High street chain Carluccio’s is expanding its vegan offering with two new pastries – as well as a range of dairy-free milks.

The Italian eatery is launching its Croissant Vegano and Saccottini al Cioccolato on August 14.

The croissant will cost £1 on takeaway orders until August 21, when the price will go up to £1.50. The Saccottini al Cioccolato – the Italian relative of the Pain au chocolat – costs £2.40.

Vegan breakfast

“Breakfast just got sweeter nationwide with Carluccio’s new plant-based sourdough croissants that will not only be welcomed by vegans but anyone looking to enjoy the flakiest of pastries with their morning coffee,” a spokesperson said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“No need to sacrifice on taste as you can still enjoy that same cloud-like, flaky and buttery taste with these completely plant-based alternatives free from eggs, butter and milk. 

“These new plant-based croissants from Carluccio’s are a welcome addition to a menu that already features a selection of new vegan dishes.  New milk alternatives – including soy, coconut and oat milk – will also be available.”
