Special: Cookie Alert!

The Chef: Crumbz Cookiez, Inc.

The Menu: Cookie dough!

The Goods: Here at the VNHQ we love cookies. You can just imagine our glee, then, when Crumbz delivered some of their preservative-free, ready-to-bake, vegan cookie dough right to our offices, complete with baked samples for us to try. Pictured above, you see the very chocolaty staff-favorite flavor, the Double Chocolate Chip. Crumbz also offers Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, and Classic Chocolate Chip flavors, and yes, it totally thrills us to see the words "chocolate chip" repeated that many times. Right now the dough is only available at a few stores in Northern California, but the company hopes to continue to grow. As for us, we might be continuing to grow too—ahem—since discovering Crumbz!

Special: Dessert Alert!

The Chef: Earth Café

The Menu: Raw, vegan cheesecakes. Yes, that's plural for a reason. The flavors we tried were: Strawberry Fields Forever, Who's Your Daddy?, Cherry Dream, Find Your Thrill On Blueberry Hill, and Coconut Carob Cream Pie.

The Goods: You know it's not our style to post more than once per day, but these treats deserved their own mention. We are a group of dilligent dessert devotees here at the VNHQ, and these raw wonders blew us away. Unfortunately, since they are only available in a few locations, we can't put them in the mag. Earth Café uses no refined sugars, no hydrogenated oils, no wheat, and lots of love making these professional-grade treats. Each flavor comes with a snappy slogan such as, "Raw vegan cheesecake, you better ask somebody!" Elizabeth is modeling the latest look in cheesecake-eating, assisted by a scrumptious bite of Cherry Dream.
