Upsell upsell upsell - Edit

This place is completely overwhelming – I had three different people tell me it was buy one get the second thing half price. I just want to buy one thing thanks – I feel like I'm being punished by doing so. Quorn and tofu selections are better in the big Sainsbury's or the Asian Supermarkets which is a shame. So many things are on special offer it feels like it is a con. Very american, dated branding, frustrating.

Pros: Interesting hard to find ingredients

Cons: Constant upselling, Dated aggressive branding, Lots of 'con food'

Good for imitation products - Edit

Fairly standard Holland and Barrett store, with a mix of groceries and dietary supplements. For vegans, there is a good selection of snack bars, especially energy bars, many of which are raw, and also vegan burgers, sausages, cheeses and ice-cream. The whole chain frequently has good offers such as "buy one get one for a penny," and there are also good deals for those with loyalty cards.

Pros: location

Cons: not fully vegan
