the UK 100

There have been a lot of local versions of the Vegan 100 list floating around- for example, the NYC 100 and the Portland 100. I've wanted to play along, but there is no Syracuse 100! So instead, I decided to take this UK 100 list posted by Liz and try my hand at it- after all, I did live in England for a few months! I'm curious to see how I do. If you've lived in the UK, or have visited, or are just an Anglophile (Britophile?), why not play along?

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:
1) Copy this list into your own blog, including these instructions.

2) Bold all the items you’ve eaten.

3) Cross out any items that you would never consider eating.

4) Post a comment here once you’ve finished and link your post back to this one.
5) Pass it on!

All items on the list refer to the vegan version.
Please don’t contact me to tell me that butter isn’t vegan, for example. I mean a vegan version of it!

Hobnobs roast parsnips? Are those two separate things? Or is there a Parsnip Flavour Hobnob?!

I'm thinking of making a parsnip cake this weekend.

KathyF- sorry, typo! Fixed... I don't know how I'd feel about parsnip hobnobs...

Forty - but I have eaten way more in the non-vegan versions, since I was omni most the time I lived in the UK. Others I had homemade but not at the restaurants mentioned here.

Now I am hungry for roast parsnips!

I'll be back in the UK in March, if all goes well, maybe this list should come with me!
