yeah, and it has excellent reviews. it's too bad. but i like their other donuts!
Organic Chocolate Nuts & Chews Assortment by Sjaaks
I got this as the decorative reindeer box thing. First, one of the chocolates in here is called "nugget," and it's actually nougat, with an almond on top. The caramels are generally good, and is that brown-rice-syrup type of caramel (it has a little bit of a rice-y taste). for the most part the caramels seem to be just the caramel, with the other thing (coconut, pecan, whatever) on top in the chocolate. I think our favorite was the mocha caramel (which actually had ground coffee or something in the caramel, deliciousness) and almond crunch (it has a nice texture). I like pb + chocolate, but I didn't like the peanut one... it kinda had that cheap peanut candy taste. Idk, peanuts vary a lot, maybe it was just that batch. All in all, good collection, especially if you're into caramels.
Dairy-Free “White Chocolate” Buttons by Humdinger Foods
Nicer, creamier & meltier than the Pangea white chocolate chips ("vegan sweets" brand). I used some of these in making chocolates, and they worked well - melted easily without separating or anything, firmed up fine. It's too bad the package is so small. Small. Really small. So even though the overall price is cheaper than the other white chocolate, it would be way more worth it to get the Organica bar per ounce, nearly twice as cheap.
Dark Chocolate Mint Mills by Sjaaks
I didn't like this so much. It wasn't very minty, and had an earthy taste, which didn't work for the small amount of mint flavor there was.
Stockley's Cinder Toffee Vegan “Honeycomb” Candy
REALLY GOOD. It reminds me of those British Cadbury "Crunchie" bars, except of course no chocolate coating, just the sponge toffee, which is deliciously caramelly and crunchy. It's darker in certain sections, so it's not a uniform, factory-ish type candy, which I like because some parts are more "caramel" than others. I'll get this again for sure.
Okay, I just ordered the new mozzarella cheese sticks made with teese! I am SO SO excited to try them... I'll report back asap! This thread has been invaluable with my VE orders, I hope to give back!
VegLife Vegan Iron- I started this a week ago after being diagnosed with anemia. It is a great supplement. I do not have any stomache problems like most iron supplements cause. It has an earthy taste/smell but that is because it is made from natural ingredients. I feel great and full of energy.
Sajakks mini peanut butter cups- I like these. They do not taste like the dairy laden version because of the darker chocolate but it takes care of the craving.
larsen's donuts - lemon bismark
woo I got these "limited edition" donuts!
the dough part is much like the bavarian cream ones, more moist than the ring donuts, and about the same size.
The lemon center is not as plentiful as the raspberry jam-filled donuts (which is a good thing; those jam ones are crazy). It's a pretty strong lemon flavor, like some strong lemonade thickened with starch or something. What's odd about these is they come with the chocolate frosting (you can't choose), and chocolate + lemon is a bit weird! I think the vanilla frosting would suit it better.
Also, I had the same melting issue with the frosting as before. What I do is defrost the donut first (as the instructions say now; i don't remember this from before...), bake at 300 for 2 min, and then put some frosting on top, and bake another 2 min. That way the donuts have the 3-4 minutes of oven time as directed, and after the second 2 min, the frosting is very spreadable and forms a good glaze when it cools. It's a bit of work for pre-made donuts, and I suspect you could probably add the frosting to the frozen donut and microwave instead...
Eli's Earth Bars - Treasure
This is a bit of a crumbly version of a butterfinger, with a thick caramel on top. I liked it ok, but I don't think it was worth it (the butterfinger part is not that great, and the bar itself is perhaps smaller than the gomax ones). The peanut butter pillowss made by Chocolate Inspirations is a much better version of the butterfinger filing. Also, when I got my order everything was pretty warm, but this wasn't melted at all.
Vegan Chocolate Bark by Boardwalk Chocolates - Peaches & Cream
I saw there was white chocolate (always interesting), and then there were PEACHES, and I knew it had to be done.
And it sucked.
The white chocolate doesn't have much flavor and is waxy. There is definitely better out there.
The dried peaches were hard and pretty much devoid of flavor. I don't know how this happened, because any dried peach thing I've had before was better.
Somehow J liked it, but then again he loves bland food, so that probably explains it.
This was also not melted on arrival despite being warm.
that's how that stuff is!
