First off, I must apologize to my swap partner, Jessica of Veggie Cookie, and to Lindsay of Cook. Vegan. Lover., the gracious host of the vegan swap, for my lateness of this post. Now, onto the package!
This is the third time I’ve done a swap, and it’s always awesome to see what other people come up with! In this day and age, it’s easier than ever to find vegan food, be it online, at a Whole Foods or your local natural foods market. The trick to these swaps is finding some good local stuff that represents where the sender is from. Getting something you can’t just go out and buy yourself just makes it special- though it’s always nice to get treats that you could buy for yourself, too! 🙂

First off- awesome bumper sticker! When I get my car back (long story), I’m totally putting that in the window!
Next come the local treats: Chocolate Graham Crackers and Ketchup. The graham crackers were just plain awesome! Nice and chocolately, filling and not too sweet. The ketchup is fab, too! I’m a big fan of non-HFCS sweetened ketchups, and this hits that mark. It’s cane sugar sweetened, I believe, but not overly sweet. Probably the way ketchup was supposed to taste before the 1980s!
Then there’s a couple of raw treats in the form of bars. I haven’t gotten a chance to try them yet, but I look forward to it!
Last, we have a few other treats. One, a bottle of vegan Wostershire. I’ve never seen a vegan brand other than Wizard, so I really look forward to trying it when my current supply runs out. Then, a Sweet & Sara Rice Crispy Treat, last lasted about 14 hours in my presence before I devoured it, and finally, a jar of Peanut Butter & Co’s Dark Chocolate Dreams. It’s funny, a jar of White Chocolate Wonderfulalmost made it into the box I sent my partner, but I was afraid I’d eat it before I got a chance to send it. 🙂 I haven’t tried the dark chocolate one yet, but I’m looking forward to that, too!
If you haven’t participated in a swap before, I highly recommend it! It’s so awesome getting a box full of treats! Thanks, Jessica!
