Christmas Has Come Early

As you all may remember, Lindsay organized a vegan care package swap through the blog not too long ago. Being a transplanted Canadian, I was lucky to be paired with Ricki from Vaughn (outside Toronto) in the great white north.

When I had arrived home from a long day of Christmas shopping I was excited to see what I had been anxiously awaiting, my care package from Ricki. I rushed inside to open my package. Inside was a great selection of vegan, Canadian produced products (all but one!).

Inside was:

  • Organic wild rice pasta
  • Hemp seed nuts
  • rice snacks (love these!)
  • roasted fava beans (these were really good)
  • oatmeal goldies (these cookies were soooooo good, they were the first thing lindsay and i tried)
  • Canadian glacial clay (love the pure clean smell it has)
  • Chakra bar
  • the simply bar (coffee/chocolate. one of my favourite combinations)
  • How Sweet bar (with a kamut puffs, this was really good too!)
  • White chocolate chips (excited to try these, Lindsay was actually going to order these off the vegan essentials website so I was really excited to get them!)
  • Fruit to go (I love these, can’t get this brand in Vermont and I used to get them all the time in NB)
  • Theobroma (really interesting sounding chocolate with chunks of pineapple)
  • Macadamia/Cashew nut butter (can’t wait to try this!)
  • a HUGE bar of President’s Choice dark chocolate with almonds which I’m ashamed to admit has a pretty substantial chunk out of it already!
  • cute reusable grocery bag from Planet Organic (an organic food grocery chain in canada)

Thanks so much Ricki for all of the great food and all of the thoughtful choices!

  1. So glad you liked the goodies! The PC chocolate is one of my faves, too (big chunks disappear from them on a regular basis). And those fava beans–I got a bag for myself, too, as I’d never tried them–strange, but good!

    I have to say I thoroghly enjoyed everything in the package you sent this way, too–that Strawberry/Coconut chocolate bar was the best chocolate I’ve ever eaten (seriously, even when I used to have milk chocolate on a regular basis!). We’re saving our gravy for Christmas dinner 🙂

  2. Oops–pardon the spelling error–I meant, “thoroughly” of course!

  3. that is a ton of good stuff that you got. very cool.
