Hannah Layland's mybest Summary

Vegan meat alternatives are really growing in popularity and quality as of late, but it has taken me a while to discover the ones that I like. The best method is to try all of them at least once. I haven't found anything completely inedible, and sometimes the cheapest of products turn out to be so much better than you anticipated.

    10 Best Ice Creams UK 2022 | Häagen-Dazs, Mackies and More
    Ice cream is and always has been a hugely popular sweet treat in the UK. Whether you prefer it straight from the tub while watching a film or in an ice cream cone with a flake, it is loved by kids and adults alike. However, with new flavours and brands popping up all the time, it can be hard to know which one to choose, especially when buying online. Eating ice cream at home is always a treat, but consider how you're serving it. Expensive flavours may overpower the dessert you're serving it with so will be better on their own. It's also a lot of fun making up your own personalised ice cream sundae with different toppings and sauces. Whether you prefer Haagen Dazs, Magnum, or Ben & Jerry's, it's all down to personal taste - but we've got a recommended list from online retailers Asda and Tesco to help you choose your favourite!

    With so many classic foods being "veganised", it was only a matter of time until vegan pizza became available in supermarkets - and we're so glad it did!

Whether you're looking for a simple cheese and tomato-topped treat or a gluten-free base with a variety of veggies, we've selected some mouth-watering products by brands like Wicked Kitchen, Pizza Express, Chicago Town, and The White Rabbit Pizza Co.
