Cruelty Free Shop January 2019 Vegan Mystery Box

Month two of my six month Cruelty Free Shop Vegan Mystery Box arrived earlier this month, so let's see what's inside.


  • Good Health Peanut Butter Pretzels: Super excited about these, as peanut butter pretzels are one of the best foods!
  • Uptons Real Meal Kit Pad See Ew: I've had this once before. I like the taste, not at all spicy, but I wouldn't call it a meal kit. More like a snack kit. I am not sure who Upton's think would eat a small pile of noodles and a few pieces of tofu and vegetables in sauce and call it a meal.
  • Wildcrafted Mandala Chocolate Natural: Apparently this will change my world, with unroasted cacao beans and coconut sugar. Shall I eat it as a snack? Shall I mix it into hot chocolate? Shall I do both? Time will tell.
  • The Red Balloon Musk Candy Pebbles: These are cured for a day (?) to give them the distinctive crumbly texture that goes with musk sticks. I ate them and they were just like I remembered musk sticks tasting, which reminded me that I don't like musk sticks. Thankfully my friend came over to watch some Buffy and she was happy to take them off my hands.
  • Nature's Charm Coconut Apple Pudding: The coconut apple is the healthiest part of the coconut, apparently, there is no actual apple in this. I am concerned this will be too coconutty for me, but my dad will be standing by to finish it off if it is.
  • Nature's Charmed Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk: This is being given away as I really don't like condensed milk.
  • Manitoba Harvest Hemp Heart Toppers - Chipotle, Onion, & Garlic: I have tried their maple cinnamon sweet version, which I liked. But I will probably be giving this away as likely too spicy for me.
  • Euclove Floor Cleaner: I am always interested in more natural ways for cleaning

So, a mixed bag. Three of the eight things I will be giving away, and one I am not sure about. But Peanut Butter Pretzels make everything better!

Dim Sim with her new catnip toy, rubbing her face all over this. She did this for about 10 minutes when I first gave it to her, I was so happy. But she has largely ignored it since. Cats!


  1. Peanut butter pretzels are the best!
    I know what you mean about the Upton's meal. I feel like a lot of those heat and eat meals are really small! An a lot of calories for not a lot of food!
    Ha ha, my girls quickly lose interest too!! Cats is right!

    1. I am at least glad that she got that initial 10 minutes of joy from the toy!

  2. Bummer that you will be giving away so many of the things in the box! I am very interested in those musk candies, never had anything like that.

    1. Musk sticks were a bit part of childhood here in Australia, I am not sure how common they are in other countries! I just did a google and they are Australian, and also found an article about how they 'divide the nation' between people who love them and people who don't.

  3. The peanut butter pretzels would probably be my favorite! Aww, Dim Sim, too cute!

    1. Peanut butter pretzels should be everyone's favourite!
