Fancy Plants launches chilled vegan pudding range
New vegan brand, Fancy Plants®, has launched a range of chilled plant-based snacks in the UK. The innovative products arrive at a time of increased consumer demand for functional products, with the promise of “delicious taste and texture, as well as additional nutritional benefits”.
An evolution of The Chia Co. – pioneers of introducing chia to the UK – Fancy Plants is the result of years of exploring the potential of plant-based food as a way to positively contribute to consumer health and wellbeing around the world.
The firm said its innovative new range of puddings are “incredibly full bodied”, with “a rich mouth-feel that no one will believe is plant-based”.
Turning over a new leaf
Fancy Plants Silky Pot™ is the company’s new range of indulgent plant-based puddings available in Chocolate and Chocolate Salted Caramel flavours. Named after its smooth-as-silk texture, every pot also contains prebiotic fibre, which helps support digestive health.
Meanwhile, Fancy Plants Chia Parfait is a delicious cultured coconut milk layered with fruity chia compote – available in ‘Red Berry’ and ‘Mango & Passion Fruit’ flavours. Fancy Plants Chia Parfait is the only plant-based alternative to yoghurt in the UK that contains the nutritional goodness of chia,” its maker claims, with every pot a flavourful source of fibre, omega 3, calcium and vitamin D.
A pudding for people and planet
Fancy Plants CEO and plant-based pioneer, John Foss, started Fancy Plants with one clear goal in mind: “to create delicious plant-based snacks with added nutritional benefits, making it easy for people to eat more plants. We believe the more people we can get to join us on the plant side, the better it is for our health and the health of the planet.”
Fancy Plants partners with global organisation ‘1% for the Planet’, that sees one per cent of sales going back to people and the planet through the work of high-impact, not-for-profit social and environmental groups.
Fancy Plants said that it intends to become a certified B-Corp by the end of 2021, demonstrating the brand’s commitment to creating a business that makes a positive impact for its employees, communities and the environment.
Both Fancy Plants Silky Pot (2 x 80g pots, RRP £2) and Fancy Plants Chia Parfait (1 x 120g pot, RRP £1.80) can now be found in the plant-based section of the convenience aisle at selected Tesco stores across the UK.
