    Ah, that does not sound very nice at all. Personally, I wouldn't order from them again.

    I'm guessing they have a "don't send samples" flag on their system, but not a "send only specific types of samples" flag.

    Mind you, if they manage to send the right stuff to the right address they're doing better than certain mail order companies I've dealt with recently

    Yup, that's it. Here's their email.

    ^ that used to annoy me, too, but they only give out free stuff if it's close to the sell by date anyway, don't they?
    It shouldn't be difficult to work out you're vegan by looking at your search preferences and your order, v.annoying.

    ^That's what I thought. We ordered four blocks of Sheese, one tub of creamy Sheese and two pots of soya yogurt. Surely if you see someone buying that the thought would occur tht maybe they don't eat dairy, but no, they threw two pots of goat's cheese into the same chiller box.

    I don't buy from goodness direct either - their customer service is appalling. I bought chocolate drops from there and they tasted of mint. I told them and the reply was - no they dont..... idiots - tis a wonder they have a business at all.

    Oooh I'm glad I looked at this topic, I did not realise redwood foods have an online shop. Nowhere near me sells their gravy and its much nicer than any other vegan gravy!

    I do an internet order from Plamil every now and then.. It always comes really quickly, is packaged well and I've never had any problems with them New products tend to be on the website first and they have loads more choice on there as other places only sell 1 or 2 things from their ranges. http://www.plamil.co.uk

    Doves Farm have an online shop too. I've ordered from them a couple of times, although their stuff is quite easy to find in shops so its only worth it if you buy lots of their stuff. http://www.dovesfarm.co.uk

    I used to use Abel & Cole but they package stuff in sheep wool and don't think that is a problem for vegans (also their customer service people can be rude and are always really pushy!).

    At the moment I've been using Suma's site as it has everything I need other than fresh stuff. Their products are great, they sell other brands (like Plamil & Nakd) and as they are a worker co-operative are pretty ethical too http://www.sumamarket.coop

    I've ordered some vitamins from goodness direct and they were quite quick, although they also gave a free sample of milk chocolate covered popcorn. I didn't know they give samples at all so I was surprised until I saw that it's milk chocolate. I'll give the popcorn to my flatmates..

    I recently ordered some stuff from Goodness Direct and they sent me a nice vegan freebie - I had ticked the vegan option on their site options page https://secure.goodnessdirect.co.uk/...t/options.html, not sure if that helped or whether it was just good luck.

    Veganchic - looks good, will probably order some stuff for Easter.

    More on Goodness Direct: I ordered some bits and bobs using a code from a facebook ad for £10 off spends over £35. They didn't send me any freebies but I thought that discount was really good. I ordered Thursday evening and it came yesterday.

    I really cant fault goodness direct. Ive had the odd damaged yogurt or broken pizza base but on a whole no complaints. Ive logged on as vegan so only view and order vegan products. Any freebie ive recieved has also been vegan. Full marks from me!

    I found this place online a couple weeks ago, its a bit like Goodness Direct (sells meat, dairy, vegan, vegetarian etc) but they have some stuff that you dont get anywhere else (Amy's Burgers, Amy's Rice Macaroni With Dairy Free Cheese, Le Sojami Dairy free cheese, Yakso Organic Seitan, Ready made frozen nut roasts, Tofurkey Feast etc).
    The site can be a bit difficult to navigate around (If you click on grocery, then Biscuits & crackers you only get 6 results until you realize there are options in the green bar for either sweet or savoury) but they have a good range of stuff.http://www.naturalgrocery.co.uk/Default.aspx

    Thanks, Firestorm. Just had a look. Unfortunately, honey appears to be vegan? Organic Lemon Honey Biscuits turned up in my filtered search, and they have marked them as vegan. Will just pop them a quick email!

    eta - Actual honey doesn't flag up as vegan. I think that is possibly the only product. Whoops! Something always slips under the net

    Yeah, you've got to be so careful sometimes, a couple of months ago I'm sure there was a wrap on Goodness Direct labeled vegan, but it had cheese in it ( I think there was a vegan one with Sheese in and a veggie one with dairy cheese but they had the labeling the wrong around - seems to have been fixed now). Theres a site for a company in Scotland called realfoods and I had to tell them about 5-10 of their products over the weekend (either labeled as vegan when they weren't or were vegan and not labeled) luckily they have an option for each product where you can report inaccurate info.

