This idea for a thread may already have been done before. If it has I am very sorry and I would just like to take a moment to say that it's about to be done again.





I wanted to list my top ten vegany faves. I get bored like that sometimes and wanted to share my boredom with you.



What follows are my top ten vegan items.



Please post your own list if you're so inclined of up to ten items.



The only thing is they have to be specifically vegan.



I mean, I could have listed hummus ten times and been done with it. But hummus has always been vegan. I'm looking for products that rival or surpass their animal containing counterparts, or things that make your life as a vegan easier.



You get the idea.





jeezycreezy's top ten




  1. Kiss My Face Whitening Toothpaste
    Talk about cool minty freshness. Then, when you're done, try this toothpaste. It is teh yum!


  2. Earth Island Vegenaise
    I can't believe I choked down Nayonaise for all those years! Somebody should bring Shakespeare back to life so he can write a sonnet about it. Honestly. No other vegan spread I know is as worthy of iambic pentameter. Unless hummus is a spread?


  3. Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream and Better Than Cream Cheese
    A bold claim indeed. But time and again it holds true!!


  4. Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread
    Non-GMO, non-hydrogenated, full of vegany goodness. No whey!


  5. Earth Island "Vegan Gourmet" Mozzarella
    Like the package says, it melts! What they should add after that: "Eventually!"


  6. Silk Nog
    Just when you thought Christmas couldn't get any better, along comes Silk Nog.


  7. Red Star Nutritional Yeast
    Is there anything that doesn't taste better with a few shakes of this? Just don't eat it straight from the container. That s**t sticks to your teeth.


  8. www.veganessentials.com
    Where else can you find half this stuff?


  9. Herban Cowboy Organic Cologne — dusk
    Not tested on animals. My wife thinks it smells awesome. Everything I've tried from Herban Cowboy rocks. Me likey!


  10. Parma! Vegan Parmesan
    Only because I couldn't think of a good tenth item. It's really just Red Star Nutritional Yeast with walnuts. How weird is that? But Parma! is totally how I rock my pasta.



So...what's on your list?

I'm assuming Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet and Earth Island Vegan Gourmet are one and the same, yes?

1. Vegenaise. Slather it on a broken bone, wrap with duct tape and you will heal in 72 hrs. Mix with chipotle peppers and it will cure cancer.

2. Earth Balance

3. Uncle Eddie's cookies

4. Purely Decadent Chocolate Brownie Almond

5. Purely Decadent Peanut Butter Zig Zag

6. Boca Vegan burgers

7. Van's Original frozen waffles

8. Real Food Daily. Eat here and live forever. At the very least you will move to Santa Monica and live there forever.

9. Vanilla Rice Dream

10. Fritos



It's mostly about the best junk food. The rest is too easy.

Keep on freepin' on

I was just thinking about them today. I <3 their Cowvin and Little Devils cookies. And....this summer, they (infrequently) had vegan softserve (soft serve!) ice cream. I walked down the street in the summer breeze, my tongue gently caressing the sprinkles(!) away from the cool vanilla sweetness..ah, I was a kid again.

for many birthdays my mom would order me a box full of a range of their goodies, and it seriously not only made my birthday, but my year! I wish I lived near them, but then again, I'd probably be 20lbs heavier.
