We hope you all enjoyed your tasty October treats! What could be better for the month of Halloween than Retrocorn – popcorn rolled in sweets, Biona Organic Cool Cola bottle gummy sweets, and a Halloween Harpers candle?!
So let's have a wee glimpse at the wonderful brands and their products that were featured in this month's box:
Biona Cool Cola Bottles 75g (£1.79)
We were so excited to discover these Biona Cool Cola Bottles, a perfect vegan alternative to an old favourite of ours – we love that they aren’t coated in sugar like lots of other vegan sweets too, as we are big fans of ‘gummy’ style sweets! These organic Biona sweets are best sellers in our online vegan supermarket, as they are filled to brim with natural good taste, yum! The perfect Halloween sweet treat.

Harpers Candles Little Black Cat Candle (RRP £5.00)
How lovely and delicately sweet smelling is this Halloween creation by the fabulous Harpers Candles? We LOVE cats here at TVK (as you can probably tell by all our cat related posts on Instagram) so we fell in love with this Little Black Cat candle. Each candle is handmade by them in their own artisan tins, including the designs on the label, and they lovingly mix scents to create the perfect candle. They are cruelty free and vegan as they are made with soy wax, which also means that the candle burns for longer. Soy wax also holds scents beautifully and so the smell of this candle will fill the room with a bright, autumnal, airy scent.

MyProtein Chocolate Baked Cookie 75g (RRP £1.99)
High in protein, this MyProtein Baked Cookie is a truly delicious, on-the-go snack. It tastes like chocolate cake and so, naturally, we’re obsessed with it! Crafted with premium dark chocolate, it'll satisfy your sweet tooth, without derailing your diet plan. It's baked from a rich dark chocolate dough which is made using pea protein, coconut oil, stevia to sweeten, and a generous sprinkling of dark chocolate, for true indulgence. We think it’s truly amazing that a protein company have released such an incredible and great tasting vegan friendly range, what a great sign of the times! Let @myproteinuk know what you think of their fabulous new vegan protein cookie on Instagram and Twitter, we know they would love to hear from you lovely bunch!

Geo Organics Chickpea and Lentil Dahl 300g (RRP £1.49)
A wonderfully convenient store cupboard staple for when there isn't time to cook from scratch. Chickpeas and lentils cooked down with onions and mild spices in an aromatic sauce that the whole family will love. Great as a side dish or serve as a main meal with rice or jacket potato. As this is ambient these bowls are also great to take camping, to work for lunch or on trips away for a quick, delicious and nutritious meal!

Eat Vive Peanut Butter Jelly Bar 40g (RRP £1.95)
This Eat Vive Peanut Butter Jelly bar is one of our favourite new discoveries as it is unlike any other nut bar we have tasted! The bar is packed with all natural ingredients: dates that are rich in vitamins to boost your energy levels and make your skin glow; pea protein that is great for muscle maintenance and keeps you feeling fuller for longer; protein packed peanut and coconut nectar that has a low GI meaning it’s slow release of sugars into the bloodstream results in sustained energy rather than a spike; and cacao – a true superfood as it can improve your memory, help weight loss and gives you lots of energy! With 10g of protein per bar, this is one healthy snack, perfect to have after a crisp evening walk or before a fitness class.

ALO Comfort Watermelon and Peach Drink 500ml (RRP £1.99)
This comforting combination of watermelon and peach will make you smile all day. It has a bright flavour combination that satisfies as it refreshes! Also how pretty is the colour of this delicious ALO drink? So Instagram-able! One of our lovely subscribers once made ice lollies (with some gin in too!) with a drink we featured in a box earlier this year and we think this ALO Watermelon and Peach drink would be perfect to make ice lollies with also or even to add to fruity cocktails! This is our new fave drink as it’s so refreshing and delicious and contains real aloe vera, which is so good for you!

Retrocorn Lemon and Lime Sherbert Popcorn 35g (RRP £0.99)
Popcorn coated with retro vegan sweets, what a time to be alive! We’re so excited to feature this brand new product from Retrocorn and when better to feature sweet covered popcorn that at Halloween! This super exciting popcorn tastes like lemon sherbert and flying saucers: our childhood favourites! So you get a zingy, zesty, and citrusy medley of greatness. Serve in a bowl while watching telly, bring it to the cinema with you to see a scary film or put it on top of homemade cupcakes! You now no longer have to choose between sweets or popcorn, you can have both!

TheVeganKind Charity of the month - 10p from each box sold was donated to Tower Hills Stables Animal Sanctuary
This month, we will be sponsoring Tower Hills Stables Animal Sanctuary, a forever home for previously unwanted animals ran by vegan athlete Fiona Oakes and her family. They care for more than 400 animals, from dogs, cats and horses to rescued animals from farms, many of whom arrive in shocking conditions and are cared for and nursed back to health by Tower Hills. They are currently trying to raise funds for indoor accommodation for their rescue chickens, and they have 20,000 to raise – luckily a lovely person has said they will match every donation – so if you donate £10, Tower Hills will actually receive £20! They raise funds for food and vet bills on their Facebook page and their website where you can find out more about Tower Hills www.towerhillstables.com
We would absolutely love to hear what you think of our 48th box over on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/thevegankind), or on Twitter and Instragram @thevegankind using the hashtag #TVK48
Lots of love, TVK x www.thevegankind.com
