Not only are these all vegan candy bars amazing but they also contribute to an amazing cause. 100% percent of the profits, 100% goes back to saving the lives of shelter animals including the most needy…Pitbulls. This cause tugs at my heart stings. I have volunteered at a shelter for a few years and have made some pretty strong bonds with pitbulls. Snickers, Lady, Chloe, Camille, were all some of the sweetest dogs we had. They were just large dogs that thought they were lap dogs. I really think the tide is turning for the better for these misunderstood canines and I support any cause that helps them out. And if I HAVE to eat vegan candy bars to do so well, then so be it!
So buy a candy bar and help dogs like Camille, a 40 pound pitbull that thinks she is the perfect lap dog.
2.) Penny Sparkle Designs
If the name alone doesn’t draw you in then the 100% vegan, 100% original products should. Penny Sparkle Designs is a vegan company location in Encinitas California that was started by two girls, one designer and one artist. The products feature unique hand painted fabric that is created in their studio. I have this bag:
But I love this wallet too and it could be just the perfect little stocking stuffer. All of their designs can be found at http://www.pennysparkledesigns.com/. Happy shopping!

Squash is everywhere this season. There are so many different varieties and so many things you can do with them. From butternut to acron to spaghetti. If you need some inspriration we have many different recipes for you right here on this blog, Roasted Seitan with Acorn Squash to a Turban Squash dish!
4.) Bare Bones cleanser
Another vegan product with another cool logo. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wash their face with a product that looks like it is in a vintage apothecary bottle with a logo of a skeleton with suds on their head? Now the result is a clean face that is not left dry at all due to the tree oil that is in this hip face cleanser. So if you’re looking for an animal friendly cleanser to liven up your bedtime and morning routine, Bare Bones is your answer.
5.)Toasted Hemp seeds
These Mary Jane Hemp seeds are utterly addictive. They are such a great desk snack or sprinkled atop of a leafy green salad. They are loaded with nutritional goodness but that is just disguised as a good tasting snack.
