A few years ago, after I had gone vegan, macarons started trending. Thanks to The Nibbling Rhino, I recently had my first macarons! Vegan macarons that come in all sorts of colours and flavours.
the nibbling rhino
The Nibbling Rhino is a Cape Town-based gluten-free bakery based in Woodstock that is not 100% vegan but is mostly vegan. Stephanie started The Nibbiling Rhino in 2020 so that she could provide people with allergies and intolerances with affordable but delicious treats. Stephanie makes cakes, cupcakes, cookies, macarons, truffles, fudge, and more. She also does custom orders, so I’ll be sure to keep that in mind the next time I have an event that needs some delicious treats.
the ingredients & the packaging
Stephanie makes 10 flavours of gluten-free vegan macarons and so far I have tried 5. There was a matcha one I ate before taking photos. 😝 The outer cookie part is made with Aquafaba, sugar, almond flour, and vegan-friendly colouring. The filling is either a vegan buttercream or ganache. The vegan macarons are soft and sweet, so if you love sweets these are a must try! I bought thems packaging-free by taking a reusable glass food container to the VGM and asking The Nibbling Rhino to put them straight into my container.
where to buy?
I bought these at the Vegan Goods Market, but you can also buy them online on The Nibbling Rhino website. They deliver to Cape Town and surrounds and also offer free pickup options from 2 Ravenscraig Road, The Iron Works Building, Woodstock. If you want to pick up, please select “local pickup” on the checkout page.
