I spent Memorial Weekend in Portland, Oregon at Vida Vegan Conference, a bloggers con. We follow a mostly plant-based diet and this was the second VVC I have attended. Great for writing inspiration, networking…but also for the food, let’s be honest! To say I came home with bulging swag bags is an understatement. I am pretty shameless in scoring goodies to try – and this con had an amazing vendor showcase. A large portion of the items are hiker friendly, always a bonus. So the next few weeks should be boasting many reviews!
Just a quick glance at some of it – and a baby trying to get some 😉
One item that I had to share are these:
Hail Merry Macaroons, which are vegan/gluten-free/kosher/paleo-friendly, that come in 4 amazing flavors. The Chocolate Macaroons are a dream. If you love coconut, you will devour these balls. To put it lightly…I had 2 bags in my bulging bags. I hid them and ate them all by myself. I don’t often hide food…but these were that special. Tuck them in your snack bag to be fueled with sheer awesomeness! But hide them well….you don’t need moochy hiking partners to know about them 😉
