Navigating the festive season can be a little tricky if you're vegan or trying to cut down on dairy. Standard custard, brandy butter, and eggnog are all out. So it's awesome to hear that Asda has become the first UK supermarket to introduce vegan mince pies.
Better still - they're not being sold at a premium price: A box of six vegan mince pies costs just 89p, or you can buy two boxes (containing 12 pies in total) for £1.50.
"This festive season, Asda is proud to announce we now offer mince pies that are suitable for vegans and have been accredited by the Vegan Society," Asda's Bakery Product Developer Ciara Loker says. "At Asda, we are committed to innovation and developing the best quality products that can be enjoyed by everyone."
