‘The Goodness Project’ Review – May Mini Vegan Subscription Box
In case you hadn’t heard Flowbox have changed their name to The Goodness Project.
Most of my May box was scoffed in no time at all, but I’ve been so busy I haven’t yet written about it. I’ll probably post my thoughts on my June box very soon too. So what was in this scrumptious box:
Le Pain Des Fleurs Chestnut Crispbread: I think I really like chestnuts. I regularly buy some nut roasts which have chestnuts in, and just love the flavour. Lots of mmmm noises came from me as I enjoyed these chestnut crispbreads for the first time. Bella and Reuben also loved them. Tmade a great on the go snack for my one and four year old. They’re tasty all by themselves, but also with some new avocado spread I found in Tesco generously spread on top with slices of cooling cucumber. Delicious!
Montezuma’s Sea Dog: Dark chocolate with lime and sea salt. Not a flavour I’d ever pick for myself from a shop as the mix just doesn’t sound appetising, right? Wrong! I was so surprised that I liked this combination. I’m usually very anti salty things, but this bar was delicious. I probably shouldn’t admit I devoured the entire thing in the very same day! I put it away, but wanted more straight away. I think the only time I’ve probably had lime and salt together is in my early twenties when drinking tequila or bottles or Mexican style beer! The flavours are much better in chocolate though and sometimes it pays to break away from your comfort zone and try something new. You may be pleasantly surprised.
Planet Organic Rawkin’Nola: These are granola bites packed full of a load of superfood and wholefood ingredients I just love – quinoa, buckwheat, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, maca, CACAO. Yum! Chocolatey thanks to the cacao and a great snack on the go or evening treat after dinner in front of the tele stylee!
Primal Strips Meatless Jerky: I just can’t bring myself to try this! It’s still in the cupboard. I’d never have eaten meat jerky when I did eat meat. I never thought it looked very appetising. I don’t think meat does at all and I don’t miss the texture or taste of it. So for me I’m not a veggie looking for meat alternatives. I’m all for loads of fruit and veggies instead rather than pretend meat. If you miss the meat taste though and love jerky, then check them out as they’ve won awards so they must be good! Just not for me.
9Bar Hazelnut Cocoa Kick: Arg I love these things. I’ve had several before and they don’t last long. It was the first thing I ate from the box. I had to eat it as soon as I saw it. It has a melty chocolate mixed into it and loads of super seeds. It’s so delicious and totally moreish, but sadly contains sugar and golden syrup which makes me sad, so I wouldn't buy again.
