Jammie Dodgers no longer vegan

All I seem to do lately is report on food stuffs not being vegan and here is another that is going to break a few hearts.

Jammie Dodgers.

These glorious and highly-addictive biscuits with a jam centre were accidentally vegan for many years, but times have changed and the ingredient list now includes milk protein.

I emailed the company to find out why this change has occurred and I got the following statement in return:

We have recently carried out a reformulation of our Jammie Dodgers™ recipe, based on consumer feedback as how best to improve the flavour and texture of the product.

The reformulation has resulted in the addition of milk proteins, in line with our mini Jammie Dodgers™, and is consequently now listed as an allergen in the ingredients.

We take allergen control very seriously and aim to ensure we give the correct information to customers in order to help them make the right choices.

Well, ain’t that a kick in the teeth?

One concerned citizen is not going down without a fight and has started a petition to ask parent company Burton’s Biscuits to restore Jammie Dodgers to their vegan-friendly status.

You can sign the petition here.

  1. It’s hard to believe that someone taking part in this survey ( who are these people) would respond with ” you know what this needs….milk proteins that’ ll nail it”. Sounds like cobblers to me. My biscuit tin gets emptier and emptier…

    • Yes, the survey business sounds a bit suspect.

  2. I guess I’ll save some calories then. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. Couldn’t give a monkeys about Jammie Dodgers, TBH, what I’m personally still grieving for are the Plain Chocolate Rich Tea biscuits you used to get in days of yore. That was a biscuit in a class of it’s own, obviously too rarified for today’s tastes as no-one produces them AT ALL-and I have checked exhaustively- all I can do is to buy some rich teas and melt chocolate over them -but- Not The Same!!!! 🙁

    • Have you tried dark chocolate digestives from Aldi? Also Lotus caramelised biscuits are pretty good with espresso.
