Cobs Bread is making the purchasing of plant-based items from their bakeries easy and exciting. They are providing ease by clearly labelling, in-store and online (search plant based) which items are suitable for vegans and there is a surprising choice. Also, they are providing motivation, by advertising on Insta and elsewhere, their latest vegan item, Cinnamon Buns!
Now there are quite a few places around Metro Vancouver where you can find vegan Cinnamon Buns and that is a good thing but to get them might require some driving and a plan. With nearly 40 Cobs locations in the Lower Mainland, you are never far from plant based goodies.
So above is a Plant-Based Cinnamon Bun for $3.80, the same price as the regular so a) no vegan tax and b) why would you buy the regular? Admittedly, it is a little squished as it came home in a box jammed in a bag with a bunch of other stuff. This was a great cinnamon bun but not the world record holder. I would buy them again. You can get a 6 pack of minis (healthier if you eat them one at a time and not all at once) for $8.45.
So I came for the Cinnamon Bun but stayed for the Wild Blueberry and Custard Teatime. Hard to imagine custard with no egg but you can search the ingredients. I'm not saying that I know what all the ingredients are (and does anyone really?) but there is no dairy or eggs involved. At only $7, this is not expensive as you can get 6 to 8 servings (or maybe only one). Very tasty and slightly messy but worth it.
We've all had Focaccia and I don't know if it usually is not plant-based? This one was pretty good. With rosemary and sea salt, it was a little crispy but nice and soft on the inside.
There is a lot more to be tried and nice to be able to sort easily what is plant-based without having to quiz the staff. Thanks, Cobs!
