It’s not often that I approach a company to let me promote their product. I’ll be honest and admit that I do receive a fair number of emails from vegan companies wanting to send me free product in exchange for promo. And sometimes, I end up getting some pretty sweet swag out of the deal.
But it’s honestly kinda rare that I will go out of my way to endorse a product unless I truly and wholeheartedly LOVE it and believe that my fellow vegan meathead readers will love it too.
In fact, I almost took on a legging sponsor once whose product was quite “meh.” And instead of being lured into the tempting world of affiliate marketing, I decided that I cared more about the ass of your gym pants NOT ripping while you’re squatting. So I politely declined.
I’m sharing this story with you because I always wanna be real on my blog. And I hope I always provide valuable blog posts. So with all this being said, today I’m sharing a new fave find that I think all you dieters, plant-based health freaks, vegan bodybuilders, sugar fiends and protein powder haters will truly love.
Behold: Herbaland’s Vegan Protein Gummy!
I discovered these bad boys a couple of weeks ago at Veg Expo in Vancouver. And as an admitted candy addict AND health-conscious vegan hippie meathead, my mind was officially blown when my friend presented me with a sample bag.
Who doesn’t love gummy candies?! And what vegan hasn’t felt sadness upon learning that EVERY single vitamin gummy in existence has either gelatin or beeswax in it?!
When I ripped open the bag and started eating these super tasty gummies, I immediately thought of my clients who loathe the taste of protein powder. Personally, I absolutely LOVE eating and drinking Purely Inspired protein powder and bake with it all the time. But for whatever reason, so many of my clients think my “protein pudding” is repulsive. And to them, I introduce Herbaland’s Protein Gummies.
Check the profile: one 55 gram package contains no fat, next to no sugar, is only 180 calories (very comparable to a scoop of protein powder,) non-GMO, sugar and gluten-free AND contain 10 grams of protein (sourced from 100% Canadian pea protein, eh?)
They’re also the PERFECT pre-workout or travel snack for all you busy veegs who are constantly asking me what protein bars and “quick and easy” grab-n-go snacks I recommend. My answer is now a bag of Vegan Protein Gummies! You’re welcome. 🙂
I also dig that Herbaland is a Canadian company and their protein gummies are organic. And if I haven’t sold you on them already, these are a sugar addict’s savior!
Remember kids, protein helps fill you up so you crave less fat and carbs. Protein is also what increases muscle tone and definition which will help to create that lean “hard” look we all strive for!
I will say that they’re a little high in carbs (at 36 grams per package) so my suggestion would be to have them pre or post-workout. But any time is delicious because mmmmmmm vegan bodybuilder candy….
Herbaland gummies also come in a bunch of fruity flavours and are preservative free for anyone wondering. AND they make a bad-ass B12 and D3 vegan gummy vitamin that I’ve been eating every morning (and trying REALLY hard to stop myself at one…)
Okay I think I’ve praised the Herbaland team enough seeing as they’re not even paying me for all of this ass-kissing! 🙂
Herbaland was, however, kind enough to give me a discount code for you to buy (and repeatedly purchase) their amazing vegan protein gummies.

Hope you like my “fave new find” as much as I do. I’m literally eating a bag while I type this…
Let me know what you think! Peace out, vegan fit crew!
