I’ve been wanting to create an unboxing video for a while. Although I did a stop motion unboxing video a while ago for Goodness Me Box. it wasn’t quite my style. I think I much prefer a longer form video vs all the short and snappy ones floating around the social media realm today.
If you’re unfamiliar with Goodness Me Box, it’s a subscription box that gives you a selection of wholefood items to sample. They’ve progressed quite significantly since they’ve started. Now we can specify our dietary requirements to get a personalised box – so those who are gluten free, dairy free, vegan (i.e., Me) or low sugar, don’t need to worry about getting things they can’t actually eat.

I tested one of the product in the box – the Health Food Project Vegan Cookie mix (Choc Chunk and Cranberries).
The cookies were so easy to make, requiring only three ingredients to make – coconut oil, water and rice malt syrup (which I substituted with maple syrup), and are extremely delicious! Crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle, just like home made cookies.
Note: If you watched the video, I said that they’re Gluten-free and Organic, I realised now that it is not completely accurate. Although the ingredient list does not mention wheat or any gluten-containing items, there is no mention of it being gluten-free so perhaps the oats might contain traces of gluten. And even though the main ingredient is organic (oat), it turns out that they have a few ingredients that are not organic such as almond meal, chocolate, chunks, cinnamon powder etc. I’m quite happy with ‘mostly organic’ ingredients but some may not be.
Did I tell you they were delicious?
Anyway, I’m very excited to see the impact veganism has on the health food space! Who would’ve thought we’d have a vegan cookie mix and monthly vegan-friendly wholefood food subscription box five years ago (let alone a food subscription anything)? It really is a great time to be a vegan!
