Three Vegan Products: Toothpaste "Dirt," Truffle Mayo, and Cheese Crackers

I recently purchased three vegan products that are just wonderful.

The first product is called The Dirt. I purchased it here at Vegan Cuts.

This is a trace mineral tooth brushing powder. You wet your toothbrush and then dip it into the jar. Shake off the excess "dirt" before brushing. While brushing, it tasted slightly salty, but I really only noticed the wonderful orange-spice scent. Ingredients include bentonite clay, baking soda, and spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom.

My teeth feel so smooth after using this product. The "dirt" washes off the toothbrush for the most part. It stays a little brown toward the base of the bristles. No big deal!

The next product I tried was a truffle vegan mayo by Da Rosario. I purchased the product here on Vegan Cuts. It's also available here at Vegan Essentials.

These spreads (white truffle and black truffle) deliver an amazing burst of truffle flavor with each bite. And the truffle taste isn't overpowering like what you get with truffle oil. The tang from the vegannaise base is great also. There are bits of truffles in each jar. This condiment would elevate any sandwich or dip. I added 2 teaspoons to a small batch of potato salad today, and it was fabulous!

Finally, I tried Earth Balance's Vegan Cheddar Flavor Squares, which many people call the vegan version of Cheez-Its. I purchased this box here from Rabbit Food Grocery. It's also available at Food Fight Grocery, and should be available at Whole Foods now.

These squares taste buttery, and the aftertaste is slightly like a Cheez-It. It definitely doesn't have that sharp tangy flavor (if that's what you are looking for in this cracker). But they are tasty and crispy and make a nice snack.
