Fudge Kitchen celebrates November’s World Vegan Month and 75 years of the Vegan Society with a showcase of vegan confectionery innovations, including: Four flavours of vegan slab fudge available in their seven shops and online, throughout November; a growing list of products officially registered with the Vegan Society; two new vegan friendly hampers and an own label vegan Chocolate, Fruit & Nut fudge bar for Selfridges.
According to The Vegan Society, which this year celebrates its 75th anniversary, the number of vegans in Great Britain quadrupled between 2014 and 2018. Veganism is clearly neither a recent fad, nor a fleeting one.
Showcasing their exponentially expanding family of vegan friendly premium confectionery, Fudge Kitchen is celebrating November’s World Vegan Month with plant-based aplomb this year, highlighting how accessible veganism is, and how there is certainly no martyrdom required to live a vegan lifestyle.
Throughout November, the seven Fudge Kitchen shops in Bath, Cambridge, Canterbury, Edinburgh, Oxford, Windsor and York, will be promoting veganism, inviting local food bloggers in to learn about making incredible, authentic fudge, that just happens to be vegan; and including four vegan slab fudges in their regular menu. Still handmade traditionally, in a copper pot over a naked flame to a core 1830’s recipe, before being “loafed and slabbed” on marble for that signature creaminess and crisp coating. But, after exhaustive tweaking and trialing of classic recipes, imperceptibly ‘veganised’ with dairy alternatives. No mean task in the fickle business of authentic fudge making.
November’s vegan lines will include: Sea Salted Caramel and Chocolate Classic, made with soya milk, and Vanilla Coconut, made with coconut milk; with a rolling fourth flavour taken from a growing list of vegan friendly slab fudges, that includes Maple Walnut, Rum Raisin, Chocolate Orange, Lemon Drizzle Cake, Traditional Toffee, Treacle Toffee, Peanut Butter Chocolate and Chocolate Hazelnut, which was FK’s inter-shop winner of the 2019 vegan-themed ‘New Year New Flavour’ annual competition, won by the Bath shop.
