After a visit to The Gorgelicious Store for a vegan bite, we walked a few doors down to an organic food store, Red Hill Nourish, where we were happy to discover held a wonderful selection of vegan products.

Along with organic fresh vegies, the shelves at Red Hill Nourish are filled with a great range of vegan staples, including plant milks (soy, rice, oat and coconut), various tahinis, coconut oils, rice and maple syrups, nut butters and sauces.

The range of refrigerated and frozen goods is small but has been chosen well. Vegan Halfpint Dairy icecream is available, along with their 'Butter Me Up' vegan butter. They also have my favourite Tallyho Farm tempeh, Byron Bay tempeh (which is soy free, made with chickpeas) and Peace Love & Vegetables cashew cheese.

Natural Tucker Bakery vegan slices are also on offer, along with plenty of vegan chocolate options including Pana, Alter Eco and Organic Times. They also have an extensive range of Pukka tea.

There's a kombucha filling station, where you can use recycled bottles to take home either original or ginger flavours, and a few vegan toiletries such as all natural toothpaste, Earthpaste (which coincidently is quite handy at dealing with kombucha breath!).

I'll never forget discovering The Cruelty Free Shop online store back in 2001, when easy access to exciting vegan groceries just didn't exist. For the first time, I could easily buy exciting things (well, they were exciting back then) such as 'Pamarzano' (a now discontinued vegan parmesan - see Bellissimo Parmesan), Lamyong mushroom chunks and Sweet William milk chocolate.

The Cruelty Free Shop product range has come a long way since then, and now boasts over 1500 vegan products which can also be purchased from their recently opened Fitzroy store. Conveniently positioned next door to veg*n fast food joint Lord of the Fries, once inside you'll be greeted shelves and fridge/freezers full of every vegan food stuff you could imagine. Seriously, we even found a vegan tart glaze!

Along with all of the food, you can also purchase vegan handbags, wallets, belts and shoes along with Edgar's Mission fundraising merchandise. Cleaning products, cosmetics, vitamins and books are also on ofr.

As pioneers in the vegan grocery world, we welcome The Cruelty Free Shop to Melbourne and wish them every success.


Babushka Almond & Coconut Milk Yoghurt - Stockists

Product, StockistsThe Good HeartedComment

I recently posted about my discovery of Babushka Almond, Coconut & Rice Milk yoghurt (with pre and probiotics and pea protein!) on The Good Hearted facebook page. This created reader interest in the form of, 'Where the heck can I get some?!'

Flavours include Natural, Cranberry & Raspberry and Apricot which as well as being vegan are dairy/lactose, soy, gluten and cholesterol free. I paid $5.29 for a 250gm tub.

On writing to the Victorian distributor of Babushka yoghurt, I'm happy to be able to share the stockist list with you below. South Australia, I've done you a solid and received a stockist list for you too, see below. For the rest of Australia, please see the Babushka website.
