Cashewgurt & Numista

The last several days or weeks have totally gotten away from me!  I knew for the last 5 or 6 days I wanted to post something but other things kept popping up!

Finally, as I get back into the swing of things and posting again I thought I would share a couple of things with you starting with this Cashewgurt!  Hillary has mentioned it on her blog a couple times or more and I was so excited I finally found it in my region!  Problem is - because I didn't blog about it right away - I can't remember if I found it at Wegman's in Lakewood or Buffalo Whole Foods!


Regardless, here are the two flavors I found and tried.  I enjoyed both of them.  I think the Strawberry was sweeter but I think the Blueberry was more intriguing.

The most important thing I want to mention here is the texture!  This has the best texture I have tasted to date when it comes to vegan yogurt alternatives!  It's not gritty or mealy or grainy.  It's completely smooth.  I do think it was a bit on the thin side but I would gladly have that over the goofy texture if you know what I mean!


In other news...

I know I have been blabbing about the virtual flags I have been collecting on my flag counter widget but over the last week I went 'dumpster diving' thru my old boxes of memories and found my Foreign Coins from over 20+ years ago!  They are from when I had over 120+ pen pals from around the world.  A few of them swapped low value coins with me.

I decided to finally catalog what I had which ended up being about 90 coins from 26 countries!  I used a site called Numista and it's a wealth of info - that is for sure!

  1. I wish we had too here cashew yogurt, it sounds good. I did though buy some vegan yogurt cultures, so I think I could make it myself. You have a nice hobby:)

  3. Yes, haven't seen you around for quite a bit. Hope you had a delightful Christmas. New Year's right round the corner.

    My girl loves the strawberry yogurt that we can get at a supermart here - I think it's from Korea. She said it was like ice cream when eaten straight from the fridge. She would love the blueberry, I'm sure - they do not have that, the ones here.

  4. I have heard so many good things about that yoghurt! I wish we could get it here. Australian is lagging behind in the vegan yoghurt department.

    2. So Delicious (my favorite) and Daiya are the main vegan yogurts I've seen, also Kite Hill but I haven't tried it yet.

  7. The cashewgurt is pretty good! Yogurt has been difficult for me since becoming vegan. It's the one thing that I can't find that I really love. Everyone freaks out over Kite Hill but I think it's too sweet. Waahhhh, haha!
