Whether you’re currently a vegan, are thinking about becoming vegan, or are simply curious to see what new animal-free products are out there, The Vegan Kind is an exciting subscription box for those who want to find out more! Their monthly lifestyle box includes 5-8 products, all of which are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. As it’s a lifestyle box, you can expect to receive a variety of products including food, drink, beauty, toiletries, household items etc, and I really enjoy discovering new products in these areas.
March’s The Vegan Kind box was delivered recently, and as always, everything arrived in perfect condition. Let’s take a closer look at all the amazing vegan goodies!
Considerit Chocolate Creme Egg (RRP £2)
You can’t have a March box without some reference to Easter, and this month, The Vegan Kind have included a vegan creme egg from Considerit – yes, you read that right, a VEGAN creme egg! Featuring hand-tempered Belgian chocolate and a gooey white and yellow fondant filling, if I hadn’t told you that it was vegan, I don’t think you would realise based on taste alone – it’s very realistic and similar to the real thing!
Punku Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies (RRP £4.99)
I love cooking with Quinoa, but this is the first time that I’ve tried Quinoa Cookies. Made in Bolivia using the country’s famous locally produced Royal Quinoa flour, these individually wrapped cookies are free from Gluten, Soya, Wheat, Dairy and Eggs, making them an ideal baked treat for many people to enjoy. They have a crispy texture and are studded with Dark Chocolate chips and Chia Seeds – they’re really good and perfect with a cuppa! Best of all, Punku support and develop education and health programmes for their employees which helps to sustain Bolivian communities who depend on Quinoa as their main source of income – this is particularly important as Bolivia are one of the poorest countries in Latin America, so I’m more than happy to support this.
Fuel 10K Chocolate Peanut Butter (RRP £2.39)
This is a brand new product from Fuel 10K, and this large pouch contains a silky smooth Peanut Butter which has been blended with Cocoa for an indulgent, protein-packed addition to your daily breakfast. Made with just a handful of natural ingredients (Roasted Peanuts, Coconut Sugar, Cocoa Powder and Sea Salt), this Peanut Butter is lovely and smooth, and is also free from Palm Oil. You can drizzle it over just about anything, but so far I’ve tried it over Porridge, Cereal, Toast and squeezed a little into Smoothies too – it’s delicious every way!
Mr. Organic Garlic Mayo (RRP £2.79)
This creamy and delicious Garlic Mayo is the newest addition to Mr. Organic’s range of egg-free and vegan-friendly mayonnaises. It has 30% less fat than conventional mayo and can be used in Sandwiches or as a tasty dip for Chips. I even like mixing a little with some Chilli Sauce to make a special topping for Burgers – it’s so tasty and the subtle Garlic flavour makes it even more yummy and versatile. A brilliant product to have in your fridge.
Ecodenta Cosmos Organic Anti-Plaque Toothpaste with Coconut and Zinc Salt (RRP £4.99)
I’ve only recently started to use natural toothpaste so this has arrived at just the right time for me to try out – thanks The Vegan Kind! Made by Ecodenta, this organic toothpaste features anti-bacterial Coconut Oil which is also known as a popular natural tooth whitener and breath freshener, as well as the key active ingredient of Zinc Salt which has further anti-bacterial properties to help break down bacteria colonies on the surface of the teeth, thus reducing the formulation of new plaque. The natural ingredients help to remove dental plaque and prevent interdental tartar from forming, plus there’s Xylitol included which is known by its re-mineralisation of tooth enamel stimulating properties.
TREK Toffee Triumph Protein Energy Chunks (RRP £1.35)
Next up, I found a snack bag from TREK and these are their new Protein Energy Chunks in the flavour Toffee Triumph. I’m a big fan of TREK bars, and these chunks are just as good as they’re bite-sized pieces of cold-pressed wholefoods and feature a mix of Fruit, Nuts, Oats and Crunchy bits. I really like the Toffee flavour of these and each bag boats a whopping 12g of plant-based protein which makes it perfect as a post-gym/workout treat.
Super Moons Salt and Vinegar Crunchy Lentil Puffs (RRP £0.80)
The last product in this month’s box is bag of Super Moons, which are made by the same people behind Hectares Sweet Potato Crisps. Super Moons are small savoury balls that are made from Maize, Whole Green Lentils and Rice, for a healthier snack alternative to mainstream crisps. This Salt and Vinegar flavour is super moreish and it makes an ideal companion to a sandwich or quick work lunch. Only 83 calories a bag and gluten-free too.
At the bottom of the box, I also found a recipe card for Easter Sandwich Biscuits and 10p from every box sold this month will be donated to Sneha’s Care, one of the largest animal welfare charities in Nepal.
