Be My Vegan Valentine
As the popularity of vegan food continues to rise in Australia, here are some of our top picks for the perfect vegan Valentine’s treats to delight your loved one. Grab one of these gorgeous, sweet snacks and your date is sure to be smitten with you this Valentine’s Day.
Recreate the 1950s romance of the ice cream parlour by sharing a sundae made with Over The Moo, Ben & Jerry’s Non-Dairy, Weis Sorbet, or So Good vegan ice cream plus Golden Gaytime Crumbs, Hershey’s Syrup, and, of course, a cherry on top – all available at your local major supermarket.
With Love… Hamper
For the ultimate decadent treat, spoil your other half With Love…, one of Crateful’s many vegan hampers that ship nationwide. Each has a huge variety of divine goodies that will tickle your lover’s taste buds and satisfy any chocoholic’s cravings.
Love Heart Swirl Lollipop
For the young at heart, this lollipop by The Red Balloon is a classy classic. Some crimson dyes used in food or make-up are made from crushed bugs – not a very sexy thought! But these lollipops are guaranteed to be 100 per cent vegan.
Sweet William Chocolate Spread
Spread the love – and if you choose to, spread this on your love. If you’re looking for some extra Valentine’s fun, you can’t pass up this spread by Sweet William, available in all major supermarkets.
Swizzels Mini Love Hearts
We all remember these little sweets from high school, and why not recreate young love? Each has a cute message for your sweetheart, and they’re just one example of the many widely available “accidentally vegan” foods.
Leda Rum Balls
Who said rum balls were just for Christmas? Enjoy the gooey goodness of these chocolatey treats on your own – or spoil your god or goddess with them instead.
Aeroplane Glitter Jelly
Add extra sparkle to the evening with some glitter jelly. Aeroplane’s Berry Blue, Lime, and Strawberry Glitter Jelly flavours are all vegan and oh-so pretty.
Valentine’s is the perfect occasion to indulge in a vegan treat from Doughnut Time. Perhaps you’ll even allow your date to sink his or her teeth into a “Liam Hemsworthy” – not the real Liam, of course, but something even better: a red-velvet doughnut with vegan cookies-and-cream frosting, crushed choc-ripple biscuits, and a vegan chocolate-glaze drizzle.
A Vegan Biscuit Tin
Go the extra mile by making your own bespoke biscuit tin featuring sweet Raspberry Shortcakes, neat little Nice, zesty Lemon Crisp, spicy Ginger Nuts, decadent Choc Ripple, and crunchy Oreos – and if you’re really keen, put a (Party) Ring on it.
Soyatoo Rice Whip Spray Cream
We’ll leave you to imagine what you can do with this one!
Oh, and if you’re single AF, don’t worry. Treat yourself to a Vegan Mystery Box subscription from The Cruelty Free Shop (for nationwide delivery) and look forward to a cruelty-free surprise in the mail each month from you to you – because you deserve it.
