not had enough wine this evening obviously, but aibu in thinking that asda have cocked up a bit when they describe sausages as veggie/vegan, have found quite a lot of stuff described as v/v when it clearly isn't ! some one needs a kick up the arse, oh, hang on it is probably a computer fault but don't people programme them any more - maybe i should slurp up and have another !

Eh? They described sausages as veggie/vegan? Like veggie sausages?

Could you post the link?

Were they Quorn sausages?

So email or tweet them and tell them.

Were they not made of vegetarians? Complain.

mrsfuzzy Fri 01-Jan-16 20:24:45

mrsfuzzy Fri 01-Jan-16 20:29:05

You've had too much wine to make sense grin

Show us what you mean!

Do you mean they've incorrectly labelled meat sausages?

mrsfuzzy Fri 01-Jan-16 20:35:59

sorry, don't know how to do a link but on the asda grocery website i put in 'vegan' which is marked 'vn' in the description and came up with a variety of so called veggie vegan listings.

mrsfuzzy Fri 01-Jan-16 20:37:15

sorry posted too soon, and the items are clearly not veggie or vegan !

mrsfuzzy Fri 01-Jan-16 20:40:27

ie asda cooked and peeled king prawns £5 a bag veggie and vegan wtf ?

The system has malfunctioned and applied the vegan and vegetarian stickers to a lot of random products.

I'm struggling to get excited about this, really - it's a glitch. You'd have to be really short on brain cells to order prawns and then complain that they actually weren't vegan.

frikadela01 Fri 01-Jan-16 20:43:06

Do you mean you typed in a search term and that's what came back? If so that's to do with the website design and not asda misrepresenting their food, lots of websites have crappy search functions.

If you mean on the entry for the prawns it claims they are vegatarian then fair enough.

I've just looked at Asda website. These are what comes up in vegetarian and vegan search, they say suitable for both.
Why do you say they're not?
groceries.asda.com/asda-webstore/landing/home.shtml?cmpid=ppc-_-ghs-_-brand-dsk-_-google-_-asda%20grocerys#/product/1000000479435

groceries.asda.com/asda-webstore/landing/home.shtml?cmpid=ppc-_-ghs-_-brand-dsk-_-google-_-asda%20grocerys#/product/910000482612

I can't see anything jumping out at me to say they're not vegan.

The Quorn sausages taste like real ones. I don't know what's in them. Maybe its quorn...

Yeah, I see, the prawns have a 'suitable for vegetarians' proudly displayed. Perhaps someone else with 'not enough wine' did the programming there grin

Although I have to say thanks, because the Island Delight veggie pattie came up on the search; they are bloody lovely and no supermarket near me stocks them any more, it's all soggy pale cheese and onion pastries in the veggie snack department. Must seek out an Asda!

Vegan prawns

Quorn has eggs in so not vegan

frikadela01 Fri 01-Jan-16 20:51:48

Fair enough. Clearly something went amiss there

peppielillyan Fri 01-Jan-16 21:00:39

All quorn stuff is just soya, but shaped like chicken bits, sausages, etc... MEAT-free meat...

abbsismyhero Fri 01-Jan-16 21:04:19

quorn isn't soya its a fungus type microprotein thingy wine

AbbyCadabby Fri 01-Jan-16 21:05:22

Tang, Quorn have recently brought out some vegan items.
They are very well labelled too.
