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?

some one said something about choxie a while back. I found a dark chocolate kind that doesnt have dairy. yummmyyyyy. Next time i'm digging to see if i can find more.

these might have been mentioned on here before but today at whole foods i saw vegan raspberry jello-style mixes for only like 1.50, and in the refrigerated section they have 4 packs of vegan gelatin cups in 3 different flavors and they were around 3 dollars ish.  i like that they only gelatin style cups they sell are the vegan kind!

I think, if i remember right, kool-aid jello is vegan. I think. I just remember it not having gelatin.

wow - i just looked it up and you're right.  that's really cool.  (i'm thinking the ones at whole foods are more natural with less artificial stuff, but thats still good to know about the kool aid ones)

tjs has a new dark chocolate - i forgot what its called but its in a box with a clear top and it looks like a mini ice cube tray of dark chocolate & it's labeled vegan.  they also have new a bbq version of their chickn strips.  (&they have a tjs brand italian style sausage but its got eggs in it)

whole foods has a box of 'after dinner mints' called Divine that sounds like peppermint patties from the description but no pic on the box.

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:

Really!? I had one at school and I thought they weren't vegan, I should have looked at the ingredients.

Oreos, fritos, and pringles! They seem to be kind of well-known, but...

I also found vegan canned Peking Duck at my local asian market ??? It was odd. I bought it but I'm afraid to try it.

Pringles aren't vegan, just about every flavor I've seen as whey or some type of milk product, besides P&G tests on animals!

Natural Mint Cocoa mix at Trader Joe's! Yeay! For those that love the combination of mint & chocolate!  :)>>>

eta: it's not really minty enough for me, so I may add a candy cane in there to mint it up some more  :D

i tried the sweet chili lime doritos and theyre pretty delicious... especially if you havent had a dorito in awhile - they almost have a cheesy taste and theyre definitely the dorito orange color.  ive only seen them in the big bag size so if you cannot be trusted to be alone with them, take them somewhere to share (which is what i did)

kashi has a deal right now where you can sign up for a free entree coupon.. i signed up but never got the coupon email in my inbox.  i read that the polenta one is really good, i think thats the morrocan one - ?  anyway, it's worth signing up for if they ever get the bugs worked out.
