Today marks another great week for new music! Philly underdogs turned heroes of pop punk, The Wonder Years, released their Hopeless Records debut, and our good friends in The Swellers put out Good For Me, on my alma mater, Fueled By Ramen Records. Easily one of the most promising albums I’ve heard this year, Good For Me, delivers honest punk rock, seeped in nostalgia and a sound that pays homage to the Michigan natives’ garage band days, while still sounding like it could fill arenas. Foo Fighters—watch your backs!

You may also recognize The Swellers from seeing singer Nick Diener and drummer Jonathan Diener on our list of Sexiest Vegetarian nominees! Nick and Jono have been repping peta2 for years, and now it’s your turn to pay them back by voting your little vegetarian/vegan hearts out, and by picking up their new album of course!

For your chance to win one of three autographed copies of the new CD from The Swellers, leave a comment below listing your favorite “good for me” vegan treats. Entries must be received by June 21, 2011. Winners will be chosen at random and notified on June 24, 2011. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited by law.

    Vegetable ramen, Veg. Chow mein. and I love Avocado sushi!
    but boomchocoboom chocolate made with rice milk is DI-VINE. 😀 I also love peanut butter cookies! [I love a lot of things though! It’s mostly cause I love cooking/baking.]

    Growing up as a Buddhist and vegetarian means accidental vegan meals… so, I think the best vegan treat is natural stuff! Like mom’s accidental vegan steamed dumplings with mixed mushrooms, carrot, bamboo, onions dipped with soy sauce! No need for vegan ‘labeling’ – just honest animal-free food! 🙂

    My favorite “good for me” vegan treats are almond fudge brownies, Banana Cream pie, Peanut Butter Chipwich (ice cream), White chocolate cheesecake and Double Chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies. The list can go on and on but I’m stopping myself because I’m starting to get hungry :p

Hummus is nummy too. I tried Tofutti Cuties and they are so yums. I would name more but they can’t come to mind right now.

    My favorite ‘good for me’ vegan treat are the Morningstar Farms Hickory BBQ Riblets. I always offer them to people who deny that meat-free foods can taste not only good but, better than meat!

    Homemade bagels, tofu chocolate pudding, vegan oatmeal cookies, soy or rice lattes and hummus are among my favorites. Especially hummus, I think I eat my weight in hummus every month.

    Well, The first song from The Swellers “Good For Me” album I ever heard was ‘Best I Ever Had’ and the first time I heard that song I was eating Vegan Cupcakes so vegan cupcakes would definitely be my favorite “good for me” vegan treat. (: (Not so “good for me” though)
