Vegan Essentials Rocks!

As I've said before, I'm kind of a Vega fiend. About once a month I order a couple jugs of Vega from Vegan Essentials. This month I also tacked on some food items for my MoFo posts. Guess what one of the things I ordered was? You guessed it, Liz Lovely cookies. I've never eaten a Liz Lovely cookie in my life so I wanted to order some and do a blog post about it. Well, as it turns out 3 out of the 5 cookies I ordered were recalled for non-Vegan chocolate. Luckily I hadn't received them in the mail yet or I might have already ate 'em. I contacted Vegan Essentials right away and they promptly refunded me for the 3 cookies, no questions asked. Thank you Vegan Essentials! Also thank you to Liz Lovely for doing the voluntary recall. When the cookies I ordered are back in stock, I will definitely review them. Ok, on to the other items I purchased!

This Cinnamon Roll from Heart Bodies is a decent Vegan version of the beloved pastry. It doesn't compare to a fresh roll by any means but it's definitely worth trying. It's moist with a great cinnamon flavor. A minor gripe is that I wish it had a bit more frosting. Still, I'd get one again!

You don't see Vegan Graham Crackers everyday, so I jumped at the chance to eat some Grateful Grahams. They taste delish! Honestly, they are closer to being a cookie than a cracker but don't let that dissuade you. The cracker/cookie is super moist and chewy, topped with organic cinnamon and turbinado sugar. Get some if you so desire!


  1. VEGA? Like the protein powder stuff right? If that's what you're talking about, what do you put it in? I can't freaking stand the stuff the way they tell you to prepare it-in water. Bleh. Halp.

  2. Ha! I hear that a lot. It's mostly plant proteins and vitamins. If you ever try it again, go for the Vanilla Chai.

  3. And still prepare it in water??? I'm thinking if I prepare it in a smoothie, I might be able to stand it better. I like the fact that it has a ton of vitamins and I really want to like it.

  4. Vegan Essentials is awesome. They once gave me a $20 coupon for messing up my order. It was awesome.

  5. Sarah- Yep, I use only water! It has a really distinct taste and I think masking it would taste off. One of my friends uses it with juice so you are not alone!
