Vegan Magnum now exists & Free From Spotted In Shops!

freaks of nature dairy free blueberry yoghurt

So I thought it about time I do a Free From version of Spotted In Shops (with a side dose of Vegan Snacks News), featuring some of the latest Gluten/Dairy/Egg Free & Vegan products, since the demand for these foods is ever-growing. Without further ado, let's take a look at what's come out in recent months...

First up - Freaks of Nature, makers of Dairy Free desserts, have launched into the Dairy Free Yoghurt market with Blueberry and Strawberry flavours. These are made with Cashew nuts and are currently available from Sainsbury's for £1.50 a pot.

Magnum Vegan Almond

It's not available in the UK yet (Sweden and Finland will get them in September), but a Vegan Magnum now exists in both Classic and Almond varieties! No doubt these will be on sale here soon if they're popular - I personally reckon they'll be on shelves by next year.

the coconut collaborative passionfruit panna cotta

The Coconut Collaborative are still going strong with their Dairy Free desserts, and have added a Mango and Passionfruit Panna Cotta to their range, made from coconut milk. Available at Sainsbury's.

the groovy food company creamed coconut

The Groovy Food Company recently launched creamed coconut in jars, perfect for making your own coconut milk with and using in curries...

...and apparently it's a "delicious plant based alternative" to a diary! (see above). I'm surprised such a hilarious typo managed to get through their system, but there it is! Available at Tesco.

rhythm coconut kefir pink ginger

Rhythm, known for their coconut kefir drinks now make Kefir with Pink Ginger! Available at Sainsbury's.

better than rice konjac

Cauli Rice, the low carb alternative to rice is becoming popular in supermarkets now, but hot on its heels is this new "Better Than Rice" made from Konjac fibre. It's gluten free, low calorie, vegan, fat free and high fibre. Available from Tesco.

Naturli plant based mince

Plant-based alternatives to meat are becoming ever more popular (with Beyond Meat making its debut with a "bleeding" burger in Tesco), and now you can get Plant Based Soya mince that looks like regular minced beef in Sainsbury's. This isn't revolutionary since Veggie mince has been available for a while, but it's the first of its kind to mimic the look of "fresh" minced meat.

the saucy affair raw sauce beetroot cahoot

Sainsburys are now selling "The Saucy Affair" (ooh-er missus!) raw sauces, made with over 70% fruit and veg. This "Beetroot Cahoot" variety looks very vibrant!

kombucha cola

Made by Lo Bros, Sainsbury's are also selling this Organic Kombucha Cola with "living bio cultures". Who knew healthy cola existed?

rude health organic hazelnut and cacao drink

Rude Health have expanded their dairy free mylk range with Organic Hazelnut and Cacao Drink (I wonder if it tastes like Nutella?)...

rude health organic peanut drink

Plus Organic Peanut Drink...

rude health peanut drink

And Organic Tiger Nut Drink. Tiger Nuts aren't actually a nut but a small tuber, which is also a superfood, so if you are allergic to nuts you'll be safe drinking this - hurrah! Spotted in Sainsbury's and also available at Waitrose.

lucy bee organic coconut milk

Lucy Bee, makers of a variety of coconut products have branched out into Coconut Milk, that is organic, unsweetened and uses only a touch of xanthan gum as a thickener. It promises to be one of the most natural coconut milks around. Available at Asda.

willies cacao 100% pistachio and date

Last but not least, Willie's Cacao have launched a new bar in their No Added Sugar 100% Cacao range, containing Pistachios and Dates. I'd be very interested in trying this one - I bet the dates give the 100% chocolate some much needed sweetness!

Well, that's all for this first edition of Free From Spotted In Shops - it's certainly made a change featuring only Free From products! If you'd like to see more of these posts do let me know in the comments, and if you spot any new Free From foods please give me a heads up either on the Blog or my Twitter & Instagram accounts!

  1. Wow what a lot of new finds. Hadn't seen a few of these. The schar tempties are GF forero Rocha style chocs! That fake fresh mince is a bit creepy though.
