UK retailer Boots is launching 100% vegan versions of the nation's four favourite sandwiches for Veganuary 2021.
Boots is arguably home to one of the best meal deals in the UK. Whilst the pharmacy chain has had decent vegan options for several years now, Boots is launching a brand new limited edition range of vegan sandwiches for Veganuary 2021.
The new range is entitled ‘Vegan Nation’s Favourites’ and will feature four of the UK’s most popular sandwiches – but 100% plant-based.
The plant-based versions of the nation’s favourite sandwiches are:
- No Tuna & Sweetcorn — chickpeas and soy protein with sweetcorn, vegan mayo and lemon juice, on malted bread.
- No Cheese & Onion — smoky vegan cheese with onions and mustard, on oatmeal bread.
- No Chicken Salad — seasoned wheat gluten and soy pieces with vegan mayo, lemon juice, lettuce, and tomato, on malted bread.
- No Duck & Hoisin — seasoned wheat gluten and soy pieces with hoisin sauce, cucumber, lettuce, and spring onion, in a wheat wrap.

Vegan options at Boots
Boots already have a decent range of vegan options. Last Veganuary, the retailer launched a vegan southern-fried chicken wrap and a vegan cheese and chutney sandwich.
Moreover, last Christmas Boots released two vegan festive sandwiches including a vegan salmon and cream cheese, and a vegan Christmas feast. This festive season, Boots launched a vegan no-turkey feast with flavoured soya protein pieces, cranberry chutney, sage & onion stuffing, spinach, red cabbage and fried onions. In a taste test of Christmas sandwiches across several retailers, The Mirror scored Boots’ vegan offering a 9/10.
With 2021 likely to bring more people back into their offices and in need of on-the-go lunch options, Boots seems like the perfect place to visit for a vegan sarnie.
The new limited-edition sandwiches will be available from the 4th January priced at £3, or £3.39 as part of the Boots meal deal.
