Vegan Meats, Books, and Raw Chocolate

The Date: Tuesday, January 8
The Delivery: Vegan burgers, chunky strips, and chicken-style nuggets from Fry's Vegetarian; The Chicken Chronicles by Alice Walker; Edible Secrets by Michael Hoerger and Mia Partlow; and raw chocolate maca sauce and raw chocolate in assorted flavors from Chocolatl
Staff Pick: The goji-maca chocolates

The DL: With Valentine's Day just around the corner, everyone and their vegan mother is trying to get their hands on a box of chocolates. These organic, vegan, low-glycemic bites are the real deal, and their Mayan temple-inspired packaging is an exotic exit from the usual red lips- and heart-shaped containers. We haven't tried them yet, but it's safe to say we probably wouldn't mind sharing a box of these with our partners come February 14. Actually, scratch thatwe're going to keep them for ourselves. Maybe we'll even dribble some caramel agave (This Week's Must Have) on top for good measure.
