Celebrating The Vegan Kind’s First Anniversary with a Worldwide Giveaway

This month marks the first anniversary of The Vegan Kind Monthly Subscription Box. I can’t believe it’s been a year already since the postman handed me my first box. I was so excited to open it (as I have been every month since then!)

TVK Year 1

It’s so much fun getting surprise gifts, and the fact that this box is filled with vegan, planet-friendly, cruelty-free products, means it couldn’t be more perfect for me.

TVK has introduced so many amazing brands to me these past 12 months. Snacking moved onto a whole new level of deliciousness, thanks to Landgarten’s dark-chocolate covered raspberries, seeds and nuts, Propercorn’s Sweet and Salty Popcorn and Hoots Pickled Onion snacks.

And how about that almighty Vego Hazelnut Bar in TVK9 and Ombar Coco Mylk Raw Chocolate Bar in TVK11? Pure yumminess

The boxes have introduced some new treats for Lil’ L too. He’s especially loved the Rebel Kitchen Choco Mylks, Landgarten goodies, Vego bars, Hoots snacks, Propercorn, Ten Acre crisps, Choc Shot and Freedom Mallows. Thanks to TVK and Freedom Mallows, last Christmas he enjoyed his first marshmallow topped hot chocolate 🙂

As well as the snacks, I’ve loved experimenting with the ingredients and spice mixes. The Coconom Coconut Sugar in TVK6 and Mr Organic Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto in TVK8 were particular favourites of mine. The recipe cards have been awesome too. I love how they’re printed on quality, wipe clean card and come with a handy storage binder. I was more than delighted to share one of my family’s all-time favourite vegan pizza recipes in TVK8.

Through TVK, we’ve also got to try products that aren’t yet readily available in the UK. I’d heard a lot about CocoBacon in ‘foodie world’, so I was beyond excitement to find it in TVK9. I especially loved it sprinkled on BLT style salads. I was so gutted when I came to the end of the packet. Not everyone enjoyed the Cocobacon as much as I did though. It definitely seemed to have the ‘Marmite effect’ on TVK readers 😉

The TVK boxes are not all about food though. They also include toiletries, beauty, personal care and household products. In TVK2 we received a full-size bottle of Greenfrog All Purpose Natural Cleaner. Its neroli scent is so lush that I actually look forward to cleaning my kitchen and bathroom now.

One of the biggest ways TVK has impacted my life is on the home laundry front! I’d tried and failed with so many ‘eco friendly’ laundry detergents and ‘solutions’ in the past, that I wasn’t holding out much hope for the soap nuts that arrived in TVK1. I was really surprised and happy with the results though. Not only do they clean our clothes, but they seem to soften them too. For the best part of a year now, detergent and softener has been ditched in favour of soapnuts and a few drops of lavender oil 🙂

TVK1

It’s been a real privilege to share in TVK’s first year. And what an incredible journey it’s been! From starting in their kitchen, sending out a couple of hundred boxes in the UK, they moved to warehouse premises where they now mail out thousands of boxes worldwide! Did anyone see the video footage on Instagram of the boxes stacked floor to ceiling? Honestly, my jaw dropped!

Whether you’re already vegan, just starting out, or simply curious to find out more, the TVK community is a great place to connect with like-minded folk. You’ll find them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

  1. I haven’t subscribed to a box yet, but I’d love to find lots of savoury vegan snacks as well as lots of chocolatey goodies too! 😀 xx

    Ive not tried a box yet, I like the idea of trying things I might not have found myself. I’m newly vegan so have yet to discover everything available to me.

  4. I’m new to the vegan boxes and very intrigued by the what it may hold… I would love to try cooking with coconut oil, like you do sharon, as you seem to make amazing things with it. xx

  5. Hi! I would love to find more household cleaning products and personal hygene products eg: eco friendly toothbrushes. We use these things every day and they are laden with chemicals that are dangerous to ourselves and the environment.

    Chocolate 🙂

    WOOT, international giveaway! I won a gluten-free subscription box once, and I LOVED it. Because I’m a starving college student, it was like getting a care package!

    As much as I really need essentials, I’d love to see vegan candy in the boxes. It’s just so expensive to go out and buy a chocolate bar! I haven’t had one in so long that it’s becoming scary.

  10. Caryn

    I’ve never had a TVK box but would really love one as they look brilliant!
    In the box, it would be good to see beauty products. I struggle with finding good vegan beauty products so it would be good to have different products to try out!
    Also, I would like vegan chocolate (different brands, flavours, etc) because… who doesn’t love chocolate!! 😀

  11. I have never subscribed, so what would I like to see if I got one? hmmm. Probably snacks and personal care products which were also eco-friendly. I have no idea if I just entered that correctly! ha ha.

    I don’t subscribe, but if I won the box, I’d love to try out products I’ve never used or heard of, regardless of whether they are food or personal items! (And a bit of chocolate never hurts either, LOL!)

  13. Nilla

    OMG this looks great!! I haven’t subscribe to a box before and winning one would be awesome too.

  14. Gemma

    I don’t subscribe, but just checking them out now. I was going to suggest a beauty/body care box, a food/drink box, and a home stuff box, but seems they already do that… I think free samples or smaller trials of certain things would also be good. To be honest, snacks would be my favourite, as making meals at home is easy, but when you need something on the go that is when things get tricky.

    Love your site, so many yummy recipes.

  15. Katie

    The freedom mallows or vego chocolate!!!

  16. Hi Sharon,

    Thanks for the tweet! I haven’t been checking blogs lately, the holiday has been chaotic! Thank you for hosting the giveaway, that’s so awesome! I think I would love to try anything from the box! I love anything salty, sour or sweet! I’ve only tried another snackbox subscription (locally)!

    Have a great weekend, Sharon! xx

  17. This is the first I am hearing about this box so I am not sure what I would like to see but those boxes above look fantastic. So interested in those white mallows!

  18. Yup, I’m with those who are suggesting kind solutions for clothes washing, especially a natural bleach. Kids’ school uniforms need it! Hand cream is a treat!

  19. Oh I forgot to suggest vegan marshmallows, even if they don’t melt as well as the other kind in hot chocolate. They’re great over the fire.

  20. Karin

    i’d love to see a vegeterian chocolate in the box, I never tried any vego chocolate
