Since we set up Vegan Wine Box, we have met a lot of dedicated artisan producers and sampled some really exciting vegan products. So we thought it was time we shared them with you in this list of recommended vegan products, split out by category. We have either sampled these products ourselves or have been in direct contact with all of these companies.
Cakes and Puddings
Dark Matters make the most amazing vegan brownies in Bristol. They do lots of local markets and events, as well as sell online. They always have a range of flavours at their markets (including my favourite Peanut Butter Swirl) and are always bringing out new flavours. If you’ve not tried one before, you really should.
You can find out more about them and where they are on their website: eatdarkmatters.com
Happy Bunny Bakery
Happy Bunny Bakery makes vegan cakes and puddings. They are a Worcester based company but do events, sell online and can be found in some shops. We’re a big fan of their puddings; my favourite so far is the chocolate and raspberry pudding but hoping to get my hands on a sticky toffee pudding very soon.
Find out more about them on their website: happybunnybakery.co.uk
Food by Sumear
Sumear is an ex-Dairy cheesemaker who has turned his skills to making vegan cheese. He makes cashew based cheeses, which are available at various stockists around the country. His maple wood smoked cheese is one of Emma’s favourites.

Hungry Herbie is a vegan discount card that gives you great discounts on a range of vegan foods, products and lifestyle services. Mostly Bath and Bristol based, but there are online deals to be had as well (discounts on vegan wine, hint, hint!).

Eat Your Greens
Eat Your Greens is a vegan cafe by day / restaurant by night eatery on the Wells road in Bristol. They serve innovative, delicious meals based on seasonal ingredients. They also do a Sunday roast – booking is essential, and we highly recommend if you find yourself in Bristol one Sunday afternoon.
