Only available at Trader Joe's!
A delicious vegan cookie. The vanilla ones are my favorite, but they also have chocolate on chocolate and chocolate with vanilla creme. They are all vegan and they are all amazing!
Something else that is amazing...you can use them for pie crust! Just mash up the cookies...add a little bit of vegan earth balance butter...spread in a pie pan...bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes...then add whatever brings you pleasure.
I like to add fruit...then I bake for another 15-20 minutes. It's a quick and easy dessert.
If you try it...let me know what you think. - JenN

Panda Puffs! Delicious! Great with soy milk or just plain by the handful. My dogs even like them as treats! They are available at most health food stores and even some regular grocery stores are getting in on this. They range from 2 to 3 bucks per box....and let me tell you...worth every penny!
Bonus - When you buy EnvroKidz cereal 1% of all profit goes to the EnviroFund which gives money towards endangered species and environments.
So go check them out. They have other great vegan cereals as well, but this is by far my favorite.
As always...let us know what you think - JenN

Snapea Crisps by Snack Salad.
These tasty little treats come in two flavors, original and caesar. The original is vegan and the caesar is vegetarian. Being vegan, I have only had the original, but they are delicious. Another vegan treat that is hard to put down once you open the bag.
Check out Snack Salads website and show them some love.
They have some new products coming out so keep your eyes open.
As always, let us know what you think. - JenN and Kate

The ingredients only consist of...Potatoes, Canola Oil, Maltodextrin, Sodium Diacetate, Vinegar Solids and Sea Salt. AMAZING! They are available at most grocery stores and you can buy in bulk, along with other cape cod products on their website www.capecodchips.com.
The only thing wrong with these chips is...once you start on a bag...it's hard to stop before they are all gone!
Let us know what you think - Thanks - Jenn and Kate

Kaya's Kitchen is a great vegan restaurant that does offer the choice of organic dairy cheese if you prefer. On our trip there we chose everything vegan. We had the Summer Salad, Chili, Pizza Burger, a Natural Soda - Regular flavor, and for dessert we had chocolate mint pie. Everything was FANTASTIC...well mostly. The Natural Soda and the Cucumber dressing left something to be desired. Everything else was so fantastic that we even took some chili home. It actually may be the best vegan chili I've ever had!
The location is a little remote and took a little driving around to find it tucked away in the midst of a little strip mall. It is totally worth it though, and I can't wait for my next visit there. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and with vegan goodness on the menu such as Shepard's Pie, BBQ Soy Drumsticks, and Vegan Beef Enchiladas, this place has something for every vegan craving.
If you stop by Kaya's Kitchen, tell them we said hi, and drop us a line to let us know what you think. Thanks - Jenn and Kate.

If these marshmallow treats look too good to be true, they aren't! They are delicious and 100% vegan, which we think is completely amazing! Made by Sweet and Sara (http://www.sweetandsara.com/), a vegan owned bakery out of Queens, NY they are available at several online stores, as well as at select WholeFoods stores in the NY, NJ, CT area. S&S have won several awards for their tasty treats, including 2006 product of the year from VegNews, and once we got a taste of them, it wasn't hard to see why. We sampled the peanut butter s'mores and the regular marshmallows and they tasted sooooooooo yummy! We picked them up at WholeFoods, and while they were a little bit on the pricey side ($4.99 for the s'mores and $6.99 for and 8.5 oz container of approx 14 marshmallows), the great taste and high quality-and support of a vegan company- made them well worth the extra loot. Now that we've found these little treasures, we want to try making our own treats and s'mores with the plain marshmallows-rice krispy treats anyone?-and we will most definately report on that. Who said veggies can't have super yummy treats?!? Check these out, you won't be sorry!
thanks for reading!
