9 Egg-citing Vegan Easter Eggs for 2019

Are you ready to eat way too much vegan chocolate this Easter? You’re in luck because 2019 is already looking like one of the best years for vegan Easter eggs yet. We’ve included lots of options sold in UK supermarkets, with something for every budget.

1. Buttermilk Choc Honeycomb/Choc Orange Easter Eggs

Despite the name, Buttermilk have two delicious, vegan-friendly eggs on sale at Sainsbury’s. Choose from Choc Honeycomb or Choc Orange.

2. Tesco Finest Salted Caramel Easter Egg

A caramel flavour egg that comes with raspberry and caramel fondant truffles, yum. For a ‘luxury’ option, it’s not too expensive at £6.50 and is reduced to £5 until 2nd April! There’s also a dark chocolate version with orange and raspberry truffles.

3. ASDA Extra Special Free From Easter Egg Selection

Can’t decide what you want this year? For £4.50 you can have THREE vegan Easter eggs: chocolate with raspberry pieces, white chocolate with vanilla, and dark chocolate with cocoa nibs. Perfect for families!

4. Sainsbury’s Free From Strawberry and White Chocolate Egg

Have you been desperate for a pink vegan Easter egg? If so, you’re in luck with this strawberry and white chocolate treat from Sainsbury’s. It’s £3.50 and they also have (less exciting) chocolate and white chocolate versions.

5. Hotel Chocolat Soft Boiled Easter Egg

How crazy is this ‘Soft-Boiled Egg’ from Hotel Chocolat?! It’s pricey at £10 but definitely a fun novelty. It’s great to see that there’s a dedicated section for vegan Easter eggs on the Hotel Chocolat website.

6. Buttermilk Caramelised Cacao Nib

Another delicious-looking vegan option from Buttermilk — this one is £12 at Waitrose.

7. Aldi Dark Chocolate Egg with Hazelnut Truffles

Aldi have stepped up their game this year with an Organic Dark Chocolate Egg & Hazelnut truffles. This one is perfect for Ferrero Rocher fans.

8. Moo Free Chocolate Orange Egg

9. Kinnerton Just Chocolate Dark Chocolate Egg & Large Bar

Even Iceland are offering a vegan Easter egg this year, hooray. This one’s £6 for 195g.

Which Easter egg are you planning to treat yourself to this year? Have you spotted any other cool vegan products this Easter? We’re excited to try the new avocado jelly sweets from Waitrose!

Top Vegan Finds at Iceland (Cheap & Delicious Vegan Food)

Ever walked past your local Iceland and thought, ‘Nah, there won’t be anything vegan in there…’? You’re wrong! Iceland is actually full of excellent vegan options and we’re here to share some of our favourites. Lots of these products aren’t available in other supermarkets so it’s well worth popping in to stock up.

No Cheese Pizzas

Vegan pizza that doesn’t cost a fortune!! Choose from the No Cheese Italian Garden Pizza and the No Cheese Houmous Pizza. We’ve heard that these are tasty but a little watery — but at just £2 each they’re definitely worth a try.

Cadbury Bournville Orange Dark Chocolate

This Bournville Orange Dark Chocolate is delicious and only costs a pound! We’d definitely recommend stocking up if you’re a fan as we’ve only ever spotted this at Iceland.

No Bull Vegan Meat Range

The ‘No Bull’ range of products is completely vegan and has a dedicated fridge in most stores, as well as being available online.

Here’s what you can choose from:

  • No Bull Jalapeño Burgers
  • No Chick Crispy Fillets
  • No Chick Chunks
  • No Bull Meatballs
  • No Bull Mince
  • No Bull Sausages
  • No Chick & No Porkies Paella
  • No Bull Chilli and Rice
  • Asian Burgers
  • Tofu Vegetable Burgers
  • Green Vegetable Balls

Priced between £1 and £3.50 this is way more affordable than most meat alternatives in other supermarkets.

Linda McCartney Vegetarian Sausages

These vegan sausages are a favourite of vegans everywhere, and they’re usually on offer for £1 at Iceland, so it’s definitely the best place to get them.

Zesty Bean Quinoa Steam Bags

These Zesty Bean Quinoa Steam Bags are a really easy lunch/side dish option and they’re nice and healthy! Iceland is actually much better for healthy options than you might think – you can also buy Frozen Cauliflower Rice Steam Bags.

