Whoohoo vegan quark!

vegan quark

Producer of plant-based dairy products Alpro recently introduced another new product – vegan quark! Although officially called ‘plant-based alternative to quark’ in order not to get sued by evil dairy corporations. They named it Alpro Go On and it’s based on soy. Ideal for yummy desserts or kwarktaart!

In Amsterdam find it at Albert Heijn and Jumbo supermarkets.

Veganz products

At the healthfood section, AH Gelderlandplein

With rumours going back to 2013 there’s still no Veganz in Amsterdam! You know the all vegan supermarket one can find in Berlin and other places in Germany. And nowadays even in Czech Republic and Austria. But a month ago Veganz announced it will have a few of its own products (16 to be precise) in some Albert Heijn supermarkets in the Netherlands. In Amsterdam you can find it at the Albert Heijn at Gelderlandplein (Buitenveldert) and Osdorpplein (Osdorp). Disappointment: not all of the 16 products are being sold – at Gelderlandplein none of their chocolate! Hopefully the assortment will improve eventually.

Is it a test for a possible upcoming store? We’ll keep you updated.

In love with the cocooo

Little did I know, but kokosbrood turns out to be a Dutch invention! Translated as ‘coconutbread’, it’s something to put ON TOP OF bread. It usually contains gelatin or sometimes honey or even smashed insects, but now there’s also a vegan version! 🎉 If you’re Dutch you probably ate this as a child so time to get nostalgic.

If you’re never had this before and wonder what the fuck it is. It’s basically grated coconut with starch and heaps of sugar. Packed in slices the same size as a slice of bread.

So the main kokosbrood producer Theunisse created a vegan one, look out for the package which says ‘biologisch glutenvrij’ (organic & glutenfree). At the moment only available at Deen supermarkets, though not all of them. All Amsterdam locations have them except the one at Rijnstraat and the one at Lange Vonder.

Ancient vegan delicousness

 

vegan neapolitaner

Apparently a big deal in Austria, these cookies exist for over a hundred years and have been vegan since the beginning. Yes that’s before the word ‘vegan’ existed! So Manner Neapolitaner wafers are tiny wafers filled with a hazelnut-chocolate cream filling. Neapolitan refers to stuff from Napoli, as the hazelnuts used apparently are from there. Which makes for a pretty delicious result! Also pretty inexpensive, just €1,20 for a package, available at Sterk nightshop.
