I took another trip to Organic Avenue and stocked up on some vegan things:
Here is some foreshadowing: this was a successful trip.
The superfood cereal was great. It was basically just very chocolatey granola. I poured the giant bag down my throat in one afternoon.
The macaroons were really good too. Not quite as good as the Hail Merry ones, but given that I don't love macaroons and that I really enjoyed these, that says a lot.
Lastly, the Cashewtopia-brand vegan ice cream... I'm going to say it was the best vegan chocolate ice cream I've ever had. I have a longstanding preference for sorbet over ice cream or gelato, so I always vote vegans go that route, but if you want something creamy, this was really excellent.
Bottom Line: At this point, there is absolutely no reason a vegan needs to settle for chocolate bars. Excellent options abound.
