I've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this month's The Vegan Kind box as I'm currently participating in Veganuary, so I couldn't wait to get stuck in when it turned up a couple of days ago.
January's TVK box features some interesting new-to-me brands, alongside some old favourites of mine, and there's a really good mix of products included. Here's what was inside:-
Nina's Popcorn in Cacao, Goji Berries & Pistachios (30g, RRP £1.99)
How beautiful is the packaging for this popcorn?! I could totally see this being included in a FROW goody bag at London Fashion Week. This is a seriously luxe popcorn - it's 100% natural, hand-popped in coconut oil in artisan kettles, and lightly coated with a hint of maple syrup, cacao, goji berries and pistachios. Needless to say, it's utterly delicious! Gluten, wheat, dairy and refined sugar-free.
YumEarth Sour Jelly Beans (RRP £3.50)
The surprise find for me this month are definitely these sour jelly beans, and I'm slightly ashamed to admit that the bag is already half empty (or rather #sorrynotsorry!). Oddly enough though, I HATE jelly beans, but I love anything sour, and these are just amazing. They have a much nicer texture than traditional jelly beans which is one of the reasons why I like them so much, but they also only use natural flavours and fruit juices, plus they contain Vitamin C, and are free from all 14 common allergens such as nuts and soya. These are crazy addictive - will definitely be ordering more soon!
Yushoi Snapea Rice Sticks in Sweet Chilli & Lemon (105g, RRP £1.79)
There's always a bag or two of these in the cupboard in my house - I love them and so does everyone else! If you haven't tried them, they're basically a healthier alternative to crisps as they're made using a combination of rice and green peas, and are baked instead of being fried. They've got a satisfying crunch and always fill a gap when I'm looking for a savoury snack.
Rebel Kitchen Banana Mylk (200ml, RRP £1.10)
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen that I recently posted about my love for Rebel Kitchen's Chocolate Mylk which is by far the best dairy-free chocolate milk that I've ever tried. Their drinks are made with just simple natural ingredients, and the coconut milk base is deliciously creamy without being too heavy as it's also blended with spring water. This Banana Mylk flavour was good and I'm not the biggest fan of bananas!
TPlus Drinks Multivitamin Enriched Smarter Teas (sample pillow pack of 4)
It's fair to say that flavoured green teas are a lot more palatable than regular green tea, so I'm always looking out for new brands to try. These samples from TPlus Drinks are enhanced with botanicals, natural flavourings and vitamins for a 'nutrient dense' healthier tea - I tried the Immunintea one this morning and really enjoyed it.
The Vegan Kind Badge Pack (4 badges, RRP £3.50)
A pack of badges with different vegan slogans - #avocadogoals has already been pinned onto my gym bag :)
Conscious Chocolate Orange Raw Chocolate Mini Bar (15g, RRP £0.80)
It's always such a treat to find something from Conscious Chocolate, and this Chocolate Orange raw bar is simply divine! It's hand-made, raw, certified organic and vegan. I don't know how they make it so creamy/milky, but it's one of the best dairy-free chocolate brands out there.
At the bottom of the box, I also found this month's recipe card for a Roasted Butternut, Sage and Chilli Soup, and 10p from every box sold during January will be donated to Veganuary.
