Boxes of Chocolates, Biscuits and more!

Aug 16 - transferred to here and will be updated on our new blog from now on.
Need a box of vegan chocolates, biscuits, fruits or turkish delights for a pressie? Here is a selection of what is available in the UK. Some will be easily available from supermarkets, others from independent health food shops and good food halls.

THE PRODUCTS LOOK TO BE VEGAN FROM ME READING THE INGREDIENTS. MOST PRODUCTS DO NOT HAVE SUITABLE FOR VEGANS ON THEM. PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH IF YOU ARE CONCERNED THAT I HAVE GOT IT WRONG. PLEASE NOTE ALSO, THAT INGREDIENTS DO CHANGE AND CHOCOLATE IS MADE ON THE SAME LINES AS DAIRY SO THERE IS A 'MAY CONTAIN DAIRY' ALLERGY WARNING ON MOST OF THESE. SO SUITABLE FOR VEGANS, BUT NOT ALLERGY SUFFERERS. PEOPLE SEND SUGGESTIONS IN AND I CAN'T ALWAYS CHECK THEM SO THESE GET ADDED ON TRUST WITHOUT SEEING.

We are on facebook if you wish to follow and get involved in different discussions, giveaways and we also share lots of other peoples recipe links!
We have a page and a chat room. Please feel free to join us.

BOXED TURKISH DELIGHT
Here is a selection of boxed turkish delights which also make great presents. This selection I found in a food hall, health food shops usually have a good range. Never really looked what the supermarkets have as I buy a box for 89p from home bargains. The ones shown below though are extra special flavoured ones. Most turkish delights appear to be suitable for vegans. Watch out for cochineal/carmine/E120 as a colouring though as this is not vegan.











Also worth note for pressie ideas
Whittard's hot chocolate drink (add 'milk' type) would also make a nice gift. The hot chocolates don't say on them if they are vegan, but they do on the website. I want to try rocky road flavour!

Also worth noting for yourself!
Mornflake chocolate pillows cereal is really yummy eaten as is. Aldi and other supermarkets also do chocolate pillows, don't remember which ones are vegan, but do check. The middle is like ferrero rocher! Ideal for munching when watching a film, like you might munch popcorn!
