Vegan again

Enough of this complaining about what isn’t vegan. Today I am celebrating the return of one of my favourite snacks that was vegan, went non-vegan for a while and has returned as vegan once more.

Check it out!I was stumbling to the Underground, drunk from the lucha libre in Bethnal Green, when I saw a late night Sainsbury’s open for business just shy of midnight. Of course I had consumed more beer than medically advisable, so I was in the mood for something on which to munch.

I spotted the Sainsbury’s own brand Bacon Crispies and it got me thinking of all the times I used to drunkenly eat them after a night out. Just as I was starting to get teary eyed from the reminiscing, I noted the packet had  the words ‘improved recipe’ emblazoned on the front.

I staggered toward the shelves, snatched up a packed, flipped it over and let out a beer-fuelled yelp of joy.

The Sainsbury’s vegan product identification has been returned to this beloved snack following many months (years?) as unsuitable for plant eaters.

I was happy in the haze of my drunken hour as I took this photo in a nearby shop doorway, however heaven knows I’m miserable now because I have none of the snacks left and I’m hungover.
