Co-op vegan sausage and beans are here – but they're pricey



Nothing better for a cruelty-free hangover breakfast (Picture: Suma Wholefoods)In this day and age, going vegan doesn’t mean you have to eschew all your favourite treats.
From fried seitan ‘chicken’ to vegan fish and chips, there are all sorts you can have. The humble tin of sausages and beans has so far eluded UK supermarkets.
Although many offer veggie tins, they often contain eggs, so vegan customers have been unable to eat them.
Co-op have changed the game, however, by bringing the Suma brand vegan option to their stores, and plant-based food lovers are overjoyed.
It features baked beans mixed with six meat-free Lincolnshire style sausages, made with herbs and spices, and costs £1.60 for 400g.
There’s a celebrity connection, too, as the bean and sausage mix are a collaboration between Suma and VBites, spearheaded by Heather Mills.

One Facebook user said of the launch: ‘Those sausage and beans taste better than the ones we had as kids. Even better that they don’t contain animal bits’.
Other comments praising it poured in, although some did bring up the fact that they’re around 60p a tin more than their meaty counterpart.
It seems that it’s a small price to pay for a product without animal in it. And we all know what’s in the usual tinned sausages, so it’s perhaps worth it to avoid the gristle.
