Vegan Cream Cheese

I work at a little coffee shop that sells bagels. So, naturally, I have a stash of cream cheese at home to either bring to work or use when there are leftover bagels at the end of the day. I thought I would do a quick comparison of a few of the brands that I have used.



June Update

Hey everyone! I apologize for not posting for a while. The past month has been full of finals, celebrating my twenty-first, moving, and adopting a kitten. I will be posting much more throughout the summer because I will actually have extra time on my hands.


Contacting companies

I often find myself struggling with how to properly contact companies about their stance on being cruelty free and vegan. Firstly, there is a difference between being cruelty free and vegan, and secondly, there are tons of loopholes that allow companies to promote those labels without being one hundred percent honest.



Hello! As mentioned in the “About” section of this blog, I’m Sophia Redfern. I’m about to start my third year at University of California Santa Cruz (go slugs!) and am double majoring in History of Art & Visual Culture and Literature. I am 20 years old and live in lovely Santa Cruz with my wonderful boyfriend, Carlos, and our fantastic roommate, Jared. I have been vegan for 3 years and counting. I do not consume any sort of animal product, wear animal products, or use products that have been tested on animals or contain animal ingredients.
