Victoria Bryceson is founder of Vegan Events UK and the animal welfare and education charity Miracle’s Mission. She turned vegan at a very early age and is passionate about advocating for a cruelty-free lifestyle and helping animals in need around the world.
She currently manages rescue, neutering, rehabilitation, rehoming, and education programs in Malaysia and Egypt. Plus, she runs more than 20 vegan events each year in the United Kingdom.
With such an extensive vegan history, Victoria knows a thing or two about leading a vegan lifestyle. We asked her what her top 10 vegan products were. Here’s what she recommended.
If you ever have a meat craving, these are the hot dogs to eat. I’ve seen many nonvegans eat these and not even realize they’re not an animal product! They’re that realistic. I love that even if you think you can’t go vegan because you’ll miss the taste and texture of meat, one of these might just change your mind. You can buy them here.
You wouldn’t know these cakes were vegan if I didn’t tell you. They’re the ultimate vegan advert. Their cakes are so spectacular and are made into vegan versions of classics, such as lemon meringue pie, trifle, and cream doughnuts. These are truly a testament that vegans needn’t miss out on anything.
This cheese literally changed my life. It made me enjoy my diet again after giving up dairy cheese. It tastes and melts so much like dairy cheese. It’s the perfect replacement for people who think they can’t live without the animal version. Their range of flavors is also great, and the cheese is even palm oil-free.
This chocolate is raw, so it’s a healthier version of the traditional sweet treat. It’s such a close texture in its creaminess to dairy chocolate, which is really hard to find in vegan chocolate. Again, it’s also palm oil-free. You can find it here.
This company offers comfortable, interesting designs. And if you find one you love, you can get it in a huge range of colors. Their clothing is all ethically handmade and run by a couple who are working hard to promote veganism to the rest of the world. I love their newest Christmas sweater with the slogan “Eat Tofu Not Turkey.”
It’s so hard to find an alcoholic cider from a fully vegan company. This is a huge reason why I love this particular brand. But it also tastes absolutely delicious, and their range is really wide with a good choice of flavors.
This is the perfect moisturizer and makeup base coat. It’s really great to use on normal or damaged skin, and even has a number of other uses. An unexpected one? It’s extremely effective on dogs with skin problems.
I like to give my dogs vegan treats, and this vegan dog food is a great option. The company’s range of treats and chews is exceptional, so my pups never get bored. The company also regularly brings out new products for my little angels to try, which is very exciting. You can find it here.
These yogurts are vegan, soy-free, and come in a range of delicious flavors. They’re also from a fully vegan company. I can also easily find these yogurts at supermarkets in the U.K., meaning I can buy them whenever I like and have a choice of flavors.
These are some of the most amazing candles you’ll ever smell. With a huge range of different options, there’s something for just about everyone. Their style of creating candles with real-life scents — like cut grass and lemon cheesecake — is truly incredible.
