|Vegan Tuck Box*
Vegan Tuck Box offers a monthly box of vegan food-based products. Ideal to take to work to munch on during breaks like I did or to snack on at home when you’re feeling peckish. Unlike other popular vegan boxes, Vegan Tuck Box is made up of purely edible products so if you are a foodie like me and want to discover new foods and drinks, this is the box for you.
The products in this month’s edition are:
- Eti Tutku biscuits – RRP Unknown
- Vivani, White Nougat Crisp – 0.99p
- Moo Free Chocolates, Mini Moos Cheeky orange chocolate bar – 0.85p
- Ten Acre Crisps, The Day Sweet and Sour Became Friends – 0.69p
- Rebel Kitchen, Banana Mylk – 0.99p
- Chimpanzee Bar, Apricot – £1.99
|Vivani, White Nougat Crisp|
One major downside for me is that I am allergic to hazelnuts and peanuts *sobs* so I was unable to enjoy the Tutku biscuits and the Vivani White Nougat Crisp bar. Fortunately my father is a menace to all biscuit kind so happily tested them for me. Being an omnivorous human he was really impressed. The Vivani chocolate bar was smooth and creamy and I don’t think the Tutku biscuits even lasted a day with my dad soon asking me where he could buy them from!
Moo Free Chocolates is a brand I’m all too familiar with. Regular readers here will know that in every other post I can’t help but go on about my chocolate/orange combo obsession so you can only imagine my excitement when I saw their Mini Moo Choccy Orange bar (Yes, that is empty packaging in the photo – I couldn’t hold back). It had sugary-crystal things embedded in it which added a delicious sweet crunch.
|Ten Acre Crisps|
Ten Acre Crisps are a brand I saw at the Natural & Organic Products Show but were so popular that despite there being at least 20 cases of them, I was unable to get my hands on a single packet! They did not disappoint! They have the crunchy texture of posh crisps and offer very unique flavours. If I saw these in the shops I’d enthusiastically fill my basket, dance around with glee and no doubt get a few odd looks from customers and the sales assistants.
I was lucky enough to try all of the Rebel Kitchen range from their very friendly reps at the Natural & Organic Product Show, including their adult flavour range. Coinciently the banana flavour was my favourite. A refreshing coconut milk based shake which was not at all thick in texture which I find a bit off-putting with similar products.
A brand completely new to me is Chimpanzee. If you’re familiar with my blog you’ll know that fitness is very important to me as is getting the right nutrition. I had a 1/3 of this bar before an intense HIIT session and the remainder afterwards. I look forward to eating more of these as it was filling, full of crunchy texture and sweet without being overly so.
Unlike any other subscription boxes I’ve seen, Vegan Tuck Box offers free postage on all their boxes and they come in two sizes! For £20 a month you get a big box with 10 – 12 different products. This might seem expensive but if you add up the amount of money you might spend on snacks each month, it’s a bargain, especially as many of these products aren’t found on your high street. The other option is the Mini Vegan Tuck Box which is a more wallet-friendly cost of £10 a month containing 5-6 products.
I think this is a great concept. It makes vegan food easily accessible to everyone. Plus it’s always nice to have a little treat without being overindulgent and knowing that they are vegan friendly is a massive bonus (and I get brownie point from my parents for “generously” sharing the nutty products. Mwahahaha!)
