The Smokey Bacon flavour of Pringles has ticks on the container saying that it is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans, meaning that in actual fact, it contains no animal products at all.

Yet many more products that seem vege-friendly (e.g. flavours of baked beans) sneak things like bacon into their ingredients.

The 21st century is a very, very strange place.

Although I am rather partial to the odd bacon butty every now and again (mostly when nuring colleagues dash for a breakfast run and eat them in front of me) one vege food that's better than the original is sausages.

Vege sausages are far far more pleasant and tasty than grotty meat ones, full of dubious chewy bits.

That's true. The vege sausage has come a LONG way in the past ten years, and is now a much safer and tastier option than its "mystery meat" counterpart. :)

I can't in good conscience eat something "bacon flavoured", even though it doesn't actually have any meat in it. Ewww!

Vege sausages, I don't know if we have those here! I'll have to look for them next time I'm doing groceries! I eat veggie burgers and veggie sandwich slices, but I've never seen veg sausages!
