    I love that Oreos are vegan. My favorite “ninja vegan” item remain bacon bits. So weird!

      Bacon bits are vegan? No way!

      1. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

        Yep – Heather (Better With Veggies) shared that gem with me. 🙂

    Wow i had no idea that Oreo’s were vegan !is it only the ones there that are vegan and the ones here in Australia are not? so interesting!

    I don’t know that their vegan state will make me entertain the notions of eating Oreos anytime soon. Life’s too short to eat Oreos I think. I always enjoy your snack review posts, it’s so interesting to see what the other half eats. But how were the mini caramel cups?

    I’m pretty certain that the homebrand version of Toblerone is made by Frey, here in Switzerland, who sell their version in the Swiss government-owned Migros supermarkets here. The shape is exactly the same!

    I’m curious as to what ingredient in chocolate is not vegan, besides the milk. (I mean in this particular chocolate, obviously the honey is not vegan.) But in general. I ask because even though I try to be sensitive about these things, as a non-picky, non-special-diet, non-allergic (except for walnuts, and even those won’t send me to the hospital, it’s just unpleasant) eater, I’m often unaware of the nuances.

    Oh Hannah, I love your writing. (I was going to write I love you, but thought that would come across quite badly in a blog comment. Writing this in brackets may have the same effect though. I’m leaving it anyway.)

    I am also very much not bored by the knowledge that somewhere out there, there is a dairy-free but not vegan Toblerone equivalent, even if it does taste mostly of sugar.

    Just crush up the Oreos into a paste and brush away. That should be abrasive enough, right?

    SDM is evil like that.. actually most grocery stores are. I have found that a much better strategy to limit buying random things is to send Rob shopping… although last time I sent him for sauerkraut and tofu, he came back with some Camino chocolate, too. We are not immune. 😉

  9. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe I’m glad I’m not the only one that forgets the one essential item that I ventured out to get! Nice score there Ms Australia! 😀

    Ahem.. I wonder what that Australian princess brings home when she pops out for a book, or some shoes, or dishwasher tabs.. .? Vegan Oreos? They would go down in this house. Xx

    I was waiting for you to leave behind a crystal slipper in Shoppers Drug Mart as the clock chimed 🙂

    Terrible the things that can waylay you when you are just after toothpaste – and you probably needed it after all that sweetness 🙂 you could have sent me the chocolate caramel cups – I think I would prefer them to peanut butter cups 🙂

  12. hungryandfrozen

    Oh honey! Our Australian hero deserves far better snacks than that. Although the not-quite-Toblerone did make me laugh with its sneaky suggestive shape.

    Let’s make a pact, whoever works out how to sleep properly first, tells the other their secret immediately?

  13. Yasmeen @ Wandering Spice

    I love that Toblerone knockoff – so shameless, yet so legal. I do appreciate a good loophole.

    Uncertainty about the future, eh? We could talk for days about that, my dear.

  14. Allysia

    Allysia approves of writing in third person. Also it looks like you bought the opposite of toothpaste, ha ha! 🙂

  15. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    And that’s what you get for getting distracted 😉 When will we ever learn that (most) knock-offs simple cannot be trusted? Doesn’t matter how many I am fooled by, i will always feel the need to try them all!

  16. Emma

    Oh no, the Unknown? I hope things are still looking up for you over there Toronto-way. I crossed into Canada today (just to buy gasoline)….. I’m getting closer!

  17. Ashley

    Haha, I almost hate going to the supermarket, because my basket will always be doubled up with extra goodies that I see just while looking aorund. terrible!

    Did you ever get your toothpaste? 😮

  18. Sig @ Melbourne Maharani

    Oreos are vegan?? You learn something new every day….

    Hoping the sleeping/anxiety dilemma is getting better – like I’ve learnt in my Calmbirth classes. BREATHEEEEEEEE…….

    Will let you know how well that goes in actual labour 😛

  19. msihua

    Does this princess also throw orange chocolates at nice people? 😛

  20. Silvia

    Oh that chocolate bar looks so much like this one:

    I bet it’s the same….
    And now we know why Chocolat Frey is the biggest chocolate producer in Switzerland… even Canadian drug marts are selling their chocolate!
