Pizza and Donuts! And a Free Stuff for You!

Stay tuned at the end of this post for an awesome giveaway!

Last night, I posted pictures of my sweet haul from Vegan Essentials, courtesy of Mama and Papa Crunk. But I deliberately left out the two favorite items in my latest order. I saved the best for last. I may be the last vegan in the world to try Daiya Cheese, and I'm honestly not sure what I was waiting for. Here's my first pack of Daiya Italian Cheese Shreds:

And here's my Daiya gettin' all melty-melty on a slice of Vegan Supreme Pizza:

This stuff is rad. It's way meltier than Teese and tastes way more authentic. In fact, this may be the best-tasting/best-melting vegan cheese I've tried (still haven't tried Cheezly). It was perfect atop this whole wheat crust with homemade tomato sauce, Gimme Lean vegan sausage, bell peppers, black olives, and red onions.

Here's an extreme close-up shot to prove just how melty this stuff really is:

My pizza was seriously amazing, but nothing could top these Vegan Donuts from Larsen's Bakery:

These fresh-baked cuties are available on Vegan Essentials, and they come un-iced to ensure freshness. There's 11 donuts in a box, with the extra space reserved for a tub of sweet, sweet white icing. They freeze wonderfully, so no stress if you can't eat 11 donuts before they go stale (but seriously, if you can't do that, something is wrong with you). Oh, and they're yeasted donuts! That means they're more like Krispy Kreme than Little Debbie. Hells yea.

Here's one that I warmed in the oven, messy iced, decorated with sprinkles, and shoved in my mouth:

Now for the fun part: My daddy (a.k.a. Papa Crunk) called me today and asked if I'd be interested in giving away a $25 gift certificate to one lucky random reader for Valentine's Day. He's paying the tab because he's just awesome like that. So you can order donuts, Daiya, Go Max Go bars, whatever tickles your fancy.

Here's how to enter: Leave a comment on this post letting me know what vegan product(s) you have to order (or would like to order) online because they're not available where you live. If you live in a vegan mecca, like Portland, where everything is available, just mention a product that you can't live without.

For extra entries, tweet a link to this contest on Twitter and leave another comment letting me know you tweeted (or twatted or whatever you call that). You can also post a link on Facebook and leave yet another comment for a max number of three entries per reader.

I'll leave the contest open until Wednesday, February 10th at 10 p.m. CST. A winner will be announced in next Thursday night's post. If your comment doesn't link back to a blog, please leave your email address in your comment (you can write it like this — name[at]whatever[dot]com — to avoid spammers). Your email will be required to send an e-gift certificate from Vegan Essentials.

Happy Contesting!

Aw, the first comment never wins :(

I have a lot of access to vegan essentials but I've always wanted to try Dr. Cow Cheese

Beans, Figs and Katz said...

I am dying to try Daiya cheeses! I want to try all the varieties, or any varieties, but no place in town carries it yet.

taleoftwovegans said...

Aw, how sweet is your dad?! I was JUST today planning all the loot I want to order from vegan essentials (I think half the fun is browsing it all!) and daiya is definitely part of that plan. Your pizza looks so good! Thanks for the giveaway! :) -Eve

Vegyogini said...

First of all, your dad is seriously generous and amazing! Living in LA, I'm pretty lucky, but I do need to order vegan supplements online (Vegan Essentials is my online retailer of choice). Thanks, Papa Crunk!

Anna Graham Shonle said...

We order lots of donuts from Vegan Essentials. And then they are gone in a flash.

DH likes their chewing gum with xylitol.

Also, we order many of our vegan vitamins and supplements from them.

Thalia said...

I always drool over the ABC and Liz Lovely cookies on veganessentials.com because I can't get them in Vancouver...but it costs me the price of a two-way bus ride just to ship the damn things! And who has the time to bus across the border just for cookies (not that I haven't made the time before...)???!!! Anyways, I could really use that gift certificate!!!

Angela said...

you're not the last vegan to try Daiya yet. I still haven't!

Lauren said...

