Affordable supermarket chain Aldi has launched its own-brand vegan biscuit spread, according to Vegan Food UK.
Vegan Food UK is an online organization sharing vegan food news, reviews, vlogs, and more. It operates across multiple social media platforms, with a Facebook group, Facebook page, YouTube channel, and Instagram account.
‘Couldn’t tell the difference’
Speaking about the product on Instagram, the organization said: “First reviews back of this are that you couldn’t tell the difference between this and Biscoff spread.
“We hear it’s £1.79 but just looking for confirmation. The ingredients on the back [read] ‘soya free’ but the allergen warning states ‘may contain egg and soya’.”
Last month, Lotus Biscoff added cream sandwich biscuits to its range of accidentally vegan treats.
The biscuits are currently available in Tesco stores across the UK, retailing at £1.39 for a pack of 15. They are also available online.
Just like Aldi’s biscuit spread, the product carries an allergen warning due to the manufacturing method, which means there is a risk of cross-contamination, and they may contain eggs or milk.
According to The Sun, Lotus Bakeries, the manufacturer of the biscuits, said they will launch in other supermarkets, but no dates are known yet.
