Happy #tbt to SWAG-bag-of-wonder stuffing for #vvc2013! Every conference, we think we have an easier way of doing this, and the even more great vegan items show up! And, then we remember we have 300+ bags and need to rent a last minute Zipvan. 💕💕 Heads up, vegan-loving companies: there's plenty of room to grab a spot in the #vvciii bag! #vidavegancon #memories #vegan #vegancompany #vvc2015 #vegansofig #naturalbrands #veganbusiness #thanks

vidavegancon : **and then even more!
vidavegancon : Oh, feel free to check out #vvcthreepickme to see in 2013's bag!
lonestarplate : It always takes sooo much longer to stuff swag bags than you would ever expect!
ameyfm : The VVC swag bags are so over the top awesome!!!
anotherhungryvegan : When is the latest day we can register? I really want to go but I have to be sure it will work with my schedule!

Finally opened up my #vvc2013 swag bag, nearly a week later. I'd like to say this is all of it but that would be a lie. #vvcthreepickme #vegan #veganswag #amazeballs #vegantreats
adoseofdaphne : ❤😍
elizabet__ : Goodness.
wiaco : Still haven't dumped mine.
diannewenz : That's some serious self control.
veganmoxie : @wiaco It took up too much room!
veganmoxie : @diannewenz I wanted to make sure I could take a pic before diving into everything. :)
heidirettig : Enjoy your #antibadmoodsprays samples!

Vida Vegan conference 2013 SWAG bag was awesome #VVCTHREEPICKME @VidaVeganHQ Seriously, @allisonsgourmet almond #chocolate brittle was off the charts. & who doesn't need a year's supply of vegan condoms!? #vvc2013 #vegan #treats #eats #crueltyfree #lifestyle
char_nolan : Fritos?
bigcityvegan : @charnola yes wild card in there they came with the @chiveganfoods Teeze vegan cheese
heidirettig : Enjoy your#antibadmoodsprays sample! :)

Reporting back to @vidaveganhq with some of my favorite things from the swag bag: Everyone get a @cuppow lid to turn your jar into a travel mug cause that is the neatest! I also highly recommend the complimentary meal I had at @veggiegrill the Crispy Chickin' Plate. The Pacific Northwest Kale Chips are the best you will ever eat, promise and cross my heart! Finally, last but not least three cheers for including a Sheer Glyde Dam and lubricated condoms for vegan sexy times. SO MUCH GOODNESS! #VVCTHREEPICKME
jdfunks : @diannewenz it was in the @vegancuts package!
diannewenz : @jdfunks Oh - my bag didn't have one. That's okay though. There was so much free stuff given out I can't complain about missing one thing.
jamiejhagen : @diannewenz I know! I'm bummed I couldn't take Teese and Peanut Butter Co on the plane but whoever gets to eat it at the Portland International Hostel is in for a magical surprise...
jdfunks : @diannewenz shucks! There was a card to pick up the vegancuts bags at their table. Sorry you missed it,I hope you had a lovely time!!
diannewenz : @jdfunks I did pick up the bag but I didn't get the Cuppow. I had two bags of Hail Merry macaroons though so maybe the ran out while assembling. No worries though - I loved all of the giveaways and VVC was tons of fun!
diannewenz : Jamie, I saw that you left some stuff behind. So sad! I'm sure someone will appreciate it though.
jamiejhagen : @diannewenz I had Teese for the first time at the @nycvegfest last year and it blew my mind. And the Peanut Butter Co store in NYC is across the street from Sacred Chow but I have yet to allow myself to go in.
jdfunks : @diannewenz aw, yay! : )

jeanettezeis : Ok, so (besides the keychain 😊) what was new/awesome in the swag bag? Any favorites?
cadryskitchen : The keychain obviously is my favorite! :-) After that I also have enjoyed the chocolate peanut butter, hempseeds, VVC mug, & kale chips!
bigcityvegan - insufferablevegan - jenofur - ashleepiper -

I can see the @vidaveganhq planning meeting now: "Let's give 'em somethin' to SWAG(ger) about!" Meanwhile, I had a hard time even fitting all the #freebies (can you believe that?!) into the picture...though it was really easy to get my cat Ruby into the swag bag. #VVCTHREEPICKME
heidirettig : I wanted to go to the con so badly but it was the sane weekend as my wedding :(
kitteekake : Man, that's an awesome choc peanut butter haul.
writerinthenite : @vidaveganhq Was there a winner for this comp?
vidavegancon : Yup. We wanted to have a date/location for the conference before announcing the winner.
writerinthenite : @vidaveganhq I see, I see

Back in SF & sipping some tea while staring out into my pile of goodies from the Vida Vegan Con swag bag. A heartfelt thanks to the conference organizers @vidaveganhq. It was an amazing gathering of so many wonderfully talented people! #vvc2013 #vvcthreepickme #vegan

What remains of my swag & prizes! A lot of snacks were consumed over the course of the weekend ;) (Plus my slacker self missed out on some by sleeping in.) #obligatoryswagshot #VVC2013
ty_vampira_bitely : That cereal box is full size, for reference! @jennaohale got a black tea kombucha kit in there!

There was a trivia contest I never would have entered had I known in advance what I was putting my name into the bucket for, but I got picked to be on one of the two teams up on stage. I'm glad I didn't bow out! Everyone on both teams got prize bags! My team "lost," but we were all kind of clueless. Haha! My teammates and I each got a bag of Vega smoothie mix, Vega One bar, "The 4 Ingredient Vegan" and "Crazy Sexy Kitchen" cookbooks, Surf Sweets gummies, Field Roast Grain Meat Co t-shirt and freebie coupon, @chicagoveganfoods Dandees marshmallows, coupons for THREE cans of Amy's soup beans or chili and one for anything they make, free Earth Balance product coupon, and a coupon for a free @daiyafoods bag of "cheese" shreds! Plus some Leahey macaroni and "cheese" and Newman's Own pretzels that have gluten. #vvc2013 #vegan #glutenfree #majoraward
invisimom : I think you're coming home with enough loot you can skip grocery shopping for a few weeks. 😉
moony_1 : That's a pretty decent "losing" prize!
becky_r : You guys were great!
ludicrousmama : @becky_r Haha! I almost cried once I realized what that whole putting your names in the boxes thing meant. I really hate that kind of stuff. Luckily they were so silly and fun and who cares and the rules kept changing, and my whole team was as shy and unknowledgable as me! So it was actually kind of fun. I didn't realize those bags meant prizes for everyone until almost the end.
ludicrousmama : @invisimom No sh!t! My husband is gonna be so pissed! We have soooo many snacks and samples and subscription boxes stuff right now! Haha!
