Hello & Welcome to my impressions blog post about VEGANMANIA in Vienna 😀 It´s a 4-day vegan summer festival with music, vegan food and products. You can out some new things and meet other veggies 😉 It´s all about eating philosophy, animal rights, health and plant-based lifestyle 😀 It had been my first time visiting this amazing project and I enjoyed it a lot! Sadly I hadn´t much time so I was at the festival just for one day/afternoon but anyway, it was a great time and the weather was also fine (sunshine, veggie food and happiness… couldn´t ask for more 😀 ) I´m very S´sorry for sharing this post so late (I was there on Thursday and now it´s Sunday 😛 ) but I was quite busy attending the 1st Students- and Youth Theater Festival in Carinthia the last two days 😛 but now I´m back to write some stuff down on my blog again 😀
I arrived at the festival at about 11:30 am to meet a new friend of mine 😀 We planned to enjoy the afternoon together at the festival 😉 It was quite big for me! (I live in an area without this huge community – we don´t even have a vegan restaurant) My idea was to enjoy the day and try out some new things and I was damn excited about it 😀
For lunch I had a vegan burger and sweet potato fries by I LOVE VEGGIE BURGER 😀 I was really curious about it bc I never had a real vegan burger before and I also never tried sweet potatoes 😀 I liked it a lot ❤ It was very delicate 😀 But it was rather expensive (in fact, the festival itself was quite expensive! Quite little portions but not at all cheap … but at least it tasted awesome) 😀 It was pretty great to have the chance to create my own burger 😀 I hope it won´t be my last 😛 😀
For dessert I made one of my long time dreams come true: Ice Cream from VEGANISTA ❤ I follow this company via social networks for quite a while now (btw they released a book lately about how to create ice cream easily at home) and I always got so curious to try their creations (basil, peanut butter, sesame, … here is their homepage if you want to take a look : ) This time I took the chance 😀 and ordered to of their special flavors (specials cost +30 cents extra … makes almost 2€ for a one scoop but the scoops are actually pretty huge!!! and the ice cream is … heavenly awesome!) – I had Strawberry Agave & Blueberry Lavender 🙂 truly the best ice cream I´ve ever got in a shop (and it´s vegan = perfect for little Annabelle) 😀 I can´t wait moving to Vienna to visit their shop often and I promise you : I will write a post about their flavors as soon as I get the chance to try some more 😉
I also saw some of my favorite brands at the festival, for example: JOYA (they offered their milk products to try – I tried their new #glutenfree oat milk), OMI´S APFELSTRUDEL (with their delicate juice) & VEGA VITA (spreads & co; stay tuned – post about the company up soon).
I also tried CLUB-MATE COLA (it´s something like cola but it tastes much better :D)
At the tombola I also won something that made me smile : I got my very favorite cheese 😀 Cheddar Style by WILMERSBURGER.
Finally, here is the list of companies at the festival and some other photos I took 😀 I really had a great time with yummy food, sunshine, nice people and much fun 😀 Next year again 😀
