The shops are full of festive treats right now and I’m totally on board with it. I’m so ready to embrace the run-up to Christmas and this year I’ve noticed more dairy free products than ever hitting the supermarket and small business shelves.
Over on my Dairy Free Daisy Tiktok I’ve been sharing all the dairy free Christmas themed products that I come across. I’m keen to start sharing more posts here on the DFD blog and thought I’d start by telling you about 5 dairy free festive finds I spotted in Tesco the other week. These are all cake-based sweet treats which can be found down the cake isle.

5 festive dairy free finds at Tesco
Wicked Kitchen is a vegan brand which is exclusive at Tesco. They have so many new products popping up around the store at the moment and their Christmas range is huge.
This fruit cake is made with date purée, concentrated orange juice soaked vine fruits, figs, prunes and glace cherries, covered in sugar paste and hand decorated with edible sparkle. Everything you’d expect from a good fruit cake. Now we just need to do a taste test!
These were very popular last year so I’m hoping to try one before they all sell out.
Like a classic Christmas pudding you’ll find it filled with vine fruits, spiced rum, glace cherries, cinnamon and ginger and of course, a boozy kick of rum.
I can’t seem to find these pumpkin spice cupcakes online but they’re still in my local store.
So, instead let me tell you about these. A box of 4 ginger spiced cupcakes topped with vanilla flavour frosting and decorated with gold shimmer sugar and gingerbread sugar plaque.
The Wicked Kitchen cupcakes are always good in my opinion. They’re sweet but not sickly, the frosting is delicious and the sponge is moist.
I’m a big fan of the Oggs brand and you can find them in most supermarkets. I always enjoy their cupcakes and cakes but I’m yet to try their mince pies.
These vegan mince pies are filled with spiced mincemeat, laced with brandy and topped with pastry. They sound like they have really good potential.
Tesco own brand, Plant Chef mince pies are a little more affordable than other brands at just £1.50 for a box of 6.
These mince pies are filled with spiced mincemeat in a shortcrust pastry case.
