It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...

I decided to join the Vegan Package Swap for November, as they were doing their Christmas-themed swap a month early to avoid any postal service related issues. I was not disappointed!

This month, I was paired with someone from Australia, which was super exciting! I had no idea what to expect...

The first thing I tried was a chocolate santa, made by Sweet William, because who can resist a chocolate santa?! They were lovely and creamy with a great taste.

The dark chocolate cranberries were also very festive and not what I expected! For some reason, I was expecting freeze-dried cranberries, but they were lovely and juicy inside their dark chocolate shells.

The Anzac biscuits (in the brown box) are apparently a classic Australian biscuit, and after looking them up online it seems they are often associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). However, it sounds like the biscuits traditionally sent to the soldiers were a little different to the popular Anzac biscuits in the shops. I was very impressed with their coconutty deliciousness and crunchy texture. These ones were even gluten-free but you wouldn't be able to tell!

You can't see it that well in the photo of the box, and I didn't get another photo as I ate it at work, but one of the chocolate bars was a "peanut slab" by Whittaker's. I had no idea what this was going to be... It was literally a slab of chocolate studded with peanuts. It was very good! Apparently it is a famous New Zealand chocolate bar, and I can see why!

The teeny weeny tub of Australian peanut butter was so cute! It tasted great too - really creamy and not too much mouth-stickiness after eating.

The Loving Earth "luvju" bar I received was turkish delight flavour! This is apparently the most popular vegan chocolate brand in Australia, and this is a new flavour. It was tasty, and it looks like they have a fantastic range on their website.

I've not tried the coconut soap yet but it smells beautiful - again, my weakness for coconut comes into play...

This is definitely one of the best boxes I've had so far - I loved it!
