Review: The Vegan Kind Subscription Box

Subscription Box

So, I think all UK Vegans can safely agree that The Vegan Kind** is one of the greatest things to have happened to us, right? The prices are fair, the delivery is speedy, and they have a great variety of stuff ranging from food to beauty. So far I’ve received around 4-5 subscription boxes from them and I’ve never been disappointed with what I got; of course, I haven’t liked a couple of things (literally, only a couple) that were included in the subscription box, but that’s just down to my personal taste as opposed to the brands and items that they choose.

As well as the subscription box I have also ordered a few items from their online store**, and as soon as I saw the MozzaRisella (the cheese they use on Zizzi’s and Pizza Express Vegan pizza) they gained a permanent customer straight away. I absolutely LOVE the mozzaRisella cheese; it’s one of my favourite Vegan products. I certainly won’t be able to order from The Vegan Kind regularly, as the postage and packing for the monthly subscription box as well as the online orders will soon pile up and be pretty expensive; however, I’ll likely treat myself to some products every couple of months. I just love how there is such a range of stuff on their store, and there are even some products and brands that I’ve never seen or heard of before.

Their doughnuts that they sell every Monday & Wednesday at 2:30 pm get sold super quickly, and I always seem to miss out. It’s no surprise that they go so quickly as Vegan doughnuts are quite few and far between. I’ll definitely be sure to try and order a box soon to do a review on those as well.

For this post, I’ll be reviewing the subscription boxes that I’ve received in the last couple of months, and hopefully, you guys can then make a decision whether this type of thing is for you, or not.

 

1st Subscription Box

  • Chewsy Natural Chewing Gum
  • Metcalfe’s Skinny Sweet and Salt Popcorn
  • Sunsoul Raspberry and Elderflower Drink
  • Harpers Candles Cut Grass Candle
  • Groupie Salted Sticky Toffee
  • Bounce Foods VLife High Protein Ball

 

If you would have gone out and purchased all these products separately, this box would have come to just under £13, however, the monthly subscription box comes to £10 (however, not including postage and packing).

The best item in this box, for me, was definitely the salted sticky toffee *drools *. To tell you the truth, it didn’t taste a lot like toffee to me; however, it was still such a nice gooey chocolate with a strong salted top – so good! I loved it even more after putting them in the fridge to chill for a while. My next favourite item was the sweet and salted popcorn, mainly because the sweet popcorn was actually sweet and not bland like a lot of others I’ve tried. What’s even better about this popcorn is that it’s super flavourful, but also low in calories so it can be a fairly healthy snack. I loved the candle scent as it was subtle, yet made my room smell so fresh as if I’d had the window open all day; I also really like the tin it comes in which I can reuse afterward! The raspberry and elderflower drink was nice and lightly sweet, but there was a sort of odd aftertaste, and the gum was also really good and flavourful, however, the taste didn’t last for very long. The only item I disliked from this box was the energy ball as the cumin taste was super strong, and I hate cumin!

2nd Subscription Box

  • PHD Protein Superfood Smoothie
  • Candy Kittens Sweet Peach Sweets
  • Sweet Freedom Chocolate Spread
  • Native Unearthed Charcoal Deodorant
  • We Are Tea Berry Tea
  • Emily Vegetable Crisps
  • Almighty Foods Strawberry Cashew Botanical Bar

 

Subscription Box

 

If you would have gone out to buy these items separately you would likely have to purchase the smoothie and tea in bulk, therefore, would be much more expensive; therefore this brand is great for being able to try bitesized items to see if you’ll like them before buying.

This box has got to be my favourite yet, it’s such a lovely variety of things and I absolutely loved everything apart from one item (which I’ll talk about at the end). My favourite thing from this box was the sweet peach sweets as they were so tasty and had a nice chewy texture, which is sometimes hard to find with vegan sweets. My next favourite would have to be a tie between the vegetable crisps and the botanical bar – the only problem with the crisps is that there weren’t enough of them! They were so flavourful and only contain 95 calories (although I’m still not under the impression that any crisps are healthy). The botanical bar was so sweet, soft and creamy, and had a light strawberry dusting on top which was a little too strong for me, but still delicious nonetheless. The choc spread is great for porridge and toast, and it tastes really rich and raw, the infusion tea was so fruity and refreshing, and the charcoal deodorant has officially converted me from aerosol. The only item that I disliked was the protein superfood smoothie as the texture was too thick for me, but I’ve always been a little fussy with food textures anyway; it is overall a great idea for an on-the-go meal replacement.

My all time favourite thing about this brand is that they give a cut of the money they earn to a different charity each month, and I think that’s so great. You receive an info card that tells you a little about the charity each month, and it always makes me feel so happy.

I hope this blog post helped you make up your decision on whether The Vegan Kind subscription box is something you’re interested in, and I’d be happy to answer any questions about the subscription box if you have any. If you want to order your box, feel free to use this link**!

    Wow, really nice! Here in Greece, a vegan subscription box is not something that could happen any time soon, unfortunately. The idea is really cool though!

      Aw that’s a shame! I visited Zakynthos last year and it seemed that the word Vegan might not even exist in some of the restaurants! Plenty of lovely fresh foods though so it wasn’t impossible to eat Vegan.

    I need this in my life. I can never get vegan snack so it will be prefect if it came to my door.

    Well isn’t that fun?! It’s like Christmas every month…My kids would take down those snacks in less that 5 minutes though, so I’d have to hide it.

      Indeed it is! Haha it’s actually quite difficult for me to not eat everything in less than 5 mins too!!

    Wow so many fun things in these boxes!! I haven’t tried being vegan (was veg for many years), but I DO make quite a few vegan recipes and enjoy vegan meals. I love the Elderberry drink. Everything looks so healthy and yummy!

    I have looked into trying this before, but I have always been on the fence.. This makes me want to take the plunge.

      That’s great! If you don’t want to pay monthly you can cancel whenever you like, or just order a single box 🙂

      Yes, you totally should. Even if you decide it’s not your thing, you can so easily cancel the subscription. Or you could just purchase a one-off box 🙂

    These are so fun! I’ve thought about trying one. I think it’s a great way to discover new brands and foods and these both look so yummy! I’ll have to check if they ship to Canada!

      It’s the greatest feeling opening a little box of treats each month! Yes, they ship worldwide! But the p&p is £9

    Thank you so much for this info! My cousin was just asking me about stuff related to vegan because she wants to give it a try and maybe I will too

    I am interested in pursing a more vegan-friendly lifestyle. I think a subscription box would be really helpful for on-the-go snacks and such. Did you like the candle? How was the deodorant?

    • Jenny
      Posted at 07:36h, 17 August Reply

      Aw that’s amazing! I loved the candle, it was not a very strong scent but was so fresh and outdoorsy. The deodorant has been really odd because I’ve never used charcoal before but it’s honestly working. It feels a little odd applying it, but if it works, who cares haha!
