Cruelty Free Shop March 2019 Vegan Mystery Box

After last month's box being described as their 'biggest ever', I assumed it was in terms of value. But this month's box was in fact described as the 'highest value ever'! What was in this highest value ever box you ask? Let us look in the March 2019 Cruelty Free Shop Vegan Mystery Box.


  • Calico Animal Print Bag: Honestly, I have a ton of tote bags. But I do like this cute horse print!
  • Wholesome Organic Vanilla Frosting: I am not a frosting/icing person. Though I do sometimes bake for bake sales and the like. Normally I make frosting from scratch, but this will come in handy if I am in a rush.
  • Bundy's Chocolate Hemp Protein Bar: Apparently this will taste like chocolate fudge I can only dream of. We shall see. But I am always happy to have a supply of snack bars.
  • Natural World Coconut Hair Oil: Coconut oil is my nemesis, and I am not a fan of putting it on my body either (even the smell is gross). I haven't actually sniffed this, and it is a very liquid product, so I will at least give it a try.
  • Sweet William Dark Chocolate Baking Buttons: Australia seems to be in love with the Sweet William chocolate brand, which was one of the earliest vegan chocolates around. However, their chocolate is not very good, and they are not on the FEP list. At least the buttons are handy for melting down for brownies and things like that! Where there are other things to improve the flavour.
  • Lenny & Larry Complete Cookie Choc-O-Mint: So, I seem to be whinging a lot in this post. But I rarely like chocolate and mint together, only under very specific circumstances. The mint in this seems to be from bright green mint chips, which are not super enticing. I predict toothpaste.
  • VonBlu Citron Lip Scrub: I use a lot of lip balm (paw paw ointment for life!), but it has been a long time since I've used a lip scrub. I will give this a try if we ever get winter here.
  • Fratelli Scrocchi Pizza Crackers: Finally, something I am truly excited about! I love savoury snacks, and these crackers sound like they will be delicious.

Hmmmm.... So, maybe their highest value box, but not a lot in it this month that excited me. I've got two months left on my subscription, so hopefully they can bring it home strong!

Cute Kitty Photo of the Post

The last photo I ever took of Gizmo, on the day I had to let her go, was of her precious little white tail tip.


  1. The pizza crackers definitely sound like the best item of the box!
    A precious kitty, a precious tail tip. <3

    1. Everything about Gizmo was precious. <3

  2. Bummer about all the strikes! I haven't tried the Mint Chip cookie, but i like the cookies from that company.

    At least pizza crackers in there. That always sounds like a good idea.

    1. I don't think I have had pizza crackers before. But I have had some pizza fava beans, and they were good. So I am hopeful.

  3. Aww too bad that you didn't love most of the bag, but I have to agree that the pizza crackers sound so appealing! I do love mint and chocolate together so the cookie sounds great, but I am also not a huge fan of protein cookies, especially when you can taste the protein. The horse bag is really cute too!

    1. I've tried a few of their flavours, but the only one I really like is the Birthday Cookie one. You are right, it is the protein flavour that comes through in it. They are weird.
