From chocolate to chutney, we take our pick of the new vegan goodies, gifts and stocking fillers to look out for this Christmas
Rubies in the Rubble Relish Gift Set
This gift set from sustainable condiment maker Rubies in the Rubble features three of its bestselling relishes: Chilli Onion, Classic Apple and Pear & Fig. As well as being suitable for vegans, all three variants are gluten-free, nut-free and made from fruit and veg that would have otherwise gone to waste. According to the brand, it is the “perfect stocking filler for any foodie or eco-warrior friends”, and is available on Amazon, Farmdrop, Milk & More and Rubies’ online store (rsp: £12).
Doisy & Dam
Vegan chocolatier Doisy & Dam has launched its first festive range into Ocado, Holland & Barrett, Boots, WH Smith Travel and Whole Foods. It features three products: dark chocolate orange Jingle Ballers (rsp: £2), dark chocolate Truffles (rsp: £5) and a Christmas Mix selection box (rsp: £10), which contains 10 packs of treats from the brand’s range including Ballers, Buttons and D&D’s.
Jacksons of Yorkshire Festive Bloomer
As with the rest of its range, Jacksons’ Festive Bloomer is free from dairy, palm oil and soya. The white sage & onion bread, which the brand says is “perfect for the ultimate Christmas sandwich”, launches exclusively into Waitrose in November (rsp: £1.39/400g).
Nomo Caramel Choc Drops
Made from creamy vegan chocolate and filled with smooth, gooey caramel, Nomo’s new dairy-free treats are also made without nuts and gluten. They are available from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Amazon and the brand’s online store (rsp: £5).
Mindful Bites Cantucci Biscotti
Premium plant-based brand Mindful Bites is expanding its range of festive treats with two cantucci biscotti. The traditional Italian biscuits will go on sale in M&S, Ocado, Whole Foods and Selfridges in Almond and Chocolate variants. They will be joined by a new organic version of the brand’s Veganettone, which launched last Christmas.
Iced biscuit delivery service Biscuiteers will offer vegan alternatives for the first time this Christmas. The brand’s Happy Christmas Luxe Tin (rsp: £45) and letterbox biscuits (rsp: £25) in penguin, Christmas pudding and snowglobe designs (pictured) will all be available with a plant-based recipe.
A range of festive chocolate from vegan confectioner Mummy Meagz will be available exclusively from Holland & Barrett this Christmas.
