The new product is made primarily from soy protein, and is ‘seasoned with sage and spices wrapped in a puff pastry’.
Priced at £1.90, the meatless sausage roll can be eaten hot or cold and is suitable for freezing.
‘Jumping on board’
Popular Instagram account AccidentallyVeganUK posted a picture of the new product captioned: “New in at the co-op, they are finally jumping on board with some new vegan releases, and what a way to do it!”
One user commented: “They’re really nice and taste like classic party buffet sausage rolls.” While another said: “These are so tasty!”
Major vegan range
Back in January this year, the retailer launched a major plant-based range as the demand for vegan products continued to grow.
The range included ready meals, ‘grab-and-go’ options like sandwiches and vegan wine – priced from £2-£8.
Dishes included Mushroom Bolognese (£2.75), Thai-style Broccoli Rice (£2.00), Indian Cauliflower rice (£2.00), and BBQ Jackfruit with Wedges & Slaw (£2.60).
Vegan-friendly wines such as Irresistible Bio Bio Malbec (£7.95), and Really Awesome Wine (£8.00) were also added to stores.
