 There we are listed at the 3:00 demo!

A weekend or two ago I headed down to Bethlehem PA for the Bethlehem VegFest with Dianne from VeggieGirl. We were asked to do a cooking demo which I wrote about HERE. The demo was only a 1/2 hour long so we did some walking around, shopping and eating! I really wanted to eat at the Jenny Kuali’s stand but unfortunately they had a bit of an accident that involved the fire department and sending a few people to the hospital! Good news is that everyone involved is going to be ok. They are very vegan friendly and I might just plan another day trip to Bethlehem to have a meal at their restaurant.

I ended up getting the PA Dutch Brown Bag Lunch from the V-lish stand. The brown bag lunch had a Faux Tuna with Beet Slaw sandwich on homemade bread, Dutch Potato-Onion Soup and a Debbie’s Kitchen Fresh Oatmeal Cookie. The whole meal was great. The faux tuna was a standard mashed chickpea salad. The beet slaw added something special to the common vegan sandwich. The soup was delicious but not what I really needed on what was turning into a warm day. The oatmeal cookie however was outstanding. I wish I bought a few extra to take home. I had other desserts to take home though!

Vegan Treats had their own HUGE stand at the VegFest! I have alway’s wanted to drive to the Vegan Treats bakery and have never done it so I was more then excited to finally be trying their desserts, although I’m sure I’ve had one or two while eating at a restaurant in NYC. You could smell the sugar from at least 10 feet away from the tent and then when you entered the tent you were easily overwhelmed by the sweet sugar smell. I didn’t mind one bit though!  We headed over to their table later in the day after our demo and it was quite picked through but they seemed to have everything in stock still.

I was so happy to see cannoli’s on the table! I ordered 2 of them just for myself since my husband doesn’t like them. I also took home the biggest whoopie pie I’ve ever seen and Vegan Treats famous Peanut Butter Bomb.

I’ve been wanting a Peanut Butter Bomb for years now. My husband and I shared it while watching Breaking Bad the next night and it was everything I thought it would be. I’m at the same time sad and happy that I don’t live close to the Vegan Treats Bakery. If I lived close by I would be there all the time! It would not be good! I am looking forward though to next years Bethlehem VegFest with the hopes that the Vegan Treats tent will be back!
