Find out who is a vegan icon, and who should probably get eaten by a python.
This week’s vegan winners and losers – week beginning 26/11/18
Dirty Sanchez star Matt Pritchard is reportedly hosting a brand new vegan cookery show on the BBC. Dirty Vegan will air on BBC One Wales in January.
There has been sightings of mini Vego bars in selected Co Op stores! If you come across this, be sure to give it a try as it is the best chocolate ever!!! You can also buy it from The Vegan Kind Supermarket online.
It has been very kindly brought to my attention that the Home Bargains instagram has been running some vegan shopping guides on their story. This is good news, because it’s a nice cheap and cheerful place to do a little bit of Christmas shopping!
Bijou B&B in Somerset
Being vegan herself, Chantal Denny decided to make her new bed and breakfast business a vegan and eco-friendly venture too! From duvets made from recycled plastic to eco-friendly paint on the walls, Bijou B&B is a great choice for vegans and anyone who loves the planet. And, of course, the breakfast is entirely vegan too – and apparently it’s massive! Love this, and will definitely stay there if I’m ever in the area. Well done, Chantal.
American faux meat brand Gardein is soon to arrive in the UK! It will be available to buy in Sainsbury’s as of January in the new year, and I can’t wait to try their products.
Yet another vegan brand has been snapped up by Sainsbury’s, who are clearly keen to keep a tight hold on that herbivorous coin. Sophie’s Kitchen create entirely plant-based sea food that imitates classic dishes such as crab cakes, scallops, salmon, tuna, and more! Sophie’s Kitchen products will be available in Sainsbury’s from January.
With their recent “banned”advert spreading awareness about palm oil and habitat destruction, Iceland seemed to be moving in the right direction. However, they clearly don’t care about any animals other than the orangutang because they have massively reduced their vegan section in order to fit in more meat-and-dairy-fuelled Christmas products. It’s hugely disappointing.
