M&S is getting in the mood for summer with its new vegan ‘Avoca-Dough' burger and hot dog buns
Fire up the barbie as high street retailer Marks & Spencer is launching vegan avocado burger and hot dog buns in its Plant Kitchen range.
These super-soft new buns are the first vegan brioche-style rolls to hit the shelves at M&S and retail at £1.15 each for a pack of two.
Using avocado in place of egg, the buns have a slight green hue, whilst coconut oil enriches the buns for that classic brioche texture. Both buns are also a great source of vitamin D and fibre.

Marks & Spencer recently expanded its Plant Kitchen range to include new products that are perfect for summer barbecues such as its Plant Kitchen Chorizo Puppies and The No Beef Burger which are the perfect accompaniment to the new brioche buns.
‘Social media goes mad for all things avo’
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, M&S Bakery Product Developer Kirsty Rowley said: “Avocados are huge – be it avocado on toast, in a margarita or simply as part of a salad – and social media goes mad for all things avo!
“Our new avoca-dough buns are the perfect BBQ accompaniment and complement our amazing Plant Kitchen selection beautifully but go equally well with some of our fantastic meat-based products too.
“The softness of these brioche-style rolls soak-up all the fantastic BBQ juices for ultimate summer bite.”
New vegan ice creams
Earlier this week the retailer announced the launch of its first vegan ice cream flavours as part of its Plant Kitchen range.
Available in two tempting flavours, Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream and Chocolate Ice Cream, the new dairy-free desserts retail at £3 for a 500ml tub.
