Knoops 38% Oat M*lk Chocolate
If you’re after some seriously good hot chocolate, Knoops is the brand to know. Specialising in hot chocolate flakes that vary in cocoa percentage, you can make hot or cold drinks by mixing it with your choice of milk – think iced chocolates and milkshakes. This limited-edition 38% Oat Milk Chocolate is a smooth and creamy vegan alternative which is particularly tasty with hot oat milk. Simply stir it through hot milk or use it with a hot chocolate maker.
Gail's Bakery Plant-Based Dishes
Gail’s Bakery has come up with its first ever range of vegan baked goods. Whether you’re taking part in Veganuary or want to try new lunch options, the roasted spiced cauliflower sandwich features a spiced cauliflower steak, matbucha (a spicy North African red pepper), and lentil hummus on a sesame flatbread. Those with a sweet tooth should try the chocolate and hazelnut bun, which is made with olive oil and topped with caramelized hazelnuts and a crispy cocoa glaze; or a slice of the indulgent sticky date and coconut babka, inspired by a classic sticky toffee pudding.
Rosa's Thai Sauces
Rosa’s Thai has created a range of sauces and condiments so you can enjoy authentic Thai flavours at home. There are five jars to choose from, including a Massaman curry paste made with tamarind, lemongrass and chillies; a chilli oil inspired by Hong Kong’s late-night noodle shops; and red and green Thai curry pastes made with dried chillies for extra heat. The satay sauce is one of our favourites from the range. We love the combination of sweet coconut milk and spiced roast peanuts – enjoy it with chicken skewers in a fresh satay salad.

Non-alcoholic wine French Bloom has launched in the UK. Available to shop exclusively from Selfridges, the brand was co-created by model Constance Jablonski who struggled to find alcohol alternatives that were also low in calories. Produced in the south of France, there are two bottles to choose from – Le Blanc and Le Rosé, both made with organic white grape juice and sparkling spring water. Light and refreshing, French Bloom doesn’t contain any added sugar or sulphites.

Southwest restaurant chain Rockfish has just launched an online fishmonger. The Rockfish team catch fish every morning in the Devon port of Brixham, before filleting it and sending it straight to your door for next-day delivery. Every day from 6am to 12pm, you can shop a selection of fresh seafood, including dover sole, red mullet, monkish, haddock and Torbay squid, as well as frozen items and the catch of the day. There’s also a selection of homemade sauces on offer, including seaweed and lime butter, tartare sauce and ‘oyster drizzle’, as well as tinned seafood. Boxes are delivered in packaging that’s 100% recycled and recyclable – you can even send them back so they can be reused.
Bol Creamy Chick'n Power Soup
Bol’s filling soups come highly recommended by nutritionists, so we were pleased to hear it’s launched a new flavour in honour of Veganuary. This creamy soup contains shredded jackfruit to mimic the flavour and texture of chicken, as well as potato, butternut squash, leeks, and cannellini beans. Containing plenty of fibre and 13g of plant-based protein to help keep you full, it’s a great lunch option whether you’re taking part in Veganuary or looking for a healthy soup that doesn’t contain too much salt.
