Very few of these items are showing up on the Tesco website...I am sad...
Doesnt look lke they stock near me anyway....booo

The 'range' is basically just other brands...repackaged.
The cheese is 'sheese'...it says so on the blog above....maybe other supermarkets will do this too....and I wont have to shop at evil Tesco!

Not sure if it's cheaper, need to go and find out weights and prices of sheese to find out really. It's around the same price and easier to get hold of though. I'm just pleased to see more vegan products in mainstream shops

Omg just looked at the picture, the idea of an entire section of a supermarket chill cabinet stacked with vegan food, especially a lot of those hard to get items like cheese and almond milk, is so exciting!!!!
I bet my tesco won't stock it as it's quite small but it is still a very exciting development!

It's incredible how much stuff there is, I was shocked. I've tried the chocolate coconut milk which is AMAZING, the creme caramel, the vanilla dessert shake and the sweet chilli spread. All of them delicious!

Oh how interesting, I might go find a a tesco sharpish!


Are they made with soya Hamry? (the ones you said were delicious)

Although sometimes I get tricked by free from, like when I bought FREE FROM bourbon biscuits and I was like yay biscuits I can eat... then I realised I could eat the regular ones at like 1/10th of the price haha.

Yeah, everything is soya except for the nut/rice/coconut milks.

Haha, I made that mistake with the free from bourbons, I just couldn't imagine regular ones being vegan.

haha most supermarket brands are vegan on the bourbon front!

It is Sheese yeah, the spreads are sheese too, so the chilli one is a cheesy chilli spread. The photos on my blog get a bit bigger if you click on them, but that's as large as they go I'm afraid.

ah...i thought I might be able to see the packaging a bit closer

I want to try some cheese! I got some cheezly and it is vile.

I assumed bourbons were only veggie as Sainsburys usually label their vegan items. Although checking the packet is does say 'produced in a factory that also handles milk' so maybe they cant for legal reasons...would you mind double checking these ingredients for me
(is a useless label reader)

Goth.Alice in my experience sainsburys only really lables about 1/2 it's actually vegan things, vegan. It's like sometimes they remember, sometimes they don't, lol. If you email, they always confirm it for you. From memory I think own brand were, but basics had milk powder or something in them. The free hotel ones are usually vegan too
(( lots and lots of biscuits are actually, it's always worth looking ))

Shame about the soya, I'll still have a look though

Sainsburys don't label things made on factory lines that process milk etc. as vegan to cover their asses with allergies I believe. So it's worth checking the labels if it just says vegetarian, you'll find a lot of stuff is fine

Score.

Im getting better at this label reading thing..it just when you see long chemically sounding words and enumbers (i have link to the enumbers but its hard to remember them all) I give up reading because I have no idea if they are plant or animal dirived!
