Budget supermarket chain Aldi has launched a vegan biscuit spread that is cheaper yet just as tasty as the Lotus Biscoff spread.
According to popular food blog, vegan food UK, Aldi has launched a new own-brand vegan biscuit spread.
The spread is soya free and is said to rival the more popular Lotus Biscoff spread.
Announcing the product, the group wrote: “Soya Free Biscuit Spread Just Launched at Aldi – cheaper than Biscoff, tastes the same!”
It added that people who have tasted the new product ” couldn’t tell the difference between this and Biscoff spread.”

While Aldi’s vegan biscuit spread will reportedly cost £1.79 a jar is a great deal as compared to the Lotus Biscoff spread, which typically costs around £2.28 for a 400g jar in supermarkets such as Tesco and Asda.
Although the product has been advertised as soyafree, the jar carries the allergen warning, which states it “may contain egg and soya”
Vegan product launches
Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, several companies are launching new vegan products to cater to the growing demand for meat and dairy alternatives.
Last month, popular biscuit brand Lotus Biscoff released new vegan cream-filled sandwich biscuits in the UK.
Of the 3 flavours launched, which include Vanilla, Milk Chocolate, and Biscoff Cream—the latter is prepared using vegetarian and vegan ingredients.
The sandwich cookies have been launched in Belgium, France, and in the United Kingdom, where they are currently available in Tesco stores, retailing at £1.39 for a pack of 15 and online.
“The new Sandwich biscuit is the ultimate taste sensation that is sure to go down in biscuit history,” Biscoff said in a statement.
“The Lotus Biscoff Cream has the same unique, unmatched flavor and satisfying crunch of the Lotus Biscoff biscuit, but is circular in shape and packed with a delicious layer of Lotus Biscoff cream.”
In the same month, Marks & Spencer added 2 new vegan products to its ever expanding Plant Kitchen range.
Around the same time, Kinnerton, a UK based chocolate company unveiled a Nut Free Hazelnot Crunch Choc Bar containing rice crispy pieces, cocoa nibs and natural nut free flavour blended in a creamy choc recipe.
The new bar is dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free and nut-free making it perfect for vegans and nut allergy sufferers alike.
