What goodies should I order for myself?

Hi everyone!  I have been a little bit MIA lately because I just finished Week 1 of my Teach for America summer institute.  It is the most stressful thing ever.  It involves getting up at five, taking the school bus to my school, teaching, attending workshops, taking the bus home at 4:30, and planning my lessons all night.  We eat at a dining hall, so of course vegan goodies are nonexistent.  The lunch they prepare for me to take to school everyday is ALWAYS the same thing--a measly salad with a scoop of hummus and a rock hard peach or plum.  I am going to order myself a box of something-or-other to have as a treat/reward for surviving an ass-whooping these next four weeks.  Something like cookies, candy, chocolates, SOMETHING. 

Watch should I buy for myself?  I rarely order things online, especially vegan things, so where can I shop?  I can't afford anything too expensive.

I've never bought vegan food online!  ??? What is it that you're REALLY wanting?? ?? ?? ??

The lemon poppyseed cookies mentioned above are great,

I say get some crazy extracts, specialty cocoa powders, matcha powder, espresso powder, etc for baking!

Want some treats? There are a few HFS's near my office (seriously! - AND I FOUND TECCINO AT ALL OF THEM!!!!!) and I could pick you up something... I dunno... maybe larabars, anything chocolate (chocolate covered blueberries, anyone?), cookies, fancy tea... I'd bake you something and send it, but I don't trust myself in the kitchen these days.

Send me your address at school, and maybe you'll get something in the mail soon...  ;)

yeah, it sounds like its time for another gift exchange!  :)>>> i was thinking about that the other day too.

i've heard amazon.com has vegan stuff and its easy to order from. you have to get like cases of stuff, but that isn't really that bad if you love the stuff.

get these:

I love those snap peas!

I haven't bought much food online either, but we'd never seen vegan chocolates in a real live store around here, so I got these for my husband for Valentine's Day:  http://www.rosecitychocolates.com/vegan-chocolate-selection.html  They were worth every calorie - but they're pretty expensive.  I think http://www.veganstore.com/ has vegan chocolates that are a little more affordable.

I also highly reccomend the ABC cookies--they are soooo good! And also a second on the rose chocolates! I am dying to buy a box of them--but I can never justify the cost (or the fat!) but they would defintely make an extra special treat for yourself!

You should also check out Chicago Diner! They mail order there cakes--which are Oh So YummY! I am luck enough to pick up slices at my Whole Foods--but I know a lot of WF's don't carry them since they ship from Chicago.

Big hugs to you for all your going through--I hope you havea good time despite the suckage!

ABC  :o  Is it like gum; do they come pre-chewed?  That might be helpful to our crazy busy friend.  It would save her time.  I'll pitch in and help with the ABC part.

KMK, you need to find yourself some fun eclectic stuff on ETSY:
http://www.etsy.com
This is a marketplace for  handmade goods. I like it because I have a lot of unique people come and go in my life, but I can always find a suitable gift there. e.g. my last gf was very "artsy" and loved busy filigreed (extremely gaudy) silver stuff and I found an artist there who made just the kind of thing she liked.  ...I also paid a LOT of money once for some OOAK anthropomorph stuffed cat dolls I was buying for my niece. When they arrived though, they reeked like an ashtray so I ended up throwing them out. 

Look around there though, lots and lots of stuff.

Here's an idea that may not require mail ordering:

get yourself a fine bag of vegan chocolate chips (ghiradelli even has one)
a great jar of natural peanut butter

take a spoonful and a handful and you will be satisfied for hours!  (i would know, I do it daily)
