Ben and I both felt really gross after walking around for so long in the rain without the right clothes and we didn't even go into the tattoo shop (though I dream of getting a tattoo there!). So our first stop was Food Fight Grocery. We thought there were going to be all kinds of things that we couldn't get in Utah, so I was fully prepared to drop a wad of cash. But, as we started walking around, we realized that almost everything there we could get back home in Utah! We we so happy to know we weren't missing out on awesome vegan foods. There were of course some locally made things we can't get, but for the most part we were surprised by how much stuff we have up here. The few things we don't have, we bought:
|Nacho mom's vegan queso|
|New flavors of primal vegan jerky strips|
|Sjaak's chocolate bars|
After Herbivore, we headed into Sweet Pea. We were kind of on our way to dinner, so we didn't get much. We just wanted to try what they had. So, Ben got a coffee and we ordered a coffee cake to share. I was definitely impressed. Ben and I tried making coffee cake once and it failed miserably--so this perfectly sweet, crumbly-topped lovely was amazing. Ben liked the coffee too :)

In the end, I still wish we had a vegan mini mall in Utah. Though 90% of the things we got there we can get at home, it is just awesome to know that everyone within a block is either vegan or vegan-friendly.
