5 American products I wish were in the UK

Ok so some of these products may be available online now, but here’s 5 vegan foods that I wish were more widely available.

Lara Bars

Ah my absolute favourite. I discovered these a few years ago and every trip since I have stocked up or else requested from my American based friends to bring some over on their visits. Like Nakd bars but a touch bigger and with flavours such as Peanut Butter and Jelly Cherry Pie and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. https://www.larabar.com 

PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter by Bell Plantation

I discovered this product after my peanut butter obsession was getting a little out of control and I wanted an alternative with all of the taste and less of the calories. This is made by removing over 85% of the fat from premium quality peanuts.Great in smoothies and porridge. https://www.bellplantation.com

Earth Balance Popcorn 

I have heard great things about this range. I have only ever tried the dairy free margarine from Earth Balance but am itching to get my hands on the aged white cheddar flavoured popcorn. http://earthbalancenatural.com

Ben and Jerry’s Ice-cream

You might have heard of a little ice-cream company called Ben and Jerry’s? And I’m sure it is not news that they launched 4 vegan varieties in the US back in February. When are we getting them in the UK, B&J, when? http://www.benjerry.com

Gardein

Ok so we have Fry’s over here which is tremendous but I am still desperate to discover more of the Gardein range after trying an amazing chick’n dish in a Florida restaurant a few years ago.  First on my list is their Szechuan Beefless Strips followed a close second by their Barbecue Chick’n Wings. https://gardein.com 

I would love to know what’s on your wish list.

Thanks for reading.

    Amy’s Sonoma veggie burgers. Delicious, and both gluten-free and vegan. Can’t find ’em in Poland, though… and I also miss Earth Balance’s butter.

    They have the PB2 in Sainsburys now!

    Agree about the gardein – I love the stuff. Would also like Beyond Meat and Fieldroast products in the UK.
