Product Review: Vegan Bleu Cheese!

Standard

In a world where my salads were a little boring, my chikn fingers were a little bland, and my sandwiches weren’t that exciting…. I found Follow Your Heart High Omega Vegan Bleu Cheese Salad Dressing, and my life is forever changed!

Creamy and tangy like the real thing, this is a new staple in my fridge. It is a little less intense in flavor than traditional Bleu cheese, but I have no complaints here! I like to put it in Gardein Chikn strips with some hot sauce or on an avocado sandwich. I’d pretty much put it on anything! Let me know if you’ve tried it!

I cannot say enough good things about Gardein’s Crispy Chik’n Sliders! I’ve bought these multiple times and I just can’t get enough. The Chik’n bakes up to be moist and crispy, and the bun is soft and delicious. I love putting avocado and BBQ sauce on these bad boys. They come in a 4 pack for about $5. Well worth it, I say!

Have any of you tried these? How do you like to prepare them?

Product Review: Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders

WHOA!

These crispy strips far exceeded my expectations. I’ve tried many chicken substitutes and haven’t found a great one. The texture was off, the breading left something to be desired, or the flavor was just plain boring.

Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Strips have completely changed my mind. They blow every other chicken substitute out of the water.

These strips are extremely crispy and have a texture that is very similar to the real thing. The flavor is delicious, not too faint or too pronounced that they couldn’t be successfully added to other recipes that call for chicken. I’m so happy I tried these!

Carnivore Review: My hardcore meat-eating boyfriend gave these an A+, and asked me multiple times if they were real chicken!

Vegan Cheddar Chips!

Standard

Well, my dreams have come true today! I tried the Vegan Cheddar Kettle Chips from Earth Balance, and I am crying tears of joy! They are everything you could want and more… light, crispy, and a perfect cheddar flavor. If you want to get hooked on a new snack give these a try! If not, stay far, far away. These are dangerous!

Product Review: Daiya Provolone Style Slices

After falling head over heels for Daiya’s Cheddar Style Slices, I was compelled to try out other flavors. These Provolone Style Slices are an exact replica of the cheddar variety when it comes to texture and how it melts. The slices are thick, and melt into an extremely creamy sauce in a minute or two. It gets messy!

The flavor and smell are very strong and I found that I had to wash my hands with soap several times to get rid of the smell. The flavor itself was much stronger and somewhat sharper than traditional provolone, but still tasty. As far as vegan cheese substitutes go, this one is better than most. I would recommend only eating if melted or warmed. I would and will buy this again. Hope this helps you! Let me know what you think of these if you try it!

Product Review: Daiya Cheddar Style Slices

Standard

Well, I’m surely the last one on this bandwagon, but Daiya Cheddar Style Slices are phenomenal. I have had some vegan cheeses that have made me gag, so I put off trying this one. I’m kicking myself for not trying Daiya sooner.

These cheese slices are delicious! The flavor isn’t exactly the traditional cheddar, but it is similar. It melts into a super creamy and gooey grilled cheese, as you can see above. I’m going to try it in Mac n Cheeze next.

I’m so happy I tried these! Do you have any recipes using Daiya cheese?
