I won’t even pretend that ‘Friday Favs’ will be a regularly scheduled post, however, with all the information I post on Instagram it’s very easy to miss out on some of my finds. So when I have a few products of interest (not just food related) I will create a little post here to view at your leisure. Select ‘View more’ to proceed to external related links.
Alpro Coconut Ice Cream
I brought the coconut flavour ice cream because....some greedy begger had taken all the other flavours. However, the level of indecisiveness shown when I have too much food choice this may have been a good thing!
Delhi Dal Makhani
You guys know I love to cook but sometimes I look at the cooker with such disgust that I just walk out the house into the embrace of a warm onion vinegar covered hug sized of portion of fat chip shop chips. However, it's really not something I can do all the time so I like to have a back up plan when I have the urge to not want to cook. I've seen & ate them pre-vegan but didn't really pay them much attention. Then I saw it was on offer in Tesco's for £1 combined with that lovely VEGAN label I just had to have it! I will let you know if it's a yay or nay soon.
Alpro Plain with Almond
I've not tried this yet but I like the coconut version so fingers crossed. I picked this up in Sainsburys on offer for £1. However, big however I like to cook with yoghurt and find these on the wrong side of sweet for savoury dishes. I would love a plain inexpensive yoghurt to make yoghurt dips and sauces. Do you guys know of any suitable products?
Oreo Mint & Strawberry Cheesecake
I tried the mint & almost cried tears of joy as I sat in a random Tesco carpark at the thought of my beloved Viscount mint cream filled biscuits that I had to give up upon going vegan. Whilst not the same this filled the minty biscuit void in my life. I then got home on the same day and with encouragement from some of my favourite vegans I gallantly attempted to eat just a few biscuits....fast forward to me looking down the silver side of the packet wondering how I had reached the end. Yes I love the strawberry too. A lot of people make cheesecakes & filled doughnuts with the original oreo's....CAN YOU IMAGINE THE DELIGHTS people will now be making with these. They're a limited edition and whilst supplies are sketchy you can find them in all the main supermarkets currently on offer. Please note that the peanut butter flavour is not vegan due to containing Whey. Also please check to ensure your pack is vegan as there are a great number of imported special flavours that are not vegan friendly.
Alpro Vanilla Ice Cream
Not yet tried but definitely on my radar....for research purposes of course!
Alpro Hazelnut Chocolate Ice Cream
I've heard mixed reviews about this flavour, however, I think it's only right that i eventually get round to trying this so I can make a fair and balance taste test/review.
I shall not talk about the cross country dash fiasco when Sainsbury’s brought out their new vegan cheese range on the 29th September. However, if I do decide to acquire some I will gladly share my findings with you. For those of you that have tried it do let me know what you think! Yay, So So or pass?