I've been HUNTING for vegan cheeze-it type crackers everywhere and am dying to try the Eco-Planet "cheese" crackers.

This is my first comment but I absolutely love your blog =]

Veg is Sexy said...

Ummmm I HAVEN'T TRIED DAIYA YET!!!!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!?!?! Plus my ex-boyfriend's birthday is on the 10th, I'll be needing some donuts. Just kidding screw that loser! ;)

Yay for your papa! I would love to try the Daiya cheese. I'm transitioning to vegan, and having serious cheese separation anxiety.

Carynne said...

I haven't tried Daiya either, but I hear about it everywhere I go. I finally got around to looking for it last weekend and the store was sold out. So I would totally buy $25 of the stuff! carynnemc[at]gmail

Wow, that's so kind of your dad. If I was in the US I would definately enter!

VivaciousVegan said...

I barely have any access to anything. I live in po,dunk hell!
The closest thing to vegan cheese around here is artificial fake cheese...you know the stuff, it is like a dollar for 32oz. I would like to try Daiya, I was a cheeseaphobe before being vegan, and I miss it alot. I would share my winnings with others....lol, no I wouldn't.....But I would blog about it!

Nikki said...

Oh you definitely aren't the last vegan to try it, I can't find it anywhere here in New Zealand and I'm dying to try it!

T said...

Pizza and donuts! Sounds like a party to me! So good to be off detox...

Melisser; the Urban Housewife said...

Papa Crunk rules!

I can't get DEVA 1 a day vitamins here & I need them for obvious reason. Also, Upton's Seitan!!!

Erin said...

I'm in VA, hours from the nearest Whole Foods or Trader Joes. I would adore being able to get my hands on some Dandies marshmallows, Daiya (never tried it), Lightlife seitan strips, and Clif Nectar bars. Thanks Bianca!

mvegan said...

Hi, so excited to have find your blog thru Cooking for a Vegan Lover on Facebook. I'm a longtime veg/now vegan (12 years) from CA, living in Be'er Sheva, Israel. There are so many amazing vegan goodies that I can't find here and miss soooo much. That vegan cheese looks amazing, I'd love to try that. Some other things I'd love to order that we don't have here; mimic creme, the vegan buffalo wings (I LOVE those!!!), any vegan cookies... I am getting better at vegan baking, going to try the chocolate raspberry cookies from Veganomicon later today :) Thanks for letting me enter! Shared on my facebook just now.

Daiya Cheese is top of my list of I WANT I WANT I WANT!!
Awesome give-away - your dad's the BEST!

Lauren said...

Um I live in Charleston, West Virginia where there's basically nothing. I would love to try Daiya, Soy Curls, and Soya Too!

Thanks!

Veganosaurus said...

OMG those donuts look soooo gooood! You're killing me with that iced and sprinkled version! LOL

I live all the way out here in India. So basically I don't get ANY of the Vegan Goodies! Thankfully, we often have friends traveling here from the US who kindly bring back the goodies we've ordered online and gotten shipped to their US loaction. Plus Vegan Essentials ship internationally... they rock! :)

I'd love to order a big bunch of chocolates. A variety of these bars from Go Max Go http://store.nexternal.com/shared/StoreFront/default.asp?CS=vegane&StoreType=BtoC&Count1=328701198&Count2=245841622&CategoryID=1&Target=products.asp

Yay for Daiya! Ive never tried it but looks amazing! So many things I am dying to try. I would love to try some of Dr.Cows nut cheeses, i havent seen them for sale anywhere around here. They also have some beautiful chocolates.

Gynx said...

I don't even know what I would want to try, because there's so many vegan goodies that I see people posting about that I can't get in north Texas. I'd probably get a Go Max Go bar or 5, but I haven't had a donut in so long and those look amazing...
-Laura

eaternotarunner said...

Um, I've never seen vegan donuts before, those look AMAZING!!

mindy said...

i would LOVE to try daiya cheese!!!

Mary said...

Thank you, Papa Crunk!

