Tinned vegetarian bolognese in sainsburys, it tasted alright, I added some extra dried soya mince and pepped it up, but it was okay.

IKEA pre-made gingerbread dough seems to be vegan.

Cool - we've had biscuits from there (which appear to be vegan from the ingredients list), but missed the dough. We're trying to purge our house of ikea furniture at the moment, but still seem to end up there occasionally.

Biscoff Lotus biscuit spread stuff in Waitrose. I didn't buy it, as I could really do with NOT eating a whole jar of biscuits in paste form, but I feel content just knowing that it's there.

Liz, weljel!!

Morrisons have these new cup a soups in their wanky NuMe range. I bought a couple as at least 3 flavours look to be vegan. So far I've only tried the pea & mint ones and they taste how I believe a cup of peas and some mint would taste if satan ate them and then shat them out. DISGUSTING!! GAAAHHHH BLAGGAAAGASDKFJLKSDFJLSD Seriously, just thinking about it is making me feel a bit ill.

I know it's not really new, but a work fan swapped me a block of the Tesco 'mild soy' cheese for some agar powder she couldn't find. It's amazing melted - just tastes like red Leicester once it's melted. It's so cheese-like when hot that I keep making the mistake of picking at it cold (and promptly making cat-like faces of disgust).


I just discovered this too, and was so excited to find that my arse-end-of-nowhere Tescos stocks it, but I really don't like it :(

I was a cheddar/parmesan/mozerella only girl when I did eat cheese so I'm definitely picky, but to me it tasted more like blue cheese than the mild/bland/boring white cheese I was expecting. To other more sophisticated types that might be a good thing but HWORF! (Text rendition of cat retching noise)

Someone might have already said this but Tesco have a vegan sandwich and a wrap. Sandwich is Houmous and carrot and the wrap is falafel and houmous.

I know they're not that original but the sandwich is actually really good, it's carrot chutney and it's way better than that dry old bugsy sandwich they used to sell in boots.

Ooh, good to know when I forget to make lunch since I have a Tesco within 5 minutes' walking distance from the office.

I'm sure this has already been mentioned but - Almond Breeze almond milk! I found it in Tesco. It's been available in the US for years, I'm so happy to see it here in the UK now. I know the alpro almond milk has been available for a while, but it has WAY too much sugar in it for me. :P And I've seen a few other brands of almond milk, but they were way too expensive. I like that Almond Breeze comes in an UNSWEETENED variety, and is actually affordable. If you haven't tried it already, go for it!

Tesco have some new own-brand soups that appear to be vegan. I tried the Lentil, Bean and Barley, which was really good, and the Mexican Chili Bean, which I had to throw out. Seriously, the potatoes in it were crunchy. I'll be writing Tesco a strongly worded email about that shiitake.

Can't wait for the redwoods stuff to come out, I'm going to buy the salmon slices in bulk, I emailed them and apparently they are only out at Christmas time and Easter. Shame really because they are so so so good.
Might try the gammon, even though I don't like real gammon. It's just salty and sore looking. *shudders*

2 weeks until they're available, woooooo!

I don't know if anyone else has seen this, but I saw chard at Tesco today. (I'm considering this a new product because it's the first time I've seen it outside the farmers market/Whole Foods.)

The Morrisons on Portobello Road often sells chard- several different types. I was surprised to see it as I'd only had homegrown before,; never seen it in a shop.

They don't seem to have bags of spinach though, which everywhere else has!

Oooh! Usually potentially vegan sandwiches have margarine or mayo or some crepe in so this is good news for me! I'm very lazy and pretty much always buy lunch so this pleases me immensely. Thanks :)

I've found out somewhere that if the "V" on a Tesco product is white then it is vegan. If it is black then it is only vegetarian.

There vegan list is here http://www.scribd.com/doc/25508083/Tesco-Vegan-List

How excited was I to discover UK Sour Patch kids in Tesco? And how annoyed was I to discover that thanks to beef gelatine they are not even vegetarian let alone vegan?

Brought to you by the same team that dump whey powder in Oreos.
