Posted by 11 months ago | Permalink | Comments (5)

It’s only November, but already, shop and supermarket shelves are overflowing with vegan Christmas treats, from Advent calendars to festive sandwiches. Here are a few of our new favourites:

  • Hotel Chocolat: Vegan Christmas Hotel ChocolatThere are so many new Christmas chocolates this year from Hotel Chocolat, and vegan options are clearly labelled. How great would it be to find a luxurious dark-chocolate wreath under your tree? Or perhaps some adorable chilli-chocolate penguins?
  • Starbucks Christmas Veggie Feast Flatbread: Starbucks Veggie Flatbread Vegan ChristmasChristmas sandwiches are such a popular tradition, and this year, Starbucks has introduced a vegan option at its UK shops. The Christmas Veggie Feast Flatbread is packed with chestnut purée, apricots, stuffing, butternut squash and mushrooms. Yum!
  • Tesco Nut Roast: Vegan Christmas Tesco RoastLook for Tesco’s Meat Free Festive Nut Roast, which has been spotted in a few shops already, to roll out in shops everywhere soon. The maple-glazed carrot and pecan roast with a cranberry and port sauce could be the perfect main dish for a Crimbo feast. Check out more Christmas roasts here.
  • Costa Crimbo Crumble:Vegan Christmas Costa Crumble For a snack on the run, check out Costa’s Crimbo Crumble. This mincemeat crumble has a biscuit base and is the perfect festive treat to go alongside a soya latte. Be sure to let Costa know you appreciate its vegan option by sharing a tweet for its Christmas hashtag campaign: #MerryChristmasToMe.
  • Vegan Advent Calendars: Vegan Christmas Tesco Advent ChocolateChristmas just wouldn’t be the same without an Advent calendar countdown. This year, we’ve spotted vegan chocolate calendars at Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Asda Stores Limited, Holland & Barrett, Hotel Chocolat and local health-food shops. Have you picked one up yet?
  • Waitrose Shortcrust Mince Pies:Vegan Christmas Waitrose Mince Pies Mince pies are definitely a Christmas essential, and Waitrose’s Essential Shortcrust Mince Pies are free from butter and eggs but full of flavour. Waitrose shoppers rated them 4.5 out of five stars, and they’re a bargain at only £1 for a pack of six.
  • Co-operative Rich Fruit Christmas Pudding:Co-operative Vegan Christmas PuddingThis Christmas pudding from the Co-operative is clearly marked as vegan. It’s full of fruits and booze, just like a good Christmas pudding should be. And it’s a real bargain too!

    There is no mention of the Waitrose pie as vegan on their website. I called in and the advisor confirmed it was not labeled. Are you sure this is vegan? There is also a cider Christmas pudding at Waitrose which is labeled. Thanks.
