UK supermarket giant ASDA have announced a festive range especially for vegans. The launch will include a Chestnut Roast, Vegan Chocolate Caramel Pots, a Vegan Pâté, and a vegan cheese board which will retail at £5.
The vegan cheese board will include a mature cheddar alternative, a wensleydale and cranberry alternative, and a garlic and chive alternative. It will be available to purchase from ASDA stores from 22nd November,
ASDA’s mature cheddar alternative won the Gold award in the Milk Alternatives catergory at the Free From Awards 2018. Product Development Manager James Waters said: “The award means a lot and it’s a great testament to the quality of our cheese. Judges commented on it being really great when melted, a great free-from ingredient, and useful for when kids are around. They said that when melted in or on a dish no child would even notice that it was different, which is fantastic to hear.”
