Cocojune Lemon Elderflower Organic Cultured Coconut: Another organic vegan yogurt from Cocojune, this particular flavor had more of a sharp acidic flavor that I felt could have been slightly more balanced. Compared to the strawberry rhubarb I previously tried, I preferred the berry flavor, though it is admittedly more of a standard strawberry flavor. I think this yogurt would appeal to people looking for a dairy-free snack to eat in between meals. 3.0/5.0

Cocojune Strawberry Rhubarb Organic Cultured Coconut: This vegan yogurt replaces milk with coconut and eats more like a custard than dairy-based yogurt. The fruit (organic strawberry and rhubarb) has been fully mixed, giving the product a generally smooth consistency. I found the thick texture to be compelling for an alternative yogurt, falling in between regular and greek yogurt in thickness. And the product is not overly sweet, with 7g of sugar in a package. That being said, because it's coconut based, it is high in saturated fat (65% of ... (read more) 3.5/5.0

Legally Addictive Surprise Party Cookies: Another item from my snack box was a set of "cookies made from crackers," which were biscuit-based crackers loaded with a kitchen sink of ingredients some may crave (half dipped in chocolate and covered in sprinkles, toffee coated on the other side). As someone who has always felt sprinkles are both frivolous and awful tasting, these sprinkles were fairly neutral – at the very least a largely tasteless (flavor-wise) version of a tasteless (aesthetically) decoration. The best part was the t... (read more) 3.5/5.0

Poppy Mix Cheddar and caramel popcorn: I received a snack box from work containing a few products I haven't come across before. This hand-crafted popcorn contains a classic mix of cheddar and caramel popcorn and tastes exactly like you'd expect, a bag that could be substituted for any other gift basket popcorn in the world. Which is to say that it is neither good nor bad and entirely ordinary. 2.5/5.0

Mighty-O Donuts Apple Cider Donut: I miss the apple cider donuts you can get on the east coast in the fall, so I decided to try the PNW version of it at the local vegan donut shop. This one had icing rather than a powdered seasoning but has a similar cakey texture that was quite moist for a vegan donut. The apple cider flavor is comfortingly spiced but definitely on the sweet side. High on yummy impact. 3.5/5.0

Mighty-O Donuts Lavender Lemonade: Seattle vegan donut shop Might-O Donuts has a surprisingly large variety of housemade drinks, making it harder to choose which beverage to to get over a donut flavor. The lavender lemonade was initially refreshing floral, but the flavor didn't permeate through the entire cup (I maybe should have stirred it more), so after I got halfway through, it tasted a little diluted. But it was still interesting enough that I'd try other drinks the next time I go. 3.0/5.0
