‘The only egg, dairy and nut free cake on the market. Great taste, looks pretty – what more could you want! A life saver!'

Tesco Free From Maple Bacon Tortilla Curls

Gaia Pulses – Lentil and Quinoa Stew

Gosh! Food Veggie Cocktail Sausages

'Tastes like stuffing mix (a good thing!). Good nutritious content with the chickpeas, lentils and beans and 14 allergens free. Woo! Well-detailed herbs and spices. Glad to see focus on more real ingredients, decent price.'

Liberate Crumpets

'Great freefrom product. Good texture, taste. Slightly doughy. Very unusual to see a GF and vegan crumpet. So positive. Not too salty. Tasty. Moist. 14 free is good.'

Planet Kuku Cauliflower Kuku

'Tasty, nice frittata-style ‘cake’. Good ingredients, nutritious. Really tasty and well-held together. Multiple cooking options. Lovely flavour. Unusual idea and great vegan alternative. Lovely warm spiced flavours. Really enjoyed this. Shame lots of allergens but still delicious. Good spicing.'

'Cute novelty crisps. Taste sensation. Beautiful blend of herbs and spices. Lovely. Great texture and flavour. Reasonably priced and taste nice.'


Growers Garden Broccoli Crisps with Cheese

Growers Garden Broccoli Crisps with Sour Cream and Chives

'Good sour kick. Very tasty and crunchy. Healthier than regular crisps. So lovely! But expensive.'

Lidl Without Meat Vegan Burger Patties

'Actually has a nice char-grilled texture and flavour – a good vegan alternative to meat. Better than most similar alternatives. I like that it’s mushrom. Contains soya & wheat. Looks & smells like meat. Good protein level.'

Tesco Free From 6 Month Matured Christmas Pudding

'Great freefrom credentials. Absolutely delicious - a rich and fruity flavour with a great blend of spices. Needs work developing. Not bready enough, and falls apart.'

Venice Bakery Large FreeFrom and Vegan Cauliflower Pizza Base

'Love this. Great crispy, chewy base, versatile, vegan and 14 free. Great taste – crisp and well held together base. Surprisingly good. Low salt and sugar. Impressed with the delicate cauliflower flavour – preferred without toppings!'
