Accidentally Vegan Products of the Week: Pies and Tarts

All the time I discover supermarket products that I assumed would not be vegan but by some miracle actually are. So I thought I would document the new things I find each week – as knowing that you can satisfy your sweet craving in Sainbury’s, not just your local health food shop which only does…
