The Vegan Kind April review
The April The Vegan Kind box is pretty special, celebrating the sixth month of these fabulous boxes being around. Having tried The Vegan Kind right from when they first started, it's lovely to see them reach the six month mark, especially as every box has been wonderful with no let down products and always a contents I can get really excited about. For those of you new to The Vegan Kind, they are the UK's first monthly lifestyle subscription service for vegans, with every item inside each box being suitable for vegans as well as everyone else in between. Each month the fab team behind The Vegan Kind open a poll on their Facebook page, asking for suggestions as to which charity to support the following month; 10p from every box sold goes to a charity of The Vegan Kind subscribers choice. This month the charity is The Excellent Adventure Sanctuary, a charity which provides extra TLC for guinea pigs with extra needs. To have a say in which charity is featured for May, pop on over to The Vegan Kind Facebook

There's one product in the April box which I spotted straight away and did a squeal of glee over, Rebel Kitchen Choco Mylk (RebelKitchen, 200ml, £1) which is a brand I was very recently introduced to, and a drink I've tried before. So why was I excited, might you wonder? Because it's so darn delicious! I'm not a big flavoured milk fan and I don't like milkshakes, yet this chocolate milk tastes so much nicer than others I've tried, it's seriously tasty. Lactose-free and suitable for vegans, vegetarians and those on a dairy-free diet, there's no additives or preservatives, with a range of three delicious flavours. Couldn't recommend checking Rebel Kitchen out enough - I will definitely be stocking up on Choco Mylk! 

Next up I spotted an absolutely huge bag of Coconom Coconut Sugar (Coconom, 250g, £3.25) which really intrigued me as I didn't even realise something like coconut sugar existed! That's something I really love about The Vegan Kind; not only finding new brands and products, but things you never knew existed and being introduced to new foods is always a favourite for me! The perfect substitute for regular refined sugar, Coconom Coconut Sugar is freshly harvested from coconut nectar 'sap', and is naturally rich in macro and micro nutrients including Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc, Iron, 12 of the Essential Vitamin B Complex as well as Amino Acids. Can't wait to give this a try and see if I can replace our refined sugar!    

The next product to catch my eye was also a pretty big product in the box, a packet of Clearspring Sushi Nori (Clearspring, 17g, £2.99) Fitting in perfectly with the sushi recipe included in the February box, Sushi Nori can be eaten straight from the packet as a snack, or used to create your own tasty homemade sushi! I will definitely be having a go at making sushi, as it's something I've never done before and this is the perfect opportunity! 

A brand which was featured in the January box, is also inside the April box, this time with a different product! Landgarten Organic Dark Chocolate Soy-Snack (Landgarten, 85g, £1.99) are roasted soy-beans coated in dark chocolate, and they taste delicious! I did prefer the pumpkin seed versions we received in the January box, but these really were just as lovely. Great to see a brand whose product I loved, featured again! 

The last foody item in the box this month is a Creative Natura Sublime Seed Bar (CreativeNature, 38g, 89p) which I delved into last night and was pretty delicious! A roasted peanut,seed and hemp protein bar with a fruity, nutty flavour and natural, vegetarian approved protein, this is probably the first protein bar I've ever properly enjoyed. 100% RAW, 100% natural, vegan, vegetarian, GMO free, dairy free, wheat free, soya free, lactose free and made from start to finish right here in the UK!

The final product in this month's box is a beauty product, always lovely to see! The Freya Luna Lip and Body Balm (LoveYourselfNaturally, 10g, £3.50) can be used on lips, burns, sunburn and is beneficial for those with eczema and psoriasis. I received a lavender scented balm, although I must admit I can't catch a scent at all with this one. Always a fan of lip balms and trying new brands, I'm excited to give this a go! 

What do you think of the April box? Have you tried any of these brands before? Let me know!
