Can vegans eat home grown honey?

This is a topic of debate that I see very often and I am always interested in the different arguments for each side. I therefore though it would be fun to hear from you guys as to what you would do: Would you eat home grown honey? And by home grown I mean honey that comes from an individual’s own hive that they keep as a hobby, rather than from a farm or commercial enterprise that is mainly keeping bees for financial gain.

Do vegans usually eat commercial honey?

Obviously everyone is on their own vegan journey so there is no ‘correct’ answer, however from my experience and from speaking with other people the majority of vegans tend to avoid commercially produced honey. Some argue that it is because it is an animal product means a vegan should never eat this as vegans do not eat, wear or otherwise use any animal products as much as they possibly can. Honey would be no different.

Others have also mentioned that commercial honey comes with a large degree of exploitation and that on commercial scale honey farming the welfare of the bees is of least consideration. To harvest honey, bees need to first be smoked as this makes them sleepy and less aggressive, and then the actual harvesting part can cause the death of a lot of the colony’s bees because they get trapped in the machines or get trapped in the honey comb as it is being removed from the hive. Since the entire message behind veganism is to avoid causing harm to any living being as much as possible, by buying commercial honey you are directly funding the continuation of this practice.

The other point I see mentioned quite a bit is that the bees actually need the honey – it is their main food source and when winter comes it is all they have to survive on. Bees need the honey to survive, we don’t. So why eat something we don’t need, especially when there are so many vegan options out there that do the same job such as maple syrup and agave syrup, and in many cases are also cheaper than the honey on sale.

But how does home grown honey differ?

The largest plus of a person keeping their own bees and therefore being able to harvest their own honey is that they would know exactly what is being done to the bees. There would be no (or at least very little) concern over exploitation, as the bee keeper would only take what they wanted and would always ensure that the health of the hive came first. At least, that would be my thinking should I ever keep my own bees. I would know exactly how healthy the hive was, how much honey was produced and if I wanted to take a little amount for myself I would make sure that the hive always had enough honey in the combs to ensure a healthy winter.

The scale of honey harvesting would also be far smaller. One person can only eat so much honey, and even if they did gift it/sell it to friends or family this would be no where near the same scale as a commercial enterprise. 10 jars (let’s say) of honey is barely a drop compared to the hundreds of thousands of jars that are produced every day by a commercial company. Let’s also assume that a jar of honey would last a family a month – twelve jars or honey a year for one person is still a tiny amount compared to the commercial production line which needs to make millions a year.

There is also a very slim chance of a private person selling honey for a profit. Sure they may want to get rid of some excess honey and make a little bit of money on the side but again, if we assume it is only being sold to friends and family this figure is still likely to be around £100 a year (assuming they sell one jar for £2-£5 to maybe 10 people once a month for a year) which is nothing compared to the thousands (if not millions) of profit made by some commercial brands.

Linking to all of the above, you would assume that someone who does keep their own bees doesn’t do it simply so they have free honey: beekeeper doesn’t appear to be the most relaxing of past times and you would expect that someone who would be interested in keeping bees would do so because they have a general interests in the bees themselves. Yes the honey is nice, but they much more enjoy seeing the hive grow and change and develop over time, seeing how the bees interact with one another, and also perhaps feeling like they are playing their part in helping to protect the best pollinator around. Bees are already in great danger from commercial grade pesticides and farming practices, and without bees many flowers and crops would cease to exist without the required pollination taking place. There are many campaigns ongoing to help bring the pollinators back and by keeping a hive, it may help someone feel like they can protect at least this hive from any future troubles.

Would I personally eat home grown honey?

Ok so I don’t actually like honey. I don’t really like syrup either. If I want to add something sweet to my porridge or pancakes or oats, I will usually go for fruit or (arguably the most unhealthy option out of everything) a literal spoonful of granulated sugar. So I have really gone most of my life never eating honey. However I do try to avoid it as much as I can when it comes to premade packages, such as breakfast bars or granola, where honey is so regularly used as a healthier sugar source.

But I think that even if I did keep my own bees, I would still be very reluctant to eat the honey. I would always want to ensure that my hive was healthy and had enough honey to keep them fit and healthy so I wouldn’t really want to take that away from them, especially for a product that I wouldn’t normally eat otherwise. Now perhaps I would sometimes take some honey to gift to a friend or family member for their birthday or Christmas, but again this would be maybe 4 jars a year? A tiny amount in the grand scheme of things and again I would only even consider it if I knew that my hive had more than enough to keep them healthy.

