Mail. After the age of about 15, it generally isn’t anything you want to be receiving. Phone bills, credit card bills, Jehovah’s Witness pamphlets, eviction notices… urgh! Enough already!
Wouldn’t it be great if your mailbox could just be filled with delicious snacks instead? Well, that it can my friends; That. It. Can.
In fact, ours already is! A subscription box of tasty treats wings its way to LK HQ on a monthly basis. How, you ask?
Well the team at Vegan Tuck Box showcase a selection of yumminess 12 times a year, turning mailboxes around the globe into personal vegan minibars. And you totally don’t have to be vegan to subscribe. In fact, we tested out the contents of this years’ June box on a family of inquisitive meat-eaters so we could bring to you an honest review.
Meet the family of our Editor’s better half:
