Our bestsellers in April 2019 were no surprise in many ways!
Vegan sausage and beans in a can have been a popular product with our customers. Right back to when Vool first stuck some products on a table back in November 2017. Beans are always a winner. The addition of V Bites sausages means you can’t go wrong. We actually sold out of these but new supplies are on their way! In the meanwhile why don’t you try beans and vegan burgers in a can?
Whity in a tub has been popular for a while now. It’s handy to stick in your desk drawer or bag. Then use as a vegan take on Coffee Mate. Maybe the approach of the holiday season has pushed this companion product to the fore? The coffee whitener (but also great in tea) now comes in handy 3g packets. These are ideal if you’re travelling and have to limit the liquids you can pack.
And this one is the least surprising of the lot. The Almond Bliss Vego White bar has been so popular in the short period since its release. The combination of almonds and white chocolate have been a winner in the Vego White. If you’ve tried and liked the combination then why don’t you also try the Vegan Hero bar?
So there you have it; bestsellers in April 2019. What vegan goodies did you enjoy in April?
Drumstick Choos are Drumstick lollies but without the stick. It also turns out they are suitable for vegans. So do they bring childhood memories flooding back? Or do they just taste good? We had to open a packet…
It’s been years since a Drumstick passed my lips. The wrapping that the lollies came in wasn’t exactly designed for a thorough examination of the ingredients. In fact these nearly didn’t make it onto our stock list. despite hearing rumours that they vegan the box was a bit uninformative.
Suitable for vegans?
Even on the individual bags it states ‘suitable for vegetarians’ on the front, but ‘suitable for vegetarians and vegans on the back’. But let’s not dwell too long on this and rejoice that they are suitable for vegans – and the packet says this at least once!
Now in 5 flavours
It turns out that Drumstick Choos come in 5 double flavours; original raspberry and milk, strawberry and cream, apple and cherry, peaches and cream, and strawberry and banana. That the original flavour was a creamy raspberry was a bit of a revelation. I’d never given much though to the flavour and doubt I would have been able to pin it down to raspberry.
The wrappers are colour coded to help you select the flavour you want. But the packet doesn’t show you what colour the wrappers are. It just tells your the flavours and shows the unwrapped sweets. This meant that my attempt to use the colour coding was more challenging that I anticipated. I assumed that the red and yellow wrapper would be strawberry and banana. However it turns out that these were the colours of the original drumstick wrapper so they represent raspberry and milk. Strawberry and banana are wrapped in a slightly paler yellow and pink.
The colours can look quite similar. So if you’re picky about getting peaches and cream rather than strawberries and cream select your chew in bright light.
Quite frankly after extensive testing I would be happy to eat any of them. You can taste the different flavours well enough but they still all have a tang of the original flavour. Should you need further help I have lined up the wrappers with the flavours below. You’re welcome.
The Vool verdict:
A delicious taste of days gone by at a bargain price. (and other goodies) in our online shop now.
