The Vegan Kind Subscription Box July 2015 - #TVK21

The Vegan Kind TVK21

This month's Vegan Kind box is dead good. I didn't blog about last month's (and I'm usually pretty religious when posting about these because I really like them), but looking back at last month's I realised the box just wasn't doing much for me and that's why I hadn't posted about it.

There was a root vegetable thing and I hate root vegetables (parsnips + beetroot = nonononono) and there was a bar of soap thing which I wasn't overly thrilled about... ANYWAY. It was very much a case of last month's box just not lining up with my personal preferences, not that there was anything wrong with the box or the products in it, they just weren't my thing. Hey, it happens.

MOVING ON to July's box, TVK21, which is packed to the rafters with excellent stuff.

DRINKmaple Pure Organic Maple Water

DRINKmaple Pure Organic Maple Water 250ml (RRP £1.99)

I actually just tried this for the first time the other week (you can get it in Fenwick if you're lucky enough to be northern) and I wasn't massively fussed. Andrew had been raving about how nice it was but it was just like sweet water. I was REALLY thirsty though and I'd also bought a San Pellegrino Limonata so I think I was secretly pining for that so this just didn't match up in terms of thirst-quenchiness. I don't know what else I was expecting maple water to taste like other than 'sweet water.'
In conclusion, I think this would be nice if you quite fancied dessert but you'd run out of Swedish Glace and this was chillin' in your fridge.

Clearspring Roasted Seeds and Soya with Goji Berry

Clearspring Roasted Seeds and Soya with Goji Berry (RRP £1.19)

Ooooh I do like a little snack like this. A mix of organic soya beans, pumpkin seeds, goji berries and sea salt in a handy little bag. I'm looking forward to taking this to work, I'll probably sprinkle half on my salad at lunch and eat the rest as a pre-workout snack in the afternoon. Yummy.

Harpers Bizarre Washing Line Candle

Literally cannot get enough of this candle, I've got it burning right now and will weep when it's gone. In terms of scent throw, this is comparable to a Diptyque and I do not use those words lightly. I can smell this when it's not even burning, that's how good it is.
The smell is bang on - clean linen with a hint of cottony-floral. So nice for a lazy Sunday. Or Monday. Or even a Thursday.

Ten Acre Crisps 'The Day Sweet and Sour Became Friends'

I have extolled the virtues of Ten Acre Crisps many, MANY times before on here, so when I spotted that familiar logo hiding within this month's box I let out an audible shriek. 

I haven't tried this flavour yet and I can't wait to give them a go. I persuaded my (omnivore) dad to pick up some of the cheese & onion crisps at the Newcastle Vegan Festival recently and he has not stopped raving about how delicious they were.

Ten Acre, you da best <3

Ananda Foods Chocolate Marshmallow Lolly

I've also mentioned on here before how I'm not a massive marshmallow fan but I love the Ananda Round Up 'wagon wheel' style biscuits so I'm looking forward to trying this, it's something a bit different and the sprinkles are super cute! They'd be perfect for a vegan wedding favour or party bag.
