#TVK30 & #TVK31

I'm a little behind on my blogs (again), so I thought I'd combine my two outstanding reviews for The Vegan Kind into one post.

#TVK30 contained a nice selection of items - all the edibles were eaten pretty quickly!

Vego Vegolino Pralines
Eat Real Chilli and Lemon Hummus Chips
BakedIn Belgian Chocolate Mug Brownie Mix
Humblestuff Lemon Myrtle Multi Surface Cleaning Spray
Clearspring Tamari Roasted Soybeans with Tomato and Herb
Greedie Goddess Mango Passion & Carrot Smoothie Bites

The recipe of the month was for some delicious-looking cashew cream cheese, by The Tofu Diaries. The charity of the month was Teen Vgn, who provide support for young vegans. I wish they'd been around when I was a teenager!

Vego Vegolino Pralines

Oh my goodness, these are amazing. I love Vego bars and these bites of tasty praline are even better. The only problem is they disappear too quickly! If you like nutty chocotaley goodness, you need to go out and find some of these now!

Eat Real Chilli and Lemon Hummus Chips

We've bought Eat Real's Hummus Chips on various occasions and in various flavours, and they never disappoint. They have that satisfying crunch of a regular crisp but with the added benefit of being healthier! They also do some lovely Lentil Chips.

BakedIn Belgian Chocolate Mug Brownie Mix

This was tasty, although it didn't come out very pretty - hence no photos of the brownie itself! It's not something I would buy but it's great for people who don't like to bake, or who want a quick pudding.

Humblestuff Lemon Myrtle Multi Surface Cleaning Spray

I've not tried this yet, but I'm always on the lookout for new cruelty free cleaning products, so it's great when The Vegan Kind send them to me!

Clearspring Tamari Roasted Soybeans with Tomato and Herb

Mr Hatter took these to work with him, and said that they were a great snack. I didn't expect anything less from Clearspring!

Greedie Goddess Mango Passion & Carrot Smoothie Bites

I was a bit skeptical about these, as I don't really like the texture of freeze-dried fruit but I actually really enjoyed them! The flavour was great, and although the texture was odd, it wasn't unpleasant.

#TVK31 also contained a great selection of products:

Conscious Chocolate Mint Hint Organic Raw Chocolate
The Jealous Life Tropical Wonder Sweets
TAPPED Birch Water with Bilberry & Lingonberry
Popchips Sea Salt and Vinegar flavour
Friendly Soap Cocoa Butter Facial Cleansing Bar
Creative Nature Peanut Protein Bar

The recipe of the month was for Fruity Summer Water by My Fruity Kitchen and looks great. The charity was Teen Vgn's Summer Camp, which is "the UK's first and only Vegan Summer Camp for 11-17 year olds" - amazing!

Conscious Chocolate Mint Hint Organic Raw Chocolate

I don't like mint chocolate, so Mr Hatter had this one all to himself. He thought the flavour was good, but he's not really a fan of raw chocolate so wouldn't buy it himself.

The Jealous Life Tropical Wonder Sweets

These jelly sweets were tasty, with a great texture. We've had some sweets from this company before and I would buy from them again!

TAPPED Birch Water with Bilberry & Lingonberry

I'm not a fan of flavoured water type drinks - I'd rather have water or juice than something in the middle. So instead of risking not liking this and wasting it, I made a smoothie with it! I threw together the Birch Water, some frozen raspberries, a banana, some vegan protein powder and a bit of green tea extract. It was very fruity and very tasty!

Popchips Sea Salt and Vinegar flavour

I love Popchips, they're a great snack and you can find them all over the place. This flavour has to be one of my favourites - I love vinegar!

Friendly Soap Cocoa Butter Facial Cleansing Bar

I've not tried this one yet as I still have an open face wash pot from Lush, but I'm looking forward to trying it. Cocoa Butter is meant to be really good for the skin, so I'm hoping it will keep my skin in good condition over the summer.

Creative Nature Peanut Protein Bar

I always enjoy trying new flavours from Creative Nature, and this was no exception. It had a great flavour and texture, and a nice hit of protein!
