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.

:)>>>

Is Ricemellow good?  I almost got some at WF the other day, but I don't know what I'd do with it.

That donut looks yummy.  I have been eyeing the marshmellows but am not sure if I want to take the leap and try them.  What does the ricemellow cream taste like?

I haven't had the ricemellow yet, so I can't say, but THHF told me to eat it in a sandwich with a nut butter, or between cookies, on ice cream, or maybe make a rocky road thing. I want to just taste it first, and then maybe do the cookie thing sometime..I dunno. We have so much sweet stuff right now! Once I've tried all the s&s marshmallows, I'll write some reviews in the snack thread...or wherever I have those listed. and here, I guess. <3

eta: I forgot there's also some No Miss nail polish in there...color Inverness Ice

I bet that would be great...and some with chocolate.

Has anyone ever read all the stuff on the Dr. Bronner's soap bottle? Geez. It's like a book.

I just used the nail polish remover, and the nail polish, and they are both great! This was the second time I've painted my nails in like...5 years. I really like the color!

I think I have man hands, but thanks! Hesp...yeah...I just need to make sure it's not anywhere around. I haven't found it though. I've seen a few Yves things, and we get vegan gourmet monterey jack..which is my fave vegan cheese, and we have boca and gardein and stuff.

Haha, I just commented on your status about this.

I also ordered to get the free marshmallows (not very free after everything I ordered!)
I got:
the donut sampler from Larsen's (bavarian creme, raspberry filled, regular, with both frostings)
mini marshmallows
smores bark
cinnamon toast toffee
sjaaks cherry hearts
chocolate dreams sweet chocolate (milk chocolate sub)
maverick honeycomb chocolate bar
we can't say it's cheese cheddar dip
bleu sheese
dr. cow cashew cheese

All stuff I haven't tried except Dr. Cow, which was there only because I was already wasting so much money.
I felt like I needed to balance out the 30 day shred.

It'll be like a veganessentials review thread!

I already ate the Maverick bar, which was smaller than expected (but I shoulda known this from the weight stated on the site), especially for 2.99. It was pretty much like a rice-crunch type chocolate bar (the sugar stuff isn't in big enough chunks to really detect a flavor :/ oh well). However, the chocolate was super dark, rich, and deelicious. It would have been difficult to eat in one sitting had I not been so motivated.
I'd get it again if it were cheaper... but for the moment, no, not worth it.
Oh, and I had a Sjaak's cherry heart. It's pretty good, like all the chocolates made by them. The center is more like faintly-cherry-flavored chocolate nougat than, say, cherry cream or the gooey stuff you get in their bars. I think it's worth it... 0.65/chocolate. I usually throw in one or two of the individual Sjaak's chocolates when I order, but I don't order specifically for them.

MARSHMALLOWS! I want those! Ahhh!  :D

And you do have very nice hands. Your skin looks so soft, if I'm being honest and not creepy! I get really dry hands in winter, and I'd never post pics of these things.

Love it. eta: I'm seriously considering making this. There's a lot of stuff there not included in other reviews. WHAT

Turns out ricemellow is like the best thing ever.

Yes, it is.

I got the we-can't-say stuff *because* you reviewed it so positively, now only to find out i got your least favorite flavor. I'M HOLDING YOU PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE IF WE DON'T LIKE IT.

Re: veganessentials review – I'm down. I've tried a lot of their food stuffs. Do other people on vegweb shop there? maybe some sorta combined pangea/VE/cosmo's/food fight. or maybe that's too complicated...

hahaha, YOU CAN'T HOLD ME RESPONSIBLE BECAUSE I SAID THIS, "-I was slightly disappointed with this flavor. The hickory style set my expectations way high. It's ok, but there's something about the flavor that's off for me. (AC)"
Anyway, you'll probably like it. I don't even know why I didn't. I guess b/c the hickory is like YESYESYES, and then the cheddar was just like...hm. I don't know why I like the dip better, either. Next time, get hickory.

If other people don't shop at VE, they should. The end. I think they are the best. I'm just trying to figure out how to do it, because of the overlap with some things. (food products, some hair stuff, etc.) I'm kind of thinking of just putting everything in there anyway, and then it will be like ..here, look at this list, and you can see the whole VE inventory..plus some reviews. Ya know?

eta: I think this will be really neat! We can review the actual books as wholes, and not just recipes. Did you know there's a Nutritional Yeast Cookbook?
