16 Dec 25 DAYS OF DECEMBER – DAY 16 VEGAN WAGON WHEELS
There are so many things vegans used to miss…snickers, twixes and whole blocks of cheddar on a fork spring to mind.
But we’re no longer in the sixties. Vegan cheese is no longer brown and cardboardy. Vegan chocolate is so good that the carnivores are poaching it for themselves! The thing about vegan chocolate is it often ends up being ethically sourced with high quality, cruelty free ingredients. You can tell by the taste.
Ananda’s Classic Roundups are like vegan wagonwheels and the staff have been buying these with their lunch money. These are gelatine free mashmallow with two handmade chocolate biscuits, then the finest Belgian chocolate and dont forget the middle!
We have four different versions:
Classic: These have strawberry jam in the middle and are most staff’s favourites. We had one guy buy one, start eating it while walking down Mill Road and then come back and buy two!
Celebrate: Marc De Champagne fondant centre (!) in the marshmallow. This is a world class sweet in any respect, let alone vegan.
Mint Me: Kind of like a big After Eight in wagon wheel form, these bad boys also have mint chocolate around the outside. Vegan, obviously.
Gluten Free: The same as the classic strawberry jam one, but without the gluten. We’re big fans of making sure everyone can have treats.
We love the company that makes these, they started because they were sad they couldn’t find marshmallows that were gelatine free for their children to have toasting on a fire. They’ve won several awards and they hand make everything.
These are brilliant vegan stocking fillers. But also, if you’re in charge of hosting Christmas (or whatever you celebrate), can we suggest that you take a few moments to have a cup of tea and one of these on a plate? Makes all the difference to your wellbeing!
