The Best of The Natural Products Expo East!
I’m back from Expo East, and boy did I have a magical time! Read along and see all of the exciting vegan food finds…
For the most part I eat a healthy whole foods, heavy on the kale, vegan diet, but I do love vegan meaty foods. I was so excited to get to try some of the many new to me burgers and faux meats! Some of my favorite products were the Qrunch Burgers, a vegan burger made from quinoa, Taft Foodmasters Seitan Gyro, Earth Spring Foods veggie nuggets, and the new reigning queen of veggie burgerdom, Hillary’s Eat Well adzuki burgers!
I was so excited to finally get to try NadaMoo! Coconut Milk Ice Cream. I’ve heard such great things and they are all true! Creamy, delicious, and great flavors! My advice: get your hands on some Maple Pecan stat!
I first tried Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss at Expo East several years ago, and instantly fell in love with Cherry Amaretto. I was excited to try their new, amazing flavors: Lunaberry Swirl, Chocolate Walnut Brownie, Mocha Maca Crunch, and my new favorite, Ginger Cookie Caramel!
Vegan chocolate was everywhere. I can’t even begin to list all the great varieties. I got to try popular brands like NibMor, which has new drinking chocolates that are perfect for fall. I was most excited to see vegan fave Go Max Go Foods! famous for putting a vegan twist on traditional candy bars like Snickers and Reese’s. Most excitingly, Go Max Go is releasing a new flavor: a vegan version of Butterfinger called Thumbs Up!
I’ve never met a kale chip I didn’t like. Popular brands like Brad’s were present, but I was excited to try new guys New York Naturals. They have classics flavors like cheesey and ranch but they also have sweeter varieties like their chocolate coconut (omg, so good) and their cranberry nut Greenola!
Nutty Cow was sampling their spreadable nut cheese available in Garlic Herb or Maple Pecan is super delicious and is perfect with crackers. They also have a ricotta, perfect for lasagna, that I’m super excited to try.
In fact, I received SO many samples, that I simply cannot eat it all on my own. I need your help, loyal Vegan Cuts members! To enter the giveaway to win some of what you see in the picture above, use this fancy widget below. Open to U.S. only.
