Cruelty Free Shop May 2018 Vegan Mystery Box

My final box from my six month Cruelty Free Shop Vegan Mystery Box arrived last week. What was inside?


  • Amisa Falafel Mix: Falafel is fun, though I often find mixes can be a bit dry or fragile. Hopefully these will stick together well, they will make a quick lunch.
  • Geo Organics Satay Sauce: Satay sauces is one of my favourites, but this one is apparently a fiery blend of chilli, curry, and cumin... so probably not for me!
  • Dr mcDougall's Soup - Miso Ramen: I've had these before. They are great for quick meals. I have a couple of conferences coming up, and the vegan lunch options are never good, so I always like having a couple of these on hand. Conferences always have hot water!
  • Human Bean Co - Pizza Supreme Faba Beans: I haven't had this brand before, but I really like savoury flavoured crunchy beans from other brands. So I am looking forward to snacking on them.
  • Addiction Foods Coconut & Orange Dark Chocolate Truffle: I love these!
  • The Ginger People Gin Gins Chewy Apple Candy: I love chewy ginger treats. I am looking forward to trying these, and hope that they have a good hit of apple in them.
  • Smooze Coconut and Mango Fruit Ice: These are such a great treat on a hot day. They have a guava one that I love, I am hoping that this one won't be too coconutty for me. I haven't tried this flavour before.
  • Go Vegan Rock Candy: Not the biggest fan of hard candies, though these are very cute with their little vegan messages stamped on. They are meant to be lemonade flavoured.
  • Orgran Quinoa Porridge: In winter (which we are heading towards here in Australia) I often like to have some microwave oats as an afternoon work snack, so these will be used here.
  • Coco Mylk Coconut Milk Latte: Eh. Even if the coconut milk wasn't too coconut fatty for me, I still don't do coffee.

My final box, a little underwhelming. It has still been a fun six month!

  1. I feel the same way about falafel mixes. So so dry. Trader Joe's has a mix that is kind of new, and every time I go there, I put it in my cart, then take it out of my cart because at this point I'm kind of cynical towards mixes.

    1. Mixes never seem to be as good as you hope. I guess there is a trade for convenience? But I'd rather spend the money on some ready made falafel if I don't have time to make them myself.

  2. I like the miso ramen soup cups, but I haven't had them in a while! Pretty Dim Sim!

    1. I tend to hoard them for conferences or travel.