Slimming World Free Food Vegetable Dhal and Chana Saag

The Vegetable Dhal and Chana Saag curries from Slimming World are accidentally vegan and have great reviews. Yum. A few of the Slimming World soups are also vegan-friendly.

Iceland Frozen for Freshness Mushroom Mix

This mushroom mix contains Oyster Mushroom, Button Mushrooms, Shiitake Mushrooms, Nameko Mushrooms, and Porcini Mushroom. We haven’t seen anything similar in other supermarkets and really like the look of this.

Is Iceland Good for Vegans?

Iceland is billed as the UK’s cheapest online supermarket and it has some really great vegan options that you can’t get anywhere else.

However, while you can find basics like soy milk, Iceland is lacking products like vegan cheese, yoghurt, mayonnaise, cake, etc — so it might not be the best place for your big shop.

We’d say it’s worth shopping at Iceland for specific products like the ones above. Since you only have to spend £35 to get free delivery, it’s feasible to do an online shop here every once in a while… even if you just buy 35 bars of Orange Bournville.

Where to Buy Vegan Fish and Seafood in the UK

Just gone vegan and wishing you could have fish and chips for tea? Craving a fish finger sandwich? Or looking for alternatives to shrimp and salmon? We’ve got you covered! Vegan fish might not be as common as vegan meat alternatives, but there are still plenty of options out there.

Quorn Vegan Fishless Fingers

These Fishless Fingers from Quorn have been out for a while now, and they’re a firm favourite with many vegans. The texture is flaky, the fish flavour is good but not too strong, and the breadcrumbs are delicious.

Quorn Battered and Breaded Fishless Fillets (Coming March 2019)

Available from March 2019, two new vegan fish products from Quorn. Choose from fillets with a salt and vinegar crispy batter or the lemon and pepper breadcrumb version. If these are good, they’ll be a game changer!

These will retail at £2.99 each.

Sophie’s Kitchen Vegan Shrimp

New at Sainsbury’s is this vegan shrimp from Sophie’s Kitchen – and it certainly looks realistic. If you’ve tried it, let us know what you thought below, or leave a review on our database.

Sophie’s Kitchen Vegan Smoked Salmon

This vegan smoked salmon is the second Sophie’s Kitchen product available at Sainsbury’s. Again, let us know what you think if you’ve tried it!

Gardein Golden Fishless Filets

A popular brand in the US, you can grab these Gardein Golden Fishless Filets at Sainsbury’s, and we’ve heard positive reviews so far.

Waitrose Vegan Fish’less’ cakes and Fish’less’ Fingers

Waitrose now sell both vegan fish fingers and vegan fish cakes, and we’ve heard good things about both. A nice option to have if you’re not keen on Quorn.

Tesco Meat Free Fishless Fishcakes

We reviewed these Tesco Fishless Fishcakes when they were first released. The verdict? They’re good, but the taste is more potato than fish. Good for anyone who likes a very mild flavour.

VBites Fish Style Steaks

The VBites Fish Style steaks are available at Ocado, plus some branches of Holland and Barrett. VBites also make fish fingers, fish cakes, scampi style bites, and smoked salmon slices – take a look at the ‘fish-free’ section of their site.

Linda McCartney Vegetarian Scampi Bites

These Linda McCartney Scampi bites are available at Waitrose and we’ve heard they’re great with a little added salt and vingerar.

Linda McCartney Vegetarian Fish Goujons

Another new option at Sainsbury’s – let us know if you try them!

The vegan fish industry might still be growing, but there’s plenty out there to keep you going for now. Did we miss your favourite vegan fish or seafood alternative?? Or is there a vegan fish product you’re desperate for someone to make? Let us know below or on Twitter.

Where to Get Vegan Mayo in the UK

Want to enjoy vegan mayo on your sandwiches, salads, and more? You’re in luck – most major UK supermarkets now sell at least one brand of vegan mayo, so you’ll be spoilt for choice! Keep scrolling to get a good look at the options.

Tesco Free From Mayo-Maize

Where is it sold? Tesco

What’s it like? We really like this – it’s tasty and close to the real thing. The only issue is that it can be hard to squeeze out once the bottle isn’t full… we’ve seen a few complaints on social media about this!

Mr Organic Egg Free and Organic Mayo

Where is it sold? Waitrose, Ocado, Holland & Barrett

What’s it like? This product should appeal to anyone who wants to stick to organic products. We’ve read mixed reviews online, so you’ll have to try it to see what you think.

