Roasters / Mince Pie

At work they got a free product from Ocado, called ‘Roasters’ from Dilly&Wolf. They didn’t like it, so they asked if I wanted to have it. The flavour they got was ‘sea salt and cider vinegar’. Now I don’t like crisp or chips with vinegar on it, so I assumed I wouldn’t like these either. Just because they turned out to be vegan I tried them and I surprisingly liked them. I ate the whole pack in one afternoon. The structure is totally yum and I even liked the flavour. Now that’s a first when it comes to salt&vinegar. I looked them up and they do 4 more flavours: wasabi&horseradish, soy&ginger, coconut&chilli and sweet&salty. Check out their website to see what they look like. They’re all vegan, but as the salt&vinegar only has 4 ingredients I think that one is the healthiest option. They do use good products though and it’s not crap. I’m curious about the other flavours too! I think it’s a perfect snack for in the evening, watching a movie or something.

It’s Christmas time and that means ‘mince pies’! Here in the UK everybody is crazy about them. A lot of them are not vegan, but Cafe Nero does a vegan one. I think they deserve a huge compliment for offering a vegan version, well done them! I never had a mince pie before, so I was very curious about them. Why was everybody so crazy about them? So a while ago, I popped into a Cafe Nero and ordered one. First of all, they look very nice. I really like the star on top. When I took a bite it was kind of what I expected and to be really honest I don’t really like it. It’s just way too sweet for me. I did really like the dough around it, it was perfect. I assume that the middle was tasty too, but it’s just my personal taste what thinks it’s too sweet. I’m happy I tried one and if you like mince pies, try the one in Cafe Nero. It’s a nice size too!
