Vegan snack review round-up
Here's a round up of all the vegan snack odds and sods I've discovered recently. I like to pretend that I I spend a very healthy life grazing on activated nuts and lucuma powder and heritage vegetables, but you're more likely to find a big packet of biscuits in my house than any of these things. You're also likely to find me with my snout stuck in said packet of biscuits, like a pig after truffles.
My favourite biscuit crush of the moment is Lucy's Oatmeal Cookies.
Imagine if you had a Wotsit that had had a love child with a bag of peanuts, and Corn Peanuts would be sort of it. Or, if you'd rather, imagine you'd managed to crossbreed packing peanuts with peanut butter into a lovely edible creation. Don't imagine too hard how you'd go about doing either of those things though, otherwise you'll never want to eat these beauties, and that would be a real shame.
If you're of a mindset that eschews foods that need elaborate metaphors to explain them, and would rather eat something that's a bit more like a cereal bar, I can help you there too.
Squirrel Sisters are a relatively new addition to the world of vegan cereal bars, and currently makes four flavours: raspberry ripple, coconut cashew, cacao orange, and cacao brownie. They cost around £2 to £2.50 a pop, so they're not cheap.
For your cash, you get two dainty little bars in a pretty cardboard tray, like you're eating some fancy vegan Twix thing or something. For £2.50, I'm not sure I want something dainty - I'd like something more doorstop sized to be honest. The packaging's pretty, the taste is nice, but the price to size ratio is a bit whack. (Or I am a bit greedy and parsimonious? That's also possible.)
