The Vegan Kind Snack Box Review

I have seen these boxes in some of the vegan magazines I have been reading, they looked great and I was lucky enough to be gifted one for my birthday from a family member, it came jam packed full of amazing goodies, some of which I had never even heard of before, I wanted to share my experience of this snack box with you all.

So, what exactly is inside?

Here is what I got inside my Snack Box, I think it changes all the time so you might not get exactly the same as me, but it will give you an idea of what to expect.

  • Chika’s – Black Pepper Cashews
  • Ten Acre – Hand Cooked Cheese & Onion Crisps
  • Ten Acre – Cornelius Popperley’s Sour Cream & Chive Popcorn
  • Mallows – Vanilla
  • Hoots – Cheese & Onion Multigrain Snack
  • Ombar – Coconut & Vanilla Raw Cacao Bar
  • Vego – Hazelnut Chocolate Bar
  • I’m Sunkissed And….Good Full Stop – Chocolate & Orange Fruit & Nut Bar
  • Sarelle – Hazelnut & Dark Chocolate cream filled wafer covered chocolate bar
  • The Foods Of Athenry – Chocolate & Raspberry Cookie
  • Golden Blonde – Botanical Raw Cacao Bar

What are my thoughts?

Right, let’s dig in, these are my thoughts on the products that were inside The Vegan Kind snack box.
The snack box itself was wonderfully presented, it came delivered in a shoe box sized box and inside were all of the snacks wrapped in The Vegan Kind tissue paper, I can’t comment on the delivery of the box as it was a gift but it wasn’t damaged in any way so I can only assume delivery was just as perfect as the contents of this box.

Vego – Hazelnut Chocolate Bar

This chocolate bar was gorgeous, the hazelnut pieces inside were huge, it wasn’t just the taste of hazelnut either it was actual hazelnuts. The bar itself was the same size as a kit kat chunky I would say and it tasted amazing, not like a kit kat of course but the chocolate was yummy. Definitely one for future purchases.

Golden Blonde – Botanical Raw Cacao Bar

I am not sure what I was expecting with this, I have tried vegan chocolate bars before and they have all been really strong, not really something I enjoy but this was out of this world, I don’t really know how to explain it if you have ever had a Caramac in your life this was exactly what it tasted like, it came in a box you would expect a mascara to come in, inside was the chocolate wrapped in brown paper, as I bit into it I was thinking that it was going to be overpowering but it really wasn’t it was so creamy and delicious, after taking my time with the first bite so I had an idea what to write for the blog I practically inhaled the rest. Another amazing find and one I will definitely be buying again.

Sarelle – Hazelnut & Dark Chocolate cream filled wafer covered chocolate bar

Another gorgeous bar, the chocolate was delicious and the wafer biscuit inside was everything you would expect, you wouldn’t even know that it was vegan it, definitely another one for the list.

I’m Sunkissed And….Good Full Stop – Chocolate & Orange Fruit & Nut Bar

I have never been keen on chocolate and orange but wanted to give this a try, you never know it might be very different to everything I have tried before…unfortunately it wasn’t it was very orangey and not really something I enjoyed eating, this one I won’t be buying again.

Ten Acre – Hand Cooked Cheese & Onion Crisps

Do you like hand cooked crisps, the ones that are really crunchy? Do you also like Cheese & Onion? If you answer yes to these questions you are going to LOVE these crisps, the flavour is intense and amazing not just peaking through actually bursting through with each bite, another product for the future list.

Ombar – Coconut & Vanilla Raw Cacao Bar

The chocolate in this bar is nothing like the Golden Blonde it is dark chocolate but it tastes really creamy and almost melts in your mouth, it also has a really soft centre that appears right at the end, just as the taste of the chocolate is disappearing the creamy centre bursts through. A lovely bar of chocolate.

Ten Acre – Cornelius Popperley’s Sour Cream & Chive Popcorn

Much like the Cheese & Onion crisps from Ten Acre, the popcorn was absolutely delicious, if you like sour cream and chive,of course, the flavours were so strong and vibrant, another one for the keep list.

Hoots – Cheese & Onion

These multigrain snacks are very much like the Ten Acre Cheese & Onion crisps in terms of flavour, very strong and lovely cheesy taste the snacks themselves are also extremely moreish nothing like a crisp but more like a crunch multigrain snack. Adding these to the list of snacks to buy again.

The Foods Of Athenry – Chocolate & Raspberry Cookie

I had big hopes for this, I had saved it for a while knowing that one day I would really fancy it, that day came, I sat down with a cup of tea and opened the cookie packet, the cookie itself was really crunchy excellent, exactly what you would expect from a cookie, this is a great start I thought, you could really taste the chocolate too but what I was really hoping for was pieces of raspberry, you know like chips of chocolate you get in a choc chip cookie but there was none just a small hint of raspberry taste which seemed to be overpowered by the chocolate.

Mallows – Vanilla

Are you a fan of Marshmallows? You are going to love these, they taste exactly like the Marshmallows I used to have when I was younger, the texture, the flavour everything about these is amazing, definitely one for the keep list.

Chika’s – Black Pepper Cashews

You can most definitely taste the black pepper on these cashew nuts, the tingle on your tongue, not something I would buy again though but for people like a snack with a little kick, these would be perfect.

Conclusion

So, now that I have finished all of the snacks from this little box what is my overall thoughts I hear you ask? Absolutely fantastic, some of the products I had in this box I had never even heard of, there were a few I didn’t like but the ones I didn’t outweigh the ones I didn’t.

I would totally recommend this box to anyone else be it you have been a vegan for a long while or just making the transition this box is certainly worth the money.

Birthday Spoils

I posted earlier today about it being my birthday today, I just wanted to share the spoils I have been gifted with, been super spoilt and given some amazing gifts, had a super awesome day spent with family.

 All of my presents came wrapped in this wrapping paper, isn’t it cool, I saved some because I liked it that much.

Had these super awesome cards, the left one was from my parents and the right one was from my daughter, I am going to trim them in a few days and frame them onto the wall, they are worth keeping for sure.

Had this really awesome tea infuser and loose leaf fair trade tea, can’t wait to give this a try, you can expect a in-depth review at some point.

I have been growing my beard out now for about 4 months, got a voucher for Barber Barber to get it trimmed and shaped, which is pretty cool so will definitely be putting that to use in the summer.

Tickets to the Harry Potter Tour at Warner Bros studios in London which will be amazing, always wanted to go but never really wanted to go on my own (something are better experianced with others) so super excited to be able to take some people along, these are for next Saturday so I will definatley post about that afterwards.

I got this really nice Vegan Snack box from the folks at The Vegan Kind, no it wasn’t a gift, a family member got it for me but The Vegan Kind put it together, you can subscribe and they send you a box (shoe box size) once a month with some really nice vegan treats, can’t wait to give this a try, there is loads in here from different brands that I haven’t heard of before.

I got a stool for my festival bag, when it has been raining and the ground is sodden it is hard to find somewhere to sit, having this will allow me to just have a rest and take the weight off, awesome.

We ended the day with a nice bit of cake, yummy.
