Being vegan doesn’t mean that you don’t get to eat desserts or snacks anymore. Here are some of our top 5 picks:
CZK –18.90 (Tesco)
Easily our favourite snack, the crispy wafers paired with hazelnut cream makes a great pairing with your coffee or tea. Aside from Puroshop, you can easily find them in any supermarket or minimarkets. There are several other flavours, including chocolate, coconut, and lemon. Each Manner wafer packet consists of 2 wafers, providing a total value of 72 calories per serving (2 pieces). It is important for those allergic to nuts and milk that the product may contain traces of these.
Vegan gummy bears
CZK65 – Puroshop.cz
Did you know that gummies (bears and other shapes too) are not vegan? Gelatine is not vegan; it is a protein derived from animal skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones through boiling. These animal parts are usually obtained from cows or pigs.
Though, it doesn’t mean you can’t eat gummy bears anymore, there are vegan alternatives that “Free From Fellows” have used to produce vegan gummy bears! Free From Fellows specialize in the production of vegan and sugar free gummy bears, and have partnered with candy connoisseurs to ensure the best taste and texture. Not only are they vegan, they are also sugar-free and gluten-free! There are several shapes and flavours you can choose from, and are absolutely delicious!
Currently, only Puro Shop sells this specific brand, but do let us know what other vegan gummy bear brands you can find in the Czech market in the comments.
