Just a quick post to share my excitement! Last week I popped into my local Spar to grab a carton of Almond Breeze for a carrot cake recipe I was making for my birthday. I noticed the new nolac milk from Clover and squatted down to take a picci (as us vegans do when we spot a new product – not that this one is vegan though). The store owner saw my abnormal gesture and asked if he could assist. After a brief chat about veganism, he took me on a Spar tour with pitstops at all the exciting new vegan sections he implemented. I was thrilled to see the wide range of fantastic vegan products Plattekloof Spar now has on offer – think ice creams, yoghurts, protein powders, cheeses, tofu, pizza, pasta, sauces and chocolates. I used to drive up all the way from Panorama to Sea Point Spar whenever a vegan ice cream craving hit. With the petrol price going up, I’m over the moon to have access to a vegan haven merely 3km down the road. It is fantastic to see the vegan movement blossoming in South Africa – and especially in the “Boerewors curtain” where I stay.
EVENT: Tomorrow, 26 November 2016, Plattekloof Spar is hosting an instore demo for UTOPIA cashew cream yoghurts between 11:00 and 12:00. If you are in the area, pop in for a bite and stock up on yummy goodies to fill your pantry with!
