Wow. I can't believe we're up to box 12 of The Vegan Kind's monthly subscription boxes already! (I also can't believe how long it's taken me to getting around to writing this blog post.. it's nearly time for the next box!)

This month's box was another good one:

1. Angelic Gluten Free Double  Chocolate Cookies
2. Howdah Onion Bhajis
3. Premae Skincare Triumph Creme Balm
4. Landgarten Organic Dark Chocolate Covered Raspberries
5. Nom Organic Oat Bar

1. Angelic Gluten Free Double  Chocolate Cookies

These cookies are vegan and gluten free - but they don't taste gluten free! Even Mr Hatter approved (and he can be picky about things like that). Very tasty!

2. Howdah Onion Bhajis

Howdah produce tasty snacks using locally sourced ingredients - and I must say these were very tasty! These are the second snacks I've tried from Howdah (I got the Bombay Puri from Vegan Tuck Box) and they were both great!

3. Premae Skincare Triumph Creme Balm

This little sample is a vitamin enriched moisturiser which is fragranced with Frankincense. The full sized product costs £51 ! I must admit, I'm skeptical when it comes to expensive moisturisers but this little pot has left my skin feeling lovely and smooth - and it smells lush!

4. Landgarten Organic Dark Chocolate Covered Raspberries

I am a huge fan of Landgarten snacks but I was hesitant to try these as I have a bit of a thing about freeze-dried fruit. I think it's the texture I don't get on with. However, I was pleasantly surprised by these. They had a lovely sharp taste which distracted me from the texture, and Landgarten's chocolate coating is always so smooth. Yum!

5. Nom Organic Oat Bar

This was beautiful. It was just the right level of coconut vs oat, and was a great filling snack. I would definitely buy this if I was out and about and in need of a pick-me-up.

The charity of the month was Manchester & Cheshire Dogs' Home, after the tragic fire that happened there recently.

And this month's recipe is from Little Miss Meat Free and is for "Ombre Vanilla Dream Cake". It looks so beautiful - I think I'm going to have to have a go at making it. It even won this year's Great Vegan Bake Off that was hosted by PETA!

If you like what you've seen, you can subscribe to your own monthly box here for a cost of £10 per month plus shipping.


  1. So much deliciousness! Everything looks great - what a fun package to come home to :)
