I absolutely loved taking part in Veganuary; even during the tough and downright emotional times it felt so good to be doing my little (or big?) bit for the world and all the animals within it. Each time I shopped or had a nose at vegan food online, I was quite surprised to find so many amazing accidentally vegan treats…
You can see a large list of accidentally vegan food and drink here, but today I want to talk about my super favourite vegan treats and share them with you. Just in case you didn’t know these delicious treats were vegan, you will now!
I actually think it’s quite funny that a lot of people on this plant based diet did the same as Warren and I during January (and February… and March… yes, we need to stop!). Basically, if you discover something is vegan, you kinda get really excited, buy it and scoff it. We’re talking cakes, chocolate, biscuits, crisps…
So if you do this, you are not alone! But I’ve also heard form long-term vegan that this ‘phase’ of gorging on vegan treats soon comes to an end, so I’m enjoying it whilst I can! Besides, I start a super fit plan from Monday so I have no excuse but to kerb it, but for now…
The Best Accidentally Vegan Food Out There in the UK!
1. Custard and jam doughnuts from Co-Op
First on my list is a more-ish choice, perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons. We live right next to Co-Op so we’ve tried both types (more than once!) and they’re amazing!
Oreos are one of our family’s favourite treats! We love to snack on these lovely biscuits on our PJ days, dipping them in tea or separating the two halves before tucking in. They’ve recently started an #OreoCookieQuest where lovers of the tasty Oreo can win amazing prizes through an on-pack promotion. Our #OreoCookieQuest involves finding new and interesting ways to eat them! How do you eat yours?!
3. Co-Op Bacon Rashers
I know, what a shocker?! Most Bacon Rashers I find are vegan. Don’t forget to check the ingredients fully, but I know that Co-Op sell vegan ones and they are delicious! Check out this post by Vegan Womble for more Co-Op vegan goodies…
4. Jus Roll Products
Jus Roll have a fab selection of vegan goodies, including their croissants and cinnamon swirls. They are so easy to use, fun to make a delicious to eat!
5. Fruit Bowl Treats
George and Molly have long been a fan of the Fruit Bowl range, and if you skip the yogurt coated options you’re left with some very scrummy vegan treats for the kids….
6. Prawn Cocktail Crisps
Yes, thank goodness these are vegan! They are one of my favourite flavours of crisps (I’m still getting over cheese and onion, but it’s completely worth it for animal welfare!) so I love the fact that I can still have a packet (or two!) when I feel the urge.
7. Biscoff (in any form!)
When we discovered Biscoff biscuits were vegan, we were beyond happy. But then we discovered the smooth spread. Imagine the joy?! Then we discovered the crunchy spread. Life changing. I mean, could this brand do anything more?! (I d hear ice cream is in the pipeline!).
As I’ve already said, recipes change all the time, so please make sure you check before you tuck in!
There are so many more vegan friendly treats out there in UK supermarkets, please do share your amazing finds because I always need a good excuse to have a little treat!
