Merry Vegan Christmas

There are some rather delicious food & drink gifts to buy for your vegan friends this Christmas, so #TeamCoco has put together a list of three favourites that even non-vegans will love. You’re welcome!

Obviously no Christmas food list is complete without cheese and pickle, yet vegan cheese can be so unbelievably tricky to buy. Check out this rather fabulous vegan cheese and pickle hamper.

Branston x La Fauxmagerie. Priced at £25, available from https://lafauxmagerie.com

Limited Edition taster hampers are available until the end of December, and contain Farmhouse by Kinda Co. & Branston Small Chunk Pickle – a semi hard cheddar style cheese made from cashew nuts, with a strong cheddar profile and sweet buttery notes. Papa Rica by I Am Not Ok and Branston Original Pickle – a smooth, smoky cashew cheese with a bold hit of paprika. Muenster by The Arty Vegan and Branston Smooth Pickle – a perfect smoky vegan cheese to spread on crispbreads.

Don’t we all look forward to a festive tipple at Christmas, and what better than creamy, nutty, caramel vegan cocktail.
