I discovered a tonne of delicious goodness, at the Sydney Vegan Festival this year. An Australian owned business Raw Vibes is one of them.
There are a few selected stores where they have Raw Vibes stocked, you can also find them in various markets and they also do deliveries. You can tick almost every healthy term you can think of organic, vegan-friendly, all natural. Whilst at the same time maintaining the richness and flavoursome taste in each one. I purchased the Multiseed Cracker and it was just oozing with flavour. The other thing I love about it, is that in some products the sugar-level can be down to 0.4g or non at all!
The other wonderful thing is that they cater to most common allergens, such as those who require gluten-free, dairy-free and wheat-free food.

I had initially been introduced to this wonderful treat back at the Sydney Vegan Festival. After a little taste of the dark chocolate, I had proceeded in tasting the others and walked out with 3 types! Dreamy Chai, Deep Dark and lucky last Creamy Mylk.
Australian-made, it is not only organic but is vegan-friendly created straight from ‘bean to bar’ (click here for ingredients). If you are a bit hesitant with how it tastes, I am telling you that it tastes just as good but with that added rawness. Less creamy in my opinion, but the sweetness is on point!
Stumbling upon the stall they had held during the 2015 Smooth Chocolate Festival, has made me appreciate premium chocolates. Zokoko specialises in single-origin dark chocolates, made entirely from scratch “bean to bar”, whilst using vintage but powerful equipment.
Whilst their gorgeous and entrancing packages, had immediately captured my attention, one bite turned into two and so on! I am already planning to go to their cafe in Emu Heights, so I can try their other beautiful creations. The flavour of this bar I bought, was the perfect 65% of dark chocolate, intense and extremely smooth. Perfect with a cup of coffee, red wine or whilst watching your favourite show.

I came across this lovely stall, with the most helpful owner I presume who gave me a neat run-down on what I should purchase and try. There was a deal on the day, which allowed me to get a bag of six different flavoured teas! I still have one more to go, but my favourite has got to be the Organic Camomille. All were refreshing and instantly provided that calm through my day.
The cutest thing that attracted me to this stall, was the paper cranes. The simple routine of tea drinking was made more vibrant and provided a sweeter touch to it. All natural and made by a lover of tea, why not try?
Tea, as you are aware I love this stuff and combining it with chocolate… it is practically heaven!
When I saw this at the Chocolate Festival this year, I was instantly intrigued and mind-blown. I forgot the price, but this packet was worth it. I thought it was infused, but no… it is made from the cacao bean shells, making it 100% organic. The taste is not too strong, very light and for me it is still something my taste-buds will grow to love.
When you need a little dosage to your chocolate cravings, I have mine all the time, this first Australian chocolate tea product will do the trick.
Organics for lily
Fruity blends of lemongrass, calendula, lemon thyme, etc is like wonderland happening in your mouth. When you have a sweet tooth like me, this refreshing blend [I prefer it hot] keeps my sugar cravings at bay. Naturally grown in Australia, specifically in Melbourne, it is 100% organic certified by a naturopath.
I think it would be lovely to have, especially in the upcoming Summer season. Just pop it into a cold, iced jar and bam! It is stimulating, healthy and tastes truly like a lemon/orange juice to be honest.
Gewirahaus $10.95 | Tea Infuser $5.95
Gewirahaus is located in the elegant shopping strip, The Strand Arcade in Sydney. I stumbled upon this store, after work, since then I look forward to trying out all their loose leaf teas!
In the mist of the cold, cold Winter season down-under, what is a better way than choosing a tea that can help fight against the colds and flus this season. When I was feeling the chills or a cold that was making its way through, I had a cup of this, which I felt kept the sickness in bay.
Infuse for 8 – 10 minutes and taste: echinacea, liquorice, root, ginger, pepper, hyssop, sage, boneset, elder flower, red clover, lemon verbena, fenugreek – each having their own health benefits.
Tabasco Spicy Chocolate
Oh man, this bar… dark chocolate was amazing, but the spice burnt my taste buds! Watch the youtube video below.
Tokyo Skytree $18
Another find from the MD Ranking store, and this time I purchased this box of goodies which I think is from the Tokyo Skytree? Like it’s those souvenir sweets you get from visiting tourist attractions.
What they are is chocolate, white chocolate I believe, in the shape of the tower. You are given 8 nicely wrapped sweets and let me tell you it was good! Crispy and not too heavily sweet. It’s quite dense and has bits of milk chocolate, biscuit bits inside. For me, it was delicious! Check out the vid on Youtube 🙂
I purchased these merely because of the fact that, one, it was late night shopping night and two, I saw a youtube video of a man eating this once and he gave it two thumbs up! MD Ranking on George St, Sydney, is so close to my workplace that I couldn’t resist check out the store… and little did I know that they stocked up on these gems.
I absolutely loved it! Not too sweet and it just melded all well together. I never knew that chocolate and banana would be so tasty together. Anyways, I tried a new method of giving a review by capturing E and I eating these bad boys. Check this out:
