I'm wondering if anyone knows of any snack type bars that happen to be vegan rather than the expensive health food store type ones.

One's I know of:
Asda - Choc chip cereal bars (value range)
Sainsburys - Oat and raisin cereal bar (value range)
9 Bar (nutty variety only, others contain honey)
Doves farm cereal bars and flapjack bars
Lidl nut cereal bars
Frys chocolate cream bar
Tesco finest dark choc cereal bars

I'm pretty sure Tesco do a chocolate and orange flavoured cereal bar, in their 'Light Choices' range, which is vegan.

Nakd by Natural Balance Foods

They are all about 49p each if you buy them loose (for a small bar) but you can get multipacks which are cheaper.

Some, but not all, of the Devon Value crumbles are marked vegan on the back.

I would hazard a guess that they are less healthy for you than many of the other products listed in this thread. They are very sweet.

Thanks for starting this thread Simon. I wasn't aware of most of the products you mention, so I have benefitted from your question more than you benefit from my answer!

Simon, are the Sainsbury bars in your area labeled as vegan?

ETA: I was at Sainsburys today, and saw them labeled as vegetarian, and containing Vitamin D as the only questionable ingredient.

Also Ritter Sport marzipan, and the peppermint variety. Not sold in many shops, but often in obscure petrol stations.

^ We have Ritter Sport Marzipan bars here in Canada, luckily they carry it in one of our major drugstore-type shops so I can usually get my hands on it. I love them!

Ritter Sport peppermint here is not vegan any longer, as it has butterfat. I actually looked at one just yesterday, but bought the marzipan instead. You can see a discussion about it on another message board too: http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=25319.0

On the plus like, I like that the labels for Ritter Sport are marked, so that you can recycle them.

anyone know a website that I can order the marzipan one please? I can't find it in any shops around here...they used to sell it in Tesco about a year or so back but they stopped *sob*

They still sell it in some tesco I've been into, not all, but some. If you want, I'll happily keep my eyes open and post some across to you if I find any :)

That is a very kind offer, thank you very much :-) But now I know that Tesco has not stopped selling it, just my branch then I will check out the Tesco in the next town :D

Vegan Essentials has them (http://www.veganessentials.com/catalog/ritter-sport-marzipan-bar.htm)... I think they're located in the USA though so I'm not sure if shipping them to you would be cost effective. I know I never order from the UK because shipping to NA is usually ridiculous... I imagine it's the same the other way around?

A bit of Googling produced this result:

There were a few other places that sold it, but they all appeared to be out of stock.

That's a really bad price. Tesco IIRC sell it for about 1.

A couple of years back they had them on 2 for 1. Needless to say I bought quite a few :)

Yes, there were other online stores that had it listed for a cheaper price, but they were all out of stock. aquarterof.co.uk say they're having "an absolute nightmare" getting hold of it at the moment.

They look nice. Will have to keep an eye out for them. Morrisons do their own apricot crumbles in the bakery section and they are quite nice. Wonder if they are similar.

Waitrose tend to stock the marzipan and peppermint variety. You can shop online with them to get it delivered.

9 Bar (nutty variety only, others contain honey)


Hope no one buys these as after noticing the ingredients on the new packaging for the nutty flavour now list honey I took a look on their website to see if the recipe had changed or if it was a misprint. The ingredients on the website still listed it as not having honey so I emailed them to check. The guy emailed back saying he was sorry it was a misprint on the website and should have listed honey and that the bars have always contained it! I was seriously annoyed. The packaging had listed only vegan ingredients for a good 2 years or more!!

I could kick myself, I saw the marzipan bar in Tesco yesterday and went to look at it as I'm addicted to marzipan, but I figured it wouldn't be vegan so I just grabbed my normal chocolate and left! Arggh! Next time I go in, I'll buy a few :)

It's worth looking for the marzipan one at off licenses, surprisingly many of them stocking it.
Last time (august) I bought them at WH Smith (2 for 1!).

It's cheaper and just as tasty to buy a block of marzipan from the cake decorating section of the supermarket, cut it up into squares, then melt your favourite choccy in the microwave and drizzle it over the marzipan............not that I'm one for leading you astray or anything...................:)

I'm intrigued by the Tesco finest dark chocolate cereal bar...............I'll look out for it tomorrow when I'm there. I hope they still sell it after all this time.............you know what it's like.........one week it's there and the next it isn't! :)
