Veganism is becoming much more popular but for those not following a plant-based diet, it can be hard to get your head around.

Still, most people understand that its basically about not eating anything produced by animals, right?

Well, it seems that a surprising number of people thought goats milk was vegan.

The study, of 2,004 UK adults by meal kit company HelloFresh, found one fifth thought that just because goats milk isnt from cows, it was suitable for vegans.

And its not just older people who dont understand the move towards veganism – 20% of 18-34 year-olds thought vegans can consume eggs.

The study looked into how much Brits know about where their food comes from.

One in 10 adults are under the impression that tofu is a type of mushroom, while a fifth mistakenly think veal comes from a deer – rather than a calf.

11% of those asked think tea is grown in the UK when most of it is shipped from Asia and 4.2% thought bacon comes from cows.

The study also revealed that half of those asked would struggle to cook basic meals like smashed avocado on toast, lasagne or a basic curry.

And 22% are unable to put together a traditional Sunday roast – with 10% of those saying theyve no intention of learning.

HelloFresh head chef Andre Dupin said: Its surprising to see that some of the most popular foods, as well as things that Brits have always held dear to them, are difficult for people to cook from scratch and they struggle with knowing where its from or when its in season.

We found that 61% of Brits didnt know how to cook the national favourite, chicken tikka masala.

Gingerbread houses are so last year.

That is if youre a chocolate fan, and instead want to opt for a Cadbury Chocolate Cottage kit instead.

The kit has been brought out for 2019 and has everything you need to make your very own house of chocolate (then see how long it lasts before you eat it).

It includes the limited edition Cadbury with gingerbread bars – so you can still get your Christmassy fix – which make up the front and back walls.

You then melt offcuts of Dairy Milk to use as cement, and then use standard Dairy Milk bars for the other walls.

For the roof, youll have the Winter Wonderland bars, which feature little Christmas trees of white and milk chocolate, a Flake for the top, and white chocolate Buttons for decoration.

The kit costs £16, but youll have to provide your own icing to make it look exactly like the pictures. Were sure youll want a little extra for dusting too, of course.

Its proven so popular in the day that its been out that the confectionery company are already having to restock it. That should be done tomorrow (18 September), but youll likely want to snap it up quickly.

You can get yours on the Cadbury website.

You may think that its a little early to be thinking of the festive season, but stores like Sainsburys have already stocked up on mince pies and Christmas pudding.

It may also be worth pre-planning your chocolate intake, given some of the most Read More – Source

But… coffee is wet? (Picture: Getty)

Coffee. It can be tall, short, extra hot, iced – there are almost endless variations for the perfect coffee order. But I think one thing we can all agree on is that coffee is wet.

Its a liquid. So its wet. Why then is it possible to order a dry cappuccino? And what on earth does that even mean?

We all love a pretentious coffee order. Dont pretend it doesnt make you feel alive to order an extra-hot-oat-milk-vanilla-babylatte-with-extra-foam.

But ordering a dry cappuccino will take you to the next level and will be sure to impress even the snarkiest barista in your local coffee shop.

So its pretty simple. A dry cappuccino has less steamed milk and a thicker layer of foamed milk than a regular cappuccino. Thats it. It has the same amount of actual coffee, and the same amount of milk – just the proportions of steamed milk and foam are different.

On the other side of the scale is the wet cappuccino. Not to be confused with the regular cappuccino.

A wet cappuccino has more steamed milk than a regular or a dry cappuccino, and just a thin layer of foamed milk on the top.

What we can glean from this information is that the dryness to wetness scale seems wholly dependent on the proportion of steamed milk. The more steamed milk – the wetter your cappuccino.

Simple. But do these cappuccino variations actually taste any different? Theres only one way to find out. Order them all and spend the rest of the day trying desperately to control your caffeine tremors.

And remember, cappuccinos arent the first drink to claim to operate on a sliding scale of wetness. If white wine can be dry then so can our coffee, dammit.
