Searching Google regularly for new online vegan shops here in France, I’ve recently discovered the opening of a new online boutique: The Vegan Shop.
It’s specialised in foreign vegan products (USA, United Kingdom, Italy…), and offers a wide choice of items: vegetable cheese, pasta, mayo, sauces, organic food, indian and Japanese specialities, cookies, egg replacer, vitamins, beans, shampoos, softeners, animal products…
The only thing I didn’t find is toothpaste, but I’m sure it will be added soon since I know they are always looking for new products to add to their shop!
The first thing I noticed while “window-shopping”, before making up my mind and buying, were Daiya products: they are impossible to find here in France and I was looking forward to tasting them. There is one German online shop selling Daiya, I think, and you can find it in UK, but delivery costs are a bit out of (my) reach.
Then I was happily surprised and attracted by the story of the onlineshop-owner(s). A French girl – and her husband – who studied in Japan and then moved to Edimburgh (my beloved Scotland! It was a sign!). When they moved back to France, they decided to open a vegan shop, and sell the vegan products they used to find in Scotland and couldn’t find here.
A great dream came true! Don’t you think?
Last but not least, The Vegan Shop website is fresh, nice and easy to browse!! 🙂 You can easily find what you are looking for and much more: information about veganism, ebooks, links, FAQ…
Friday evening my eyes were really bigger than my stomach (day 7 of my juice fast) and in order not to think about food I really needed to please myself … 🙂 buying food: which sounds like a contradiction but it’s not…or maybe it is…so let’s say I was just trying to find the basic vegan products not available where I live! 🙂
So, rephrasing…. last Friday I needed to order very necessary, healthy and tasty food and I decided to try this fresh looking new shop! 🙂
By the way, do not forget that with a 70€ order, shipping is free throughout France (standard TNT delivery :1 day)!
Here’s what I ordered:
|Daiya Cheddar style slices – Provolone en tranches à fondre|
|Daiya Provolone style slices – Provolone en tranches à fondre|
|Sheese Smoked Cheddar Style – Cheddar fumé|
|Jeezini slices – Jeezo Santi
|Cofresh Hummus Chips – Chips de houmous au sel marin
|Meridian Tikka Masala Sauce – Sauce Tikka Masala
|Organica white bar – chocolat blanc
|Engevita yeast condiment with B12 – Levure maltée & B12
|The Vegg – Jaune d’oeuf végétal
|B12 Vitamin (500 µg)|
|Biona Maple syrup waffles – Gaufres au sirop d’érable
|Kallø Organic mushroom stock cubes – Bouillon cube champignons – organic
|Everfresh Sprouted spelt bread – Pain à l’Epeautre germé – organic
Cherry on the top: due to a TNT delivery issue, Mrs Alduc called me personally to propose a different delivery option for me to have my parcel within 24 hours! Tip top! 😉
So don’t think twice, if you live in the Hexagon, you are vegan and looking forward to tasting all this goodness, and many other great vegan products usually unavailable in France, I suggest you to have a look at this fantastic new online shop: http://www.theveganshop.fr
And now it’s a waiting game…3 more days before being able to taste the hummus chips, will I be able to resist?? 🙂
