A very vegan Valentine’s Day giveaway–Punk Rawk Labs

– Posted in: giveaway, sponsored post, Valentine’s Day

I was not compensated for this post. I received cheese from Punk Rawk Labs in exchange for this review; all opinions are entirely my own.

Hello and happy Monday! Well, it looks as though all of the hype was for good reason—we received a buttload of snow in New Jersey over the weekend (about 20 inches!). Including some winter wonderland shots below. Also, just as a disclaimer, I fell twice while taking these pictures (full disclaimer: drinking may have been involved) and I shoveled for about 5 minutes until my little arms started to hurt; clearly I need to step up my workout routine.




sorry about the gratuitous crotch shot; I’m trying to demonstrate the knee-deep snow

The snow put a hold to any plans we may have had but it was nice to binge-watch The Affair (almost done with season 2!), read, take a bath, bake cookies, make more veggie noodle soup, and catch up on laundry.

Also? This happened:

four cheeses

Bryan and I had a taste-off to determine which vegan cheese from Punk Rawk Labs we liked the most. Here’s how that went.

Bryan: I’m not really hungry right now. Okay, I’ll just try one…

(ten minutes later, Bryan is back in the kitchen)

Me: Whatcha doing?

Bryan: (sheepish) Nothing.


Bryan: (mouth clearly full of cheese) NO.

HOLY DELICIOUSNESS, you guys. These are amazing. Savory. Creamy. Full of flavor. Awesome texture. Bryan was a huge fan of the nacho flavor; I loved the herb. Perfect pairing for coffee (am I the only one who likes coffee/cheese combo?) or wine (which I tried later in the evening, because I’m not that much of a lush at 10am).

Punk Rawk Labs was started by three women: a scientist turned raw chef, a record store owner, and a nutritionist. Their mission was to offer diverse food options that are delicious and healthy for our bodies as well as the planet. Based out of Minneapolis, Punk Rawk Labs creates cheese that is organic, made in small batches, and free of dairy, gluten, soy, corn, and eggs. Completely vegan, 100% guilt free, and very deserving of the My Pixie Blog GetInMyMouthASAPFoodAward. Click here to learn more about the fermentation process and their flavors.

I have exciting news for one lucky reader—a chance to win a sampler pack from Punk Rawk Labs! Click the Rafflecopter below to enter and check out this video, which gives a great overview of the company as well as their mission.

NACHO of course! Yum! Thanks!

Yum! Those flavors sound so good! Great snow shots, Charlotte! Did you guys like The Affair? I wasn’t crazy about it. Not sure what it was. Anyway, a snow day is kind of fun once in a while and gives everyone an excuse to stay home and relax 🙂

I’ve been waiting for you to review these since I saw pics of them getting delivered. Cheese, in any flavor, is the bomb. I’m not discriminatory of cheese thank you very much. What better way to spend a snowed-in weekend. 🙂

Jen K January 26, 2016, 10:36 AM