Where I live almost none of these products are available. I thought about ordering some daiya a while ago, but it is so expensive with the ice pack shipping... I would really like to try it. I have also never had soy curls, and I'd like to try them in barbecue sauce. Also, those candy bars. I covet them. Okay, I'll stop, because now I'm drooling.

Serena said...

This is so sweet of you :) Because I've been having mega cheese cravings lately, Daiya would be perfect for me :o Especially 'cause it melts (picture: bagel/cheese sandwiches, cheese over english muffins, cheesy yams...'nuff said)

birdfeed said...

I can't live without my red star nutritional yeast!

celine said...

your papa kicks butt! the thing I've been dying to try is Dandies. I must be the last one not to have tried them? oh, and Dr Cow, moo. I mean, too.

Leah said...

I need to try Daiya too!

fenixfoods said...

Have to order almost everything!! I'd love to try the Daiya, but those donuts look amazing,..

Leah said...

And I facebooked!

Carla said...

I would love to try Daiya, it is available here but I have not yet been brave enought o part with so much money for something I've never tried. Also soyatoo in a can.

Tammy said...

Sounds like you have a pretty cool dad!

I live in the east-coast Portland and while we are pretty vegan friendly, there is still stuff you can't get and I have a list going - waiting for Cheezly to get back in stock. Besides Cheezly, I NEEEEED to try some of those fabulous candy bars you posted The peanut butter cups looked awesome!), I am almost out of egg replacer, am going to try Ener-G this time around, We Can't Say It's Cheese looks good... all good stuff!

Dianne said...

I just got Daiya Italian blend, too- best pizza ever!!

I've been dying to try Go Max Go Candy Bars for a while, so that would probably be the first thing I ordered.

Lauren said...

What a fun giveaway! Your dad rules. I've love to try Daiya cheeses. I don't think I can get it aanywhere around here.

Meg said...

Yay, Papa Crunk! I usually end up ordering vegan DHA supplements, and occasionally some junkier food like Sjaak's peanut butter cups.

lazysmurf said...

It would be hard to pick but I think I would go with soy curls. I can't get them here and austin and I just love how easy and healthy and tasty they are.

I got to sample Daiya once and now I'm "daiya-ing" to try it again! I can't get it in any stores around me. Email is mrserinregister at gmail dot com.

The Ordinary Vegetarian said...

This is great!

Newly vegan (3 whole weeks now!) I would have a hay day on this site for sure.

I would definitely get the same shredded daiya as you, looks awesome. I'd also get a Parmesan substitute. Last I'd get the vegan white chocolate chips! I have been looking for some and have been unsuccessful.

Sheridanna said...

Hey!!! Man, your pizza and donuts look amazing! I love your Dad. He's the coolest.

Um, so I would like to enter. I've never ordered a vegan product online, so I'm new to all of it! But, through the info in your blogs, I've always wanted to try Teese, but now I guess I should try Daiya cheese too! And I would love to order some of those tamales and candy bars from your last post! Sooo, I'm pretty certain you have my email, but I can always send it again if I happen to win! Love you and your Dad!

miss v said...

whoa! what an awesome v-day gift! i can't even begin to think what i would order since it's always a struggle to find things around here... but first up i would definitely go for the daiya cheese. i've seen so many blog recipes proclaiming it's awesomeness - i'd love to get my hands on some!

Kati said...

That daiya is amazing - I love it! As for what I would love to order...I've never had any of the Sweet and Sara products, so I would probably go with one of the vegan S'mores. MMM!

Kati said...

P.S. Your dad is awesome!

Daiya cheese looks wonderful; my girlfriend is vegan (which means I'm usually vegan, thank you Jules Winnfield) and the one thing she REALLY misses is cheese, so I'm always trying to find new stuff for her to try.

MemphisWendy said...

I HAVE to try that Daiya cheese!! I've been a vegetarian my whole life but am new to the vegan life and am loving it!

Chrissy said...

I live in East Texas, so I've become a very good vegan chef out of necessity! That said, I thought I'd choose something like chia seeds or daiya - healthy and nourishing - but all I really want are those DONUTS! They look amazing and I cannot remember the last time I had an actual donut. Yum!

