Vegan Tuck Box

We have had a monthly Vegan Tuck Box delivery for about half a year now.  We had the mini gluten-free subscription, which costs £8.50 per month for 5-6 treats.  Classic boxes cost £17 per month and contain 10-12 products.  We are not a Vegan family, but we find vegan products really helpful as the boys need to avoid dairy and eggs.  Being able to have a gluten-free and vegan option is fairly epic!

So what do we love about Vegan Tuck Box.  Well, the Allergy Brothers have actually been able to eat 1 or 2 products most months, and Allergy Dad and I have happily polished off the rest. Vegan Tuck Box often include unusual products that are hard to source in the UK.  It’s also really nice to receive a parcel once a month and a little bit exciting (okay, really exciting, if I am honest) to find out what surprises we have each month.  The photographs show a mini box and its contents.

The main problem we have is that, with the Allergy Brothers’ extensive range of allergies, the hit rate of suitable products is just a bit too low.  This also means that I end up eating the extra treats, which is not really such a great idea as I slide towards middle age.  What I would really like is for Vegan Tuck Box to send out a monthly email with the products that are in the most recent boxes (complete with ingredients lists, please).  Then I could go to their shop and order the treats that the boys can eat.  A simpler improvement would be adding an ingredients list to all the products in their online shop so I can check back occasionally in the New Products section.

For the right person, for example a young vegan leaving home for the first time, this would be a really fabulous present.  The gift options range from a single mini box (£9.50) to a 12 month, classic box subscription (£216).
