Joe and Seph's

Joe & Seph’s ( who are set to launch a brand new vegan range with all the indulgent, caramel goodness of their core collection. Joe & Seph’s popcorn is air-popped (not fried) and then hand-coated in all-natural ingredients in London. Since Joe & Seph’s inception, the team have had an increasing number of requests to create a vegan alternative to their traditional caramel flavours; they’ve worked hard to create an equally delicious vegan range for those consumers that have special dietary requirements and don't want to compromise on taste.

Three new additions will be joining Joe & Seph’s cult classics, in both sharing pouch and snack pack form: Vegan Salted Caramel, Joe & Seph’s signature flavour is recreated using a moreish vegan caramel, the perfect combination of sweetness and salt; Vegan Toffee Apple & Cinnamon, a vegan take on one of Joe & Seph’s most popular flavours, it’s a devilishly tasty treat, with an enticing cinnamon aroma, reminiscent of the classic autumnal treat; Vegan Coconut & Cacao, an all-new flavour, especially created for their vegan audience, expect an exotic coconut crunch with a delightfully creamy, chocolate-y finish.

Having spent nine years perfecting the recipe, the Vegan Collection joins an ever-evolving range of Joe & Seph’s innovations. As with all their products, the popcorn is handmade using only the finest natural ingredients, with an unerring attention to quality. Since founding Joe & Seph’s back in 2010 with his wife, Jackie, and sons, Adam and Paul, Joseph Sopher has wanted to create a range that is even more indulgent than the popcorn they’ve become celebrated for. Joseph says, “We’ve wanted to create a vegan range that truly echoed our cult-status series of indulgent popcorn flavours since we began. Never wanting to compromise on taste or ingredients, we’ve finally nailed our new vegan caramel, we can’t wait to bring our popcorn to even more households, and bring Joe & Seph’s back to those who’ve recently chosen to go plant-based.

Whether it’s as a moreish cinema treat, an indulgent end to a dinner party or a tempting snack to go with your round of tea, Joe & Seph’s will be on hand for a satisfying and tasty bite. Find the new Vegan collection at John Lewis Food Hall – Oxford Street, The Vegan Supermarket, La Suite West Hotel, Selfridges, IWOOT, QVC and, with more national stockists to follow soon.

Popcorn Shed 

Trendy gourmet popcorn start-up, Popcorn Shed is delighted to announce the launch of a brand new, innovative mini popcorn, Mini Pop!

MiniPop! ® is different because it uses a white popcorn grain that pops to around ½ the size of regular popcorn but has all the benefits of usual sized popcorn and more!

This makes the kernels small and tender, with a thinner hull than regular popcorns, that break up on popping and virtually disintegrate when chewed. This means they don’t get stuck in your teeth, like regular popcorn does, which improves the eating experience.

Available in five delicious low calorie popular flavours, including Sweet & Salty, Toffee, Salted, Salt & Vinegar and gourmet White Truffle.

The brand new and exclusive mini range is low calorie and the perfect snack to enjoy during the day.

MiniPop!â is the first fully vegan popcorn line in the UK, is gluten free and is easy to digest and, of course, absolutely delicious.

Popcorn Shed’s new MiniPop! range will add to the company’s existing product lines, that centre around fantastic tasting gourmet flavours perfect as a treat or to give as a gift.

We are delighted to be the first to launch Mini popcorn in the UK and to offer our customers a healthy snack that not only tastes great but is kinder to teeth and tummies. Our customers kept asking for a healthy snacking option that was vegan, so we listened. Our NEW MiniPop! range is Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Wholegrain, low in calorie and most importantly delicious!’
