Marks & Spencer seem to be on a mission at the moment, bringing out new vegan options left, right and center. Along with this vegan chicken replacement, I’ve tried their Coconut & Cocoa Drink and their Edamame Veggie Burgers, both of which were amazing!
As someone that’s born and bred in leafy green Surrey, I am always excited by anything vegan going on this way. From simple things such as finding a vegan sarnie in a shop to hearing about a vegan fair that includes local brands.
No shade on bigger brands (ily, too) but more local, smaller brands are where my interest lies, so when seeing the likes of LoveSeitan from Guildford and April’s Table from Weybridge on the list of stalls at Surrey Vegan Fair, I was on it!
I avoid caffeine at all costs, it doesn’t agree with me anymore so I am always looking for decaf alternatives. Barleycup have a range of decaffeinated cereal drinks including Barleycup granules, powder and even a version with dandelion!
Mates over? Chilli fries. Family party? Chilli fries. Birthday? Chilli fries. Bad day? Chilli fries. Good day? Chilli fries. Just… Hungry? CHILLI FRIES!
I was lucky enough to be invited back to Gin Festival to review their 2018 event in Guildford and damn, I was excited!
Jelly was always one of those things I loved in the pre-vegan days and if I’m honest, when I was younger I was unaware what it was made of. It held fond memories of jelly and ice cream at birthday parties when I was a kid (just a British thing?!), so when finding out it contains gelatine and what exactly that is, I started phasing it out.
A bright space, fresh food and lovely staff make up the perfect setting to relax and get something to eat, hence why Burrito Loco is one of my favourite places to go in Guildford.
