Vegan Kind Lifestyle Box, November

This is the second month I’m buying the Vegan Kind Lifestyle box and I’m very happy with it. I will keep the subscription next month too. If you fancy a subscription, check their website. Prices for a box start at £8 + P&P. The most expensive subscription, the monthly one, is £10 + P&P. I finished what I received in the previous box quite fast.

Vegan Kind Lifestyle Box, November:

Rhythm 108 Swiss Chocolate Tablet Hazelnut Truffle Bar 100g (RRP £3.99)
Ecoegg Laundry Egg 70 Washes Fresh Linen (RRP £9.99)
Only Plant Based Chipotle Mayo 325ml (RRP £2.95)
MyVegan Pea-Nut Square Choc Orange flavour 50g (RRP £1.99)
Snyder’s Of Hanover Jalapeno Flavoured Pretzel Pieces 125g (RRP £1.59)
New England Cookie Co Millionaire’s Shortbread Cookies 150g (RRP £1.99)
Sweetzone Rainbow Belts 90g (RRP £0.80)
PLAYin CHOC JustChoc 30g (RRP £1.96)

As you can see, the total this month is £24.86!! It’s impressive, but the savings are not the most important thing, of course. I am very excited about the Ecoegg, I loved the Chipotle Mayo and both chocolates, PLAYin CHOC and Rhythm 108. I tried all as I received the box last week, but didn’t finish them.

Laundry egg and mayo

Firstly the Ecoegg Laundry Egg which should last for 70 washes is wonderful. I washed clothes with it three times and so far I’m very happy. I will make a post about it in a month or two, with more details, after I’ve used it enough times to make a proper assessment. The egg can be refilled and it’s not too expensive either.

Secondly, the Only Plant Based Chipotle Mayo, it’s so good. I like it a lot and I will buy this again, alongside others from their range. This one is spicy, but not too spicy as it can happen with other sauces. It’s really very good.

New England Cookie Co Millionaire’s Shortbread Cookies have a buttery taste, but they are vegan, of course. I liked them and I would have them again, but it is unlikely that I would buy them on their own, because I prefer to bake biscuits at home.

snacks

Unfortunately, Snyder’s Of Hanover Jalapeno Flavoured Pretzel Pieces is not something I would buy again. It’s so hot. I had them with a bit of ale (Toast Ale, vegan and planet-saving), but they are still too hot. I will crush the ones I have left and sprinkle them over salad.

Sweetzone Rainbow Belts are cute and very sharp. I preferred the “fried eggs” from last month, but I almost finished these too.

sweet snacks and chocolate

MyVegan Pea-Nut Square was a bit too dense for me, but it makes for a nice healthy snack, so I might buy it again. Rhythm 108 Swiss Chocolate is delicious, smooth, soft, tastes yummy. I am very happy with it.

Finally, PLAYin CHOC JustChoc is a bit expensive, but a bar contains three 10g creamy chocolates. They are individually wrapped, but it is plastic free, 100% recyclable. The “plastic” bit is actually compostable film. I would buy this kind of chocolate again as it makes for a nice addition to the morning coffee.

I am so very pleased with this month’s box. I can’t wait for the next one!

  1. The Laundry Egg sounds wonderful. A few years ago, I tried one of those laundry ceramic balls and liked using it. I remember that I was a wee skeptical about it but it ended up washing the clothes well. I don’t remember for exactly how long it lasted, I think a year. I just googled this product and according to the internet, it’s all a hoax and you can get the same result with washing one’s laundry in a washing machine without any product. I don’t know, from what I remembered mine seemed to work. Maybe it is just that the machine worked on its own, who knows? Anyhow, those laundry balls seem nice.
    The chocolates and the bar look yummy. This vegan box seems very nice.

    1. I didn’t google the Ecoegg Laundry Egg before you mentioned it. It is pretty similar to the laundry ceramic balls. So far I washed my clothes 5 times with it and it’s really good. It doesn’t smell like the when I’m adding softener, of course, but I don’t mind that at all.

  2. Snyder’s pretzels are sold in our stores, but I’m thinking the ones I’ve looked at might not be vegan (the honey mustard). I’ll avoid these since if they’re too hot for you, I know they’d be too hot for me.

    I’m curious about the EcoEgg, so I look forward to hearing more about that.

    1. I will blog about the EcoEgg next month or in January, as I feel I need to use it enough. So far I washed tea towels and it was great. For me tea towels are the benchmark for testing a laundry detergent.
