G just recently said in passing how much I spend on novelty food items, which I defensively countered with how I make all my own meals and coffee and I don't treat myself to anything else (like, I actually need unripped pants but am too cheap to buy those - whatever! Summer is coming! The rips are air vents!) but I do admit I have an intense desire to know what all the cute little vegan snacks out there are and I probably do spend too much money on them. It's probably that I don't want to be left out of the cool vegan club. All that said, here are some treats I bought and ate recently.
Nutiva o'coconut bite: This was really great! It was only lightly sweet but was nice and chewy like a macaroon. Not sure what the deal will be with them though; it doesn't look like they're on the Nutiva website and I haven't seen them at Whole Foods since. A test product, maybe?
Brad's Raw Nasty Hot kale chips, an old favorite
Sorta similar, but raw cabbage this time. Alive & Radiant Veggie Crunch Arugula/Cabbage. I liked these a lot too. It is a mellower flavor than Brad's but more substantial to bite into. And if I were to ever make my own, raw cabbage chips sound slightly easier than kale chips, if only because there are fewer curly nooks and crannies to thoroughly dry off. I got a gift of some dough from a regular customer I deal with, which is why I splurged on the last two items. Also I am trying to find snacks that don't feed into my sweet tooth.
I love this Evolution Sweet Greens and Lemon juice. Not too sweet, not too pricey.
More on where the hell else all my money is going next time...
