Vegan Week: Greggs’ New Vegan-Friendly Doughnut Tastes Like… A Doughnut

Earlier this week we discovered that Greggs had replaced its glazed ring doughnut for a different kind of sweet treat - a glazed ring doughnut that is vegan friendly. The original non-vegan version has since been replaced, in what no doubt haunts Piers Morgan's dreams at night - or so I assume he'll be claiming when he hears the news. Seeing as it's vegan week here at Gizmodo UK, I went out to try one to see what it was like. Four Greggs branches later I managed to get one, only to discover that it tastes like a doughnut.

Vegan Week: Burger King’s Rebel Whopper Fails to Incite a Riot of the Tastebuds

We're in the home stretch of vegan week and this is the last of junk food from the high street that I'll be devouring for some time, and while it would've been nice to go out on a high, I did not. The week started off well enough with the Greggs' Vegan Steak Bake and KFC's Original Recipe Vegan Burger, but things started unravelling pretty sharpish with the McDonald's Veggie Dippers and Subway's Meatless Meatball Marinara Melt. We were back in 'meh' territory with Tom's review of Pizza Hut's 'Pepperphoni' Pizza and now here we are with the Burger King Rebel Whopper, which isn't much better. Read More >>

Vegan Week: Pizza Hut’s ‘Pepperphoni’ Pizza Isn’t Bad, But It’s Not Replacing Real Pizza Anytime Soon

Vegan Week is drawing to a close here at Gizmodo UK, and we still have plenty of new vegan junk food to get through. Now up until this point we've focused on fast food, but we're mixing that up just this once. Why? Because we couldn't resist a proper sit-down meal at Pizza Hut to try their new vegan 'Pepperphoni' - a dish that you can't get from the Pizza Hut delivery shops that are scattered about towns and cities. Not wanting to pay for Uber Eats or Deliveroo, or have to lug it home while it got cold, I went in and made an evening of it. Read More >>

Vegan Week: Subway’s Meatless Meatball Marinara Melt Tastes Like Balls

Vegan week here at Giz UK is in full swing, with the staff sampling the tastiest meatless morsels the high street has to offer. We were off to a strong start with Gregg's Vegan Steak Bake, and KFC's Original Recipe Vegan Burger, but things started going downhill with the McDonald's Veggie Dippers and are positively subterranean with today's instalment - Subway's Meatless Meatball Marinara Melt.

Vegan Week: McDonald’s Veggie Dippers are Pretty Boring and Uninspiring

This week, we're going big on the new vegan fast food that's arrived thanks to Veganuary, and so far it's been rather good. Greggs' Vegan Steak Bake and KFC's fake chicken burger went down well in our testing, but times change now that we're onto McDonald's. Honestly? The new veggie dippers are a pretty boring addition to veganuary. Read More >>

Vegan Week: We Loved KFC’s Original Recipe Vegan Burger – Even If Someone Messed With the Colonel’s Spices

KFC has hopped onto the vegan burger bandwagon with its Original Recipe Vegan Burger - a Quorn fillet coated in the famously mysterious 11 herbs and spices, perched on a bed of lettuce, and served on a vegan mayo smeared bun. Obviously we had to try it, what with it being Veganuary, and weigh in with our highly subjective opinion on whether or not it's tasty. Read More >>

Vegan Week: Taste-Testing Greggs’ Vegan Steak Bake

Greggs' vegan steak bake is the latest animal-free pastry to arrive at Greggs, following the phenomenal success of the vegan sausage roll last year. With the marketers and advertisers telling use that this month is 'Veganuary', we decided it might be a good idea to round off the month by taste-testing some of the new vegan stuff that's been hitting fast food outlets across the country - steak bake included.
