Earlier this month I received a birthday gift certificate - from my wonderful mother - to Pangea
, one of the great online vegan stores out there. Their motto is "Alternatives for a Kinder Planet", and they certainly deliver. With how widespread vegan convenience products are becoming in local grocery stores, it's easy to forget how important it is to support the online stores - for finding rare products and making sure they stay open to serve those who don't have accessibility to these wonderful finds around the corner. (Remember Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe?! RIP)
Gluten free, vegan toaster pastries?! Holy moly, words cannot express the excitement and loud gasp that occurred after stumbling upon these. And they're fantastic! Made by Eco Planet - a great company. There's not much filling on the inside, but the pastry itself and the sweet frosting are spot-on for satisfying the taste for its gelatin-laden cousin.
Road's End Chreese sauce is fantastic, but I had to try Leahey Gardens' cheese sauce mix (gf version)... with some added cheddar-style Daiya, this stuff makes a fantabulous comfort food. Throw in some kale and one can feel even better about having a giant, warm bowl of cheezy mac.
Some classic Dandies marshmallows for future s'mores, anyone? How about a Go Max Go Thumbs Up bar, for those former Butterfinger lovers out there?
Eager to revisit the smooth and creamy wonders of Nutella, I jumped on the chance to try some Rawtella. Lookit how cute the 1 oz. jar is!
Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza Grain mix - always in my cupboard for whipping up a quick and easy pie.
The most sinful treat in the entire haul: Earth Balance Vegan Aged White Cheddar Puffs. YES. Like a fancy Cheeto, these are melt-in-your-mouth fantastic.
What are your guilty pleasures when browsing/shopping on online vegan stores?
