There’s really no getting away from it, the only way to know for sure whether a product is vegan or not is to know how it was made – and that generally means checking the label or asking the manufacturer. However, social media has proved to be a powerful tool for allowing vegans to share information on products that you perhaps wouldn’t expect to be vegan, but are. Some of these are “accidentally vegan” – i.e. they just happen not to contain any animal ingredients, and some are products produced deliberately for the vegan market by vegans who want to give up the cruelty without giving up the products they used to love. DISCLAIMER: Just because it’s vegan, doesn’t mean it’s good for you!
For example, you might like:
Walkers Prawn Cocktail crisps (Salt & Vinegar are ok too, but not Cheese & Onion. Check the packet as manufacturers can change the formulation without warning).
Bourbon biscuits (almost always, though check the packaging).
