In celebration of its 15th anniversary, Leon is launching its biggest vegan offering yet.

The brand, known for its healthier approach to fast food, has introduced seven new items, including the pièce de résistance: pulled jackfruit nuggets coated in a gluten-free crumb, dubbed Jack Wings.

But whats a wing without some dip?

You can either go with aioli or try Thoms BBQ sauce, both of which are, of course, vegan.

Other treats include the Raspberry and Rose Donut, as well as the Coco Whip, a vegan version of the classic 99p Flake, made from a dairy-free coconut soft serve in four flavours.

Except it costs a bit more, at £2.65.

Choose from caramel and cacao, chocolate ruby ripple, passionfruit or lemongrass and pomegranate.
