Beyond Popcorn Chicken

For a high-protein and delicious snack, it’s hard to beat these little popcorn “chicken” nuggets from Beyond Meat. We adore the Impossible chicken nuggets, but these plant-based bites are even better. For one, they are more flavorful (and, for the omnivores out there, they taste more authentically like we imagine real chicken meat would). Also, …

Beyond Meat Jerky

We didn’t even know this existed until we saw it in the store. Having recently tested out Louisville vegan jerky, we could not resist. Flavors include original, teriyaki, and hot & spicy (which is the one we sampled). And wow! Even as not-really-jerky-fans, this product is great (and we’d choose it over the Louisville brand, …

Daring Cajun Chicken

We’d heard about the Daring brand of plant-based chicken, and when we saw it in our grocery’s freezer, we decided to try the Cajun-style chicken pieces. These vegan chicken pieces are, in a word, amazing. Cooked with a little oil in a skillet, they are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The …

Field Roast Pepperoni

If you like a (vegan) meat-based pizza, this Field Roast vegan pepperoni will not disappoint! If eaten straight out of the package (hey, no judgment), the texture isn’t as realistic as an omnivore might like … but once baked on a pizza, it’s so much better. And the taste is amazing! The flavor is spot-on …

Just Egg Folded Eggs

Having tried Just Egg liquid without much luck doing anything but scrambles (not that there’s anything wrong with a good scramble), we were thrilled to learn from a new friend that these Just Egg folded eggs are available locally. (Note to vegans: Always hang out with fellow local vegans to learn about such things, and …

Field Roast sausages

As a fan of Field Roast (everything from cheeses to faux meats), we checked out these apple-maple breakfast sausages. For those who like sweetness to their sausage, the flavor is spot-on; these little links have just the right the spicy-maple flavor. But if you’re looking for a more authentic texture, I’d suggest Beyond Meat (either …

Beyond Meat breakfast sausages

Beyond Meat continues to amaze with its incredibly delicious products, and these breakfast sausages are no exception. There is also a “classic” version, but our supermarket only had the “spicy” variety, and we can’t imagine them any other way: the spice isn’t overwhelming but just the right amount of kick (and while these sausages may …

Beyond Meat Beyond Beef Crumbles

As fans of the Beyond Burger we were glad to find these faux beef crumbles in our local grocery. We planned a Mexican-food feast using these crumbles (they come frozen and should not be defrosted or microwaved), which are described as providing “a beefy kick for any ground beef recipe.” However, though it’s not indicated …

Beyond Meat: The Beyond Burger

We’ve reviewed the Impossible Burger on this blog, but it’s not available in grocery stores, only in select restaurants. And it’s delicious, though we were sad to learn that in order to create this plant-based burger, the company resorted to animal testing. Still, many vegan — and especially non-vegan — restaurants offer the Impossible Burger, and many …
