I had a falafel burger somewhere in London just over a decade ago. I haven't been able to find one that nice since.

Asda are doing 5 for £5 on green cuisine and a few other things.

Today I have tried the Goodfellas falafel pizza. Falafel, spinach, pepper and onions with a 'houmous drizzle' on top of a spicy tomato sauce. It doesn't really taste of anything distinctly; it's just a warm and slightly pleasant spicy mush.

I've tried those and was also disappointed. Pleasant spicy mush is about right.

The Pizza Express ones are better, but at five pounds for something quite small, not sparkling good value; they're not frozen with. I must also say that Pizza Express in-restaurant vegan menu/pizzas are absolutely fantastic, but again a lot more expensive.

I accidentally had a vegan pizza from Pizza Hut, I didn't realise the pepperphoni pizza was vegan, and the "cheese" is one of the strangest things I've tasted in quite some time.

Of course you can - and there are definitely some more elaborate pizza recipes that don't have any cheese.

But some of the vegan cheeses actually melt and have the right level of "goo" when cooked, now - particularly the Pizza Express in-restaurant ones (I suspect its a lot to do with their ovens, but also because the melting-cheese recipes are just getting a lot better).

I don't mind veg-sweets but there is a noticeable difference in texture. That doesn't have to be a bad thing if its something juicy like Percy Pig but it's much more chewy, like an edible gum.

If you fancy a cunt-off then think its fucked that vegan options have become much more numerous than gluten free. If I was going to grow a topknot and drink nothing but microbrew I'd set-up a gluten-free restaurant and make a fortune off people who medically can't eat at my competitors. Let them eat cake.

The older I get, the less tolerance for spicy food I have. Crystal hot sauce once tasted too bland and vinegary, but now it tastes alright. Plus, an almost half-litre bottle is £2.20 in my local Arab sklep, which is a bargain.

Kind of close to Tabasco but more flavoursome and less vinegary and watery.

Today I have tried tried Aldi's 'no chicken' nuggets, which are part of their Plant Menu range.

When I broke into the first one I got the unmistakable whiff of a chicken nugget. The first bite tasted vaguely like a chicken nugget, but then it was... nothingness. The rest didn't taste of anything; it was just biting into warm nothingness entombed in breadcrumbs.

I wouldn't recommend these.

Today I have tried the Unbelievabull Burger by The Vegetarian Butcher. It has a pleasant amount of depth and richness to it, considerably better than the ones they make for Burger King. The only drawback is the price; you're usually looking at around £3, possibly a bit more, for a couple of them. I wouldn't say one of these is three times better than a Linda McCartney mozzarella burger.

Peas, broccoli, cheese sauce, pesto, pasta. All the ingredients you need to make cheesy peasy broccoli pesto pasta.

Have them in a curry. Have them in a stew. Have them as a side. Put them in a samosa with mash potato, dill and a bit of spice.

Last night I made some dirty barbecue burgers for me and the Mrs. Hers were veggie with Richmond non-meat burgers. Mine were meat with Morrison's "Ultimate Burger".

I have to hand it to Morrison's. Those burgers were juicy and tremendously flavoursome. It was a real rich, beefy flavour which you often simply don't get in burgers, even gourmet ones. The texture wasn't perfect, but I don't think I ever will find a burger that satisfies me in that regard.

I tried a bite of the Richmond meatless ones, and they weren't half bad actually. Definitely didn't taste quite like a burger, but the texture was surprisingly good. They could do with being bigger though.

For a topping, I fried some diced onions, along with some Linda McCartney meat-free hoi-sin shredded duck. When it was close to done I put a big dollop of Reggae Reggae sauce in to caramelise. I know this sounds like an odd combination, but the richness of the hoi-sin flavouring really goes with the jerk barbecue flavour, and makes a fantastic, near indistinguishable pulled pork substitute.

I had a couple of foods like that as a kid, most of which I now happily like/eat but didn't as a kid. So glad that hitting or persecuting children over their eating habits has fallen out of fashion.

I'm convinced that the Ritter business model accounts for being nice but not giving you too much for your money. This is something at my age I consciously think about when venturing into the chocolate or, more commonly, pastry aisle when I feel I've earned a treat.

If I buy something nice that is in large quantity then I will stuff it in my face in one sitting.
If I buy something okay but in large quantity then it has a chance of sitting in the cupboard for a bit. Like ginger biscuits as opposed to chocolate hobnobs.

So there you have it, ginger biscuits and Ritter Sport, good for you.

These (>>13885) were surprisingly nice. I assumed from the packaging that they came with a bit of sauce but instead it was just chunks in a 'curry marinade' that seemed more-or-less be korma paste. The only grumble I had is that they were rather dense. If I see them again in Farmfoods, particularly for 29p a box, I'll stock up but I have the feeling they're being discontinued.

Talking of stuff that's been discontinued, has anyone seen any Patak's Phal curry sauce jars anywhere? I have a feeling they're not doing them anymore because I haven't seen any in Waitrose, Tesco or Asda. I'll be annoyed if they're not doing them anymore because they were one of the only somewhat hot ones they did.

I don't know why I still get excited over novelty cereal. The Sainsburys offering seems to have a good crunch but tastes exactly the same as the last years Christmas tree cereal i.e. slightly bitter cardboard. This just takes away the magic and probably leads to horrible workplace moral.

It's not hard to do right and a nice little earner if it becomes a tradition. I know I'd pay a premium once every season to have a bit of manchild excitement.

You do:
>Chocolate-Strawberry Hearts
>Honey Easter Bunnies
>Blueberry Boo's
>Chocolate Reindeer Poo
>Baklava Eid-o's
>Diwali popping spheres

As you can see this is as exciting as my weekends get.
