I can't find anything about this on the internets. Is it some kind of syrupy thing? What does the bottle look like? I need this in my life.

On the topic of ice cream, does anyone know of any good sorbets? I like the Tesco Raspberry one, but could do with some more options...

Woah. That'd be *super*! But I'll check my local Tescopoly Express to see if they've got it firsties!

It should be called EARTHBALANCESCOTCH. I have been making banana soft serve again and it is really just so much like ice cream. It'd be awesome with that on top I think.

(Edited because I used the word awesome twice and was emabarrased.)

I can report that the butterscotch is really good. It reminded me of the butterscotch topping I used to get in the US. Super sweet, but nummy.


fingers crossed that my girlfriend doesn't read this thread, then i can surprise her with this stuff (she was saying at the weekend how much she likes butterscotch flavoured things)!

Information here. It doesn't say on there if they're vegan, but it says so on the bottle. The chocolate is definitely not vegan, but I didn't check the strawberry.

Oh gosh yes, these are wonderful. I only occasionally buy them now because I can happily devour the whole packet in one go.

Yahs! Although, I usually add a small splash of plain soymilk and a half teaspoon of vanilla - just to get the party started.

A big spoonful of peanut butter in there can be fun too.

After years of oatcake taste testing, I can now confidently proclaim PATERSONS to be the king of oatcakes. The black pepper ones are awesome too.

I don't know if it's accidentally vegan but I just had a salad from M&S - super wholefood or something, with a mint vinagrette - it's bloody lovely!! Normally I don't like pre-packed salads but this one was really good. also, they now do a vegan wrap sandwich as well - butternut squash and red pepper hummus. It could do with some salt, but it's not bad and handy if you're stuck at a service station with an M&S!

Holy shiitake. You win UK Food Finds.

FOREVER.


dude. Toryglen Asda.

Noooooo... my flatmates ordered an Asda delivery and I couldn't find the syrup on their internet shopping site. It also isn't in the big Sainsbury's (their ice cream toppings are all a different brand). Oh well, I'll have a look in Toryglen Asda when I'm back home for the summer.

In the M&S Food at a train station I found loads of vegan meal salads! They weren't labelled as vegan. I got one with quinoa and green lentils and a whole load of other stuff; it was yummy.

Hrmm, you're right. Although they're also saying they don't recognise my postcode, which is total bullshiitake. Who knows!

morrisons have started making a frozen falafel and spinach 1/4 pounder burger (in packs of 2) that appears fine to me; not tried them yet but i reckon some time this week i will be! 2 packs for 3 quid, like most of their own-brand frozen veggie stuff.

The ingredients on their website say they have shellac. I had been momentarily excited there (funnily enough, such things can be bought in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland too as far as I'm aware...) Sadface.

Wow. It didn't look like that before. Whoops! Here:

ETA: Just in case that doesn't show up either, it's a vegan dark chocolate with praline (that you can get in Waitrose) called Isis Pralinoir.

I finally managed to track this down while we were in Brighton. Why didn't I buy a case?! This is easily one of the best chocolate bars I've ever eaten. It's so. freaking. good. I'm gonna have to talk to someone at the Waitrose in Edinburgh and tell them to start stocking this.

I love that praline chocolate Rachell! It's so nice!

Speaking of Waitrose, they now do a vegan chilli bean wrap. it's rather nice, especially in a pinch!