As with everything I do, my main concern is always the animals. Everything I do, I do for them. Sure the environmental impact and sustainability aspect is always a plus, but the animals are always at the root of any decision I make: If an animal had to suffer or be disturbed to get this product to me, then I don’t want it.

What do you guys think? Would you eat home grown honey? Why or why not? I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions so please do leave me a message below!

Ben and Jerry’s Berry Revolutionary

England has just had a mini heatwave (34 degrees Celsius which is pretty uncommon for us!) and the heat of England is the heaviest, most humid heat that I have experienced. Even when the wind blows it is like having someone blow a hairdryer into your face, so it does absolutely nothing to cool you down. It was therefore the perfect opportunity to drink a LOT of iced water, avoid any type of cooking and have ice cream for lunch.

Now Ben and Jerry’s is always top tier in the ice cream game. No matter what flavour you pick you are onto a winner. I am still praying to every vegan entity out there that one day soon a vegan version of their Phish Phood will be released because nothing has come close to it even now.

Now I also don’t buy Ben and Jerry’s that often because they are easily the most expensive option out there. They are also one brand that really suffer with the Vegan Tax: A standard tub of their dairy ice cream is around £3 usually, but the vegan options are around £5.50. They do sometimes go on sale for £3, but then the dairy ice cream will be on sale for £1 and…feels kind of half hearted. I therefore only buy Ben and Jerry’s when I want something a little bit extra instead of just basic chocolate or vanilla. This doesn’t happen this often, and one tub could last me at least a month or two as I really don’t eat that much ice cream.

This Berry Revolutionary though was something real special. It is labelled on the lid as a sundae and it lived up to that. The top was a whipped ice cream with caramel swirls and chocolate chunks, while the rest of the ice cream was raspberry flavoured with chocolate chunks and crumbled Oreo type biscuits mixed into it. I have not had whipped ice cream in years – at least I am assuming it’s the same type of ice cream as a Mr Whippy ice cream – but this was a lovely little topping. It was very fluffy and airy and worked so well with the chunky chocolate and caramel swirls. Obviously it is ice cream so is quite sweet but it was the perfect thing to have on a boiling hot summers day.

Little Lola enjoying her own meal in the background…

The raspberry ice cream though – oh lordy! It has been YEARS since I have had fruit ice cream. Most options available are fruit sorbets which are very different to ice creams in my opinion. I forgot how much I LOVE raspberry ice cream. It has such a sharp taste to it that it immediately wakes you up and is just so refreshing when you feel like you are melting. The little chocolate chunks and cookie bits mixed into it also gave you a lovely little mix of chocolate raspberry flavouring and some really satisfying crunches amongst the soft ice cream. Now I truly could have eaten this entire part of the sundae in one sitting, but luckily brain freeze hit first.

I would honestly say that this option is the best Ben and Jerry’s flavour out there, especially from the vegan offerings. I might even go so far as to say that it is better than I remember Phish Phood being! It was honestly all that saved me from the heatwave and no doubt will get me through a lot of this coming summer, which is (as it is every single year) set to be the hottest on record (or alternatively, thanks to global warming, this year will be the coolest year in history) and I will need all the help I can get to cool down. Yes, the ice cream is one of the most expensive options out there, but if you want a true treat that will last you through summer, I would highly recommend splashing out on this. The fruity flavour also means it would work wonderfully as a post dinner party dessert, mixed with a bowl of fruit and left to enjoy in the sunshine.

Overall: 20/10. Best vegan flavour at there in my opinion.

Pudding Stop vegan cookie dough sundae

Oh damn…

Now THIS is how you do a dessert. I think this gave me enough sugar to last me for a good few months but goodness me was it delicious!