    When dealing with non vegan companies I tend to not bother using the filters either, I find they filter out stuff that is vegan and has not been marked properly (Goodness direct does not label all conscious chocolate bars as vegan, but they are).
    I've even found a vegan website selling a non-vegan product (www.vegan.co.uk had a Green & Black cereal bar with honey in - I emailed, they removed it and apologised, they are a small operation at the moment and it slipped through the net)

    I think the sites do appreciate a friendly email. It helps their site.

    Hey. Thought i would mention my store here www.vegan.co.uk . been on the forum a while and have been working on it for a year or two. It's brand new and it's only me MrGreen working on it at the moment.
    But im working on making it more than just a store. I want a community there, i've got a great news feed and welcome anyone who has any websites or blogs to email me and i'll try to get a mention in the "friends" section.
    It is just starting up and we only do UK shipping but im hoping to really achieve some great things with the help of all the vegans out there!

    Hi
    I have visited the site a couple of times and was quite impressed, I think you have a couple of things other shops dont tend to have (individual cartons of lima chocolate rice milk?).
    Hope its a success for you

    Thanks, we are doing a bit of a revamp Re. Navigation. A lot of the store is getting jumbled now the amount of items is increasing steadily (I'm dedicating this month to that specifically.)
    So give it a few weeks and come again and hopefully the layout will be much friendlier, also still in two minds about what to do with the front page. It is very simple at the moment. perhaps some links to products, or to certain areas of the website.
    Any advice i would welcome .

    Usually that'd be in the sauce packets though, the natto itself is normally plain and then you can put whatever you want on it.

    ^ You should mention in your post that you're a rep for the company. Though you don't need to now as I've just done it for you

    We just got an order from Goodness Direct.

    Good news: They no longer use polystyrene boxes for frozen goods, instead they're using double walled silver painted boxes.
    Bad news: They thought that we'd enjoy some complimentary goats cheese and milk & vanilla baby cookies...wtf?

    Oh... if anyone shops from them use code SO100561
    iherb.com does the same - even if you can choose freebies yourself, they always enclose something extra, and sometimes it is not vegan..
    However, I keep ordering from them as postage is affordable (starting from $2 for the first pound, $4 for 3 pounds) and some vegan things are much cheaper than in other places. Also, you get $5 discount with your first order (use code CEG631 ).

    I found this place a while ago (http://www.auravita.com/), but I've just ordered some stuff from them because they have the new Booja Booja collection on sale (£12.40 instead of £14.99), they have quite a few vegan products, some of which are unusual and hard to get hold of (Molenaartje Fruit Break Bars, Organic Food Bars). The funny thing is I ordered 7 items and they might be posting them all individually, I got an email yesterday saying they had dispatched 1 bar Organic food bar but the other 6 items were still pending.

    I'm sure it's been posted on here but I can't find it so could someone help me out? It appeals more than Redwood's Celebration Roast...

    Unless anyone has other suggestions? I preferably want something family size!

    Here you go (http://www.naturalgrocery.co.uk/Prod...e=025583004634), its £29.99, with free delivery over £30 (£3.5 Charge for ice boxes). Mine arrived on Thursday and I cant wait for Christmas now.

    You can also get it here for the same price but its got a delivery charge of £14.99 http://www.planetorganic.com/tofurky-vegan-feast.html (and they might not deliver to Lancashire)

    Yeah I had to sit down when I saw the price, but you do get a lot more for the money - Redwoods Roast was 390 Grams, this is about 750 Grams plus you get gravy, dumplings and a wish stick! I might not be able to afford it next year so I decided to splash out this time, and I'm spending Christmas at an omni relatives house so it will make it easier to take a plate full of stuff ready,

    If anyone's doing a first time order on iHerb, you can use the voucher code QEH834 to get $5 off. International shipping rates are good and they do loads of unusual American vegan stuff, like Dandies marshmallows, Crazy Rumours lipbalm and Peanut Butter & Co white chocolate peanut butter. The website is a bit difficult to navigate and you have to know what you're searching for but it has alot of good stuff.

    Hi I'm new to this forum. But have been a vegan for a long time. Mooshoes has a brilliant selection of shoes, they're based in New York, and when I was there I bought some lovely sandals I couldn't get anywhere else. I wish I had stocked up more while I was there. Definitely worth a visit if you're in New York!
