Sainsbury’s Launch Vegan Marshmallows And Whipped Cream
Winter evenings mean just one thing, if we’re being very reductive: Hot chocolates, lots of marshmallows and mounds of whipped cream.
But now you can enjoy your festive-film-inspired treats in front of your Netflix on-screen fire guilt-free thanks to Sainsbury’s who’ve introduced a vegan range of made-for-sleepover snacks.
Perfect for animal lovers, environmentalists and those on a dairy-free diet, these ultimate hot chocolate ingredients are pretty much guaranteed to excuse you from never leaving the house in the evenings again.
Made by Freedom foods, these cute little marshmallows are no flump, priced at just £2 for a 75g bag.
Adorned by an adorable critter, in the name of stopping damaging mass animal produce, Freedom marshmallows come in traditional pink and white colours.
They are gelatine, egg, dairy and gluten free, and are free from artificial flavours and colours.
And what would marshmallows be without the whipped cream? One hot, sticky mess, that’s where.
So Sainbury’s have that covered too.
Hopla soy whipped cream is a stalwart in their plant-based products, priced at just £2.20, so you can be kind to your pockets and the cows.
Not one to miss a trick, the alcohol industry is getting involved too, and Baileys has just launched a dairy free and gluten free version of their famed Irish cream liqueur.
Baileys Almande is – you guessed it – actually made out of almond milk, and it also contains almond essence, cane sugar, purified water and real vanilla.
Who knew plant-based could taste this delicious? It’s not just the animals you’ll be helping either.
For the past two decades, the rate of global food production has increased faster than the rate of global population growth and we are currently growing enough food to feed 10 billion people.
Yet hunger is caused by poverty and inequality, rather than scarcity, and that means 800 million men, women and children are starving on Earth, according to World Hunger.
‘If we would use the feed or the amount of crops we use to feed animals to feed people we could eliminate hunger’, Dr Marco Springmann, Lead Researcher at the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food, tells UNILAD.
Dr Springmann added:
It’s clear that if everyone had a Western diet, we couldn’t exist and the world would be eaten up.
You can learn more about the meat industry in the UNILAD investigation, ‘Meat The End’. Full disclosure: As a meat eater myself, the images of animal cruelty are really hard to swallow.
The question of which we value more remains: the luxury of dietary preferences, or the welfare of millions of animals and the potential to end world hunger?
And with supermarkets offering tasty deliciousness like vegan marshmallows, how can we resist a kinder palate?
