We are delighted to share the news that our Kent Cobnuts are Vegetarian Society Approved. After a number of customers let us know that they buy our cobnuts because they are vegan or vegetarian we thought we would get this officially recognised.
The Vegetarian Society mark is only licensed to those products that meet the Vegetarian Society's strict criteria, which means it can provide real confidence to the consumer. It is also the only vegetarian trademark that is legally governed by a licence agreement.
As a fresh natural product Kent cobnuts are an excellent vegetarian and vegan friendly source of protein, vitamins and natural fats. They are very versatile and can be used in a range of dishes from a nut roast to an apple crumble. Importantly they are also a brilliant healthy snack, a hand full of cobnuts is a great 'swap' for chocolate bars and other less healthy options.
A drier cobnut (available later in the season when the husk is brown) has a more natural sweetness. While a green cobnut (available early season) has a real freshness similar in someways to a coconut but slightly more mellow and definitely without the 'love/ hate' taste.
We look forward to sharing our love for the cobnut and hope to run a number of competitions with The Vegetarian Society.
