Are McVities Digestive Biscuits Vegan?

No, McVities digestive biscuits are not vegan.

Jennie from the UK, recently asked if McVities digestive biscuits were vegan.

It seems she’s making a cheesecake (vegan I presume) and is looking for something to make a cookie crumb crust.

I suggest Newman O’s, or some Midel Vanilla Snaps, but to be honest I’m not sure if either product is sold in the UK.

Anyone out there know?

    1. @Jonny, these contain skim milk. Check the ingredients, unless I have outdated information.

      1. Certain mcV is vegan. You read the ingredients list before u make third hand outlandish claims by 2nd hand ppl.

  1. Nope, never heard of those products in the motherland.

    Ginger Nuts are usually vegan, especially the supermarket own brand ones and give a nice gingery twist to the cheesecake base.

    Enjoy!

    1. I have a packet in the cupboard. No milk or animal based ingredients in them. The chocolate ones (both plain and milk) have milk in though.
