Farmfoods are doing two packs of Linda McCartney sausages for £2.

I almost forgot to post this!

Sainsbury's is having a sale on baking ingredients. I got 6 things of Taste the Difference Madagascan vanilla extract for £3.96 (66p each) and a kilo (10 packets) of chocolate chips for £4.80! I think Bonnington's sugars are included in the sale, and I love their light muscovado in place of regular old brown sugar. Oh, and they also have tetra packs of not from concentrate juice for £1 each (normally £1.34 last time I checked, but it looked like they may have jacked up the price).

Linda McCartney sausage rolls are 2/£2 at Tesco. And their frozen free from range is 2/£3, though that seems to be an allatimes thing (I think it's actually printed on the packages). Too bad they only have 3 things in that range that are vegan.

Bourgeois Boheme are having an end of line sale on many of their shoes (for both men & women) and so if you happen to be an unusual size then you can get some vegan friendly ethically produced shoes for cheaps! (It seems to be only size 6 or 6.5 left for the guys)

I love BoBo - they're awesome. I wish they'd hurry up and get new stuff in though. I want some new boots!

They just added some of their new stuff yesterday Sal! I want the new MT Agnes, but in brown like they had at the fair!

Morrisons has Redwoods slices at 2 for £2. They also had an Oxford Crossing Chardonnay that is suitable for veggies & vegans reduced too!

Sorry for more questions. Where would this be located in my local store (near what)? I've never seen these before.

meggs, if you find the Quorn in the chilled food section, it'll be lurking there!

Post subject:  Re: Bargain basement - what's on sale?

Oh! It's a frozen thing? It says on my Morrison's website that it's a "fresh" thing. What would I do without the PPK? Thank you so much!
I don't even really know what Redwoods stuff is, but I'm going to check it out/try it out!

Post subject:  Re: Bargain basement - what's on sale?

meggs, it's not frozen, just needs to be kept refridgerated.

redwoods make cheezly, btw! they also do tons of meat sub stuff and they're a 100% vegan company; the slices in morrison's are sage and onion flavoured and good for making sandwiches with, basically.

Excellent! Thank you! I need something easy to take to classes with me so I don't end up spending tonnes of extra money on cafe food (as tasty and vegan as the cafe sandwiches are).
The only faux meat I've had so far has been travel sausages. I miss tofurkey slices for sandwiches; I'm sure redwoods will be great!

Sorry for the confusion!

Travel sausages are also a redwoods product, so if you like them there's a good chance you'll enjoy the slices! they are great in a sammich... or straight out the fridge into your mouth as a filthy snack.

This annoys the fork outta me. Who only has 1 sausage???? It's like you're forced to buy two boxes.


(I always buy two boxes anyway, but that's beside the point)

No bother, hana! I went to Morrison's and mine doesn't have the Redwoods products, but it's cool that Morrison's has meat free products, even if some of them have egg in. They also carry Linda McCartney, which I've never tried either. (But I bought the other travel sausages on the way home in case Morrison's didn't have the Redwood's product; I don't trust my stores to have the cool stuff y'all talk about, and good thing I didn't!)

And now I really want the redwoods slices, because they've been described as a great "filthy snack."

They do sell them at Holland & Barrett too but they aren't on offer at the moment.
Usually in the different Morrisons I go in the vegan redwood slices (I get the sage & onion it's delicious- I can't even contemplate the beef one it looks too real!), cauldron tofu & other refrigerated, vegan/veggie stuff is opposite the meat section!!!
I've enclosed the link so you can see all the range.

Apparently they are now owned by Heather Mills McCartney. Since she bought the company the range has expanded massively.
