Sainsburys Is Selling A Vegan Friendly Cheese Platter For Christmas
These days it seems that every man and his dog are vegan, or at least vegetarian, or even 'flexitarian', whatever that means.
I'm not gonna lie, I have had several goes at veganism, with most of my friends doing so and preaching about it on the daily.
However, there has always been that one sacrifice that comes with going vegan that I just can't make.
That's right. It's cheese.
No matter how many documentaries I watch, or lectures I get off my vegan friends, I just can't part with my love of the stuff.
Little did I know that there was such a thing as vegan friendly cheese.
I realise I'm a little late to the party on this one, but as a passionate cheese fanatic, it's never really been a concern of mine.
However, rumour has it that Sainsbury's are releasing something just in time for Christmas that just might change my mind.
Their Christmas advert is certainly making us feel festive...
I''ll admit that I have no immediate plans to jump on the band wagon any time soon, especially in the run up to Christmas, when cheese and wine make up 90% of my diet.
But this was before I heard about Sainsbury's vegan friendly cheese platter.
The festive platter is made by vegan cheese brand Violife, and includes three classic flavours - Blu, Mature, and Cranberry.
Like us, you're probably wondering what on earth it is made of to make it meat and dairy free.
Well, apparently it is coconut oil based and contains vitamin B12. Not forgetting, that it is, of course free from dairy, soya, gluten, lactose and nuts, and preservatives.
Sounds like a health nut's dream TBH.
CEO of the brand said: "We are passionate about creating great tasting food without compromise or cruelty using only plant-based ingredients.
"It is this ethos that has made us so popular with vegans, intolerants, vegetarians and flexitarians.
"Everything we make is 100 percent vegan, non-dairy, non-GMO and allergen free."
At just £5.50, this is an absolute bargain.
Well, I know what I'm getting all my vegan pals for Christmas now. Hell, I might even try it.