Sacla Free From Mayonnaise

Where is it sold? Sainsbury’s, Ocado

What’s it like? It’s great to see a big brand like this offering a vegan trademarked product. It’s got great reviews for being thick and creamy, and the jar is handy if you don’t want to deal with a squeezy bottle.

Chippa May-o

Where is it sold? Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Asda

What’s it like? This has two five star reviews on our product database, and the taste has been likened to salad cream. Yum!

Granovita Mayola

Where is it sold? Holland & Barrett, Ocado

What’s it like? This is our personal favourite, although it’s sadly no longer available at Tesco. It tastes very realistic and comes in a squeezy bottle that’s easy to use, even when you’re running out. Some people think it tastes too much like salad cream, so it’s definitely a matter or taste!

Sriracha Mayo Sauce

Where is it sold? Tesco, Asda (usually in the World Foods aisle)

What’s it like? If you love sriracha or just want an extra kick with your mayo, this is ideal! If you don’t like hot flavours, give this a miss.

As you can see, it’s not hard to find tons of delicious vegan mayo in the UK! Which brand is your favourite? Or do you prefer to make your own? Let us know in the comments.

Where to Get Vegan Pizza in the UK

“But what about pizza?!” This is one of the most common questions you might hear after telling someone that you’re vegan. Luckily, the number of vegan pizza options available is increasing all the time, so you won’t have to go without – whether you’re cooking at home, eating out, or ordering a takeaway.

We’ve split this post into three sections: supermarket, takeaway, and high street restaurant, so keep scrolling to find exactly what you’re looking for. Bon appetit!

Where to Buy Vegan Birthday Cakes and Treats in the UK

Vegan birthday cake. It’s still one of the hardest things to shop for without going to a specialist store, and while items like vegan cheese and pizza are becoming more widespread, none of the supermarkets have released a dedicated vegan cake yet.

*** Update January 2019: There are now several great vegan cakes available in supermarkets! Scroll all the way down to check them out. ***

However, that doesn’t mean you don’t have options. There are lots of vegan treats which can easily be used in place of a cake, and we’re sharing some of our favourites below. We’ll be keeping this article updated, so be sure to let us know if you spot any new releases.

What to Have on Toast When You’re Vegan (Best Vegan Toast Toppings)

Ahh, the ultimate quick and easy comfort food – who doesn’t love something on toast? And being vegan doesn’t mean you don’t still have loads of yummy choices. 

Buttery Spread

Want something quick and easy? Try one of the lovely butter substitutes – Flora Dairy Free is popular for its realistic ‘buttery’ flavor, and Vitalite is a great budget option. 

For something a little fancier, try Pure Olive Spread or Flora Freedom with Avocado Oil and  Lime.

Marmite

Marmite – love it or hate it – is quick, easy and delicious – and gives you a good dose of B vitamins, too. 

If you’re feeling more adventurous, how about combining with a non-dairy soft cheese, such as Violife Creamy? You could even top the whole thing with jam. Sounds weird?  Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it! 

Jam or Marmalade

Most jams and marmalades are vegan, so plenty of choice there. Combine with peanut butter if you like!

Nut Butters

Peanut butter isn’t the only option out there! Experiment with almond, cashew, and more. WowButter is another option that’s vegan-friendly and 100% peanut-free, making it popular for school packed lunches.

Biscuit Spread

Another delicious sweet option is biscuit spread – something like Lotus Biscoff – available in Crunchy and Smooth. 

Beans

Have a little more time? Good old-fashioned baked beans are great, but don’t ignore more exotic varieties like spicy beans or taco beans which are available in most supermarkets. 

Tomatoes

Got a tin of chopped tomatoes in the cupboard? Warm them up and add salt and a few drops of fiery Tabasco or Sriracha sauce for a quick spicy hit. 

Tinned Spaghetti

And on the subject of tins, how about some tinned spaghetti?  We all know how much fun hoops and letters are, no matter how old we are. 

Avocado

Avocado – everyone’s favourite superfood – is great chopped and smashed on toast. Either eat it as it is or pop under the grill for a few minutes. For extra flavour, chop in some tomato and top with chilli, salt and pepper. 

  

Mushrooms

Chop up some mushrooms and cook for a few minutes in water or oil, with garlic, salt and pepper added.  Pile on top of your toast for a warm and satisfying snack.

Houmous

Houmous tastes amazing on toast and can make a nice alternative to cheese in toasted sandwiches, since it melts slightly when warm.

What’s your favourite vegan toast topping?
