Oh yes.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I like Inspiral cake too. Also it's good that you can buy Inspiral cake at Whole Foods so you can avoid surly Inspiral staff.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"></div>

Hahaha, yes, if only everyone bought their products from Wholefoods. Then they wouldn't have to deal with all these annoying customers who decide to just turn up, buy things and expect good customer service <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Oh and I forgot to mention Twilight and Jokerz bars - amazing, it's so nice to have something similar to mars/snickers type bars available (even at a hefty price and online, rather than just plain chocolate or chocolates. It's one thing I really missed for a long time.<br><br>
I'm going to Ms Cupcake soon on a trip to London, can't wait! Their reveiws are so good, and the flavours sound amazing!<br><br>
I'm finding this thread super handy.</div>

<br>
Ms Cupcake sells the bars for a pretty reasonable price. I hope you have fun at the shop, it's a great place to hang out. I recommend getting down there on a Saturday, that way they always have lots of savoury and sweet goods to choose from. Usually donuts are done on a Saturday too! And then you have Rosies cafe next door, they do tea with soy milk

I read that Asda does two brands of vegan chocolate spread. I get a bit scared by Asda, it's too busy in there.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br>
Does anyone know a good vegan hair removal cream?

Yeah their own brand dark choc spread is vegan and they do Whole Earth dark choc spread too. Asda is busy as hell but worth going in for their meat free mixes. The sausage and burger mixes are so good and really cheap too. They're also the only supermarket I've found wholewheat lasagna sheets in, not even Waitrose stocks them.<br><br>
Sainsburys do peanut butter with choc chips that is vegan, I found it the other day. So fricking good.

'Meat' - ASDA sausage mix packs, Fry's schnitzels, Fry's sausages<br>
'Cheese' - they all suck fairly equally<br>
'Milk' - any rice milk, AlproSoy vanilla, Oatly<br>
Toiletries - the Simple range, Original Source<br>
Ice cream - Swedish glace<br>
Vegan-friendly restaurant - Nando's<br><br>
I think those are pretty much the only substitutes I use.

When I went to Whole Foods I was really really disappointed. They didnt have much vegan stuff at all. All I bought was a jute bag (needed a new one) and some fiji water (id heard of the brand being a 'big thing' so thought id try it- it is nice water). Did I miss something?! I was in the one in Kensington which afaik is the only one

Dude. Whole Foods has loads of vegan stuff. In the bakery upstairs, there are vegan cupcakes and all sorts of stuff from Inspiral and Saf. They have yummy fresh-made bread, most of which is vegan, and is easily identifiable. The hot bar/salad bar/deli counter has loads of vegan stuff. They're not so good about labeling what is vegan in the deli though. They have these special vegan stickers, but only about 1/4 of the vegan dishes are labeled. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dizzy2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dizzy:"> Hot bar has a tofu dish ever day along with pasta, veggies, etc.<br><br>
Downstairs, they have chocolates labeled as vegan at the confectionery, loads and loads of vegan goodies in the frozen and chilled section (mock meats, cheeses, milks, Booja Booja, frozen meals, etc.). Lots of vegan toiletries too, but you have to hunt a bit for them I think.<br><br>
There's another one in Camden and a few others dotted around London too, but I can't recall where exactly. I'm glad they haven't made it to Oxford yet, as I'd probably be broke. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

When I went upstairs all there was was a closed cafe/bar and a really overpriced restaurant. there was no bakery. hmmmm maybe cause it was a sunday? I saw the Booja Booja ice cream (next to some £16 non-vegan sorbet - seriously £16 for a milk bottle full of ice cream?!) but not much else. and they had some standard quorn/linda mccartney stuff but i saw nothing 'special'. I'm rarely in Kensington but love Camden so next time I go I'll have a gander.<br><br>

I should've said the ground floor, not upstairs, for the bakery...you walk straight through it to enter the store. There's a small WF in Soho too...smaller selection, but with a good West End vibe (Kensington's a bit snooty <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">)

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/worried.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":worried:"> I think I might try it on my leg first! I used to get my eyebrows waxed and that hurt a bit but I'm assuming the eye area is more sensitive. It can't be as painful as getting tattoos and I could handle that pain.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I've used superdrug wax strips, and I guess it's the same as all wax, in that the more cautious you are in ripping it off, the more pain there is. I used them mostly for bikini waxing/etc, and as long as I was quick, it wasn't so bad. To begin with I was nervy, pulled it off half-slowly, and wound up with an awful bruisy rash... not the look I was going for! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blank.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":|">

Dependent on your view point, they are not vegan. I stopped eating them shortly after turning vegan as they are owned by Unilever (their logo is on the side of the pot). Unilver are on Peta's list of companies that test on animals, so I stopped using Sure deoderant as well, which is also a Unilver brand. The curry one always used to be my favourite. Fortunately Tesco do a value pot noodle in curry flavour which while not quite as good, is still bloody good and its only about 35p!

Milk: I used Tesco unsweetened soya for the first few months, but have since changed to So Good Oat milk and prefer it.<br><br>
Faux sausage: Redwood Gourmet Sage & Marjoram, which only just shade it over their Gourmet Lincolnshire style. It really pains me to say that coming from Lincolnshire!<br><br>
Faux chicken: Redwood Gourmet style chicken pieces. Excellent for using in fajitas or a stir fry. Equally good are Frys chicken style burgers in breadcrumbs.<br><br>
Other faux meats : Redwood Chorizo chunks are excellent for adding on to vegan pizza and I also mix them in with Uncle Bens spicy mexican rice. Redwood Pepperoni slices and their ham slices I find excellent for sandwiches. Comapanion tinned Seitan of which there are 4 or 5 styles are really good! I bought them from a local chinese supermarket and had them in my cupboard for about 6 weeks before I plucked up the courage to open a tin! Really tasty. Redwood Gourmet quarter pounders are the best veggie burgers I have ever had by a long way.<br><br>
Faux cheese: Tofutti Mozarella slices. They have to be melted, otherwise they are not up to much at all, but melted they are great! I put them on burgers just before taking them out the grill, or cut it in to strips and add it to vegan pizzas.<br><br>
Chocolate: Tesco Finest Fairtrade Organic 70% Dominican Republic Plain Chocolate with Ginger<br><br>
Ice cream: Swedish glacé blueberry<br><br>
Desserts: Alpro Soya toffee/caramel flavour. Divine! Also I ADORE Mrs Crimbles Dutch Apple cake.<br><br>
Mayonnaise: Plamil egg free. As good as Hellmans IMO.<br><br>
Chain restaurant: Pizza Hut. Vegan pizza plus unlimited salad bar.<br><br>
Toiletries- Co-operative Hand Wash Soft White <a href="http://www.co-operativepharmacy.co.uk/Co-operative-Hand-Wash-Soft-White-500ml/id-7976202" target="_blank">http://www.co-operativepharmacy.co.u...0ml/id-7976202</a><br><br>
My favourite vegan food by an absolute mile though has to be Marmite XO. Oh my! Also worth a mention are Tesco mini spring rolls. Dip them in some sweet chilli dipping sauce and they are so tasty.