A few weeks ago, during some annual leave, we took a trip to St Albans in Hertfordshire. If you have never been, I would highly recommend you visit because St Albans is a beautiful little city. I mean it is technically a city because you have the amazing St Albans Cathedral, but it feels far more like a village. The high street is packed with little boutique shops, patisseries, book stores and independent restaurants as well as some of your more mainstream chains. It also has some lovely cobblestone side paths that are fun to explore and feels very compact – could easily spend a whole day just wandering around all of the little streets and looking at the adorable cottages that line the streets. It’s also a 30 minute train to London Bridge so can easily make a lovely day trip or long weekend visit. There are a lot of pretty parks to walk around and a lot of roman heritage throughout – most notably being the fact that it is based at the top of a really big hill so you can get some really lovely views at certain points around the city.

Aside from all of the history and cute little boutiques to keep you busy, it also has one of the best pudding places I have ever been to. It is called the Pudding Stop and is always a must visit when we do venture out to St Albans. The city as a whole is really good for vegan options, and they do actually run a vegan market down the main high street at certain points of the year which is always very exciting. The pudding stop have some very good vegan options, and I decided to try once of these.

I will preface this with the fact that I felt like a hummingbird after eating this, but I had also done around 15000 steps so felt it was a reasonable treat. The vegan cookie dough sundae had one scoop of coconut and chocolate chip ice-cream, one scoop of chocolate sorbet, caramel sauce and chunks of cookie dough. Now the coconut ice cream was nice enough but the chocolate sorbet was to die for. It was rich and silky and had a slightly bitter taste to it compared to the other super sweet parts of the sundae, which actually helped offset a lot of the sickly sweetness. The rest is exactly how you would expect: cookie dough was literally small chunks of cookie dough and the caramel sauce was the sweet sauce you’d expect.

I was grateful that they do not give you too many cookie dough chunks as I am pretty certain they were just lumps of sugar. As I say above the chocolate sorbet was the real star of the show and did help to mellow out the overly sweet flavours of everything else. The ice cream was very refreshing and you did get a real hit of coconut with it, which I think I preferred. Sometimes coconut ice cream (at least I feel anyway) can have so many things added to it that it doesn’t actually taste like coconut, so it was really nice to have this creamy and sweet ice cream that did taste like it was freshly made.

This sundae cost £5, which I have to say was an absolute bargain for the amount you get. It does not sound like much but they are very generous with their scoop sizes and I did find it quite the struggle to finish. And not just because I felt like I could see sound I was so buzzed! It was fantastic quality and I feel if you were trying to get something similar to this in London or a much larger main city it would cost you at least double (if not triple) that price for way less actual product. As a special one off treat, this is completely worth the price and I would highly recommend it if you do stop by.

Overall: 9/10. Absolutely delicious, but not something I could eat on a regular basis. But absolutely worth the one off treat.

PSA: Vegan Percy Pigs

One of the biggest staples of Britain is Marks & Spencer’s, and I think the main reason for this is Percy Pig. What started out as a little pig-shaped sweet has now grown into the mascot, who has cakes, sweets, decorations and stuff toys all in his image and his honour. Which is rightly so because Percy Pigs were always one of the best sweets out there and definitely were worth the hype.

Their Percy Pig sweets (and the very many combinations that have followed, including some of Percy;’s farmyard pals) were always vegan friendly but were not fully vegan. Perhaps you saw that wonderful moment where Piers Morgan (some ‘TV presenter’ here in the UK) who tried a gelatin free Percy Pig and then proceeded to act like he had been poisoned. It was quite the show from a man who claims that anyone under 40 is a ‘snowflake’. But I digress…

I have not had a Percy Pig in years but am very excited that Percy Pigs are now offering vegan options. The best part is that they also clearly label the packs that are vegan friendly. The ones I saw on offer (may vary depending on store and location) were Percy Pig Piglets, Phizzy Pigtails and Percy Loves Penny Pig. I couldn’t see if they did the standard Percy Pig as a vegan version, so if anyone does find these please let me know!

I have yet to try these (currently limiting my sugar) but am very excited to see such a well-loved and well-known sweet offering vegan options. Just goes to show how fast the vegan movement is spreading and makes me more and more excited that one day veganism will be the norm.

If you have tried any of the vegan Percy Pigs please let me know how they are! Also let me know which is the best packet of sweets so I know what to get on my next treat day.

Fry’s Popcorn chick’n

I have heard great things about Fry’s, but unfortunately in the UK the brand is quite hard to come by in regular stores. Usually I only see it on offer at the very expensive and very niche places, such as Whole Foods or Ocado. However in the last few months I have started to see some of their products appear in regular grocery stores, so I finally decided to see what all the fuss was about.

