M&S has launched the UK's first supermarket vegan cheese twists, and they're set to be a total game-changer!


M&S has made vegan cheese history this week by launching its brand-new Plant Kitchen item – Cheese Flavour Twists.

Sharing an image of the new product on Instagram, the upmarket retailer wrote: “This is not just any launch … this is a FIRST ON THE HIGH STREET LAUNCH!!

“This week we’ve launched an EPIC vegan version of our famous Cheese Twists – NEW Plant Kitchen Cheese Flavour Twists made with flaky puff pastry and vegan cheese flavouring, they’re moreish, delicious … and if you ask us you can’t taste the difference”.

And our verdict is in… they’re delicious!

The vegan Cheese Flavour Twists are available now at £1.50 for a box, ideal for sharing (or eating all to yourself).

Cheesy Veganuary launches

But this isn’t the only vegan cheese product launch this Veganuary. Oh no, there are plenty more where that came from!

This week the Bel Group launched a vegan Babybel made from coconut oil which features a green twist on the iconic red wax casing.

The mini vegan cheeses are the perfect snack, lunchbox staple or low-budget vegan cheeseboard addition for people of all ages – whether you’re 5 or 75.

They are currently retailing at £1.50 for a pack of 5 at Sainsbury’s, but this will go up to £2 RRP so get there fast!

But the Bel Group hasn’t stopped there. It also launched a vegan version of its fan-favourite Garlic & Herbs Boursin cheese – using sunflower oil and featuring an “intense garlic, fragrant parsley and chive” flavour.

Vegan Boursin is available at Sainsbury’s for £3 per tub and will definitely be a 2022 plant-based picnic and cheeseboard staple.

Moreover, cream cheese kingpin Philadelphia has released a dairy-free version of their original spread, made with almonds and oats instead of cows milk.

It is available exclusively at Tesco and retails at £2.50 for a 150g tub.
