Sounds good and I do like the Linda McCartney range (unlike Quorn products which are totally bland ) . Will buy a few packs
I've never seen these before, sounds interesting. I'll give them a go
thanks!

Picked up a couple of packs instore earlier this week but yet to try.

They seem to be switching from the red branded box to a white one so they were these and a few others at £1. Of course it's likely to be store dependant but it's also worth noting that Heron also seem to be taking in the excess stock.

The white box ones are vegan whereas the red ones are vegetarian. Makes it easier for plebs like me to tell the difference!

Ah well you learn something everyday

Well it's quite evident this pleb had absolutely no idea. To be honest I was only drawn in by the reduced label. Cheers for the heads up

I thought it might have been my taste buds. It's good to hear from at least one other person who thinks these (Quorn) products are completely tasteless. Whoever makes them had a fantastic opportunity to create a flavoursome range of veggie items but who seems to think that quantity of different types of product over taste is enough to satisfy us who don't eat meat. That's just plain arrogant. I have stopped buying them altogether now as there's enough in supermarkets' own-brand vegetarian items these days.

Can't see anything non-vegan in the ingredients in the original post! I think Linda McCartney are just refreshing their packaging as everything seems to be changing from red to white packaging
I'm not vegetarian but I think these sound rather nice. Defo worth a try.
£1 a pack all year at Heron for when Morrisons shove their prices back up.
you're right about the ingredients being vegan rather then vegetarian, the only thing it might be is that there is some text saying 'May contain traces of milk' so they've marked it as vegetarian to avoid confusing the issue, perhaps?
I am too miffed with that company to buy anything from them at all any more. I used to love the OLD vegetarian sausages but they replaced the wheat protein with soya .... what an enormous let down, I will not touch them now.

That is not to say that this is not a good deal, it is, just I am angry with the company and fancied venting it

Thats like the old Cauldron sausages. They were just the best, I believe they used tofu. They got taken over, changed the recipe & now make the worst ever.

Google "Chole tikki" . Usually its a potato chana spice mix. Not that common but it is out there.

​very real Indian item but probably made to be stored in a freezer so might taste different.

Quorn nuggets are nice though. Sausages not so much
Only 6% chickpeas..so many ingredients.

Whilst this range do have some interesting products, McCartney products are usually so high in calories and fat. These have 322 calories per veg cake and 12% fat. Quorn is much lower in both. Don't tend to buy Quorn pre made items but use the mince and chicken style pieces all the time for curries, chilli, cottage pie etc then you can get some real flavour into it. Also really like the Quorn Roast.
Quorn for me all the time

Made up in this format. In Punjab they eat aloo tiki (spiced mashed potato cakes coated in breadcrumbs) with chole (channa masala) poured over the top.

But that's not to say these ones are not nice to eat (not tried them personally).
Like chewing on Paul Mcartneys jesus sandals
