You’ve Got Mail:: May Vegan Cuts Snack Box + Bonus Taste of Oregon Box

It’s a double snack box whammy this week since I received both the regular monthly VeganCuts snack box and the Taste of Oregon regional snack box I got by supporting the VeganCuts Indiegogo project.

Vegan Cuts May Snack Box

  • Earnest Eats Dark Choco Mint Bar– Dried mint leaves blow a cool breeze thru this chocolate-laced,whole food energy bar.Chewy.Wheat-free.No palm oil
  • Ginnybakes Dreamy Vegan Delight Cookies– Two super crunchy,certified organic,coconutty cookies.Almost the texture of biscotti,so I enjoyed them best when dunked in a cup of masala chai.
  • Journey Bar’s Savory Sesame Ginger Bar– I’ll admit that I wasn’t excited about this bar mostly because I wasn’t fond of the packaging.But it’s hard to find savory food bars and this one has a fantastic flavor.If Halva and the cookie part of a Fig Newton had a savory love child,it would be this bar.YUM
  • Saffron Road’s Falafel Crunchy Chickpeas– I throw my head back, toss in a handful of these perfectly spiced treats Middle Eastern treats and delight in the  exotic taste sensation.Pairs well with an ice-cold beer or mint lemonade.Gluten-free,no palm oil.
  • Graw Foods Banana Coconut Bar- You know I love anything coconut but I didn’t pick up on that flavor in this bar. It’s packed with nuts and seeds,so the texture is quite dry with just a hint of banana.Not my favorite but it is raw,sprouted,gluten and palm oil free.
  • Angie’s Sweet and Salty Classic Kettle Corn– Just four ingredients: non-GMO popcorn,sunflower oil,evaporated cane juice,sea salt. Gluten-free,no palm oil
  • Teeccino’s Hazelnut Herbal Coffee– This item does seem to pop up in these subscription boxes often but I love the  flavor of this liquid pick-me-up made from barley,carob and chicory. I mix it with vanilla coconut milk creamer for a delicious latte.
  • Crystal Body Deodorant Towelettes– I hoard all of these personal care and beauty samples for when I travel. This one will come in handy for my Alaska adventure next month.I already use the full-sized Crystal roll-on deodorant in the chamomile scent and find it works really well with my body chemistry.
  • Bare Fruit’s Crunchy Granny Smith Apple Chips– One ingredient: Granny Smith Apples. Gluten-free,no palm oil
  • Vigilant Eats Superfood Cereal– Just add cold water to this cup of non-GMO oats,goji berries,cacao and hemp milk powder to fuel up on the go.Spoon included.This will go into my carry-on travel bag as an emergency meal for those times I can’t find decent vegan food in airports.Gluten-free,soy-free,no palm oil

The Journey Sesame Savory Bar and the Saffron Road Chickpeas were my favorites from this box, as they were both new products to me and get big thumbs up for taste.

Taste of Oregon :: Vegan Cuts Regional Snack Box

  • Missionary Chocolates Salted Vanilla Caramel Truffles– Vanilla chocolate truffle love with a finish of sea salt.I was sad because there were only two in the box and I wanted more!Gluten-free,no palm oil.
  • Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce– Here’s a sauce that will definitely make me cheat on Sriracha. I used this rockin’ kick of habanero heat to spice up plain hummus and turn it into a tasty firestorm.
  • Maggie Bells Naturals Pop Loco– I enjoyed the flavor of this caramel corn but the bag would’ve benefited from one of those little silica gel packs to keep the texture crunchy.It was chewy but almost stale tasting.
  • Pacific Northwest Kale Chips– I am hopelessly in love with cheesy kale chips and these were awesome.After I’ve eaten the bigger chips, I save the crumbs and mix with sunflower seeds as a salad topping.Raw,gluten-free,no palm oil
  • Rox Chox Raw Chocolate– Birch sweetened dark chocolate. This was the first thing I ripped open in this box. It was scrumptious.
  • Jem Raw Chocolate Red Maca Almond Butter If you’ve never been a fan of almond butter, try this silky smooth treat and you will be sold.Dip banana slices into this cinnamon spiced raw nut butter for a quick dessert.Raw,gluten-free,no palm oil
  • Butler Foods Soy Curls– I had originally purchased some of these soy curls when I was in Oregon last year. But I had so many other things to eat during my time in the Pacific Northwest,I never had the chance to experiment with them.Super excited to have another bag. 10g of protein per 3/4 cup serving!
  • Blue Lotus Masala Chai– My favorite hot beverage is chai. I thoroughly enjoyed luxuriating in both the strong top notes of ginger and peppery finish of this blend
  • The Herbivore Clothing Company‘s stickers have tricked out my Vitamix. Search the #eatlikeyougiveadamn hashtag on Instagram for some of my daily food porn.

