Earlier this month I came across the Vegan Food Swap. I thought it would be an awesome idea so I signed up. The swap rules were to send a package of vegan goods to your swap partner (staying under $20) and include a handwritten note, then blog about the experience.
I've been vegan for about four months now and I am always eager to try new vegan food. I thought this would be a fun way to discover food items that may not be available in my area.
Plus, I love swapping mail.
Yesterday my food box arrived from Elisa of Elisa In Real Life.
My package included:
- A bag of Uncle Jerry's handmade pretzels. Each pretzel is rolled and twisted by hand and baked in a stone hearth oven. They are delicious!
- A package of multigrain squares. They are a great snack and I enjoy them more than the typical thick and round rice cake.
- Two containers of soup - tortilla soup with baked chips and pad thai noodle soup. I am looking forward to trying them because I love soup.
- A bottle of aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, yay!
This was a super fun swap and I am looking forward to the next one. A big thank you to Elisa for the package and Cat (The Verdant Life) for putting the Vegan Swap together.
