by  on October 30, 2017

Happy World Vegan Month! Below are some great animal-free goodies to help you celebrate. Each one offers its own characteristics that you will love this month and all year long.



Repurposed Pod Cacao Juice

A fruity treat for vegans – this 100 percent virgin cacao juice boasts six single origin Ecuadorian cacao pods in every bottle. The sweet, tart beverage adds goodness to smoothies, cocktails and mocktails alike. It also makes a refreshing drink by itself. Cheers!

Size: 8.75 oz. 

Retail Price: $2.99

Available: and selected stores listed on its website



Wine RayZyn

Vegans can eat wine anytime. CabernayZyns (cabernet sauvignon wine grapes), MerlayZyns (merlot wine grapes) and ChardonayZyns (chardonnay wine grapes) come in snack-size bags which pack more antioxidants than wine. The company makes the delectable superfood by toasting and caramelizing it with the skin and seeds intact. This sweet, crunchy fruit resembles and tastes like natural raisins – all the more reasons to try it.

Size: 3 – 1.6 oz.

Retail Price: $8.99

Available: and Amazon




This brand offers the best dairy alternative for vegans. The raw macadamia nuts produce a creamy beverage with a delicate nutty flavor. It pairs well with cereal and cookies.
