Vegan Essentials offers all kinds of great vegan treats, everything from cheese and meat alternatives to baked goods, candies, breakfast foods, baking mixes, soy jerky, sauces, pantry essentials, cold food items and more! Just a few of my go to items that they feature are Parma Zaan Sprinkles Parmesan Alternative by Vegetarian Express, anything by Field Roast and Vegan Cookie Dough by Eat Pastry. Also offering vegan favorites Nate’s Meatless Meatballs, Beyond Meat Chicken Free Strips, and a ton of other meat alternatives, they have one of the largest food selections I’ve seen online thus far when it comes to shopping vegan. Why not order the Tofurkey pizzas or make your own pizza at home with Yves Meatless Pepperoni Slices? If you are in the mood for “seafood” they offer vegan prawns, crab cakes, and breaded vegan fishless sticks. I am absolutely dying to try their Phoney Baloney Coconut Bacon, Meat(not)Loaf, and their Vegan Mozzarella Sticks by Veggie Brothers. Their Tofutti Better Than Ricotta would be awesome in Lasagna and they also offer a variety of baked goods like donuts and red velvet cakes. Vegan Essentials has it all, they even have vegan pig ears that actually look like pig’s ears for your vegan companion dog.

4.) Vegan Perfection
I actually just discovered this website for the first time the other day but I am glad that I did because they have a few products that I haven’t seen anywhere else, such as the Vegg Egg Replacer.

They even have a cookbook that can be purchased alongside the product offering tons of different recipes to use Vegg Egg. Other new products I found on Vegan Perfection include Freedom Mallows (Strawberry Marshmallows), Redwood Cheatin’ Pepperoni Slices which are quite large and look delightful, and VegiDeli Fishless Fish Fingers by Redwood.

One of my favorites is their Not-Chicken bouillon cubes, they taste great in vegan chicken noodle soup when you’re feeling under the weather. Another great find was there organic worcestershire sauce, which we all know is almost impossible to find vegan. I found this gem at a Whole Foods in Ann Arbor but they also offer it one their website. Edward & Sons also offers different “cheese” sauce mixes, breadcrumbs, sprinkles, ice cream cones, crackers, fruits, pasta dinners, mashed potatoes and gravy mixes, among many other awesome products.

We were searching for socking stuffers and were really having a hard time finding treats for our dog Gizmo, who is vegan. We came across Brad’s Raw 4 Paws, an assortment of fresh, whole vegetables, fruits, and seeds gently dehydrated to preserve living enzymes and rich nutrients. Free of grains, animal products, fillers, preservatives, extenders, and chemicals, these dog treats are super healthy for your companion animal and are full of kale which is loaded with tons of antioxidants, iron, calcium, and vitamins. These tasty treats are filled with ingredients that help protect against cancer, arthritis, and promote a healthy liver and immune system, but all your pup will know is that he wants more!
