The Vegan Kind - #TVK44

It's that time of the month again when I am reviewing The Vegan Kind's latest and newest box #TVK44! In order to keep things varied I have decided to video a live unboxing and taste test one month and do a written review the next month so if you're wondering where my review of the last box is, #TVK43, you can watch it right here

This months box was packed full of surprises and I really enjoyed the contents because so much of it was completely new to me. It also contained an absolute treat by one of my most favourite vegan friendly brands. Keep reading to find out what was inside!

2017 is definitely the year that I have embraced the protein ball. I think since working out more and paying more attention to my protein intake I have realised what great little snacks they can be, especially pre or post workout. The new 'V Life' range by Bounce are all vegan friendly and they're all packed with 9g of plant based protein. There's five different flavours to choose from in this new range and I was sent the 'Cashew Peanut' one to try which I was really pleased with because they are my favourite nuts. This ball was so yummy and if you like crunchy peanut butter you'll love this!

I don't think I have ever received gum in one of these boxes before so this was a real surprise and especially since I had never heard of the Chewsy brand before. If like me you didn't already know, Chewsy are the only 100% natural and sugar free chewing gum in the UK. I think one of the most exciting things about this gum, apart from being super healthy, is that it's actually completely biodegradable and good for the planet as well as your body. I was sent the lemon flavour to try and they're really like no other gum i've tried before. The lemon flavour is thankfully quite subtle as I was worried it would be too strong and bitter. It chewed just like regular gum and was just as enjoyable!  

Popcorn is one of my all time favourite snacks so I was more than happy to see this bag included in the box. Sweet and salty is also my favourite flavour combination so I knew I was going to love this snack even before I tried it! I think i've seen this brand of popcorn around before but this was the first time i'd ever tried them and I was really impressed. I would definitely buy these again!  

As soon as I saw the words 'salted sticky toffee' on this box I knew I was in for a treat. These bite size chunks of chocolatey, crunchy, salty and soft toffees are just to die for! I was really surprised by how good they actually were and the fact that i'd never tried them before. They went down great with a cup of tea and lets just say they didn't last very long! 

I was really intrigued by this energy drink mainly because it's natural and healthy which are two things I would never usually associate with energy drinks. I'm not an energy drinker myself but I was curious to see what this one was like and if I would enjoy it. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the flavour and I liked it more than I thought I would. It was however a little bit on the sweet side for me and i'm not sure I could drink a whole can of it. My husband on the other hand loves drinks like this and he polished it off before I could even make my mind up!

I was so excited to find a Harpers candle in this box! They are by far the best vegan friendly candles around and all of their scents are just amazing. I usually place an order with them once Autumn arrives as I love to stock up on their seasonal favourites in time for the colder weather and cosy evenings in. They also make great presents for people! I love the grassy scent of this candle as it's really fresh and summery and perfect for this time of year. I'm planning on saving it for when we finally move into our new house so i'm really looking forward to using it. 

Another fantastic box by the TVK team! They just seem to be getting better and better at the moment and at only £10.00 per month (plus p&p) they're excellent value for money. I'm already looking forward to seeing what's in store for next month!

  1. Those Goupie chocolates look so good and I'd love to try one of the new vegan Bounce balls.
