I think I might have a new addiction.
I’m already obsessed with getting fluff mail… but did you know you can also be receiving delicious SNACK mail? Let’s just say my husband is much more excited about edible mail compared to poop-in-able mail…
So when Vegan Cuts offered to send me a snack box free for review, I couldn’t turn it down!
Opening up my snack box was like digging into my Christmas stocking (Santa is big on snacks, at least at our house!).
It was about 9 pm when I opened the box, and I had every intention of saving everything inside to try with my toddler the next day. Let’s not tell him about the Daily Crave Veggie Chips… he would’ve loved them. I scarfed them down in minutes. I love veggie chips because they really hit the spot as far as my salty/crunch cravings go.
My toddler has, unfortunately, a big penchant for junk food. And there is rarely ever junk food in our house, so perhaps that’s why, when he spots some, it’s with such determined desperation that he tries to get his hands on it. When I brought out the bag of Earth Balance cheddar-flavoured kettle chips, the excitement was palpable: Mom’s letting me have chips!
I admit I was skeptical about vegan cheddar-flavoured chips… but… Oh. My. Gosh. We loved them! I don’t think my son’s every had “real” cheese-flavoured junk food, so he doesn’t know any different. But what I noticed most was that my fingers weren’t dyed an unhealthy shade of orange after diving into the bag. The taste was spot on: definitely tasted cheesy!
I have to confess that my son accidentally spilled what was left of our bag of Earth Balance on the floor… and we picked them all up and ate them.
Another big hit with both me and my son was the Natural Balance Foods bar. It’s a big improvement over sugar-packed granola bars, it’s filling, and it packs a lot of punch for such a small size. It’s a snack that eats like a meal, something I’d like to keep in my purse or my car for those emergency hunger pangs. (Both mine and my child’s!)
Also included in February’s box were some dessert items which, some how, escaped my grasp and were eaten by my husband: Hail Merry macaroons, an Equal Exchange chocolate bar and Sjaark’s organic chocolate. I didn’t tell him they were vegan, he didn’t notice.
Still in the pantry are the drinkables: Runa tea and Naturade low-calorie supplement shake.
If you want a chance to try guilt-free “treats” brought to your doorstep (since, sadly, most of these brands aren’t easy to find in your average grocer), subscribe to Vegan Cuts Snack Boxes! For Americans, they’re a sweet deal at $20 per month including shipping. For Canadians, shipping is $8, so not much of a steal, but definitely a chance to support conscientious companies making truly good food.
