Great source to stock up on vegan products
Posted on 11 / 30 / 2010
We've been shopping at the Vegan's choice grocery for years and love it.
Just a bit of an update as things have changed a bit over the last year.
The shop stocks mostly frozen foods, some of them are home made things such as soy nuggets, spring rolls, buns etc from the 'Green Gourmet' restaurant next door.
There are also lots of 'externally' made frozen products including tofu, mock meat / seafood products, burgers and 'Funky pies'.
Until a year ago all frozen products were strictly vegan, however now some of the products contain dairy ingredients. The owner has put all the vegetarian (but non vegan products) into one area of the freezer and there is a sign on the freezer stating 'vegetarian only - not vegan'. But I have started to check the labels of every product every time I am buying it now, to make sure I don't buy something non vegan. And only last week I realized that the 'Lamyong' brand 'Crispy soy slices' now suddenly contain whey powder although they previously didn't (and the front of the packet still claims it is a 'vegan' product...)
The owner is very happy to get feed back about the products as he really wants to cater well for vegans.
There is also a fridge with yummy vegan cheeses, vegan cream cheeses and vegan sour cream (which is always sold out as soon as it appears, because it's so nice).
The shop also sells cooking sauces, dried noodles and other long life pantry items including some sweet things such as chocolate/ chocolate bars/ lollies / waffle cones.
The Vegan's choice is a treasure chest for anybody with a sweet tooth. There are several flavours of home made tofu ice cream available, and they are all extremely yummy.
There is now also an ever increasing range of 'externally' made vegan tarts / cakes / muffins / brownies. They are all soooooo delicious and many of them are even raw food, how amazing!
The 'Greenfields' Burger Bar section that opened inside the Vegan's Choice grocery about a year ago has shut down again a while ago so there is no more hot food available.
