It’s officially World Vegan Month all month long and we are excited to shout out about some amazing new brands and products. The boom in demand for animal-free products continues and here are a few of our favourite items that are making waves. From meat-free takeaways to chocolate brownies and plant-based pet food, there is something to tick every box.
All of these products are from brands and businesses we love, and some of these are sponsored. We vetted all of these businesses and products ourselves, so you are in good hands.
HU Chocolate - £3.50 per bar
HU Chocolate was founded by Jordan, Jessica and Jason after they tried and tested so many chocolate bars that left them wanting more. They realised the need to "get back to human" that is, to focus on simple, healthier ingredients in their chocolate to replace weird industrial ones. Their human-centric range of vegan, gluten-free, un-processed chocolate is the result and it's delicious. It's just landed in the UK and so far comes in Simple Dark, Salted, Cashew Butter & Vanilla, Almond Butter & Crispy Quinoa, and Hazlenut Butter Stuffed bars - all made from just organic cocoa mass, organic unrefined coconut sugar and organic cocoa butter (that's it!).
Quorn Takeaway Range - From £2
Quorn began in the 1960s, with one man’s vision to protect the planet fast forward to 2021 and the mainstream vegetarian and vegan brand has just launched their first fakeaway range that you can easily prepare in the comfort of your own kitchen. The range features delicious treats that are perfect for quiet winter evenings at home. Quorn’s new range includes Quorn Crunchy Fillet Burger - a plant-based chicken fillet covered in fennel and smoked paprika seasoned coating. There are also the Buffalo Wings and Crunchy Strips to "enable families to have a fakeaway feast that is healthier for you and the planet."
H!p Oat M!lk Chocolate - From £3.00
Inspired by his great-great-great Grandfather, John Cadbury, H!P launched in early 2021, with the aim of reinventing chocolate by replacing dairy with plant-based creamy oat milk. H!P chocolate was born out of a desire to eat good quality, creamy vegan chocolate. Hence, at H!P we use the best quality single-origin Colombian cacao and combine this with creamy gluten-free oat milk. Flavours include creamy and smooth original, salty pretzel, salted caramel, cookies no cream and the seasonal special gingerbread.
