    ^ cheers for info, am tempted now! I think one of the recipes was in the Waitrose mag recently, seem to think I ripped it out to save but that it looked a bit unusual.. but always on the lookout for good vegan cookbooks - I have mostly veggie cookbooks but most of my evening meals are vegan.

    ^^ Is the book good??

    Deliciously Ella..

    I mentioned it is gluten-free to OH, he whisked it off the coffee table and I haven't seen it since. I'm hoping that at some point I'll get to try a few recipes :D

    Daylesford organic chicken is on offer at Ocado so I've ordered thighs, wings and drumsticks.

    No matter how much I say to OH I've bought you X to last two weeks eg gluten free rolls in freezer, boxes of Organix or 9 bars, Ella's Kitchen fruit purees for yogurt, apples, easy peeler citrus, grapes, blueberries,raspberries, small bags of Kettle Chips, pine nuts, raisins, gluten free buckwheat crispbreads, French pate, prosciutto .. it all goes in a week, the oink !

    Morrisons are stocking some Crazy Jack products, not sure if this is new as I rarely go in there but was looking online to find a cheaper supplier of organic apricots, after A&C hiked up their prices, and saw them listed. Found them instore too! This was a normal shelf price, wasn't marked as an offer.

    Morries (CJack) 250g dried apricots £2.99
    A&C (Suma) 250g dried apricots £5.69!!!
    Waitrose (own) 250g dried apricots 4.00
    Ocado (CJack) 250g dried apricots 4.19
    Sains (SoOrg) 250g dried apricots 4.00

    Last year A&C were stocking products like dried apricots from the Health Store (iirc) and they were way cheaper than their newly relaunched range.

    Morries also had CJack raisins and sultanas for £1.99 each, but didn't look for or notice anything else. I'll check if they are stocking any of the pulses.
  • I've seen Crazy Jack products in 99p Stores occasionally. However 99p Stores has been bought up by Poundland which does stock some Kallo products.

    I guess we've been spoilt here in London; they've been stocked in several of the Waitrose stores near me for as long as I can remember visiting. Occasionally they offer 25 to 30% off the brand so if you were thinking of testing something out, hold off for a few months if you can for a discount.:money:

    If it's not on organic shopping then please take your petty arguments over to DT.

    Lately, I've been using Sainsbury's in-store for cauliflowers, broccoli, tenderstem broccoli, courgettes, mushrooms, mixed bell peppers, romano peppers, onions, shallots, spring onions, beetroot, bananas, apples, pears, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and grapes.

    I've used Ocado for these only if the price is same/cheaper with or without an offer or Sainsbury's has been out of stock.

    I wanted steaks for OH's birthday so I looked at Abel & Cole because Sainsbury's organic meat can be tough IMO. I looked at veg and I was shocked by the prices.

    So please do check prices because Sainsbury's, Ocado, Waitrose, etc are way cheaper.

    Abel & Cole has offers on Yeo Valley yogurts and some Ecover products atm also Dragonfly burgers

    Iceland has 300g bags of cooked and peeled caught in the North Atlantic prawns for £4 and I'm just loving that natural flavour.

    DO read labels/website though because their Atlantic salmon is actually farmed in Norway.

    Another product I'm really liking is the Arctic Royal Freshly Frozen at Sea hake £8 a bag. It holds together well and again it seems really fresh and flavourful.