One of our go to meals is our medley. This is usually what we have if we don’t feel too hungry, or just want a load of different comfort foods without it actually being a meal. So this will usually involve chicken nuggets, a sandwich of some sort and some crisps, although we do change the brand and the product every week depending on what we fancy. The majority of the food is frozen, as I think it is always best to have these super easy foods available on days where I either don’t want to cook or don’t want anything massive for dinner. So these little popcorn chicken pieces sounded perfect to just have in the freezer should one of those days arise.

These are also very good. They are light and fluffy on the inside and definitely have that meaty texture. Now there is still a degree of ‘this is clearly fake meat’ because I personally don’t like my meat alternatives to be super meat-like – it always makes me panic that I am indeed eating meat and then I feel guilty even though I know that it isn’t meat. So for me these were the perfect texture, but if you prefer the more meaty texture then you may not like these too much. Now the instructions do say to only cook these for 10 minutes, but I found that 10 minutes was not long enough to crisp up the outside. The first time I cooked them, after 10 minutes the outside was a bit soft still and while it still tasted very nice, I would have preferred it to be a bit crispier. I now therefore cook these for about 15 minutes – until each piece starts to look a darker brown rather than the golden brown – and I find that this makes the outside nice and crispy and also doesn’t dry out the chicken filling. That being said, my oven is not the best oven, so you may need to experiment a bit when you come to cooking these so you can get the perfect time.

Price wise these were actually on Tesco Clubcard offer for £1.50, but full price they are £3. We got about 4 servings out of the box (roughly 6/7 pieces for each serving) so not a bad amount of food for the price. However, I do not think it does anything different to the cheaper options out there. Personally, popcorn chicken tastes exactly like a chicken nugget to me, so I don’t really notice any difference on what shape my chicken takes. So while this popcorn chicken is very good and definitely worth a try, there are cheaper options out there in the form of nuggets, strips or plain pieces. Personally, I probably would pick these up again to keep them in my freezer for those days when we don’t fancy cooking, but it isn’t something I would eat every single week.

Overall: 7/10. A solid option out there, but nothing too special.

Frankie & Benny’s vegan mac ‘n’ cheese

I haven’t been to a Frankie & Benny’s in years. There used to be one round the corner from where I lived but since moving there isn’t one within a reasonable distance. However we took a trip into Wembley (London) the other day and decided to see what new options they had added to their menu. I have seen people rave about their pizzas so I wanted to see what else they offered, if anything at all.

They actually have a surprising amount of vegan options and I did take my time deciding which one I fancied the most. In the end I went with a good comfort meal, of mac and cheese. I also decided to try their vegan milkshake as I don’t think I have had a milkshake in years either and I got too excited.

The mac and cheese was…pretty average. It was very creamy but didn’t have any real ‘cheese’ taste to it. It did have some tomatoes in it which did add a nice bit of acidity to the meal and stopped any of the cheese from being too thick or overpowering. I also appreciated that the portion size was smaller than I was expecting and I felt like it was the perfect amount of mac and cheese. Many times places give you such a large portion that the meal just starts to feel stodgy and heavy with every additional mouthful, but this portion of mac and cheese was the right amount that left you feeling comfortably satisfied without feeling bloated or overstuffed.

The milkshake was a letdown, I hate to say. It was basically vegan vanilla ice cream with some chocolate flakes in it. It was advertised as being ‘chocolate chip’ but there were so few chips it may as well have just been called a vanilla milkshake. I am not the biggest fan of vanilla so I only managed about half of it before I started to feel a bit sickly, and it wasn’t even a big glass. As I say the chocolate chips weren’t even chips, they were more like chocolate shavings – those really thin flakes that are mostly used for decoration in cake making. Barely any chocolate flavour to any of it. Very disappointed.

Overall: 7/10, Mac and Cheese is a good option, but nothing overly special or new. The milkshake is a total skip – unless you just want a vanilla milkshake.

Itsu veggie sushi collection

Another joy of going into London is that I can finally go back to Itsu. If you’ve had a look through my blog you know that I am a big fan of sushi – it is simple and filling while being a light meal. I have tried a lot of sushi in my time but my favourite is always Itsu – it is roughly the same price as the other options out there but their meals just seem to be of a higher quality: The sushi is always light and fluffy and their hot meals are consistently tasty regardless of which option you pick.

