It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the YEAR! (Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s time!)

November 27, 2018   /   byrunningwhilevegan  / Categories :  Food, Review, Running

Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s are back on the shelves, and they are vegan! One year (2016), I stockpiled boxes, and found out the cookies have the ability to stay fresh until July. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!! (My bday is actually in July and I opened them for it.) How long can they stay perfect? I don’t know, it was a summer miracle I was able to keep an unopened box that long, and I’m not sure I see that much self-control in my future.

Happy seasonal eating! Or year-round, cause now you have new facts!

Oh yea, Starbuck’s Peppermint Mochas are vegan too (non-dairy milk, no whip), and I forgive winter for being so depressing with it’s short days and chilly weather (mostly the short days, it’s California, and at the end of November it’s barely cooling off). It’s peppermint season, baby!!!!
