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?

The other day i was looking around the frozen food section (as i often do in hopes that more people will make vegan food)
And actually found something new!
Healthy choice makes all natural entrees now (with no preservatives!)
I found one vegan one, Sweet Asian Potstickers. It looks good, havent tried it yet.
They have some vegetarian ones also (but be careful, i did see one or 2 with gelatin)
And it was like half the price of Amys meals so. yay!

OOOh.....I'll look for that Healthy Choice meal when I'm at the store tonight.
For lunch I had the Kashi Ranchero Beans...and I loved it.  I'm gonna get all the other safe Kashi ones tonight too.

Nature Valley Granola bars, at least some of the variety is Vegan, as is Annies bunny bites, individual packages of fruit chews. They use pectin, which is fruit derrived.  We also love Dr Oetker organic pudding mix, which is also Gluten free as well as Vegan, we have the choc and vanilla.

I added a couple of these reviews to the "meatless" thread, and as far as I can tell, the Asian potstickers entree is the only vegan one (out of all of their products).

Here's a link to that thread of reviews, if anyone is interested in looking/adding some (I have added all the Kashi meals): http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=24055.0

I've seen the cakes at Woodman's last time I was there, haven't tried them, they aren't GF, but sounds good.

I wish Amy's would make their apple pie vegan....doesn't make sense to me that they can come up with 2 vegan cakes and not one vegan pie!  Seems like a pie would have been simple for them to do? :'(

underSARAH, I had those Healthy Choice Asian Potstickers today for lunch and they were so good....a little sweet, but thats ok.....thanks for telling me about them....I even emailed Healthy Choice to thank them and asked them to make more vegan items....

As for apple pie, Marie Callender's apple pie is vegan and its amazing.

i heard that regular original flavor skittles are vegan now too - go get em undersarah & cakes!  (make sure to read the label in case theres still some of the older packages floating around..)

eta: i just got back from the store and saw it with my own eyes!  the first bag i saw was a larger/older package and still had gelatin, but the snack size in the checkout line was vegan and said "gelatin-free & gluten-free" right under the ingredient list.  so make sure to read the label!

at aldi they have vegan jell-o style cups in assorted flavors, some have fruit in them & they have carageenan instead of gelatin.  theyre cheap too, between 1.00 and 1.60 each or so.

theres also a line of asian foods, noodle bowls, noodle mixes, etc. and about half of them are vegan.  they're even labeled 'vegan' at the end of the ingredient list.

they're buttery spread is vegan too, full of hydrogenation, but vegan.  plus, it is insanely cheap at 1.80 for 3 lbs!

i found some new items at tj's today.  they have their own line of vegan jell-o cups, almond windmill cookies, maple cookies, and a chick'n thing that is like a chicken breast stuffed with a mexican style filling.. black beans, veggies & spices. 

i decided to buy a box of those chocolate filled square cereal.. they taste just like those chocolate creme wafers.. those rectangular things with the honeycomb pattern.  the cereal comes in strawberry flavor too so im assuming they taste like their creme wafer counterparts, too.  not bad, i think they'd be good baked into some cereal/cookie/brownie bar maybe..

I HAVE THOSE!!! The TJ's chocolatey cereal things. They taste a teensy bit like Nutella if you concentrate really hard while you're eating them. I wish I had gotten strawberry too :( Now I have to wait a month and a half.

Are those chikn strips and beef strips still there? I asked my mommy if she could hook me up and she said they were gone.
