Healthy eats, naughty-but-nice treats, and a booze-free beverage: take a look at some of the most exciting recent vegan product launches.

It feels a bit like the calm before the storm this time of year.

The supermarket shelves may be filled with our favourite festive foods, but we just know that the real vegan food party will start come Veganuary when we vegans will be overwhelmed by all the new products to try.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t find something new and exciting to taste.

Take a look through just some of the recent vegan product launches to help you finish 2021 with something delicious!
