still quite attached to the idea of a big roast dinner of some kind on the 25th.

I think the closest they do are the gammon, turkey and beef roasts. I suppose you could jam a piece of bamboo through the middle to simulate a bone.

They keep saying they're gonna bring back the haggis, but they keep not doing it (or saying they'll have it in January, which misses out at least 2 haggis-eating holidays.

VBITES have updated the Chicken/Beef style chunks. They have a different texture & nutritional content (and are currently in the penny sale at H&B):

I might try the chicken pieces then. I didn't like the old variation of them, so maybe they're better?

They don't taste as nice as the older version unfortunately. The taste reminds me of the chicken style roast but torn into shreds
