I've blogged about Hippie Butter before. I said I liked the
The folks at Wicked Natural say that their products are, "Wicked Good!". I say that they are living up to their slogan, at least with what I've tried of theirs. They gave me a jar of their Eggplant Caponata (after confirming for me it was vegan - I thought that was sweet, I didn't even have to ask), and I have been using it in everything! First off, the flavor is complex. You've got sweet, you've got savory, you've got cocoa, eggplant, and olives in there - its wicked crazy - and I like it! So far, I've used it in salad as a salad dressing (a few spoonfuls mixed with olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper), added into my pasta primavera, and as veggie burger topping. A little has gone a long way and the jar made it through all of those creations. It appears some of their other products are vegan-friendly like their Cocktail Sauce, Ketchup w/ Agave, and maybe their Farmer's Market Salsa, but you would have to confirm before purchase just to be safe. I give the Caponata a big Yum!
I've heard about ProBar and was hoping someone would approach me with some of their delicious bars to try - my prayers were answered! You know me, I love vegan and I love a company who is brave enough to call their products 100% vegan (we all know how many products are vegan-friendly, but rarely people shout from the rooftops that they are - maybe more companies should start) - well with ProBar there is no guessing. There are vegan-friendly bars that range from Koka Moka to Honey Graham (I know, right!? They make a mock-honey bar). The ones that I have tried are the Rocky Road (super yummy!), S'Mores (like being at a campsite, wherever you happen to eat this), Nutty Marshmallow (they did a good job with this one!), Superfood Slam (healthy tasting, but I like it), Koka Moka (really amazing - I shared this outside with some chipmunks and they loved it too!), and Maple Pecan (sweet, savory, reminds me of the best autumn memories, even in a heatwave). The Dirty Vegan faves are Maple Pecan (I want to eat one everyday for the rest of my life) and Koka Moka! Ones I want to try very soon are Cherry Pretzel and Kettle Corn. Bravo ProBar, you nailed it. Also, these are whole nutrition meal bars and have a lot of good stuff that your body needs to sustain energy, I don't want to forget about saying that, its important.
