One of my favourite things to do in a supermarket is to trot down the seasonal aisle. You know the one. The aisle rammed with novelty gifts and food products related to whatever time of year it is.
It’s where the shops cram the latest gimmicky toys at Christmas time or the One Direction mugs with chocolate eggs in them leading up to Easter.
This aisle is often the site of vegan junk food finds, especially if you are cruising the seasonal aisle at your local Sainsbury’s. Remember when I snapped up these vegan sweets at Halloween time? They were in the seasonal aisle.
The lucky dip that is the seasonal aisle of my nearest Sainsbury’s coughed up some new, never-before-seen vegan snacks for me yesterday and I only bought them in order to share with you all. Of course. Read more ›
All I have been hearing for the past few years is “Hannah Banana this” and “Hannah Banana that”. People have been falling over themselves to tell me how the Southampton-based vegan bakery is incredible and my life is worth nothing without eating their sweet treats.
Well, I finally got a package from Hannah Banana Bakery a few days ago and you wanna know something?
Hannah Banana Bakery is FUCKING amazing! Read more ›

This is the moment for which all budding vegan entrepreneurs have been waiting.
But the sad news first.
The much-loved Moose’s Kitchen in St. Leonards-On-Sea (Hastings) is set to close. The owner is moving on due to the arrival of a baby in her life and she is super keen to keep the location completely plant-based, hence her desire to find a vegan buyer.
The photo below is a screen shot from the commercial property website listing the sale. Click here to visit the website.
It is a gorgeous-looking cafe on the shop-lined Kings Road. The spot is a one minute walk to the train station and not much more to the seafront.
What a wonderful opportunity for vegan food lovers. Get your finances in order and snap this place up. Keep it vegan!
Today was intense.
I work with Fry’s Family Foods and one of my jobs is to help run stands and exhibits at shows. Today marked the return of the Animal Aid Christmas Fayre to Kensington Town Hall and I got to take Fry’s to the masses. It was intense.
The event was packed solid with thousands of compassionate people, all jostling to get some tasty food and support the animal charities in attendance. Animal Aid do a faultless job putting this event on and I think it would be lovely if you followed them on Twitter.
It was a wonderful day full of happy faces. I was completely worn out from running the stand for Fry’s but the endless stream of friendly greetings from the crowd kept me on my toes and feeling upbeat.
I am indebted to the incredible volunteers from Animal Equality who helped with staffing the Fry’s stand. I honestly could not have done it without them. Please follow this fabulous group on Twitter.
Another crucial component of the day was Sara of Pomodoro E Basilico. Sara cooked from 9:00am until 4:30pm non-stop so we had delicious bolognese to hand out to hundreds and hundreds of people. She was a powerhouse and you should all follow her food business on Twitter.
Now I need my bed. I’m worn out.
You can also follow Fry’s Family Foods on their UK Twitter account.
I just got a phone call from Frank at Kabaret (the venue for London Vegan Drinks) as he wanted to let me know about the food being sold during the event tonight.
If you are coming along to London Vegan Drinks tonight, you are in for a treat. The food options include:
£7.95 World food buffet featuring Mexican cuisine, Mediterranean dishes and more.
£7.95 Pinto bean burgers with a side of fried potatoes with skins on
Be part of one of the biggest vegan social events on the planet and be well fed at the same time.
See you in a few hours!
I am slowly working my way through reporting back to you on the vegan wonders of Glasgow. I can see why it has often been named ‘Best vegan UK city’. The place is absolutely heaving with vegan-friendly eateries.
Take The 13th Note as one example.
This vegetarian cafe is primarily a live music venue, but food certainly doesn’t take a back seat. My group ate extremely well as you will notice from the photos below.
