Vegan Tuck Box

The last Vegan Tuck Box I tried was their Easter special one back in March of this year. I was so impressed with the Easter box that I have ever since been meaning to try out one their regular monthly subscription boxes. However, if you read my blog you will know that I am already signed up to a few boxes and literally can't justify signing up to anymore! 

I have been considering perhaps substituting one of my other regular boxes in place for a new one, just to mix things up a little, and I am still considering doing this. The only trouble is once you sign up to one they're so damn hard to give up! Not only do I already love the subscription boxes that I receive but I just know that I will get a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out) if I end a subscription and then see everyone's photos of said box going up on Instagram. 

It sure is a dilemma! 

I decided to get in touch with the lovely people at Vegan Tuck Box and share this conundrum with them. I wanted to trial run a Vegan Tuck Box before fully committing to a subscription and they kindly agreed to send me their July box AND a 20% discount code for my blog readers. 

To take advantage of this just enter 'blog20' at the checkout to receive 20% off your first box!  

If you didn't already know Vegan Tuck Box was the first Vegan box scheme to start up in the UK. Not only do they offer a subscription service on their boxes but they also sell individual and gift boxes too. As mentioned earlier, my first box was an Easter special and if you're not up for subscribing it's really worth keeping an eye out on their website during the holiday seasons as they make excellent special boxes which are great as presents for others, or just for yourself! 

One of the things that I personally love about Vegan Tuck Box is that they also give you the choice of the size of the box you want to receive. Their classic box normally contains 10-12 items and their mini box has around 5-6. So there is something to suit different budgets and needs for treats! Every box contains 100% Vegan products with there being different products every month and gluten free options available too.

When my classic July box arrived I was a little shocked and impressed by just how much it contained. Inside the box were 11 great sized Vegan products, most of which I had never tried before. I also really liked how there was a mix of products from chocolatey treats, sweets, health foods and savoury goodies. There was a really good variety which I couldn't wait to tuck into! 

Included in the box:

Eat Chic Peanut Butter Chocolate Cup *
Montezuma's Giant Chocolate Buttons *
Sugar Sin Caramel Fizz Sweets * 
Bio Organic Eko Falafel Mix
Provamel Rice Coconut Drink
Gillie Food Soy Jerky
Home Free Mini Choc Chip Cookies *
International Favourites Peeled Roasted Chestnuts
Perry Court Farm Apple & Blueberry Fruit Bar
Planet Organic Goji Pumpkin Seed Raw & Organic Bar
Essy & Bella Eton Mess Gourmet Chocolate Bar *

I have to say that both me and my husband have really enjoyed making our way through this box over the past few weeks! Im not going to say I loved everything because I didn't and that would be fibbing, but there were some amazing stand out products for me which I have highlighted with an * above. 

Items I wasn't so keen on included the roasted chestnuts which to be honest I found really gross and they went straight in the bin! I also wasn't a fan of the soy jerky but my husband on the other hand really liked this. So I guess ultimately it does just come down to personal preference and one thing I hate might be loved by another. 

For £17 a month + £3 postage you can subscribe to a box of this size, or if you wanted to buy a one off individual classic box it would be £19 +pp. This is a great sized box and, if I didn't subscribe to any other boxes at the moment, this would be something I wouldn't even question signing myself up to. 

Just like my other regular subscription box from The Vegan Kind, Vegan Tuck box also donate money to an animal charity with 20p from every box sold going to Hillside Animal Sanctuary. I do love how schemes such as these support different charities and it's a fantastic way of helping to contribute towards a good cause whilst also treating yourself. 

If you're still unsure about signing up to a box I would highly recommend having a look around the Vegan Tuck Box website as, aside from their boxes, they also offer individual Vegan items within their online shop. I hadn't even thought to look here to buy things such as Vegan chocolate or savoury treats but they actually have a really great selection of some of my favourites so this is a great one stop shop.

I'm now off to mentally weigh up all my subscription boxes! Who knew that there would be just so much choice when being Vegan? In fact most people tend to think the opposite and that it's a really limited lifestyle to lead. Well how wrong are they! 

I'd love to hear from you and what Vegan subscription boxes you all subscribe to so please do comment below and share your thoughts and recommendations.

  1. This is incredibly good value for money! I could see me using the chestnuts in spa stir fry. I'd love to try the 'jerky' just because I miss things like pepperoni etc.
