The Vegan Kind Subscription Box - April 2015 #TVK18

The Vegan Kind 18

It's that time of the month again, when my friendly neighbourhood postie brings me my little box of goodies from The Vegan Kind (it obviously doesn't fit in the postbox so my postie has to strategically hide it somewhere in the vicinity of my house every time. This month he left it under an upturned bucket in the yard. Criminal mastermind.)

Soffle's Chilli & Garlic Mild Pitta Chips

Soffle's Chilli & Garlic Mild Pitta Chips

Soffle's Chilli & Garlic Mild Pitta Chips (RRP £1.20 - £1.50)

I'd never heard of Soffle's before but these looked really intriguing in their striking red and white packet. They're baked pitta chips, hand made in London with fresh ingredients. The chilli and garlic ones also come in WILD (as opposed to MILD, get it?) which are apparently much hotter.

These are delicious. They have a really nice kick of chilli which sneaks up on you after you've eaten one. The garlic is not too overpowering, and they have the most incredible crunch. These would be amazing with some sweet chilli hummus, but they're pretty darn good on their own. If you like bruschetta, you'll love these.

They also come in rosemary and thyme which I will be tracking down ASAP.

Ombar Coco Mylk Buttons

Ombar Coco Mylk Buttons (RRP £1.49)

When I first went vegan I wasn't too bothered about not being able to have milk chocolate any more, there were so many other new things to discover (Vego bars...). But after a while I started to miss that mild, creamy chocolate, and that was when Ombar came into my life.

Ombar's Coco Mylk is - as you might imagine - made with raw coconut cream instead of dairy milk, so you get a lighter, creamier chocolate without any of the cruelty.

I haven't tried the buttons yet but I can well imagine that the packet is quite right and these are 'little bursts of deliciousness'. Very happy to see these in TVK18.

Faith in Nature Coconut Hand Wash

Faith in Nature Coconut Hand Wash

Faith in Nature Coconut Hand Wash (RRP £4.19)

If I didn't know better I'd think the Vegan Kind had my house bugged because this arrived on the exact same day I ran out of Original Source handwash. Fate.

This smells good enough to eat and I'm so impressed with the size of the bottle. It's made from certified organic ingredients, and has managed to keep my super-dry hands feeling happy and healthy so far. Top marks.

Eat Chic Vegan Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup

Eat Chic Vegan Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup

eat chic 73% Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup (RRP £2)

OK. EVERYONE JUST CALM DOWN FOR A SECOND. IT'S A FANCY VEGAN PEANUT BUTTER CUP. (*heart eyes emoji until the end of time*)

Before I went vegan, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups were my kryptonite. I literally could not get enough of them and the only thing that I loved more was the Halloween peanut butter cups that were shaped like a pumpkin and that's just because they were bigger than the regular ones and I was insatiable.

Since going vegan I've tried the Cleo's peanut butter cups. They were pretty good, but just not the same. So when I spotted this in my box this month I squealed with delight.

This little babe is made with British and organic ingredients like eat chic's signature 73% dark chocolate and is topped with Maldon sea salt.

I am so excited to eat this but also once I've eaten it then it's gone and I don't have it any more and that kinda scares me... must order more just in case.

Coconom Ginger Coconut Sugar

Coconom Ginger Coconut Sugar

Coconom Ginger Coconut Sugar (RRP £3.45)

Another generously sized product, we've tried the original Coconom sugar before and loved it, so we can't wait to give this ginger-infused version a try, Andrew's already got this earmarked for a carrot cake...

There are some real gems in this month's TVK and everything was brand new to me which I love. If you fancy yourself a subscription you can grab one here for the reasonable sum of £10 + P&P.

Do you subscribe? What did you think of this month's box?
