What a way to end the week. These delightfully spooky, Halloween themed raw cakes from Blitz Patisserie landed at TVK HQ this afternoon and were swiftly devoured by the team, who are currently hard at work preparing our third anniversary box (sign up now at www.thevegankind.com - you won’t want to miss it!) There are no words to describe how luxuriously decadent these beautiful cakes are. Mouthwateringly creamy and rich, they are 100% vegan, gluten free, wheat free and most impressively, free from refined sugar - you’d never be able to tell!

So what are the best things about Autumn? Breathing in fresh, crisp air, walking through leaves falling on rusty-golden woodland, hot, steaming mulled wine… and eating the stodgiest, heartiest, carbiest and most comforting food you can lay your hands on! And what’s even better? A more care-free attitude to eating that comes with a new Autumn wardrobe of chunky, cosy jumpers and long, winter coats.

Our vegan prayers have been answered. The one product (aside from the ‘mince’) that we were hoping Quorn would veganise, was their nuggets. We remember them fondly from our veggie days, and have high hopes for their vegan version. It’s a really good sign that they have released three vegan products in quick succession - we can’t wait to see what’s in store next.

It’s only been available in selected stores up until now, but vegans rejoice, Sainsbury’s have finally released their new range of vegan cheese, (ahem, sorry, GARY!) online. If you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few days, you may be wondering why on earth we are calling vegan cheese Gary, and if so, read all about it here.

Hell, YES. Zizzi really know how to treat us vegans right. Not a single falafel or houmous dish in sight….not that we don’t love a good falafel, but come ON, it gets old pretty quickly when restaurants and Supermarkets seem to think that’s all we eat. Well, Zizzi to the rescue. They just announced their new autumn menu and boy oh boy have they got our back.
