My super exciting, fantabulous Vegan Essentials order
AND YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE IT TOO, OR ELSE
we can't say it's cheese hickory spread (was able to get this in Missoula, and you should all try it), no miss nail polish remover, dr. bronner's lavender soap, cherry cream filled bismark donuts, tofurkey hickory smoked, ricemellow cream, vegenaise, and free sweet and sara marshmallow variety pack
THESE THINGS ARE INSANE. I've only previously had vegan cake donuts, which are great, but these...these. They are from Larsen Bakery (which is apparently in Seattle), and these were the special (for Valentine's day) cherry cream filled bismark donuts. VE also has some regular cream ones, and I think some other ones. The donut is perfect, the cream is fabulous, and the frosting tops it all off in the best way possible. I...oh yes.
a free treat! I've tried a toasted coconut one so far, and it was pretty good. A bit of a strange flavor...I'm not sure about them, yet.
I want to order from VE but haven't yet. They have a nice varity of food that I want to try. My first order from a vegan online store was from Cosmos Vegan Shoppe.
There's a nooch cookbook? That kind of scares me.
Ok, to be honest, I thought I saw the popular one was the plain cheddar, haha. What's different about the hickory - liquid smoke?
I can probably fiddle with it if it's not super awesome. After all, I have that expensive smoked salt I got for Vegan Brunch.
I love VE too. I've ordered from pangea a few times, but only because they have some exclusive items (chocolates and whatnot). But VE has some excellent customer service + monthly newsletter discounts.
I guess if it turns out there's a lot of people who get things off of Cosmo's/etc that are only on those sites, they could be added to the list? And when you say "everything," is that including the shoes, message wear, etc? That'll be a loooooong list.
so I just went out and got some Ricemellow - it's so damn delicious! I can't wait to dip my strawberries in it. And it's surprisongly low in calories...I just feel like it should be refrigerated or something...
If it gets warm enough, it'll deflate pretty significantly... explaining why it's so low in calories.
I usually keep it in the fridge, just as a precaution. I was so sad when mine deflated : (
I have used... 3 of the supplements on there.
If that's any motivation (knowing that there will be at least 3 reviews among 9000 vitamins).
I tried the strawberry marshmallows from the sampler pack. They're pretty mildly flavored, but I respect that because it looks like it's real strawberries, not extract. If you tried making something with them rather than eating them plain, though, you might not notice the flavor.
I think I actually like the coconut the best. I think it's only toasted coconut on the outside, no coconut flavor on the inside, but to me it's the most strongly flavored marshmallow, and coconut goes well. I was worried the toasted coconut would be all dry and stringy, but it's pretty soft.
These people need to get on making chocolate-flavored marshmallows, IMHO.
I love veg essentials. I bought that shirt that says "BEEF: It's what's rotting in your colon." which runs a tad small for women's sizes, but it's cool. UPS had delayed my shipment of stuff (including my 2 bags of Daiya) by a day because the fiance was at the dentist when they showed up to deliver, but it was still pretty cold when it arrived (THANK GOODNESS). I also bought the non-chicken boullion, which my fiance LOVES. I forget the brand, but it starts with an 'M' and is a powder. It tastes just like the "creamed chicken" version of Maruchan Ramen I used to eat.
So far I've been really happy with my purchases from them. They've been great about putting shipping instructions to the carrier on the boxes and letting me know when items I've ordered are out of stock. It also probably helps, though, that I live within their 2-day ground point.
