I've mentioned a few times in the past that I'm lucky enough to live close to a fully vegan market that opened in the area. I don't go as often as I'd like because let's be honest, it's damn expensive but I like to go every once in a while to show some support and try a few new products.
Here is a mini haul from Sunday:
On the top left you see Plant Snacks Vegan Cheddar Cassava Root Chips. These were the reason I went. I saw a photo of them on Instagram and decided that I needed to try them so I hopped in my car and went haha. I was glad they had them and they are really good. I also found the Field Roast Mini Corn Dogs and I still can't believe I purchased them because a. the price tag was STEEP and b. I have never like hot dogs EVER. I don't know what possessed me but I've been so curious and decided to splurge. I also splurged on my very first Miyoko's Creamery Cheese and grabbed the Garlic Herb wheel. Finally, since Easter is coming and all (not that I celebrate but you know, justification) I grabbed the chocolate covered Espresso Cocomels and a chocolate Easter Egg.
The first product I tried was the Miyoko's cheese which I spread on a toasted pumpernickel bagel. You guys, I don't know what's wrong with me but I never seem to like to most popular and raved about products. I found this oddly sweet for a Garlic Herb flavored cheese. When I hear garlic herb I expect really savory and it was sweet to me. I was not a fan. I'm glad I can at least say I tried it though.
The next product I taste tested was the mini corn dogs. I decided to go for a junky dinner and had a few of the corn dogs and some fries I baked in the oven (for reference that is a salad plate haha). I was really surprised by how much I liked the corn dogs. To be honest they are really expensive and I probably won't buy them again because I don't like hot dogs enough to do that but I did enjoy them (probably because I love cornbread) and the rest of the bag will definitely not go to waste.
This is just a random bonus meal I photographed. I made a delicious wrap with half of one of the Trader Joe's Lavash wraps with hummus, tofurkey, avocado, tomato and romaine. I had it with a few stuffed grape leaves and some delicious, sweet pineapple. Such a great meal.
So that's what I have for you today! I hope that you are all doing well and I'll see you on Friday with another post! <3