I couldn’t pick a favorite item in this box because I seriously loved everything!But the Jem almond butter is really something special.

The VC temporary tattoos were a big hit when I showed off my “guns” over the weekend.

  1. Coupon Soul-sistah! Love the boxes and descriptions (very helpful), but I especially like the sassy “Eat like you give a damn” slogan! I need to get a shirt that says it. I wish I could eat the chocolate in the boxes. Seems like most treats that are vegan contain chocolate or cocoa, and I am allergic :'( But on the plus side, my girls are getting great healthy snacks too! Thanks for the reviews Cobi!

  2. I got both these boxes too and I was quite delighted.

    I had the gluten free cookies yesterday and they are so hard to chew! I actually failed to break a piece the first time I put it in my mouth (seriously), so I went to get myself a nice glass of soy milk.

    I agree about the packaging of the sesame bar… it was on the other hand one of the best “protein bars” I ever had in the snack box. The very best, actually.

    I liked the Graw Bar with the big pieces of nuts =)

    I didn’t know the apple chips are made from different types of apples. How cool is that. I got the Fuji apple but I haven’t tried it yet.

    The Superfood Cereal is very good, but I’m warning you : it’s sweet!

    My first bite of the pop corn from the Oregon box was disappointed… it tasted stale.

    I totally fell in love with the JEM butter. It’s so good!!!!! I thing it might be because of the coconut palm sugar. I have to try to recreate this at home with regular almond butter. The chocolates from the box were also amazing. I didn’t find the crackers really impressive though. The box cost me 20 dollars more cause I’m in Canada, and on top of that I had to pay 19 dollars for customs and handling! I would have liked to know that before, but at least there was some good stuff in there.

    You’re going to Alaska! Wow!

    • Yikers!!!!That’s a lot of additional shipping charges.I have to deal with that a lot of the time since I’m in Hawaii and retailers act like we’re a foreign country.But in this case,it’s one of the reasons I love VeganCuts-free shipping to all 50 states.

      The JEM butter is crazy good.There is also a coconut cardamom flavor that is mind blowing.How do you think they get the texture so incredibly silky smooth and almost syrupy?

      I will send you any Graw bars that come my way 🙂

  3. Cobi, it’s Jo from Melbourne, Australia. I am heading to Hawaii with my family and hoping you can direct me as to the best place near Waikiki to get a green smoothie and some recommendations on good wholefood stores. I have a list of places to eat thanks to you but worried I’m going to miss my greens! We arrive on Tues 4th June and will be at Turtle Bay until Sunday the 9th when we will then drive back down the east coast to Waikiki, staying at The Royal Hawaiian until the 15th of June. If you are free, I’d love to meet you.
    My email is davernjo@bigpond.net.au and mobile is 0417143163. Thanks in advance.

    • Aloha Jo,Let me think about where you can go for green smoothies near Waikiki.I always make my own or get one from Lanikai Juice (but I think they only have a locations in Kahala and Kailua).I will email you some info later today 🙂

  4. Cobi, sorry that we missed each other. I want to thank you for all your wonderful suggestions for places to eat whilst in Hawaii. Beatbox Cafe in Halewai is definitely a highlight and they have a Lanikai juice bar too in the main shopping strip where lots was on offer including green smoothies. The Waimea Valley farmers Market ( on thurs b/ween 3-7) was amazing with lots of fresh fruit and vegies, raw vegan food and green smoothies on offer from Aunty’s Lil Green Hut who have a van located in Kahuka. Wishing you a fabulous trip in Ontario. We are off to Waikiki tomorrow so have a long list of places to eat… I’m struggling to eat all the wonderful food on offer here! I look forward to more wonderful blogs from you.
    Mahalo,
    Jo McPhee

    • Sounds like you discovered some places I haven’t even been to!I ended up leaving 2 days earlier than expected, so I am sorry we missed each other.Please keep me posted on how the remainder of the trip was for you and the family.I hope you felt the all the Aloha our island has to offer.
