Treat yourself to some animal-friendly sweets

There comes a time when even the most whole-food plant-based vegan craves something sweet and dirty; unhealthy, delectable, and yummy sweets to satisfy your needs.

That's why I deemed it necessary to compile a list of comfort foods you didn't know were vegan (and palm oil-free) - exclusively for your sweet tooth.

1. Aldi's Cacao Brownie Bars

Brownies? Yes, please! Aldi's Almond and Raisin Brownie Bars are the stuff that dreams are made of - and they're vegan! 

2. Jameson's Peppermint Ruffles

These peppermint and coconut creams are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
