new vegan finds!

i'd like to start a thread of new things you happen across or discover that are vegan.  i browse around in the grocery store quite a bit, reading labels, and sometimes find some pretty interesting and surprising vegan foods!

so anyway, one i found this weekend is....banana babies!  they're from diana's bananas and the dark chocolate ones are vegan.  they're just frozen bananas dipped in chocolate, but..mmmm.  the chocolate is a tiny bit waxy, but all in all, i thought it was a pretty good find.

also, many of marie calendar's fruit pies are vegan as well, which is awesome for a yummy, fatty dessert when i don't feel like making one, haha...

anyone else been finding something cool and yummy?

RAZZLEBERRY!  only the best pie everrrrr...  also, the cherry and i think they have a blackberry cobbler that is too. 

Oh good. I had no idea. Now I can enjoy Marie Calendar pies with my folks. Hurray!

swedish fish and sourpatch kids :) and all of the 100 calorie pack cookies :) lorna doones, chips ahoy, and oreos.

But not Honey Maid cinnamon cookies (do you have those in the States too?). They have... honey in them.

Hmmm...interesting that Marie Calendar pies are vegan.  Not that I'm a big pie eater but I might have to check them out just for that reason.

Pip beat me to the Lorna Doones.  They were a new discovery for me!  Who woulda thought, vegan shortbread!

Also, those rectangular wafer cookies in chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry are often vegan, I find. 

Ya know, these ones:

Yup, it's like Ponycakes says.  It's like Oreo's. 

I don't know how all 7-Eleven's are, but the two around Temple each have a refrigerated section of VEGAN stuff--sandwiches, spring rolls, a couple other things.  Nothing high class, but it's kind of nice/surprising to see a specifically vegan section of food in a convenience store.  I bought the un-turkey sandwich to have something besides salad at the dining hall and it was decent.  :)

Does anyone know if the appetizer breads they give you at Cheesecake Factory are vegan? I would think they have butter in them but you never know

And SWEDISH FISH?! As in my favorite candy ever?! But isn't the red food dye from beetles, or something? Please say no *crosses fingers*

Whatever happened to that Nabsico assorted cookie box?? It had Lorna Doones, and some Wafer Cookies, and some sort of flower shaped cookie, and a couple Oreos that were always the last in the box. I haven't seen it since I was a kid. SAD!

I've never had "regular" Lorna Doone's before, just the 100 calorie pack thingies...but i think they're pretty good. They're a really good tea-dunking cookie.

I don't. BUT, you know those "butter cookies" that come in those tins? They have the different shapes...but they all taste the same-..(like butter cookies in a tin). What if we found out those are vegan?  That'd be pretty ridiculous and gross.

like the fact oreos are vegan

eta: my typing/punctuation is horrible tonight!

Oreos are also gross. The vanillas are ok... not as good as vanilla joejoes

iirc... some of those "dutch cookie" tins are vegan.
