Vegan chocolate mint cups, lord

It was naïve to think that after childhood, that after accepting veganism as my lord and savior (metaphorically, people), that York Peppermint Patties and Pearson’s Mint Patties were treats that were in the rearview window, since they were made with dairy. But as individuals and businesses realize the value of veganism, people are figuring out ways to make seemingly all the foods of comfort, childhood and decadence into vegan versions (ethically, people), and Free2b’s Dark Chocolate Mint Cups remind plant-based brains of their youthful mint patty bliss. Free2b’s version is also what they call top 12 allergen free, for all of us delicate flowers and souls—you know, conscientious types—meaning there’s no peanut, tree nut, coconut, soy, dairy, corn, gluten, egg, fish, shellfish, sesame or mustard in their products. Free2b mint cups and other allergen-free treats may be purchased at, Raley’s and natural food grocery stores, and my sincere condolences to those of you with mustard allergies.
