I have to be honest I thought the vegan releases would slow down a tad after the storm of Veganuary, but many brands are still going for gold this month.
One of the supermarkets that is always on point with its vegan options, ASDA released the Squeaky Bean range in 300 of its stores. The range of ‘chicken’ nuggets, kievs and ‘fish’ fingers were introduced to keep up with the demand for more vegan options and it all looks delish!
I’m ashamed to say I still haven’t tried the vegan menu at Wagas and I’ve got my eyes on that vegatasu big time! Wagamama launched a full English vegan breakfast exclusively for their restaurants in Gatwick and Heathrow. Let’s hope it’s proven popular enough to spread to its other locations.
The First Vegan Cheesemonger
This is something I thought I’d never see, the first ever entirely vegan cheesemonger opened in Brixton, London. La Fauxmagerie sells award winning cashew, almond, soy and brown rice-based cheeses from UK based brands and the dairy industry is quaking in their boots!
The vegan junk food game is strong and sainos have changed the recipes of their doughnuts making them SFV. Thanks to sainsburys, morrisons and co-op satisfying my doughnut craving needs. Make sure you check the allergens list at your local store as some ingredients may differ.
The OG dairy-free ice cream brand has brought out two new flavours; cinnamon with toffee sauce & almond pieces and coconut with blueberry sauce & coconut sprinkles. The new products are available in most major supermarkets, someone get me that cinnamon ice cream.
Another monthly mention for the chain who have now launched a vegan menu. They introduced vegan pizzas to their menus back in 2017 but with a dedicated list of vegan BBQ Jack n Cheese, vegan Virtuous Veg, cinnamon bites and more!
The Equals Burger
I know, I know yet another meat-free burger but the story behind this makes it a winner. ABP Group, a major beef company launched its first vegan burger this month which is available in ASDA aiming to meet the growing demand for meat alternatives.
After the launch of Plant Kitchen you’d think Mark’s and Spencer’s could do no more but the big brains at the supermarket created vegan ‘heart’ beet burgers in time for Valentines Day, cute.
A non food item but equally exciting, luxury furniture brand Chesterfields have released a vegan leather range of their 18th century style sofas, fancy!
An honorable mention to Greggs who’s shares have risen more than 10% to the highest ever level since the launch of their vegan sausage roll.