I live in Milwaukee, and though it's a fairly large city, Daiya is NOWHERE to be found! Just looking at your pizza is making me drool, so obviously I would stock up on that!

Sara said...

after seeing your pizza, i would love to try that Daiya cheese!! and i bet if I got the Yves meatless pepperini slices I could get my hubby to finally eat something without a load of meat on it! and I'd probably get some primal strips vegan jerky for him too! ooo and an Artisana coconut butter please!

THANKS!

Carrie said...

I would order Daiya....I live in the middle of NOWHERE so it's definitely not in any restaurants around here.

Jess - The Domestic Vegan said...

Aw, what a sweetheart your dad is! That's so nice of him!

My Daiya went moldy before I got a chance to try it when I ordered last summer! If I win, I will definitely order some more of that, and to be totally unoriginal, I would also buy those donuts. I have not had a donut for probably 5 years, and those just made my mouth water! YUM! (I might actually even make some donuts for tomorrow morning now that I'm craving them...)

I'd also pick up some DEVA vitamins & maybe some chocolates in honor of Valentine's Day. Vegan Essentials is my favorite!

Jess - The Domestic Vegan said...

I also twatted this. Hahaha. (I think it's "tweeted," but I had to say it.)

Robb & Nancy said...

I would definitely go for some daiya and protein powder - what a chance!

Lauren said...

I've been wanting to try Daiya for awhile now and can never seem to find it. Thanks for doing this giveaway--how nice of your Dad!!!

swellvegan said...

While I can get Daiya ON pizzas from two local pizza joints, I've never had the chance to try it at home because no stores sell it. It's really the only purposefully vegan product I'd ever want to order online. I've heard people go crazy and get Daiya overload (which hopefully I wouldn't do!).

Jen Sanders said...

I'm very new to the idea of going vegan. I have been vegetarian for a little over a year now, but I notice that most days I eat a vegan diet. I would love to try any kind of vegan cheese. It is one of the only reasons I say vegetarian instead of vegan! Oh, and soft serve ice cream!

Love, Luca said...

I have to order Dandies marshmallows, Daiya cheese & Parma vegan parmesan!

I order vitamin D from the wonderful people at Vegan Essentials.
I'd love to order some Daiya, but can't see myself paying $20+ (because of the shipping) for a couple of ounces of cheese. So, I'll have to do without for the time being.

Amey said...

oh my gosh! Papa Crunk is so cool!
I've known that from reading your blog for all this time, but really!

YES to daiya cheese. We don't have it here locally - so unless I make it up to San Francisco, which doesn't happen often, I have to go without. I really want to try the cheddar variety. Also, I would probably order some Sjaaks nuts and chews caramels, because they ARE. AMAZING.

fun! :)

Heather said...

I love Daiya cheese & cannot live without it!! It's super! I can get it here in Massachusetts, it's just not an easy trek.. Far easier to order it. :)

Trinity (of haiku tofu) said...

After yesterday's post, I went to Vegan Essentials. I did not know you could order daiya for delivery! I've never had it, and goodness knows they don't sell it in Denton, TX, so I plan on ordering it from VE soon.

Tell Papa C he is fantastic and a bazillion little vegans around the world love him.

Sunni said...

vegan donuts - mmmmm!

HeyitsBeth said...

Yay Papa Crunk!

And for a longshot.... I'd have to go with the soyatoo in a box, Cheezly, and We Can't Say its Cheese spreads.

Chocolate-Covered Katie said...

Wow, your dad is the sweetest guy ever!
(Now I know where you got your good genes.)

They used to sell vegan doughnuts here... I loved the chocolate ones. But for some reason they don't anymore :( :(

Bethany said...

I was just on Vegan Essentials this morning dreaming about ordering some Daiya! I've only had it once - in NYC - and it was love at first bite. I want to order some!! Thanks Papa Crunk!!

Vegan Fox said...