My go to meal at Itsu is always the veggie sushi collection because you get a lot of sushi options for a decent price. Also if you have never had sushi before I feel this gives you a good introduction into what options are out there, so if you do not like one option you know not to buy that moving forward. I, however, love all of these and the sushi box is definitely cheaper than buying each plate of sushi by itself.

Me and my partner did actually share this box because you get a lot of sushi. You get:

  • 4 veggie maki (with the carrots and green beans)
  • 6 baby avocado rolls, ginger
  • fresh avocado on a carrot salad
  • 5 veggie dragon rolls
  • some ginger slices, wasabi packet and a little bottle of soya sauce.

My favourite is hands down the veggie dragon rolls – the sauce and the crispy mushrooms flakes just add something special to these rolls that you don’t get with the maki or the baby rolls. Although I do also love the baby rolls because they are just so tasty and so light, and the avocado always refreshes me.

Now this whole tray was £6.50 (although I am not sure if this varies depending on where you are) which to me is really good value for money. The trays of each individual type of sushi are around £4 each, so it is definitely cheaper to buy the sushi tray than to buy them all individually. Now sushi is always more expensive than the other options out there on the high street, so it will never be the cheapest option if that is what you are after. But if you wanted to try sushi, or wanted to splash out a little bit on your lunch break, then I would highly recommend trying Itsu over the other sushi places. As I say the quality of the food is always consistently good and always tasty, and it always seems to be worth the higher price tag for me.

Overall: 10/10. Anything you order will be great and this tray is always super tasty.

PSA: Hotel Chocolat Easter sale!

Hotel Chocolat definitely do some of the best chocolate around, which is most likely why it is also the most expensive out there. But I do stand by their chocolate being the best out there. If I ever want a decadent or posh chocolate fix, Hotel Chocolat is my go to.

They also go all out for Easter and have some of the biggest and prettiest Easter eggs I have ever seen. PLUS they do vegan versions of almost all their ranges of Easter eggs which is always good to see. Their vegan ostrich egg, for example, was literally the size of an ostrich egg (hence the name) but for £85 it wasn’t really something I would ever be looking to buy.

Which is why their post Easter sale is so exciting! The majority of their products are 50% off, if not more, so that £85 egg for £42.50 is a little bit more reasonable and affordable. I could not resist a little trip in to see what was on offer.

They had a lot on offer – with little packets of their bunny shaped chocolate pieces for £2. I however decided to get real bang for my buck and picked up the vegan Sleekster packet. It’s been so long since I have had anything from Hotel Chocolat that I wanted to be able to try a wide range of their selection, and the sleekster was stupid good value for money.

£7!! This huge box was only £7. And that was 70% off and there is so much chocolate in it! You also get a good selection of the different treats, so you can find out which ones are your favourites. I have borrowed what they say on their website and the pack contains the following:

  • Peanut Buche – blends deep roasted peanuts with salted Nutmilk and a sprinkle of crispy cornflakes.
  • Salted Caramel – sumptuous caramel with a mellow Nutmilk base.
  • Dark Raspberry – a rich 70% Nutmilk bursting with tart pressed raspberries.
  • Pecan Praline – naturally sweetened pecan and a touch of sea salt are a dream combination.
  • Gianduja – finely blended praline wrapped in deep 70% dark Nutmilk chocolate.
  • Hazelnut Batons – gloriously nutty, perfect for evening nibbling.
  • Orange Batons –  pairs creamy cocoa with zesty Valencian oil.

Personally, the dark raspberry balls are to die for. These are next level chocolates in my opinion. The chocolate is soft and creamy, but the raspberry coulis inside is so tart and refreshing. It is just the perfect chocolate for me. The chocolate batons are just…slim bars of chocolate. Still very nice but nothing too spectacular. The gianduja balls are also one of my favourites, as they are a lot richer than the nutmilk options and are like little truffle balls.

If you have never had Hotel Chocolat pieces before I would highly recommend trying this sleekster pack because you get to try all of their options for a really good price. Even full price this packet is £23.50 (according to their online store at least) which still seems like very good value for money seeing as you get so much chocolate in it. As I say I picked this up for £7 in the sale at my local store, although they did also have smaller versions and bigger versions depending on your budget also on offer as part of the sale. I would therefore suggest taking a look at your local when you next go past, just in case there are any other good bargains!

