    I am so jealous of all your eating adventures!!

    I walk around the city dying to try new places but I cant afford them 🙁

    How do you manage this? Any tips?

    So Fun! 🙂 Makes me want to hop in the car & head out on an adventure too.

    Looks like you guys had a great time! I especially love the looks of that vegan twinkie, ha. I haven’t had a twinkie in years and years either but I’m sure it’s a kind of taste that one simply doesn’t forget ; )

    I’m impressed with your restraint at only purchasing 4 items at the vegan store. My eyes would’ve been too big for my wallet!

    Vegan Freak sounds a little like Sidecar here in Seattle, all vegan! I wish those Hail Merry snacks would make it up to Seattle.

    Sidecar also has the vegan twinkies and chocolate covered ones. Chris says they are really good.

    We pass through Denton on the way to my grandparents from time to time, so I’ll have to plan time to stop by the store. I’m impressed that it even exists in North Texas, as that isn’t exactly the most veg friendly area.

    I loved road trips pre kids – glad you are having fun with your man!

    I would have gone crazy in that VeganFreak store!
    OMG…a twinkie…I haven’t had one of those in years. I would have to think that a vegan one would rock! :o)

    Wow, what a bonanza!

    Here, I thought you were on your way to Living Light Academy to claim your prize and start to work in their kitchen. I’m glad you took this vacation beforehand!

    Great photo of you two at the end there! You should run a caption competition for that.

    Sounds like an exhausting but enjoyable whirlwind! I’m curious to see what’s in store for you next, Ms Hot Chef!

  12. Aubrey

    Ah where is this place that’s where I live!

  13. Hannah

    Yeah, look, you know I love grocery stores and the idea of a vegan-specific store blows my mind, and I’m super envious of Hail Mary and would give my pants right now to try those smoothies you keep rhapsodizing about (see what I did there?)… but I think I’m gonna go chill with my other KC friends instead. 😉

    I need to hit this place up when I am in North Texas. We drive that way all the time!!

  15. Elizabeth@The Sweet Life

    How adorable-love the look of that store!

    So, I’m blaming it on my period (TMI, I know), but that twinkie looks freggin’ ridic right now… Cravings, anyone!? Yeah.

  17. Ellie

    What a fun place! And the foods all look amazing~

    Vegan Freak looks so great! I wish there was a store like that where I live.What’s a twinkie? I’m from the UK and we don’t have them…..I’ve heard of them though

    Hi! I’m a lurker on your blog and found out about Bliss Raw Cafe from you post….and went there tonight. I had the spaghetti and meatballs. It was yummy! I can’t wait to go back!

  20. Sarah

    It all looks great but I’m pretty jealous of that twinkie! I haven’t had one in…11 years? Not even vegetarian, gross “real” twinkies.

  21. Jen

    A vegan twinkie?! NICE!!!! I am loving that store, I would have spent our savings in there 😉

  22. Christine

    Glad you had a great time – waht a cute little shop, and a cool name – “they” all think vegans are freaks, anyway, so why not name the store that way?
    I too don’t know what a twinkie is? Looks cake like with a creamy middle? Mmm

  23. Tanya Alekseeva

    Amber! You really crack me up!! I love it how the world knows everything you are eating hehe. I feel like a secret spy (well not so secret anymore). As always… love your posts xxx

    Man! I didn’t even know about that shop! WTF?! Looks fab!

    I got myself some of that Hurraw chapstick when I was home. I am *trying* to save it until I run out of my current two tubes of other stuff I’ve got going on – hate to have too many in the rotation – control freak thing… Not sure how much longer I can hold out, though. Finding myself applying the old chapstick way too often, just so that I can use it up! What do you think of it?!

    Yummy! Got to love vegan twinkies! By the way I think the brand of the twinkie should be called a Dillo. The bakery near me makes the vegan twinkies and ships them to many different vegan stores and that’s what they’re called. Here’s the website for the twinkies for anyone who is interested:http://www.caketastrophe.com/

    I’m jealous of those smoothies they look and sound so good!
