So excited to stuff these in our faces. Hey, we’ll even pretend to celebrate Passover and Ash Wednesday if the gettings are this good!
Bluestocking Bonbons are making these adorable bunnies and divine matzot for the hoildays. Lagusta (the lass behind Bluestockings) tells us; “People who like the matzo toffee go *insane* over it and are subject to fits of being unable to write in anything but caps when it’s mentioned.” YUM.
It goes without saying that both items (like everything else Lagusta makes) are made from organic, vegan, and fair-trade ingredients. Score.
If you are going the elegant route, Allison’s can’t be beat.
This adorable egg comes filled with vegan and all-natural candy. Natural Candy Store (online) is a great place to come back regularly for “supplies.”
Vegan peeps exist! And they are better than the originals, especially when made (with love) by Sara Sohn. They are 100% gelatin-free, as if you’d want to actually eat a “colorless water-soluble glutinous protein obtained from animal tissues such as bone and skin.” Barfing.
Seriously, why would you eat “mainstream” candy made from boob milk, unethically obtained ingredients, animal tissue, and gag-alicious crud when you could eat this stuff? Okay, maybe not everyone can afford the slightly higher price points on these more gourmet options featured above, but you can buy plenty of accidentally vegan candy (albeit not organic or fair-trade) at your local market. See this list for ideas. And always check out the Kosher-for-Passover section of your local supermarket, it’s a treasure trove of veganism (without meaning to be!) Just check ingredients. Our last foray to that section hooked us up with a yummy carrot cake mix, dark chocolate covered matzah, and chocolate covered jelly rings.
Or make your own candy!
If you are fan of chocolate eggs, make these your own damn self for pennies.
