South African Vegan Snacks 09/04/12
O' My Goodness has a range of delicious vegan and raw food snacks that will light up any South African vegetarian or vegan's day.
While I’m writing this, I am very happily munching on a tasty and flavoursome cinnamon and apple munch packet – made from raisins, apples, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, pecan nuts, dates and himalayan rock salt – and, O’ My Goodness it’s tasty! O’ My Goodness is a range of speciality vegetarian snacks that give you all the taste, with none of the nasties. From mushroom biltong to coco citrus rounds (yum!) – they have a range of sweet and savoury healthy treats.
When Ariella Kaplan said that she was going to send over a packet of O’ My Goodness snacks for me to sample, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Well I was truly delighted when I got all of this crammed into a little box.
This little snack pack included samples from all the ranges.
A range of vegan, raw dehydrated savoury snacks including:
Mushroom biltong – this was a huge hit with vegetarian and meat-eating testers alike. Being a long-term vegetarian in South Africa I have never eaten biltong (dried, spiced meat) and I was interested to see what people thought of it. While it is quite dry, the spices are apparently spot on and everyone who tried them was impressed. Very moreish, mushroom biltong would work wonders on an avo sandwich or even a pizza topping.
Fiery Mushrooms – like mushroom biltong only with more chilli
Spiced Cashews – nice lemony spices
Sweet potato flax seed crackers – tasty and filling
For sweet-addicts like myself, this is your range.
Coco citrus rounds – a raw chocolate fan’s delight
Carob Oat Rounds
All were yummy and guilt-free.
Enjoy dried fruit that’s naturally ripened, with no additives to get the best that nature intended. I sampled dried naartjies, dried tomatoes, dried peaches and dried olives and tomatoes. All great – although I wasn’t sure whether I should eat the naartjie skins… I did. The sweet insides worked with the tart skin.
All in all, I was really impressed with the range and would happily recommended it to others.
