Awesome Fucking Product Reviews

It’s the best time to be vegan right now.  The movement is growing rapidly and new products are coming out daily.  There are some good products and then there are some amazing vegan products.  Many come with a higher price tag than dairy or meat equivalents which is shameful since they don’t come with added antibiotics, abuse, or slaughter.  The vegan market may not be as large and popular as the giant super stores’ butcher and deli/cheese shops, but oh how we are growing in numbers and products. We will continue to grow.    Most of us don’t have unlimited budgets to purchase every new item as soon as it hits the shelves, so today’s blog is all about reviews on some of our favorites.

 

just

 

This is the very best vegan mayonnaise we have ever tried.  We always have some in our refrigerator. We put it on vegan lunch meat sandwiches, mix it in with my “famous” chik’n salad, and add it to SO Delicious unsweetened plain yogurt to make sour cream, ranch dressing and lots of dips.  The company that makes Just Mayo was sued by Unilever (producer of Hellman’s mayonnaise) for false advertisement, for not containing eggs, when Just Mayo became extremely popular extremely quick.  Due to backlash, eventually Unilever dropped its suit.  Conveniently, they soon debuted their own vegan brand of mayonnaise.  Won’t try it even if it’s on sale.  Just Mayo is our only mayo!

 

butter

 

 

 

 

Since becoming vegan over three years ago, I haven’t found a butter spread that doesn’t taste like chemicals and off flavor.  We found Melt which was ok, but pricey.  We thought that Smart Balance was vegan, but their Vitamin D additive was not.  Earth Balance was just horrible tasting.  Country Crock was cheap and tasted that way.  We have tried Miyoko’s products, but few and far in between; only when at a vegan specialty shop 60 miles away.  We knew her cheese products were very good, but we hadn’t tried her butter.  I was shopping in Kroger about a month ago when I spotted her vegan butter.  The price was $5.99 for 8 oz.    OMG, this is so close to the taste of real butter.   It melts. It has the same consistency as dairy butter. There is no chemical taste. It’s delicious.  No, it’s to die for good and nothing had to die for us to get that wonderful taste.  I can’t wait to make frosting with this butter over the weekend for my birthday. It’s truly in a class of its own.

meatballs

 

Lightlife Meatballs are fairly new for us.  Captain UK made a pasta and marinara sauce a few weeks ago and added these gems to the sauce. Oh my my they were fucking delicious.   They were so good, that the omnivore children ate them up too.  We’ve made many more dishes with them including meatball subs loaded with vegan cheese and sauce.  I am seriously considering taking a large crock pot full of meatballs to our next work potluck to share.  I would bet my last dollar that none of those bastards would even second guess them being vegan.

crumbles

 

Following that same note, Lightlife crumbles are just as awesome.  I put them in my lasagna recipe, use them for tacos, and stir them into my chili recipe.  Their lunch meat slices are very good too.  We use their products often and have always been satisfied.

procheese

 

Follow your Heart cheese is great cheese.   We’ve had the provolone and cheddar.  Like most great products, this brand is a little pricey, but so worth it.  We love love love love love their Gary!  Follow your Heart Rocks!

Breyers nondairy Cookie’s and Cream ice cream is the bomb, thee fucking bomb.  It is so good, I made Captain Uk an ice cream cake for his birthday with this glorious ice cream for vegans and dairy sufferers. It didn’t last long.  No one could tell it was vegan.  They have a peanut butter nondairy flavor too.  We haven’t tried it YET, but I am sure it’s just as amazing. I know some people may decide not to ever try this ethical ice cream from an unethical company.  I understand their stance.  My stance is that if they produce it, we will come.  Eventually, more and more sales of ethical products and less and less of unethical products because of demand, will only strengthen our movement.

ice cream

 

This is just a very small sampling of our vegan reviews on great food products.  Many more to come.  We love to experiment and try new things.   Life is good.  Being a vegan is great.  Vegan recipes are at an all-time high on the internet.  Animal rights are flooding the airways (rightly so)! People are slowly but surely waking up to their own health issues that must be addressed.  Climate change is real.  The environment is suffering. The time to act is now.  We can do this, one cruelty free, delicious step at a time.     Enjoy your food!
