Spring is (finally!) almost here and Easter is a little over 2 weeks away… What better way to celebrate the changing season and upcoming holiday than with chocolate! (Vegan chocolate, of course.) Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates kindly sent me a sampling of their holiday-themed confections to “tastefully” ring in the new season. I’ve been a big (BIG) fan of Sjaak’s for a couple years now. I first discovered them in a subscription box (the now defunct Vegan Presence, I believe), and they’ve since been featured in a few others. They’re a family-owned business dedicated to producing high quality confections while maintaining socially responsible practices. All of Sjaak’s handcrafted treats are […]
I can’t believe Valentine’s Day will be here in less than 3 weeks! Where did the time go?! To get me into the V-Day spirit, Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates sent me a selection of their vegan chocolates to review. — It was a tough job, but I was up to the challenge. 😉
Ecocentric Mom recently switched from a monthly box to an every-other-month box. I was a little bummed about it at first, but I’m kinda happy about the change now. It saves me money and gives me more time to use up the products before the next box arrives. As always, I received the “Mom & Baby” box this month. The other two options available are a “Mom-to-Be Box” and just a plain ol’ “Mom” box. Subscriptions are $24/box, but they often have discount codes available that are often good for the life of your sub. (I was able to score […]
Oh, snap! There’s less than 4 weeks until V-Day! Have you procured suitable gifts for your loved ones yet? (I haven’t! haha) I thought I’d take some time to hunt down some fun Valentine’s Day gift ideas for everyone on your list (if V-day “lists” are even a thing). Enjoy! Gifts for the kiddos: Melissa & Doug Sweet Treat Tower – I would have LOVED this when I was little! I was obsessed with anything food-related, especially treats. I noticed the Melissa & Doug cookie set around Christmas time and really wanted to get it but was able to resist… This […]
Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates is a family-owned business that’s dedicated to producing awesome, high quality confections while maintaining socially responsible practices. All of Sjaak’s handcrafted treats are created with organic, non-GMO ingredients. They also support fair trade practices and promote a positive work environment. Jacques and Pam, the husband and wife team behind Sjaak’s, are longtime vegetarians. This is important to note, because in addition to their line of “traditional” confections, they also offer a full line of 100% vegan chocolates for their non-dairy eatin’ customers. (Like me!) 🙂 Sjaak’s was kind enough to send me some of their vegan chocolates to […]
Woah, I’m a wee bit late with my Vegan Presence review this month. My bad, yo! Vegan Presence is a monthly subscription box service that features — you guessed it — all vegan-friendly products. Items can range from food to beauty to household essentials. This is by-far one of my favorite subscription boxes! Okay, let’s take a look at December’s offerings, shall we?
Vegan Presence time again! It feels like I just reviewed October’s package… Geez. Time always flies this time of year. Slow down, autumn!! Sadly, this is the final month of my 6-mo subscription. I had my husband get it for me for Mother’s Day and now I have to figure out how to convince him to let me renew. Early Christmas gift? I LOVE this sub and don’t wanna see it end… Wahhhh! Okay, let’s see what they sent this month!
