For xmas my mom got me a whole bunch of things from All Vegan in San Diego. I had never been to this store but my mom got some good advice from a friend with a vegan daughter to go there for some great gifts.
Upon opening my gifts on xmas day I was ecstatic to find that she had gotten me all kinds of vegan goodies. These included some chocolate covered cherries, peanut butter filled chocolates, a cookbook and a tee shirt.
Unfortunately the shirt was a little big and the cookbook she got me was The Joy of Vegan Baking which...I already had. For the next month she attempted to find the receipt and I procrastinated calling the store to find out if I could make an exchange without a receipt. Last weekend I finally called and the owner told me to come on down.
I exchanged the shirt for a smaller size and exchanged the book for some things that will probably make me regret getting the smaller size.
I used to be a huge candy fiend as a youngin. To some extent I still can be. Luckily I have found restraint to go along with my mostly healthy ways and this haul should last me a fair while. My favorite chocolate used to be a See's that was caramel and marshmallow dipped in chocolate. I think I am going to use these marshmallows to try to recreate those. I have been on serious sugar overload lately though so I do believe it will be a while.
The smore was decent though it wasn't quite as good as I was expecting. The graham cracker was interesting but not incredible.
The box is filled with caramels. I have had a couple so far and though they are supposed to be different flavors they all seem relatively the same.
And that my friends is my trip to All Vegan. I would like to go back there sometime when I have some real money to spend and consider their shoes which of course are All Vegan.
