Vegan Friendly Finds – Mr Tom Bars

How have I lived my whole life without these?

Mr Tom is a crunchy, moreish, yummy, dare I say it SCRUMMY peanut bar.

Mr Tom

And check this out:

THE MR.TOM PEANUT CRUNCH CONSISTS OF 60% FRESHLY ROASTED PEANUTS COVERED WITH CARAMEL AND FORMED INTO BARS. WHILE BEING SIMILAR TO PEANUT BRITTLE, MR.TOM BARS ARE SURPRISINGLY LIGHT, CRISP AND EASY TO EAT AND VERY,VERY MOREISH! ONCE THE FIRST MOUTHFUL HAS BEEN CRUNCHED UP AND DEVOURED WITH RELISH, YOU JUST WANT TO REPEAT AND REPEAT THE EXPERIENCE UNTIL THE WHOLE BAR HAS BEEN DEMOLISHED. DISAPPOINTMENT THEN REIGNS, AS YOU MENTALLY KICK YOURSELF FOR ONLY BUYING ONE OF THESE BEAUTIFUL PEANUT BARS. THEY ARE ALSO VEGAN AND VEGETARIAN FRIENDLY AND ARE A GOOD SOURCE OF PROTEIN AND ENERGY. IF YOU LOVE NUT CONFECTIONARY THIS IS THE BAR FOR YOU!

Best of all you can get them at Poundland!

Vegan Friendly Finds – Jammy Dodgers

So it turns out these have been ‘known’ for a while, but as I only found out a few weeks back I had to share, in case anyone else hadn’t heard the exciting news that Jammy Dodgers are now vegan!!

  

At a children’s party with a buffet and nothing to eat? Pick up one of these beauties! Or better yet pick up the chocolate dodger as they too are vegan my friends! 

    

It’s getting easier and easier to get junk food as a vegan. I both love and hate this! 

Enjoy!

Vegan friendly Find – Lotus Spread

So, you know those little Lotus biscuits you get with coffee? Well they’re vegan. But that’s not what this blog is about, so move onto the fact that some genius has made it into a spread. 

Yep. Buiscuit flavoured spread. 

It blew my mind. It will blow yours. 

Someone needs to make cupcakes with this pronto!

Vegan Friendly Find – Skittles are back!

YYYYYYYAAAAAYYYYYYY! Now we can taste the rainbow.

Right! Skittles were always vegan in America, but not the UK because they contained – E120 cochineal.

But now it’s been removed from UK packs! 🙂

index

Note: The Wrigley’s Website still lists E120 as an ingredient but it is no longer listed on a back of the packet and it says “Suitable for Vegetarians” :

So – just check your pack for E120 and if it doesn’t have it you should be good to go.

Also – for those like me who don’t like to eat non sustainable Palm Oil.

  • What is Wrigley’s policy on sourcing palm oil?

    Wrigley, a subsidiary of Mars, deals only with those suppliers who have respect for the environment. Wrigley is committed to working with all stakeholders to make progress towards more sustainable production. We support the environment and the sustainable production of palm oil.

    Currently, we only use palm oil suppliers that are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), and our aim is to move to 100% RSPO certified palm oil, originating from sustainable sources by 2015.

    The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), a non-profit association, works to promote the growth and use of sustainable palm oil through cooperation within the supply chain and open dialogue between its stakeholders. More information on the RSPO can be found at www.rspo.org.

Vegan Friendly Find – Jus Roll Pastry

I’m a lazy cook. I’m not making pastry… and now you don’t have to either!

Jus-roll pastry is Vegan!

Here’s what it says on their website: http://www.jusrol.co.uk/askjanet.aspx

Which products are suitable for Vegans?
All Jus-Rol Ingredient Pastry is suitable for vegans except our All Butter and Sweet Shortcrust products which contain butter.

That means a whole world of tarts, puffs, pies and party treats have just become a whole lot easier!

The only issue I can find is one that Jus Roll contains Palm Oil – HOWEVER they claim to use sustainable Palm Oil in cooperation with the RSPO (http://www.rspo.org/) this seems like a go to me – but I couldn’t help notice a tweet that made me think the RSPO might just be a marketing front:

Either way it’s up to you guys – the product is vegan 100% – it’s just the ethics behind it might not be so ethical.

Let me know if you know whether the RSPO is doing good work or not – then I can get baking too!
