UK Online Veg*an Shopping Review Thread

Okay so I'm amassing lots of places where you can get cool vegan stuff online, I thought a big list with reviews would be good - buying things online is sometimes a bit of a risk with a new (especially a small) company - and also promoting good, small, veg*an companies is always lovely.

I'll add more later, but while I remember, I really want to try this place:

http://sweetexpectations.co.uk/ - Sweet Expectations, a vegetarian online sweet store, with a vegan list. Including marshmallows, cream soda bottles, fizzy cola bottles, fizzy cherry cola sweets, ginger ale bottles, macaroons, and sugar free sweets too.

www.abelandcole.co.uk - not exclusively veg*n, but has search options and good labelling for dietary requirements and allergies. For groceries - organic, mostly fruit and vegetables, but also sells soups and veggie burgers and some ready meals etc. I've been using them for about a year and they're pretty awesome. Only non-vegan thing is that when they deliver refrigerated foods (like the soups and such), they use reusable plastic packs full of wool to keep things cool.

www.vegusto.co.uk - I've used their online ordering before and it's good - delivered efficiently, no spoiled food or anything. Their burgers and sausages are completely amazing. They do really good offers sometimes too, which makes the slightly pricey shipping worth it.

(If you only want exclusively veg*n companies in the thread, just let me know and I'll edit the non-veg*n ones out)

Nope all places are good :) As long as they sell veg*an stuff!

I second vegusto - I think their delivery was quick and I like that they text you to tell you the day and rough time of arrival, I think that's really convenient.

Oh and be careful with places like viva - you buy chocolates from them once and they send you leaflets/etc asking for donations/etc forever. I find that annoying. Maybe you can opt out of it somehow though, to be fair to them.

http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/?u=bfe143b84556f0d0fbe5fd354&id=3c15e34c8f £5 off of a £55 vegusto Christmas pack. I ordered a bunch of stuff and put some in the freezer to stop me eating it all at once just recently.

http://www.vegansociety.com/hubpage.aspx?id=678443 is where I get my vitamins from and I've never had any problems with them. It's a difficult website to navigate, I find, but don't let it put you off - they have some really useful books.

http://www.hipohyfryd.co.uk/ you can get these chocolates in lots of places now, but they're really good. Delivery sometimes takes a little while - because the guy makes them by hand - so that's fair enough, but maybe order early if you want them for a gift. Communication is really good though, if you email you always get a helpful response, and I've never had any problems.
