The pepperjack bites are insanely good with the Vcon creamy tomato soup. Just sayin'.

I am super in love with moo free chocolate.

oooh, i will have to make that soup soon before the Cheezly things go off.


i'm kind of powerless around the Moo Free pralines. veganstore.co.uk currently have them on sale for 5.99. i ordered 2 boxes about a week ago and only have one chocolate left.

I discovered these Redwood breaded pepperjack style cheezly bites. I shallow fry them and just eat them. I think they really taste like cheese, or I forgot what cheese tastes like. Doesn't matter I love them. I found them at H&B on High Street Kensington but haven't seen them in any other H&B.

i bought these because my local HFS had them on offer for a pound (they were short-dated) but haven't tried them yet. good to hear that they're tasty! has anyone tried them baked?



I'll try them baked tonight. I think they are so good cause I fry them. But in the name of "vegan taste science" I will bake them. A pound? My HFS which is As Nature Intended, has everything more expensive than anywhere else. Except when they mark things down because they are going out of date.



They need to be fried. They turned into a mush of cheezy gooey stuff in the oven. I ate them anyway.

Oh and in answer to the post.
i like...

-Canned mock meats, the stuff you get from chinese supermarkets, ya know..mock duck, mock chicken..

-OR the seitan that comes in a jar! its chewy and firm!

-Booja booja ice creams

-Swedish glace particularly the raspberry one and the vanilla one

-Redwoods fish fingers.

-I REALLY REALLY like redwoods chicken pieces when I make sweet and sour chicken balls with them, but i dont have that chicken otherwise because its more fatty than the canned seitan.

-Vanilla soy protein powder from myprotein.com

-The mock crab sticks/ prawns from veggieworld... JUST LIKE THE REAL THING, its quite scary.

-Redwoods tuna style pate, cleared my tuna craving right up. Also pleasant in a creamy pasta bake.

Yes me too on the Redwoods tuna pate. I make vegan tunafish sandwiches with mayo, celery etc.
I have not heard of Veggieworld (feels like I've been hiding under a rock) and looking at the site now! Holy Shiitake! I gotta get me some of that stuff.

Redwood sage sausages
Vegan Mayo, the stuff in H&B (too lazy to move to the fridge and check)

I got through a packet and a jar in 2 days when I discovered them both - sausage and fried potato wraps with mayo and chilli sauce if your wondering, wasn't my healthiest of weeks but what a joy discovering vegan mayo :)

And smoked tofu - never will normal tofu grace my fajita's again. That stuff is AMAZING.

and the millionaire shortbread you get in Sainsbugs free from section isn't bad either.

Alpro 'fruit and creamy' cherry yoghurt is on introductory offer for 75p (comes in a pack of 2) at Sainsbury's, and really good. According to the Alpro website there's also a peach flavour, and more excitingly, a pouring yoghurt. Has anyone seen/tried it?

The Lazy Days tiffin slices are really good. Choices caramels are amazing, but I only ever found them once in my local Tesco and I've never seen them anywhere since. I recently got some of the Fry's chicken strip things and had them in a wrap with lettuce and sweet chilli sauce and they were so good. I very rarely eat any of those mock meat type things (I'd usually much rather have tofu if anything other than veg/ pulses etc), because I'm a bit funny about them, but they were tasty.

The Taifun smoked tofu with sesame seeds and almonds is also amazing and pretty versatile. It tastes great just sliced up by itself.

It used to be. I went to buy a new bottle last week and good job I checked the ingredients again as it now has egg in it. It's a shame because it was decent salad cream.

WHUT.
Are you sure the label is not wrong... like, it's not a regular salad cream label put onto a light salad cream bottle?
Because that happened to me before... the labels were mixed up.

I didn't think to check that. I suppose it's worth another look. I think my eyes saw the word 'eggs' and I instantly dropped it in disgust.

Yes definitely do!
I was horrified when I looked on the back of the light salad cream I bought, and I made myself a salad with some on, checked the back while I was eating , saw 'egg' , spat it out and the bottle remained in our fridge, until I noticed it said light on the front label and just salad cream on the back, the calories were high for a light version too, so thats when I realised.

WHAT?! That's it! Next time I go to ASDA I'm going to take a leaf out of my cats' book and have a big old protest poo by the salad creams.

I recently discovered that Moo Free do a honeycomb chocolate. OH MY WORD. It's so good. I tried Choices caramels again too and I loved them the first time, which was years ago but now I find them too sweet.

Oh and Clif bars, they are also a new discovery to me, the choc chip and the peanut butter ones. Yum!

Wasn't sure where to put this. Since it's been available here I've been using Kara coconut as my all purpose milk for tea, baking etc. I switched to the small cartons for a while
because even though they are more expensive I was throwing a lot of it away. I just switched back to the big box and it is SO COCONUTTY. Like, I never even detected coconut there before but this tastes like someone has put a shot of malibu in my tea. I notice it says now contains B12 and vitamin D on the box, so I don't know if that has something to do with it, or if I maybe got a rogue box (I got a crate of 12). Anyone else use it?

I tried it at the Vegan Fayre ad, like you, thought it was fab, but when I bought a UHT carton
from the supermarket it was overwhelmingly coconutty, to the extent I ended up throwing it away.
