Vegan Novelty Soaps

Maybe it's because I've been eating strawberries a lot lately, since it's been High Summer here in Houston since about February (sigh....), but these Chocolate Dipped Strawberry soaps from Etsy seller DirtyAssSoaps certainly caught my eye! Don't they look delicious? But no eating them, even though they're 100% vegan! I love the texture of the strawberries and the little sprout of leaves on top, and they even come with a chocolate/strawberry scent! This set has five strawberries nestled in baking cups in a decorative box. (Perfect for Valentine's Day too, don't you think?) My other favorite dessert listed is the S'Mores.

I also love the way the shop is organized: breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, drinks, and dessert! (No wonder I'm getting hungry as I write this!) Dinner is probably my favorite area due to the nice selection of sushi. The nigiri sushi set shown here is really clever, with two pieces of sushi accompanied by ginger and wasabi! Now, if you're worried about soap that smells like fish, never fear. The description notes that the tuna is scented like "pink sugar", the nori (seaweed) is scented like Matcha tea, the ginger smells like a citrus gingerale, and the "wasabi" has hints of eucalyptus, ginger and peppermint. Go here for the entire description.

Lest you think it's nothing but food, the DirtyAssSoaps shop also has a category for toys, games, music, movies, and miscellaneous. Be sure and check the Lego-like building block soaps for your kids!