How wonderful of your dad! There are so many things to try. Definitely Daiya cheese, Go Max Go bars, and some Liz Lovely sweets for me. Those doughnuts you had look mighty fine, too and I have been craving some :)

Vegan Fox said...

HayMarket8 said...

mememememe! pick me! :) I have been waiting to try this cheese.

hats.cf said...

I live in england and although we can get Sheeze, Cheezly, and Tofutti pretty easily, Teese and Daiya are nowhere to be found! I've found that Sheeze and Cheezly don't melt at all but still taste alright. I would LOVE to try a proper melty vegan cheese. I've tried a little bit of Follow Your Heart (a friend brought it over from America) and that was getting close to melty, but there was still a way to go!

Other things I'd love to get would be the vegan chocolate bars (why do people think vegans only want fruit, nuts, or mint in their bars? I want caramel and nougat too - I want to be unhealthy sometimes!) and marshmallows. Mmm... I want to make s'mores. We had a BBQ here once and I, the vegan, was the only one apart from the American who knew what s'mores were (and I couldn't even eat them because they used non-vegan marshmallows).

VeggieAmanda said...

They use Daiya cheese at a local restaurant in Raleigh, NC and I love it. They do not sell it around here, so I have not had the pleasure of purchasing it.

One thing I can't live without ordering is Sweet & Sara's Vegan Marshmallows. They are awesome. The website says that our local Whole Foods sell them, but I have yet to locate them in the store. In the meantime, I have to order them. I like to make vegan crispy treats, smores, and like to add some to hot chocolate. Mmmm...

Cera said...

Oh man, you can't get so many things around here. I would get Daiya, soy curls, and something decadent like those donuts. My birthday is coming up soon, so I would want to try a vegan cake mix too...yum....(p.s. your dad must be the best and I want that pizza :)

taleoftwovegans said...

Oh my! What lovely looking goodies you got! There are so many things I would love to try (dandies, GoMaxGo bars, Dr. Cow cheese...)
Maybe it's a good thing I dn't live where there is an abundance of vegan products-I would be broke! ;)

Tiffany said...

Thanks to both you and your dad for such a sweet giveaway :)

I can't find soymilk powder, Daiya cheese, or Ricemellow Creme anywhere near here (and I really want to try them all), so I'd have to order those online. And now that I've seen those donuts, I might have to get me some of those sometime (soon), too.

Anonymous said...

Wow your dad's the best!
I'm out of B12 supplements, but this isn't a time to be practical-- I'd go for the Daiya (which I've had once!) and donuts (never!)
Thanks Bianca+Dad!

Dear Papa Crunk,

You are a rock star! So cool of you to be so supportive of your daughter's vegan choices, I applaud you.

If I were to get the chance to order from Vegan Essentials, DEVA vitamins would be first on my list. Despite having some great health food stores in the Denver area, this is one product that just isn't carried and would be great to start taking a supplement that I'm 100% comfortable with.

Thanks again and good luck to all!

Tanya said...

Wow, what a great dad :) And by the way, I LOVE Daiya It. Shredded cheese....I also made my own whole wheat vegan pizza and used it. It was soooo good! But now, I need to try Daiya's Shredded Cheddar to go on some vegan chili! I can barely get any vegan items around here...so I order most of my stuff online.

Holy cow there are a ton of comments on this post! You are def not the last vegan to try Daiya Cheese...I haven't either and I would love to! I can't find it where I am :-( AND, since I don't have a twitter account OR a FB account, this one entry is going to have to be very lucky for me so I can hopefully try it soon!

Thanks so much to your dad--he sounds like a great guy :-)

Awesome giveaway!!

I love vegan essentials for their vitamin selection. Vegan vitamins are nowhere to be found where I live, and I spend quite a but everytime I place an order. Were I to win the giveaway, I would order some cheezly because it's the best vegan cheese I've ever had. The pizza parlor near me used to offer it, but they've since switched to daiya. Daiya is good, but I prefer cheezly. I would also love to try those candy bars!!

I had a daiya pizza in Boston, and it was sooo good. I would definitely order that, white chocolate chips, and marshmallows. Oh and those donuts. Because I clearly would need more sugar.

