Feel Free donuts

Asda Free From Mature Cheddar Alternative

Really great melted. Not particularly strong taste but very pleasant and it melts well with no unpleasant smells! Great freefrom ingredient.’ ‘So useful – especially if kids are around. Melted in or on a dish no child would even notice that it was different.'


Feel Free donuts

Bute Island Dairy Free Grated Mild Cheddar Style

‘Lovely texture – melts really well - so useful for toppings, pizzas - even cheese on toast! Excellent product.'


Feel Free donuts

Tesco Lactose Free Mascarpone

‘Lovely flavour. Very smooth texture. Would work beautifully in cheesecake - and equally well in pasta.'


Feel Free donuts

Vitalite Dairy Free Spread

‘Good buttery flavour for a dairy free spread. Great price point.’ 'Spreads well – and no aftertaste. Good that it is vitamin enriched.'


Tyne Chease Smoked Cashew Chease

'Aroma lovely – smells like chorizo! Texture nice and soft and spreadable.  Pretty strong flavoured but a great artisan vegan cheese – if an expensive one!'

Nush Almond Milk Yoghurt Banoffee

'Great texture and lovely flavour – actually does tastes like banoffee! Nice to have coconut sugar  instead of refined.  Great for getting live cultures into children.


Ooomega 100% plant based Flax drink Original

'Looks and tastes like a Bailey’s with profile of low sugar.' 'Good on cereals. Certainly fills a gap for vegans without soya overloading. Not mad on the taste, but since it is fortified it is nutritionally beneficial.'

Tesco Free From Jalapeno & Chilli Cheddar – coconut oil alternative

'This tastes really good – full flavoured and not too spicy. Pretty much like the real thing.'

The Progressive Food Company Individual Long Life Soya Milk Portions

'Really good concept and great for putting in handbags or coffee shops. Looks like regular milk and does not split in hot drinks – excellent – and not too sweet.'
