LIFESTYLE: The Vegan Kind May 2016

Thursday, 19 May 2016
When I made the decision to go Vegetarian a few weeks ago (read more here) I very quickly started looking into Vegan choices and became instantly intrigued. There's something quite satisfying about really researching an industry and especially one that impacts your life so highly.

I've known of Karris for years, right from her early youtube days and I remember when she launched The Vegan Kind, a monthly subscription box of between 5 to 8 products sent monthly and of course, all vegan. I've been subscribed to beauty boxes before and loved getting a treat in the post - but what better treat than food?

For my first box, I'm impressed! There's 6 products and they have a combined retail value of £12.25. That might not seem much but considering how much you'd spend to source such products, I'm happy. Especially now that I am armed with a multitude of discount codes. 

The May 2016 box contains:

 Conscious Chocotlate Mint Hint Organic Raw Chocolate

This chocolate is free from most things, but not flavour. Oh my goodness I was thrilled to see this in my box as mint chocolate is one of my most favourite treats. It's free from dairy, gluten, soya and refine sugars. My only complaint - it's not the size of a pavement slab.

 The Jealous Life Tropical Wonder Sweets, TAPPED Birch Water with Bilberry

These sweets really surprised me, I had this presumption that vegan sweets wouldn't taste good and would be like chewing on unflavoured jelly, I was wrong. The sweets are really fruity and I love that they don't "taste fake" like most sweets. Convert!

TAPPED Birch Water with Bilberry & Lingonberry

This is one from the box that I am yet to try out and I hope I enjoy it. The water is a sweet tree-tapped water mixed with bilberry and lingonberry - things I have never heard of - but it's in the fridge waiting for the next boiling hot day. 

Popchips Sea Salt and Vinegar Flavour

Crisps - enough said. Yum.

Friendly Soap Cocoa Butter Facial Cleansing Bar

I haven't used this bar yet because I have so much going on with my skincare at the moment as I've just made the switch to a cruelty free brand. It's made with a traditional cold press method and they carefully choose the ingredients so that the products are earth, animal and skin friendly. 

Creative nature Peanut Protein Bar

Affectionatly known as the "healthy snickers" bar by many this bar provides 7g of protein! It's in my gym bag waiting for my next gym session which should be tomorrow, should be. 

I've loved trying out these different brands and I'm exited to keep learning about what's vegan. I even re-use the boxes with Rocky and Bertie in their cage/hutch. They love cardboard boxes filled with hay and treats hidden inside, providing them with hours of entertainment. 

Are you subscribed to any monthly subscription box?
