I’ve found the crisp equivalent of a Yorkie chocolate bar – giant, chunky Slabs crisps. Each crisp is huge and absolutely full of flavour, literally awesome.

I don’t think I’ve ever tasted crisps with more flavour than these Sweet Red Chilli one’s, wow!

Full house, dairy and wheat free! Shame it’s only the sea salt flavour though.

Here is something to always watch out for, just because the flavouring of something sounds dairy free, such as ‘Salt & Malt Vinegar’ it’s really important to read the ingredients. As you can see these contain lactose, a sugar derived from milk.

Bread suitable for vegans? Fantastic! When I saw that these were individually cooked round breads I thought the crusts were going to be really hard but they were so light and really easy to eat, with or without a topping of mayo etc. I had to leave these alone after eating 3, 4, ok 6, because of my gluten intolerance but I highly recommend these to any veggie or vegan.

Dairy and Gluten Free (veggie) Holland & Barrett Haul

I went a little bit nuts the other day on the Holland and Barrett website when I discovered you can search by filtering out dairy and gluten – or whatever ingredient you don’t want. Perfect if your cupboards are bare and you really haven’t got the energy to shlep around different shops, reading the ingredients on everything and then dragging numerous bags onto a bus.

P1060335

I deliberately avoided anything that I could get from local shops, mine being a small-ish Co-op and Tesco Metro and I got multiples of things I knew I already liked.

Clockwise (if a your clock is rectangular):

Proper Corn Worcester Sauce and Sun-dried Tomato Flavour

The best savoury pop corn you will ever eat. Ever so slightly sweet, savoury and very tangy.

Le Venezane Potato Gnochi 

I absolutely love dumplings, pasta and ravioli, basically anything chunky and a little doughy that you cover in sauce, so to find this naturally gluten and dairy free gnochi was fantastic!

GranoVita Organic Mushroom Pate

Lovely and thick with lots of little chunks of mushroom, this tastes savoury and earthy but not too salty.

Dry Roasted Garbanzo (Chickpeas) Tomato, Garlic & Herb

A lot of the flavouring had gone to the bottom of the bag and hadn’t remained on the chickpeas so they didn’t really taste of much. They were also incredibly dry and so was my mouth after eating them, which was really unpleasant!

Mini Moos Bunny Comb Bars

Really nice vegan choccy and the honey comb pieces add a some sweetness. I just wish the bar were coated on both sides.

nakd Banana Crunch

Solid, sweet (but not sickly) and crunchy. One of my favourite snacks.

nakd Pecan Pie

I’ve never eaten pecan pie so I can only judge this bar off it’s own merits. This is a lot softer than the banana crunch thanks to the dates in it. It has a slightly bitter sweetness to it which I think I like….

Goody Good Stuff Sour Fruit Salad

I don’t like most sour sweets as they make me break out into a sweat but these were really nice.

Goody Good Stuff Summer Peaches

I absolutely love these! I used to get them in pick n’mix from the cinema as a kid.

GranoVita Vegetable Pate with onions, herbs and spices

I haven’t tried this yet as I don’t want two pates on the go at once. The bloke has had this in the past and said it was ‘perfectly nice’.

Free and Easy soups

All of the flavours this brand does are wonderful. Medium – thick, tasty comfort food.

Biona Organic Spiced Pumpkin Soup

This is one of the best soups I’ve ever eaten, out of a jar, tin or at a restaurant. Medium consistency, some onion and carrot so it’s not totally smooth and subtle spices.

Have you tried any of these? Which one’s would most want to?
