The Vegan Food Swap that’s hosted by Cat @ The Verdant Life is back on, this month, as well!
I actually sent a package over to Lindsey Reedy, whom, I've previously sent to back in September. So I got to reconnect with her, which was cool. I sent her a package filled with some of my favorite vegan sweets, including.. raw chocoagave syrup. Oooh yeah.
This month I was fortunate enough to have Molly Caple, Vegan Princess in a Omni Kingdom, send me some awesome vegan treats from Seattle, WA! I’ve
never been to the Pacific Northwest so I could not wait to dig into the
great package that Molly hand-picked just for me. I was even more
excited when I read her note saying that she got most of the goodies
from Vegan Haven, which is an all-vegan grocery store in Seattle. An
added bonus is that all proceeds from the store go to Pig’s Peace
Sanctuary, to help the pigs that live there. Which I love.
Molly included some info about the Sanctuary, along with a button with
their mascot on it. I collect buttons! So this now has a new home on my
tote bag where my collection subsides. Isn’t it adorable?!
I lucked out big time! Molly included Butler Soy Curls-which I’ve been
dying to try out but my natural grocery stores unfortunately don’t carry
them. Along with a few recipes that use the Butler Soy Curls in them. I
like Molly’s friend’s suggestion in using them to make “chicken tacos”,
but the “Sweet & Sour” recipe is calling my name. If your not familiar
with Soy Curls, they are a product that’s made from whole soybean, and are 100% natural..with no additives or preservatives. Just the whole bean
I have plans for The Vita Crisp chips. They are Nacho Chez flavor, are
made with organic ingredients, are sprouted(love), and gluten-free. I'm thinking these chips will be fantastic with some avocado, roasted vegetables, black beans, and salsa.
Caramel Sauce from a small
bakery in Seattle called Hot Cakes Molten Chocolate Cakery. So yes, I now have homemade and
bakery made vegan caramel sauce. I’m pretty much set for life! Question
is.. what I’m going to do with it all? I love the fact that it’s local,
though, since I’m a huge fan on receiving local items! So regardless of
having received homemade caramel sauce in the other swap. I’m still
pretty stoked about this sauce!
Lastly, we have a Go Max Go* Thumbs up vegan candy bar. In her note, Molly said that the Go Max Go candy bars are a favorite.
Thumbs Up candy bars are just simply.. vegan Butterfinger. I used to
tear up butterfingers when I wasn’t vegan. Easily an old favorite.
Thanks to Molly, I got to indulge in a vegan version that old favorite! I'm definitely looking into getting more of these candy bars. I think Vegan Essentials has them. (;
Thank you so much Molly! I loved the candy bar! It was a real delicacy. I can't wait to dig in to the rest of the items!
