Sooo it’s been a week and a half since Vegan Summer Fest London, and we have been having a lot of fun going through all of our products that we picked up. We did an unboxing video last week, so click the link above if you want to see what came from our VIP goody bag and what we picked up ourselves.
For now, let’s get started on the reviews! We’ll go through section by section, to break it down a little easier.
The Vegan Choc Shop was one of our favourite stalls. The cookie fries were J’s pick, and they came with a great chocolate dip. My favourite, on the other hand, was the vegan creme egg. It tastes just like the real thing, but it’s actually bigger and with more filling. What’s not to like?
These cakes are vegan, homemade, and totally delicious. When I tried the coffee cake, which is made with real coffee beans, I couldn’t believe how much I loved it. I’m not a coffee drinker at all, but you can’t deny the real flavour in these cakes. We chatted with the stallholder about how amazing it is when you taste real ingredients instead of processed foods, which is a huge part of what being vegan is about.
Another dairy and egg free product, another substitute that is indistinguishable from the real thing. This potato salad is basically just amazing. It’s healthier than traditional potato salad and tastes just as good, if not better. Kudos to Badgers, who also had some other fantastic products on show.
Where to start with this? The white buttons are amazing, and the vegan choc shop sample tasted JUST like After Eights. We already knew we loved Pip & Nut nut butters, and the fruit syrups are deliciously sweet. We loved everything from our VIP package. My favourite surprise was the tamari roasted pumpkin seeds, which were just so moreish – I could have eaten five packs.
Everyone who knows me knows that I LOVE BAILEYS. I have three bottles of it in the cupboard right now – all different flavours. I don’t drink much, but when I do, it’s Baileys all the way. This is vegan, nut free, and gluten free – so it’s basically perfect for everyone. It’s also pretty damn perfect to the taste, and I’ve fallen in love. We actually got through a lot of this by playing a drinking game when we were watching Eurovision, so we’ll be stocking up sometime soon for sure!
Finally, J just had to try this Enriched.org vegan cacao protein powder. He’s been using it for the gym and while it doesn’t taste great with water, it’s a little better with coconut milk. It performs just as well as other protein powders he’s tried, so it’s definitely a viable alternative for vegans who want to get fit!
