iHerb

I have a new obsession! iHerb.com! This US mail order site has a huge range of fun vegan products. The most exciting thing about them is that their international shipping costs are ridiculously low & the packages arrive fast. Really fast. I ordered this box of goodies at around 10pm on Friday the 3rd & they arrived bright & early this morning, it's Thursday the 9th! That's 3 working days! I don't know how they do it, I suspect it's magic!

The only thing you need to do for your shipping to be uber cheap is to keep the weight of your box under or around 4lbs. The website lists the weight of each product & your cart adds up the weights and also the shipping cost without you having to fill in ALL of your details first. It's definitely cheaper to order two 4lb boxes than one 8lb box so I can order in small amounts more regularly rather than having to justify the cost of say, Vegan Essentials shipping, once or twice a year. This box of goodies cost me £10 in total which is an amount I can totally work into my bi-monthly food budget.

Eco Planet Cheddar Crackers are probably the one product that you can't buy in the UK that I can't live without. I can just about deal with a life without Oreo's or Tofurky slice but tell me I can't have these cheesy salty little crackers & I kinda want to pack my bags & move across the ocean immediately! Yeah, I know I'm being melodramatic but that's how much I love them!

The first time I ordered from iHerb I bought 4 boxes of Eco Planet Cheddar Crackers & some Edward & Son's Not Chick'n Bouillon Cubes. This time I squeezed in 3 boxes of crackers, a box of Peanut Butter Caramel Brown Rice Marshmallow Treats & a box of Late July Vanilla & Green Tea Sandwich Cookies.

On my list of things I haven't ordered yet but would like to buy are...

-Peanut Butter or/and Dark Chocolate Late July Sandwich Cookies
-Crazy Rumours & Hurraw lip balms
-Chocolove raspberry dark chocolate, cherries & almonds in dark chocolate, almonds & sea salt dark chocolate and orange peel dark chocolate bars
-The Vanilla or Chocolate rice crispy treat bars

There are many more exciting vegan products on there as this search for vegan food shows!

If you're going to order from iHerb (get the crackers!) you can get $5 off of your first order by using the coupon code JOJ321. Whenever people order using my code it seems to give me money off my next order (win!) but also you save $5, awesome! What are you going to order?!

  3. I have never tried EcoPlanet crackers before - but after you described them it sounds like I'm missing out! I couldn't live without Tamari Rice Cakes - they are the perfect snack and taste sooo good!

  4. I am crazy for those crackers. In fact, I can't buy them anymore because my partner and I ate an entire box on our way home from the grocery store! Dangerous little crackers!

    Crazy Rumors and Hurraw balms are amazing. I love them. There are so many flavors!!!

  5. That site looks great! I'd heard about them before and thought about ordering vitamins there, but I didn't know they had so many awesome vegan goodies! I love Crazy Rumors lip balms and I'd love to try Dandies, and the crackers you mention sound really good as well. Thanks so much for the coupon code!

  13. You can get both brands of lip balm here - from supersmoochers online or eBay (where postage is included in price but just buy one at first because it is sent out with a 10% off your next order discount code) or from the Vx shop in London.

  14. I love iHerb, but I had no idea how many vegan products they had. I usually just go on to order Bob’s Red Mill and brown rice syrup. Thanks for the tip about the shipping weight, I had no idea that it went up after 4lbs. I think I have some website surfing to do now, I totally want to get some lip balm.
