Maryland cookies, a brand of Burton’s Biscuits, are one of the leading producers of cookie style biscuits. Burton’s are the company behind Jammie Dodgers who also changed the recipe last year to become vegan-friendly.
Many biscuits are classed as accidentally vegan such as many bourbon biscuit brands, some filled wafers, Tesco Dark Chocolate Digestives and Oreo’s.
Several budget stores such as Home Bargains and Iceland/The Food Warehouse also stock the Hill Biscuit brand which produces many accidentally vegan biscuit options, most notably, the Digestive Creams (150g). These make a great substitute for custard creams which normally contain milk.
Hill Biscuits, established in 1855, also produce vegan-friendly cream biscuits in Chocolate, Orange, Lemon and Chocolate Orange flavours. All are available in 150g packs and are often included in multibuy deals. Although the Strawberry and Custard versions are not suitable.