Overall: 10/10. I think i’ll be eating this collection of chocolate for months with how much is in it!

BOL Japanese katsu curry

I finally decided to try the BOL range! I have heard pretty good things about it and their food does always look quite appetising. Unfortunately though, as I don’t have a microwave, that limits a lot of their ready meals – and many other ready meals really. They also tend to be the more expensive option on the shelves so I have always avoided them and gone for something a bit cheaper when needing a quick meal. But I finally decided to just try one.

This one actually could be cooked on the stove which I obviously needed. It took about 5 minutes so definitely an easy meal if you’re ever stuck after a busy day. I also liked that the packaging actually told you to rinse and reuse the pot, which is not something you see very often. My pot is going to be repurposed as a great overnight oats bowl!

Taste wise, unfortunately it did still taste like a ready meal. The sauce especially had that very faint powdery taste to it that ready meals tend to have, although the actual veg contents did seem to be a lot fresher. The rice didn’t end up super sticky and the potatoes didn’t just crumble at the slightest touch. The sauce was not hot at all, which I was quite disappointed about. I definitely did not get an katsu flavour either – it tasted ok but I couldn’t really tell you what the taste was. Mostly just veg…with some kind of sauce? I however did appreciate that the veg that was meant to be crunchy did actually remain crunchy after cooking – it didn’t just turn to mush like most ready meals do.

It was also very filling, so while it may not have tasted amazing, it definitely filled me up for the rest of the afternoon. So effective, but not satisfying.

Now this cost £3 and while that is still expensive compared to some of the other options out there, I suppose it isn’t the worst price? You could probably get this once (or twice depending on your situation) and keep it in reserve for a quick lunch or easy dinner during the week. They do also have a few other flavours in their range, as well as other BOL meals that needed a microwave. I will definitely try the others and let you know which the best one is – although let me know if you have any recommendations!

Overall: 5/10. It’s fine. Not great, but not bad either. A perfectly fine option for an easy and quick meal.

Doughnut Time: Lil’ Dough Peep

It was Easter weekend here in England which means a 4 day weekend! The weather has also been surprisingly wonderful (20 degrees?! In April?!) so was the perfect time to take a trip into London. Which means we had to take a trip to Doughnut Time.

Now when I go into London I do walk everywhere: Started at Baker Street, and from there we walked down Regents Street to Leicester Square, wandered around that area for a while and then around Soho, back up to Oxford street and then back to Baker Street to head home. Overall I walked around 27,500 steps so needless to say I was in need of a little sugar kick by the time we got to Soho.

This was actually the store in China Town which has a really good selection of the doughnuts. They are also have the fan favourites, such as Liam Hemsworthy (red velvet based)and the David Biscoff (lotus biscoff spread based) as well as their seasonal specials. Now these doughnuts, as I have said before, are HUGE and we finally decided to share a doughnut rather than have one each.

I chose the Lil’ Dough Peep because it looked the least sickly. It looked like a nice, basic doughnut that would give me just the right amount of sugar and Easter spirit without sending me into sugar shock. It was also the only seasonal vegan option on sale so I thought it best to try a new one.

This was actually very nice indeed. It tasted like parma violets! For those who do not live in England and have therefore never experienced a parma violet, they are little sugar disc candies that taste like…well…violet. It sounds odd when I type it, but trust me they are just refreshing and sweet without being super sugary or over the top. It was also nice to have a doughnut time that didn’t make me feel sick after a few bites. I think I could have actually eaten this whole doughnut myself, as it wasn’t overpowering and was just a lovely little springtime treat. Compared to some of the others on sale it also appeared to be the lightest and most understated, which is just what I wanted.

Price wise they are very expensive. Each doughnut is around £5, with the most extravagant ones nearing £6 and the plainer ones being around £4.50. I do however stand by the fact that these are definitely worth it as a once in a while treat. The doughnuts are always something special and for me are worth the high price tag for the very limited treat. Even though I live about a 30 minute train from London, I still only manage to go into the city maybe two or three times a year for leisure. I would always recommend visiting a Doughnut Time if you are ever in London.

Overall: 9/10. Definitely one of the best one I have had so far. Shame it is for such a limited time!
