TVK 13 - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

It was The Vegan Kind's first birthday on 1st November this year - this past year has flown by, helped along by so many beautiful boxes! This month's was no exception.



There was...

1. Considerit Salted Caramel
2. The Primal Kitchen Coconut & Macadamia Paleo Bar
3. Rebel Kitchen Orange Choc Mylk
4. Organic Surge Awakening Shower Gel
5. Ten Acre How Chicken Soup Saved The Day Crisps
6. Quinola Mothergrain Express Quinoa

1. Considerit Salted Caramel

I've tried a few items from Considerit Chocolate before and have loved all of them. I'm so excited about this product, but I've not tried it yet! I'm trying to find the perfect thing to have it on/with so that I don't waste it and it's driving me crazy!

2. The Primal Kitchen Coconut & Macadamia Paleo Bar


The Primal Kitchen is a business that has emerged this year, and which I've seen a few times before. I was expecting another snack bar along the lines of Nakd/Beond, but this was somehow so different! It had a smooth and creamy taste - which I put down to the macadamia nuts - and it was yummy. Each bar contains no more than 5 ingredients, all of which fit into the Paleo diet. I would recommend this!

3. Rebel Kitchen Orange Choc Mylk

Rebel Kitchen is another company which I have encountered before, but I had not tried this flavour. I love chocolate orange, and was expecting chocolate mylk with a hint of orange... but it was full on chocolate-orange flavour! Yay! Very impressed!

4. Organic Surge Awakening Shower Gel

This shower gel smells lush and left my skin feeling lovely and soft. It combines a unique complex of naturally derived ingredients - great!

5. Ten Acre How Chicken Soup Saved The Day Crisps

I love the names that Ten Acre give their crisps, they tell a bit of a story! I was never a huge fan of chicken crisps, but Mr Hatter assures me that these do taste like chicken soup. They were nice and went well with our weekend sandwiches! This is a brand that I would be happy to try any flavour from, as they seem to get them all spot on.

6. Quinola Mothergrain Express Quinoa

I've not tried this yet as I am planning to use it in a salad one day in the next few weeks but it looks tasty. And the easy-to-use pre-cooked quinoa is a great idea for those of us who are a bit nervous about cooking quinoa. (I can never seem to get it quite right...)

This month's charity is Dr Hadwen Trust, who specialise in non-animal medical testing. These guys do a lot of great work, so I'm glad they're getting the 10p from my box this month!

The recipe this month looks beautiful and I think I will have to try it (especially with the weather being so cold at the moment) - Pumpkin Spiced Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate from The Vegan Cookie  Fairy!
