One of my favorite things about traveling is finding new vegan stuff in local grocery stores. Denmark has a very limited selection, so it’s a real treat going somewhere else and discovering something new. Although I trick to stick to non-processed foods, my appetite for new vegan speciality products is insatiable!
Germany is great for new finds. I really discovered this living in Berlin and am now aware the entire country has lots of options for vegans. Flensburg, Germany is about an hour away from my house and I often make the pilgrimage there to stock up on my favorites.
I love the cheeses from “SimplyV”. Their sliced cheese has a wonderful consistency and taste. In addition, their Parmesan cheese is indistinguishable from the real thing and tastes great on pasta.
The “Fantastic Foods” white crisp chocolate is a creamy, fully-flavored treat that I usually end up eating in one sitting. It has that creamy white chocolate taste without that watery aftertaste found in many vegan chocolates.
The supermarket chain REWE makes their own house brand vegan products and I love their bolognese sauce! When I first tried it I was sure I had picked up the wrong jar by mistake; the chunks of soy where very meat-like. I like having a few of these around as they make for an easy dinner.
REWE also has a vegan Nutella, which I love. Pretty much a no-brainer if you love chocolate, hazelnut spreads as much as I do.
Interestingly, I found some great pre-packaged tortellini in the drugstore chain DM. It was a bit weird finding such a gem in a drugstore but hey, I’m not complaining! They also sell lots of vegan beauty products if you’re into that.
No trip to Germany is complete without schnitzel. “VegaFit” makes very tasty and nicely-textured schnitzel and fish fingers. I don’t really remember what meat and fish taste like but they would probably pale in comparison to these.
Stay vegan and stay tuned
