Expo West, Part Two: The Facts


Hi, sugarbuns! How are you?! I’ve missed you terribly. Unfortunately (or fortunately?), I have been super busy. Also, I’ve returned to Athens for FINALS, so things are going to be a little cray cray until Spring Break. Therefore, I shall bring to you the last of Expo West in listed fact-style. I hope you enjoy!

Fact One: We (the VegNews crew and I) found a company that I love. Why? They put forth positive messages that I so enjoy:

OK, let's ignore the svelte part. At least it's not "skinny"?

I LOVE those positive messages!

Perhaps the packaging + delicious taste + veganness is why we awarded it a winner!

Fact Two: For those of you who are new to SnackFace, I got to know the VegNews crew very well over the summer. I was in intern for them! They were kind enough to ask me to join them over the weekend! LOVE them!

Fact Three: You will be able to find widely available sugar-free, calorie-free sodas that don’t kill your intestines. Score! (OK, maybe this is more of a personal success.)

Blue Sky Free, made with Truvia! The cherry vanilla creme was OUTRAGEOUS.

Fact Four: You’ll be able to drink more flavored water without murdering your intestines! Score! (Another success for maybe only me.)

Hansen's Natural drink mixes made with Truvia! Buh-bye Crystal Light.

Fact Five: Heather Mills is a hard-working, down-to-earth chica who loves her business and veganism:

Heather Mills, just slicin' up vegan pizza.

Fact Six: You will soon be able to enjoy delicious vegan pizza at your leisure. Just visit your local freezer section for:

Hayyy, Furk. I love you topped with Daiya (soy-free vegan cheese!).

Yum, yum and yum.

Fact Seven: Justin of Justin’s Nut Butter is a dime. Though I didn’t get a picture of him from the front, this somewhat does him justice:

Mmmm. (And, I'm officially gross. Whatevs.)

Fact Eight: The Clif company is ridiculous. They have attractive bar-mans (I know, that’s not the correct form):

I'm convinced he posed for this.

Clif also has its own wine now. Yes, that’s right. Wine:


Yes, please!

I don't know when this is hitting shelves, but I know that I'd work for Clif in a heartbeat.

Fact Nine: Creepers creep on. They never stop. I do not have a photograph for this, but you understand.

Fact Ten: Vegan pizza made with Daiya is gasmic. Oh, I already said that? Oops:

Daiya daze and I loved it.

Fact Eleven: After sampling, I tried my best to convince the chef that he needed to make this available to the public:

French Toast Kettle Corn! It was delicious!

Fact Twelve: My job all weekend was to eat and opine about it.

Fact Thirteen: I am fooded out and want to do a Master Cleanse.

Fact Fourteen: I took a red-eye back to Cinci Sunday night and slept all day at the H-Unit household in Cincinnati on Monday. (Also, run-on sentence.)

Fact Fifteen: I love VegNews. Always and forever.

Fact Sixteen: After such an amazing and tiring weekend, I needed to come back to Athens for finals week, and to catch up with my Muffin! We had a lovely dinner (salad and vegan peanut African soup for moi!) and met up with some friends afterward!

Fact Seventeen: It’s final’s week. This may mean even more sporadic posting. I don’t know. If so, I’ll try my best to make it up to you on Spring Break! I’m sorry life be crazy sometimes.

Fact Eighteen: I LOVE YOU!

Ciao for now,


P.S. I just edited the numbers because sometimes I have blonde moments. Numbers do NOT go 1,2,3,3,4,5,6…
