Must have to be rich to be a vegan, the most economical jar they sell is the 250 gram jar for £5.99, works out to £23.96 a kilo, NZ$45.04 a kilo.

 

And it's fake LOL.

 

Doubt the beekeepers need feel very threatened ha ha.

Ok.  Apparently this is Organic bona fide fake honey.    How long before we find bee approved faux manuka on the market place too?

Thank you Chrisdub, pleased to read that somehow buying this would please the bees, but the highlight was the link at the bottom of the page about vegan condoms - relieved that manufacturers are doing their best to restrict the growth in numbers of vegans.

There would be a Trade Descriptions case against this if anyone could be bothered. As the UK will be practically lawless shortly they'd better be quick.

Agreed, I found the honeycomb design on the label particularly deceptive. Without thinking too much, someone in a supermarket could easily think they are buying a jar of honey.

Vegetarian sausages. Kind of look like sausages. But I’d never buy one.

Sheep are vegan and they make pretty good sausages.

Agreed - actually I would not have posted it except for the incredibly misleading labelling!  How can it be legal to advertise a honey substitute with such an obvious visual link to a natural animal product in order to actually sell it as vegan!    That would be like a vegan sausage with a picture of a pig or a sheep or cow on the packet.

They don't even list the ingredients in the sales blurb. A joe bloggs had to ask, and all the seller put was that it was made out of organic brown rice. 🤔 🤠

If it's not actually honey, does that mean they could put DHA and MGO in it? 🤔

My sister is a vegan .

But she eats my honey and eats  my chooks eggs .

She can see my 4 chooks have a pretty good life . A large warm dry house and a big run of bush and paddock .

I understand vegan sentiments but the world has got used to cheap food and most people are not prepared to pay the extra money to give animals a better life .

At my place is told: full-fed doesn't understand the hungry. 

It is hilarious when some no meat eater come and praise our food which has some animal origin.. I always say live your life and let me live my..

While I was in visit in France we eat food as all mortals from supermarkets. The meat I ate hardly go down the throat and I felt as having some stone in a belly accompanied with some unpleasant odor. If I live there more likely will eat little or no meat, since vegetables didn't taste as bad as " meat".. 

About these honey replacements.. I hardly believe have any positive effect on human health.. Only it is sticky and sweet.. In our local beek disputes, one beek mentioned that industrial glucose-fructose syrup encourage diabetes, to see scientific proof I have to look what research he refers to.

Seems someone has too much free time, maybe to try to work some..

I would say, better they work on themselves and lead by example and lead normal human talk. Installing on force their ideas into my mind only create resistance..
