Y = contains; M = May contain; N = doesn't contain.

*Our oats are tested at a UKAS accredited lab and certified to be less than 10ppm gluten.

**May contain traces of milk as milk is handled on the production site of the chocolate.

***We follow the Vegan Society guidance on the declaration of allergens and the vegan status of our products.

****All products are produced in a bakery that handles egg, milk, peanuts, nuts (almonds, hazelnut, pecans, pistachios, cashews), and ingredients containing soya and and ingredients containing sulphites.

***** In November 2017 we launched a new cake baked with roasted peanuts. We have therefore introduced peanuts into our production areas. As with other allergens that we already handle, every care is taken to ensure that contamination of peanut free products does not take place, however, peanuts will still be used on the same line as peanut free products and therefore we cannot guarantee that no contamination will occur. Due to this, our advisory allergen statement going forward is “may contain nuts and traces of peanut”. Here at Honeybuns we operate to very strict allergen control procedures, full details of which we are happy to provide upon request. We have amended the above allergen table to reflect this. 

None of our products contain the following: crustaceans, fish, molluscs, lupin flour or seeds, celery, mustard, sesame seeds or any derivatives thereof. 

The caramel in the Chocolate Caramel Shortbread and honeycomb pieces on our Cinder Toffee Brownie traybake contain RSPO certified sustainable palm oil.

Vegan - Frequently Asked Questions

Vegan Society registration certificate for Honeybuns vegan friendly cakes and traybakes

Q: Are you approved by the Vegan Society?
A: All our vegan cakes are registered with the Vegan Society. The Vegan Society licence enables us to display their logo on our vegan products. This is a voluntary decision for individual food companies to make. We feel it will reassure vegans at a glance that they can enjoy our products. Please read more information about the Vegan Society criteria.

Q: On some of your vegan cakes and traybakes, it states it is vegan on the labelling but there “may be traces of dairy”. Can you please advise?
A: These cakes and traybakes have no added dairy in them. Our chocolate supplier states there is a possibility of traces of dairy owing to the fact they handle dairy chocolate in the same factory. As milk is an allergen we need to state this on the packaging. Having possible traces of dairy does not preclude a product from being vegan, please read the Vegan Society guidance. These are therefore not suitable for dairy allergy sufferers.

Q: What vegan products do you make?
A: Above is our Allergen and Shelf Life table with details of which of our cakes are vegan. We have plans to extend this range.

We also make bespoke vegan traybakes for trade.

The following 4 vegan traybakes are exclusive to Bidfood:
Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel Brownie traybake
Cinnamon and Sultana Granola Bar traybake
Apple Crumble Bar traybake
Persian Flapjack traybake

and these two are made exclusively for Brakes Foodservice:
Chocolate, Orange and Pecan traybake
Cinder Toffee Brownie traybake 

Q: How can I buy them?
A: Either directly from Honeybuns online shop, and some are available in John Lewis and Waitrose. The Bidfood and Brakes traybakes are available from cafes and restaurants throughout the UK.  For trade enquiries, please do get in touch with us for details of a wholesaler.  

Q: Are your vegan products healthy?
A: We make lovely indulgent treats using no nonsense store cupboard ingredients. They also happen to be vegan, gluten free and most of them are dairy free (some may contain traces of milk). They are still cakes rather than health bars though.
