There is an egg-citing new treat coming to independent vegan sweet company Conscious Candy Co as they get set to launch the UK's first vegan fried egg sweets
There is an egg-citing new treat coming to independent vegan sweet company Conscious Candy Co…
As featured in our ‘6 Independent Vegan Businesses to Support During Lockdown’ article, Conscious Candy Company deliver over 80 varieties of 100% vegan sweets to your door – a saviour during lockdown. But from the 8th May they will be offering something never seen before in the UK: vegan fried eggs!
When asked why they set out on the arduous journey of perfecting the vegan fried egg, this was their response: “It’s a classic sweet that needed ‘veganising’! We asked our customers what sweet they missed most and had an overwhelming request for a vegan fried egg.
“It was a hard task, and getting the consistency and flavour right took a long time but we’re super happy with the result and most people have said it tastes better than the gelatine eggs they remember!”
The verdict: These squidgy beauties incite the nostalgia of picking out the sought-after fried eggs of the Haribo share bag while my friends weren’t looking. Featuring a vanilla egg-white and an orange yolk, they provide a pillowy mouthful with a sweet and slightly tangy taste. What’s more, they’re palm oil-free! As Conscious Candy Co warned me, “you won’t be able to stop!”
You can purchase these egg-ceptional sweets from the 8th May on the Conscious Candy website. As an extra treat, the first 50 orders will receive a free iced biscuit created by Gardners Cookies in their parcel!
