They’re thick, gooey, fudgy, moist, and bursting with flavour – and the latest creation from the THICC Cookies and BIGG Brownies team is a banging box of plant-based vegan goodness!
The Fancy Plants Box is the team’s very first vegan box. It’s been developed after many hours in the kitchen and is made entirely from plant-based ingredients, without compromising on the BIGG and THICC-ness – or the flavour. The box includes four THICC New York-style Cookies (in customers’ most popular flavours), and a BIGG Brownie (in THE most popular flavour, of course!). It includes:
- Choc-Chip THICC Cookie
- Cookies and Cream THICC Cookie
- Biscoff Choc THICC Cookie
- Choc Hazelnut THICC Cookie
- Biscoff Choc BIGG Brownie
The idea to develop a special offering came about as a result of a request from a large corporate client who wanted some vegan items for their staff. The team put their thinking caps on and after a few months of baking and taste testing, they had created the ‘recipe for success’ for vegan cookies and brownies – with the signature THICC and BIGG deliciousness! And now the all-vegan Fancy Plants box, which costs $60, has been permanently added to the BIGG and THICC menu.
“It was a great opportunity to develop the recipes, particularly as we’ve been getting requests for vegan goodies since we opened our online store in 2020,” says co-founder, Chris Sheldrick. “Getting the recipes right took some time, because one of the biggest issues with developing any vegan recipes is having a reliable supplier of true vegan alternative ingredients. We needed to be very careful when choosing the ingredients and toppings – and the ingredients we use contain no animal products whatsoever.
“In creating our Fancy Plants Box, we wanted to be more inclusive and provide options that are familiar and full of flavour – and the result is so damn good!”
To make the THICC Vegan cookies, the team swapped the local eggs and New Zealand butter that go into the regular THICC Cookies, for a blend of cocoa butter, coconut butter and coconut oil, in addition to a couverture dark chocolate, which contains no milk. “Our regular brownies base has always been vegan but because the toppings weren’t always vegan, we haven’t marketed them as such,” explains Chris. “But the one in the Fancy Plants Box certainly is!”
The Fancy Plants Box is ideal for celebrating a festive occasion, for sending as a gift, or just because you’re in the mood for THICC and BIGG goodness. And to sweeten the deal, the box is available for nationwide shipping.
