#TVK28

Another month, another yummy box from The Vegan Kind!


February's box contained:

eat chic Box of Two Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
Chikas Sea Salt and Black Pepper Cashews
Ombar Centres Coconut & Vanilla
Ten Acre Sour Cream and Chive Popcorn
Human+Kind Grapefruit Shampoo and Body Wash
TG Green Teabags

Chocolate and snacks are a great way to my heart!

Snack Time!

eat chic Box of Two Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups



I love it when I get eat chic chocolates in my TVK boxes. They are amazing. This artisan chocolatier is based in East London and makes the most gorgeous but butter cups I have ever had. These ones were filled with coconut peanut butter and topped with toasted coconut... YUM! I think I'm going to have to go on a mission to try all the flavours...

Chikas Sea Salt and Black Pepper Cashews




Chika's is another brand that I've tried before. I tried their plantain chips from one of the boxes and didn't like them, so they sent me some smoked almonds which were ace! These cashews are just as good and perfect for a mid morning snack.

Ombar Centres Coconut & Vanilla



Dodgy phone flash photo alert!
I love Ombar. Their chocolate is all the right kinds of sweet and creamy while still being somewhat good for you. I snapped up one of these new "centres" bars as soon as I saw it in my local health food shop so was very happy to get one in this month's box. It is made up of a creamy coconut and vanilla filling, coated in their lovely 60% chocolate. This bar is very melt-in-the-mouth (and was gone very quickly!)

Ten Acre Sour Cream and Chive Popcorn




I am yet to find a flavour from Ten Acre that I don't like. This popcorn reminded me of what I remember cream cheese and chive pringles tasting like - but with a hint of sweetness. I'd definitely eat these again!

Human+Kind Grapefruit Shampoo and Body Wash



I'm usually pretty skeptical about products that claim to be 2-in-1. How can one product be the best choice for two jobs? But I gave this a go as both the body wash and shampoo that it claims to be and was pleasantly surprised. It smells lush, and actually left my hair feeling great. Maybe I'll have to curb my 2-in-1 skepticism from now on!

TG Green Teabags



I don't like green teat so I've donated these to Mr Hatter - but he has yet to try them. He was excited about the prospect of green tea in pyramid bags though!


The recipe card this month is another lovely looking one from Bit Of The Good Stuff - Creamy Coconut Dhal with Butternut Squash. Sounds like a great winter warmer!


This month's charity is C-A-L-F Animal Sanctuary, who I've been following on Facebook for a while now. They are currently looking for a new home as their tenancy at the current location hasn't been renewed, so it's great that 10p from each box will be going to them this month. They also have a donation page here if you feel like giving them a helping hand.
