    I felt putting vegan in the main title was in some ways alienating it.
    Flatbread v or ve seemed a better option. Just curios what people here thought.

    Sometimes it’s nice that something is made obviously plant based, tbh. Saves rummaging through everything in the list and still having to ask a waiter...

    I have to ask for the' allergy menu, we did at a new eatery Saturday night and was given the allergy free menu and a Vegan menu too, so it is popula/ Curry was on the allergy free menu, but when we double checked I couldn't eat it !! so frustrating, It's a brand new pub, 2 months old, Marstons pubs, also, a blog called Vegan Womble.

    This quote is confusing ;
    Quotes 'It's unusual to find a pub chain where you don't have to ask for their allergens information before ordering vegan food' '
    We have to congratulate Marston’s on introducing a vegan menu that is different to most that we come across. Not only that, but their partnership with Moving Mountains is an incredibly strong move. I only wish we could buy those burgers in our supermarkets because it was wow in a bun.
    What I will say is the menu is slightly confusing. They have placed vegan marks for some of the meals but all are suitable for vegans. I think there might be a graphic designer somewhere who went a bit icon happy '

    Like @Mel dCP, says, it makes it easier to find it. A percentage of the restaurants in the US will label items, V, Vegan, vegan optional etc. It will vary area to area. I don't think I have ever heard it being a detriment, I think it's pretty accepted and considered a plus. There is a huge increase of vegans and vegetarians here, plus a lot of people that eat vegan/vege just because they want to some of the time .

    This is really good with veggies or pasta. Low carb too!

    I’m not sure the name “Nutcheese” would sell very well here in the U.K... :hilarious:

    Parmela -It’s not a cheap item even when you find it in stores. Lucky Vitamins online is where I get it from now.. They make cheeses too that some people really love, smaller company that started expanding a few years ago from southern California area.

    New one I found - it may have been in Waitrose - not cheap . Move Over Meat was the brand and I tried the Revolution burgers and they actually tasted like meat - low carb.
    BTW I wouldn't touch most vegan cheese as it is just carbs and oil and so little protein.
    I also like Vivera products - stir fry the shwarma with stir fry veg- delish.

    I just had these! I decided to dive in and order off of Amazon and hope I wasn’t wasting money. Yummy! The noodles had a great “al dente” texture. While they don’t have quite as much flavor as regular pasta (does that really have much flavor anyway?), if you like a tasty sauce you will not notice the difference. I tested 2 hours after eating. I didn’t test before I ate, but I was 99 (5.4) at 2 hours so I feel comfortable with the carb count on the box. I don’t know what countries you can get them in...

    They were very good. I’m kind of used to either springy or mushy texture when I try to recreate pasta, but the texture was perfect. I made a chunky pesto with pine nuts and a two huge handfuls of basil from the garden, blistered a large handful of cherry tomatoes and...ate :)

    By the way, I’m awaiting delivery of NutCheese (LOL) from vegan essentials. That’s an interesting (and random) website. So, thank you for posting that!

    Thank You!!! I posted the picture of Nutcheese, but WuTwo posted the link to Vegan Essentials. I do order off and on from them as they carry some stuff that is harder to get.

    I don't know how anyone charges for shipping to where you live, since we moved I always get charged shipping now. I am in the states but on an island. But here are some ideas.

    I get misc food items from the list below, possible sources of US brands

    Lucky Vitamins, it will vary by weight. They carry the most variety it seems, but their rewards program isn't that great and be careful of buying something "autoship" most expensive on shipping for me,
    Vitacost, which is better because it has a flat rate shipping charge for non continental US, UK I don't know?
    iherb, which doesn't carry as much food but adjusts the charges by weight and you get shipping charges lowered if you are buying supplements which net them more of a profit so they discount the shipping. Plus with iherb if you have an account you get 5-10% back on most purchases towards your next purchase. There again,this could be a US thing.
    Amazon, who has the biggest range, but not always has everything and not always the cheapest.
