Exciting new vegan food you need to try this spring
Vegan food has never been so tasty.
1. Oumph! mock-meats
If you are into your vegan faux-meats, then you need to try the new ‘Oumph’ range which hit 400 Tesco stores nationwide last month. From Spiced Kebab to The Chunk (hailed as tasting exactly like chicken), you are bound to fool any meat eater into thinking this is real meat.
2. No Bull Burger
Similarly, Iceland’s ‘No Bull Burger’ has been causing quite the storm in the vegan community. It seems as though most either love it or hate it, as some find the burger far too realistically meaty for their liking. It seems however that the majority opinion is that this burger is a great alternative to the typical bean-burger that can become quite boring after a while.
3. M&S hazelnut chocolate bar
M&S’s new ‘accidentally vegan’ Gianduja Bar has been widely compared to the tasty vegan-favourite VEGO bar, which is a milk chocolate bar filled with hazelnuts. If you love Nutella, then you are guaranteed to love this nutty-chocolate bar which you would find hard to believe is dairy-free.
4. Sainsbury’s new vegan lunch options
Sainsbury’s has recently come under fire for firstly breaking their pledge to support chicken welfare, and secondly by introducing “touch-free” plastic wrapping on raw meat. However, they have released a fantastic new range of grab-and-go lunch options which make life a lot easier for plant-based eaters. New options include a Super Greens sandwich full of avocado and edamame, a Mediterranean Vegetable sandwich, and this Spicy Pulled Jackfruit wrap with Asian BBQ sauce.
5. Swedish Glace soy dairy-free ice cream
New additions to the vegan ice-cream world are always exciting, and Swedish Glace is a firm favourite for me as their ice cream is not only completely delicious but also is completely affordable for a tight student budget. Whilst the classic vanilla flavour is looking like a fantastic dupe of a Magnum, Swedish Glace are also releasing new exciting new flavours including a Coconut & Passion Fruit Tub, Caramel Toffee cones, and Vanilla& Strawberry Swirl Cones.
