3 Delicious Vegan Products Coming to a Supermarket Near You

Posted by 1 year ago | Permalink | Comments (17)

Barely a week goes by without some new vegan products emerging for us to get ridiculously overexcited about.

And it’s extra exciting when those same products are stocked in some of the UK’s biggest supermarket chains, making yummy vegan food even more accessible to people all over the country.

Here are three of the supermarket finds that have us licking our lips this summer:Tesco Vegan Ice Cream Cones

Tesco Free-From Strawberry and Vanilla Cones:

These are basically the taste of your childhood but are made from a recipe that matches your new, grown-up vegan ethics. Even non-vegans have been gushing about how tasty they are.

Other vegan favourites from Tesco’s free-from range include some darn fine vegan cream cheese, crème caramel and chocolate puddings.

Violife from company

Violife Vegan Cheese Slices at ASDA:

We’ve been fans of these ultra-convenient dairy-free cheese slices for ages. They make it so easy to enjoy a good old-fashioned cheese sandwich without supporting cruelty to any animals.

Fry's Nuggets1

Fry’s Faux Meats at Morrisons:

Just in time for barbecue season, a selection of Fry’s faux-meat products is arriving in the freezers of Morrisons. Be warned – some of their “meats” taste so convincing that you’ll be double-checking the packaging to make sure they really are vegan!

*****

It’s definitely a sign of the times that pretty much every major supermarket across the UK now knows that they need to cater to ethical eaters who are clued up on where their food comes from and refuse to support the exploitation of animals.

If your local branch doesn’t stock any of these products, be sure to ask a staff member whether they’ll be coming soon – customer demand will help make sure these products are rolled out across the country.

Which store do you reckon has the best vegan haul? Let us know your shopping tips in the comments below!

      I totally agree. I have a large Tesco near me and find loads of vegan products.

      Hi Yashoda,

      Check out PETA US’ website for tonnes of ideas about vegan living in the United States: http://www.peta.org/living/

    PETA should acredit vegan products. They should be available for companies to submit products for supply chain security regarding cruelty free status and carry the PETA accreditation.

    I shop at Vons Market and they are joining in on the Vegan products. They are most delicious and I stock my freezer with these vegan meat choices. I do hope more markets get in the selling and advertising these items. More people must try these items.

    Really, nice post. Thanks for giving the informative information. For know more about more vegan products: http://www.vegalyfe.com/

    Surely buying all these vegan products from places like tesco is funding animal cruelty and exploitation, giving such large and powerful corporations more money to murder animals defeats the purpose…

    • Mr Blobby commented on May 22, 2015 at 3:13 pm

      Not really. These supermarkets don’t just buy as many animal products as possible and hope to sell them, they clinically supply what is in demand. If they waste their profits from non-animal products by buying excessive animal products which don’t sell as demand is still the same, then they are wasting money. Just won’t happen.

      In fact, it’s more likely that if demand for these non-animal products rises as they are introduced throughout supermarkets, then animal product demand will fall as more people move to non-animal choices, and as a result supermarkets will change their stock to reflect that.

    Be aware to check labels regardless on ‘free from’ foods. I often buy these as I have coeliacs disease and am lactose intolerant (although avoid animal products anyway). I recently got Asda gluten, milk and egg free biscuits only to find they had pork gelatine in them. Also many of these products are not particularly healthy as are high in salt, fat and sugar and made with cheap fillers, such as palm oil, which are not particularly ethically sound. You can get quality alternatives from other retailers such as Ethical Superstore or Real Foods which also operate with a far more conscientious approach than these big retailers. You can influence the big retailers by choice in product at their stores, but exert far more influence by removing support for them altogether in favour of something better.

    I’m very much a supporter of introducing vegan and vegetarian options in the big supermarkets. In fact, I think promoting vegetarian/vegan products by creating dedicated sections and including this info on the packaging is a great way of braking down the barriers and fight prejudice. It works in the same principal as the reason why it is now illegal to display tobacco products in stores or in adverts. Vegetarians and vegans are no longer being coined ‘green freaks’ or ‘tree huggers’; veggie lifestyle is fast becoming trendy, cool and a status of self-awareness. Veggie dedicated isles are being brought to the front of many supermarkets and vegetarian/vegan product info is no longer a novelty but a point of sale and as useful as a breakdown of fat, salt and sugar. Plus, the convinience, availability and plenty of choice really helps those not fully convinced to make up their mind or at least try and go veg. Thumbs up from me! 🙂

    I love Fry’s products I have bought some faux nuggets from Morrison’s but if they got more coming yippie do that’s great I love being vegan.

  • Required commented on August 9, 2016 at 12:13 pm

    Morrisons seem to take the view that if you’re vegan or vegetarian they can just stop stocking meat alternative products on a whim. I loved their own brand meat free burgers and sausages but they only stocked them for a few weeks before they disappeared back into the ether again. They seem obsessed with Quorn, which a lot of people can’t tolerate, and Linda McCartney’s middle-class floor-sweepings, but otherwise resort to ‘burgers’ made of raw broccoli and lumps of raw nut. Can’t imagine them being so cavalier with real meat. Imagine if they just stopped stocking chicken or beef. If you’re vegetarian or vegan they don’t really want your custom. End of.
