Cruelty Free Shop April 2017 Vegan Mystery Box

The months seem to come around so quickly with these boxes! The box is of course the Cruelty Free Shop Vegan Mystery Box.

April Vegan Mystery Box

  • Late July Jalapeno Lime Tortilla Chips: I have been told that these are not too spicy, but I will remain suspicious until I try them myself. With a big vat of guac for cooling purposes.
  • Lenny and Larry Complete Cookie Birthday Cake: I've had this cookie several times before. It is my favourite of their flavours.
  • Organic Matters Southwest Chipotle Coconut Bacon Bits: More spicy? Good news! I have tried these and the heat is very gentle. So far I have had these sprinkled on peanut butter toast, which was nice.
  • Well & Good Red Pancake Mix: This has raspberry and pomegranate in it, and I am very excited to try it.
  • Tom & Luke Snackballs Peanut Butter and Cacao: I haven't had these yet but I know they will be good.
  • Loving Earth Banoffee Bang Bang: I like other things I have had from Loving Earth, though I suspect this will fall into the too sweet category for me.
  • Organic Noodle Kitchen Beetroot Noodles: I've used these before and they are nice, and also pretty. The box also included a recipe for using the noodles (which I don't need).
  • Organ Super Snackers: I am always interested in savoury snacks.
  • Sunwarrior Protein Powder: I am not so fussed on protein poweders. I think I have a recipe somewhere that required one, so I will save this for using up when I find it again.

Overall I was fairly happy with the contents of my box this month!

Dim Sim is miffed

As I mentioned, Dim Sim spends a lot of time on my lap these days. Sometimes I lie her on her back and scritch her tummy. She puts up with it, but as you can see she is a bit miffed at the indignity of it all.


  1. I tried one of those complete cookies once and it tasted too much of protein powder. I think it was chocolate chip. But I see a lot of people buying them because we live in a protein crazed world, and so I'm happy that they're vegan!
    I've been wanting to try those Late July chips, guac sounds like a great partner!
    The look on DimSim's face is priceless!!

    1. I've had mixed success trying their other flavours. The peanut butter one was unforgivably not good. I don't get the whole protein craze either!

  2. Oooh, I didn't know Lenny & Larry's made a birthday cake cookie! I LOVE their protein cookies. Great for post-workout when I'm tired of smoothies and waffles.

    1. I don't have any great post-work out stories for them, I'm afraid. Though they have fueled me through some marathon Netflix sessions on the sofa. ;)

  3. They sound really spicy! Be careful! I'm with you - I would drown them in guac haha ;)
    Oooh the bacon bits look good. And I appreciate that they aren't too spicy.
    The beetroot noodles are so pretty!
    Be warned - the protein powder is a wee bit chalky.
    Looks like a nice box of loot you got =)

    1. Thanks for the heads up on the chalky protein powder! I've only ever found one that I liked. Most of them do leave a weird taste.