Rita said...

I'd love to try the donuts! They look great.

K. said...

OMG....I need some Daiya!!!!!!! How nice of your dad! :-) PICK ME!!!!

Been buying All new products and several pure bars and lara bars vegtables vegan bread etc. However one thing I can not seem to fond that everyone loves are HEART THRIVES.

OMGOMGOMOMGMOMOMOMGOMOGMOGMMOGO

I would LOAD that baby up with DAIYA and TEESE. I cannot for the life of me find DECENT vegan cheeses ANYWHERE.

Ma'at said...

I live in Baltimore so I don't access to a lot of vegan products. I haven't used Daiya so I've taken your spot as the official last vegan to use it. I would order it but I also carry the title of the broke vegan :) I love your blog!

Gina said...

White chocolate. I love their bars of white chocolate. I might die without it...

jessy said...

hooray for the daiya cheeze! dan and i found some at our local natural foods store the other day and picked up some - it was so delicious! i'm totally jealous of the vegan donuts - good idea on being able to freeze them, and i like that the frosting comes separate. w00t! your parents are too awesome - that's too sweet of your dad to host the give-away! :) yay! if i could pick something i'd order - it would be those go max bars from your last post - they look rock'n! mmmmmmmmm! also: dan and i made your black-eyed pea corn cakes - they were gloriously good. :) we made 'em gluten-free and i posted what we did on the tester site. i hope your weekend is most excellent, Bianca - and thanks for the great give-away!

Kristine said...

DAIYA...OMG DAIYA. And of course GO MAX GO! I haven't tried either, since I can't get 'em where I live.

Thanks Papa Crunk and Bianca Crunk!

MWAH!

Kelly said...

wow, there are a lot of comments! I'd love to try daiya, but I'd have to order it as it is not available around here. (metro detroit)

What a nice dad you have! Maybe I'm unoriginal or maybe we have similar tastes, but the Daiya cheese and donuts are exactly what I'd order. I have been craving donuts and have yet to try Daiya, so those would be my choices! esmally[at]hotmail[dot]com.

bookworm bri said...

you are so lucky to have such a supportive dad! those donuts look amazing! and i still have yet to try Dandies marshmellows. Totally agree with Daiya being the best cheese ever!

Cole said...

This is an awesome giveaway! I'm dying to try some delicious vegan desserts!

Cole said...

And I twittered!

wantingkneading said...

Like almost everyone else I'd love to try some daiya cheese, but I'm fairly certain it can't be kept cold on the flight to Australia ;)
I'd be picking dandies, and some soy jerky, neither of which I've never had before.
Yay, thanks Papa Crunk, what a dude!

I would love either Dr. Cow or Daiya cheeses! You just can't find Dr. Cow cheese in my area! I deleted my earlier post because I forgot to mention that I both tweeted and posted a link on facebook :)

Kate said...

I just ordered a bunch of go max go candy bars after seeing them on your blog and I'd love to try the daiya cheese and those donuts as well!

urban vegan said...

You little temptress!

Enter me....yummo. I loves VEgan Essentials. Just got my box-o-goodies yesterday and I MUST try this new Daiya cheese. I have fallen out of love with veg cheeses and need to fall back in love.

Nooch! I've had to live without it for about 6 months now because I can't find it anywhere and hate to pay shipping (haha).

Wow, melty vegan cheese. Personally I hate vegan cheese but Daiya might be worth trying.

Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein Shake in chocolate is something I'd like to try from VE.

Laura said...

Daiya, daiya, daiya! I've only tried Follow Your Heart, and it was pretty lame. This would be a great 3-years-vegan anniversary treat.

Your dad is amazing!

WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH.....WOAH!
I think I'd really like to get some Daiya, I've had it once, but I really need some more! Then the Go Max Go bars sound fabulous, oh, and the cheddar crackers, oh man, I'm going to need more than just $25, but I guess I can pay for the extra myself. Thank you so much!

Jamie said...

I tweeted this!
