Look at them. Just look at them.
Delicious little bundles of love. Oh my, they were worth the wait.
Thanks to Rach (http://www.vanillasugarblog.blogspot.com/) for the tip off, I went in search of vegan croissants. After a brief, blind panic Mr T found them in the chillers; tubes and tubes of croissanty goodness!
This is what you need to be looking out for, and you can find them in your nearest Aldi:
They come as a rolled up tube of pastry, slice along the edges which are partially cut, roll them up and pop them in the oven for 15 minutes. Brilliant. They aren't exactly how I remember fresh croissants, but the insides are buttery, warm croissant dough and the outsides are golden flaky goodness. So no complaints, I could eat ten tubes in one go.
89p a tube.
