TheVeganKind April 2015 Box
April has been a fab month for The Vegan Kind, featuring delicious treats and household essentials, let's get stuck in shall we?

Like every month, TheVeganKind arrived safely packaged and full to the brim with fantastic vegan friendly products, along with the usual inserts with information on the products and brands featured inside, a recipe card and information about this month's charity. The recipe for this month's box is The Vegan Cookie Fairy's Banana Ginger Butterscotch Muffins with Crunchy Topping (woah, that's quite a mouthful!), which not only looks delicious, but also use one of the products inside the April box for the ingredients. I'm a bit addicted to baking recently, especially with bananas, so I think this is going to be a must-try recipe for me! 

The charity being sponsored by TheVeganKind this month is C-A-L-F Animal Sanctuary; an organisation which helps rescued farm animals. 10p from every April TheVeganKind box will be donated to C-A-L-F Sanctuary - find out more at www.calfsanctuary.com

There's a couple of chocolate themed treats in the April box, which always goes down well with me! 

For those who love chocolate buttons, there's a 25g bag of Ombar Coco Mylk Buttons, dairy free mylk chocolate buttons which are made using raw, organic cacao and sweetened with organic coconut sugar. I did enjoy these, but they have a very strong taste which isn't my preference for chocolate, so I ate them a couple at a time with cuppas over the weekend.

The second chocolate treat was one I was super excited to see - a eat chic 73% Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup with Maldon Sea Salt. Peanut butter, dark chocolate and sea salt, what's not to love?! Created by an artisan chocolatier based in East London, they include high-quality British and organic ingredients with no preservatives or artificial flavours, using 73% dark chocolate that is lightly sweetened with peanut butter and topped with Maldon sea salt. This was delicious!

A brand which has featured in TheVeganKind before, there's a huge 250g bag of Coconom Ginger Coconut Sugar. A completely natural alternative to sugar made from 100% coconut blossom sap with real ginger for a ginger twist, making it perfect for everything from sweetening drinks to baking.

For savoury fans, and by far my favourite tasty treat in the April box is a 60g bag of Soffle's Chilli & Garlic MILD Pitta Chips. OK, hands up if you had no idea pitta chips were a thing? I had no idea, but after trying these I think pitta chips might need to be a regular in our treat cupboard! A tasty alternative to traditional potato crisps, they're handmade in London using fresh ingredients of olive oil, salt and pepper. Really crunchy, really flavourful and really very, very delicious!

The final product inside the April TheVeganKind box, and the only household/beauty product included this month, is a Faith in Nature Coconut Hand Wash. An absolutely huge 300ml bottle, it's a vegan friendly hand wash bursting with natural coconut aromas and works effectively to cleanse hands, whilst being gentle and kind to skin. Perfect! This smells so lovely, will definitely be popping this in the kitchen for daily use!

Another impressive box from TheVeganKind! For those new to TheVeganKind, they're a monthly lifestyle subscription service for vegans which costs £10 a month plus p&p. To find out more and subscribe, head over to www.thevegankind.com.
