Just got back from our local morrisons in Seaford...
A tad hungry, so I thought I'd get myself one of those Aloo Gobi Saag things you stick in the microwave.
I looked at the packet and it said 'contains Milk' - I thought that can't be right... I looked at the ingredients. There's no cream, no lactic acid, no milk whatsoever... however, it's got Coconut Milk in it.
Because of that, it's not been labelled as Vegan.
Next, went for a packet of Veggie samosas, Asda's don't contain milk but Morrisons ones do. so I went to the deli counter and got a load of Tomato and Chilli Pakoras, which just said 'contains preservative'. I asked at the counter if they were vegan but the bloke there wasn't too sure.
I may have to write to customer services and get them to sort their labelling out as that's a bit pathetic. Ever since Hemlock became vegan, I've got used to looking at ingredients in supermarkets when we're food shopping.

Reason: Dosey Yorkie!!! Aloo Gobi Saag not SAP.
Looks yummy! If you don't see any milk products like whey, casein, ghee, lactose, etc. in the ingredients, it may just be an allergen alert, because they use the same mixing apparatus to make a milk food derived product. Most of us consider that OK, "vegan wise", I know I do. I'd say go for it.
Just to let you know, Morrison's organic Spanish Airen (white) wine and the organic Spanish Shiraz (red) are vegan! It's labelled vegetarian but they have checked into it and confirmed it's vegan. It's not the best wine in the world but it's nice enough.
Thanks for that RedWellies- I was having a confusing time finding wine in supermarkets!! i've gone from to !
You're welcome. Also, I've mentioned this before on the forum, all white Fetzer wine is vegan. Also, Kumala do two vegan wines - the organic red and the organic white. I'm not sure if Morrisons stock those.

Today in morrisons I discovered some crisps called stompers, they're morrisons own brand and I think it's a new product.
They're basically pickled onion monster munch but seem to be vegan yum! Only £1.09 for 10 packs too!
oooh i miss Monster Munch (i used to love the Flamin' Hot flavour - i don't know if they even still make that one)! if only i had a Morrisons near me - they're probably not worth travelling for are they?!

same here for our morrisons..fish, pizza bit and cooked chickens and other mad sticky red rib things right near the fruit and veg. the smell can be pretty bad..it's a weird smell..nasty.
the morrisons pizza bases are okay though..just plain bases - 49p.
i like their nut/raisin mix too..and the vegi deli stuff

The Morrisons in Leicester smelt (maybe still smells) so bad and they had random coolers full of meat everywhere, I just stopped going in the end. It smelt like chicken poo in there sometimes. I think they didn't clean the freezers propery or something. Haven't been there in a couple of years now, and it's a shame because it was the nearest food shop near my house, but I just couldn't stomach it any longer.

We usually do all our shopping in Morrisons and the local farm shop. This month we went to Asda instead and got a huge shop for £27. They had a big promotion on 5 for £1 on tins of beans, tomatoes etc. We've got enough staple food to last us a month!!!!
I went in to Morrisons this lunchtime and the customer desk there didn't know anything about a list of vegan stuff.
Grr..... hisss... !!!
That about sums it up for them. I _really_ can't stand them, and refuse to shop there because every time I tried to find out about vegan stuff, they either had no info, no phone number, no interest, or (more likely) no idea.
Plus, every one I've ever been into was divey, meat-focused, and generally scuzzy. They also seem to be one of the old-school get-cheap-stuff-and-bugger-the-consequences type shops which I try to avoid.
