Tofurky Report

Bratwurst-style meatless product....

Is very bready. Like bread with bratwurst spices in it. Not worth the steep price tag (we had a gift card and decided to do an experiment).

If you are vegan have have been forever, this product might be just the thing if you are at a cook-out or somesuch.

If, however, you enjoy meats of all kinds on a regular basis, tofurky will most likely be less than appealing to you and the beans you made as a side dish will gladly get eaten instead.

While eating tofurky we had an interesting lunch time conversation/debate surrounding the possibilities of nanotechnology building better meatless meat products by way of atomic rearrangement. Call it nanomeat. The peta crowd might actually approve. My husband, on the other hand, would rather eat beans and critters, as appropriate.

My thoughts: It might actually be the pharisee phood of the phuture that would enable this hypoglycemic to take Lent to a whole new level....who knows?

I prefer the UnTurkey to the Tofurky - better taste, texture, and the Tofurky leaves my body with some, shall we say, aftereffects that the UnTurkey doesn't.

Have never had tofurkey...will never have tofurkey willingly...

What the hell is it with fake bacon made of soybeans that costs $3.49 for 5 ounces of food? The energy balance has got to be something like 500 calories for growing, processing, and transporting for every usable human calorie!
