Just wondering if anyone has tried these?

Twlight (mars) joker (snicker) buccaneer (milkyway) & Mahalo (bounty) & are they always out of stock :satisfied: or can you buy them elsewhere in uk?

Or tried these organic chocolate nut & chews?

I've had the whipping cream. It tasted quite like I remember cream in a can tasting... I'm not sure that's a recommendation though ;)

It was nice on hit chocolate etc.

I think the chocolate bars are a vegan store exclusive. I seem to remember it saying on there that they'd be back in in mid-December.

The cream is great stuff. They sell it in a lot of health food shops too. I prefer the whipping cream in a box, because the squirty one always seem to work for about 5 minutes and then runs out of propellent!

the squirty cream does tend to not last too long but here are lots of different creams too.

I suppose the squitry stuff is just a fun product. Great for party games & a bit of adult fun:surprised_ani: Goes nicely with choc spead.

Because we're doing the right thing in not eating animals, and like all martyrs, have to suffer for our good deeds!

It's more expensive partly because the manufacturers don't get the economies of scale that Cadbury's etc do.

So what we need to do is eat a lot more vegan chocolate :devil:

its like everything though i cant remember who makes them but i think they are like wine gums 3 something for a tiny bag when its loads cheaper to buy the non vegan ones, i mean like fish fingers or stuff you get cheap where as vegan ones are dear for something like 6 doesnt make sense

it's down to quality as well - regular chocolate is padded full of cheap milk products so it stretches further

some vegan chocolate is extortionate - 3 for something smaller than a milky way in my local HFS

I have found vegan dark chocolate cheap in Lidl. It does not say vegan on the packet but check the ingredients there are no animal fats or dairy in it.

I'm sure Aldi's got a range of dark products that are vegan too (provided that 'may contain traces' labels don't bother you)

Because we're paying the price (with money) so that the animals don't have to (with their miserable lives).

Vegan stuff doesn't get the massive state subsidies that animal farming relies on for its existence. So we're helping to keep down the price of meat & dairy and prop up cruelty and environmental degradation whenever we pay tax. Shocking, really.

The Twilight and Jokerz bars are out of this world! Although I've only been Vegan a year, I haven't had a Mar bar in a good 3-4 years and the Twilight bars taste exactly how I remember them! I had to keep checking the wrapper while I was eating it because I kept thinking 'There's no way this is vegan'.
Since cutting out dairy I've rarely eaten any chocolate as I'm not a fan of dark and "milk" chocolate is rather tasteless and bland. These hit the nail on the head. Perfect.
I wish there was some way of bulk buying though, so I wouldn't have to pay 1.65 a bar!

yep, the marsbar is 'omnivore' approved. my bf said it'd be even better than a normal one, there's more caramel in the vegan ones.

I just tried the Twilight bar today & whilst I wasn't expecting too much from it, it tasted AMAZING. Even my brother (who eats real Mars bars) agreed that it was pretty good, although he also mentioned that it had more caramel than the real ones.

According to the manufacturer's website (http://www.gomaxgofoods.com/where.htm), veganstore.co.uk is currently the only UK supplier :( and at 1.65 each I agree, pretty expensive.

Also, if you miss white chocolate I'd suggest trying the new dairy free white chocolate buttons from Tesco. (http://www.tesco.com/superstore/xpi/6/xpi65244136.htm) A small bag is only 38p! I liked them, but it's been so long since I've had real white chocolate that I'll have to let you decide for yourself!

Anyway, can't wait to try the Buccaneer bar next. Will keep you posted.

The Secret Society of Vegans are opening up a big new shop in the new year near King's Cross. I wonder if they'll be able to get hold of the Twilight bars.

Me and a friend did an order from the vegan store to save on postage in fact spent 50 between us so got free postage.

So I now have 6 twilight bars, 1 buccaneer and 1 joker:D

Will make them last!!!
