Veggie Percy – Big up the new gelatine free sweet treat

Image003

As I’m in a sweet-toothed frivolous frame of mind as it’s a Friday afternoon, I thought I’d share some super news with fellow vegetarians – M&S has revealed Percy Pigs are soon to be available in a gelatine free option!

It’s a royal pain in the bottom that so many sweets are off limits to us vegetarians as they are produced using beef and pork gelatine, a protein made from animal tissue and gruesome stuff.

Veggie Percy uses a pea protein which has been specially developed just for him. M&S has spent over three years developing a veggie solution which maintains both flavour and the must-have bouncy texture.

Now M&S have found a way to produce sweets without using gelatine, will other sweet manufacturers take the hint and start looking into vegetarian alternatives? I really do hope so.

Meanwhile, Veggie Percy, who has the green ear vegetarian-friendly guarantee, will go on sale nationwide from Tuesday 2nd August for the purse-friendly sum of £1.25 for a 70g portion.

See you at the checkout!
