Per Vegan Essentials: **The manufacturer is having a packaging problem, so the crackers are out of stock indefinitely. We're sorry for the delay!**

I bought a box of those eco planet poptarts and then read all the horrible reviews and haven't been able to bring myself to eating one. It's sad.

have you seen them anywhere in stores in Boston ndpittman? I remember buying them in NYC but I haven't really looked for them in a few years, I sorta forgot about them (how is that possible?).

And look, Eco Planet, I was always aggravated that you had a normal sized box with approximately 10 crackers in it, but I would prefer those ten crackers to no crackers.

I emailed Eco Planet, and this was their response

Our supplier went out of business and we have yet to find a suitable alternative.


I'm crossing my fingers they find one soon because I love those crackers.

This peeve might have already been mentioned in this thread, I can't remember, but this brings to mind that every time there's a whole new slew of vegan products coming out, I am afraid that I will never see any of them, or that they will get rid of old products in the stores to make room for them. It seems like vegan specialty products still only get a certain percentage of shelf space. I guess we really need more dedicated vegan supermarkets so they'd have room to carry absolutely everything.

i also want to try their cream cheese.
and who had new pizza? daiya again?

ok i want to try all the new daiya stuff.

i DO NOT want to try the nasoya miracle whip (barf)

Yes, this. And for some reason, gluten-free has completely taken over the grocery store that I usually go to. And all of the gluten-free food is MEAT AND EGGS fork YEAH except for the Amy's mac and cheese.

Of course, they're also gluten-free.

I don't care for these myself but I thought of this thread immediately.

ETA: ouch, the reviews are terrible though

Pfff! Stop trying to make new products, Eco Planet, and dedicate all your efforts to brining your cheddar crackers back into production.


Yes, please.

Oh, I remembered another gem from my lunch. My friends were trying to figure out the difference between a lamb chop and a rack of lamb (ugh).

Friend A: Rack of lamb is the one with the things sticking up?
Me: Yeah, it looks like a rib cage.
Friend B: Boooo! (Makes squeamish face)
Friend A: Ewww! That's such a gross visual!

It's so weird to me sometimes how people are SO grossed out by meat and still eat it. I was honestly not trying to be an asparagus, either. To me, that's just a factual description. It looks like what it is, which is a rib cage!



Ugh, along similar lines (in my mind).

Person A: "I was talking with so and so at work and he hunts. I could just never hunt. I could never hurt an animal." (Picture sad face, looking down towards the ground).
Me: nothing. I was trying to reconcile this statement with the crockpot of beef simmering on the counter.

What the fizzle? How come the connection is not made? How is hunting more cruel than factory-farmed meat? The latter literally tears me up thinking about it. And Person A and I have had conversations about my choice to go vegan before, which is primarily for ethical reasons.
And not to pick on Person A; there are many Person A's out there who have made similar comments.

I believe that's employing Snooki logic: It's alive when you kill it. Therefore, cruel.

Southwest Airlines seems to have switched over to Honey Roasted peanuts.

Grrr. I enjoy my free peanuts when I fly. Or I did anyways.

On the bright side, I noticed a 'healthy snack' place in my hometown airport, right in my terminal I usually fly out of. And they have roasted edamame there for only $2 a package! Big bag too. Good stuff to stock up on before a trip. I love roasted and salted edamame. That and a $2 banana make a not too bad $4 breakfast on my 6:45am flights. Beats waiting in the half hour long Starbucks line for oatmeal. That line is worse than security.

flying is the worst. we always tend to buy candy for flights but i realized that if i eat shiitake all day then inevitably by the end of a long travel day i feel like shiitake so last time we flew i made a conscious effort not to eat only candy. we had a semi long layover somewhere and were just like wandering around the airport looking for vegan food. it was a pretty major airport too like Detroit or something.

i finally ended up with a very basic veggie sandwich, a banana, and some juice. not exactly filling.

i think it's times like those that my veganism really annoys my husband. apparently wandering around the airport for hours with all your luggage looking for something ANYTHING with no cheese is not his favorite past time

I am pretty lucky, I usually find stuff to eat. There Subway practically everywhere. French Fries in pretty much every restaurant. But, I also research airports ahead of time. If it looks like slim pickings, I either bring food, or grab a Subway sandwich from my home airport.

But I feel ya. I have gone for over 24 hours only eating candy and chips in airports during delays and stuff. It is NOT the business.

One of my favourite things about travelling is packing food ahead of time. I get ridiculous with it, we eat better when we travel than on a normal day. I figure, I'm out of my element, I'm traveling and tired, I better pack myself good grub!

The last two times we've travelled, we have food designated for the wait at the terminal, and for the plane, and often some snacks stored away for once we get to our destination/the cab ride or whatever from the airport.

Oops! Sorry! Whole Foods has a non-gelatin version but that means 1) going to WF (not fond of the clientele in the one near me) and 2) paying WF prices for something that I should be able to get on the cheap bagged cereal shelf at Meijer.

Most airports I've been in have some place to get a black bean burrito or bowl or something. I'm very happy about Chipotle in airports. We also take our own snacks (Luna, Mojo, Lara bars, nuts, etc). So usually check the restaurant map of the airport, find a place to pick up food, go pick up food then go sit at our terminal.

VegGuide has started listing vegan airport food: http://www.vegguide.org/region/860

My go-to airport meal is hummus and pretzels, a banana, and a soy latte. And I usually get a tomato juice on the airplane. It's pretty much the only time I drink tomato juice, but vegetables can be hard to find when you're traveling.

Chipotle, Moe's, California Tortilla, Rick Bayless (in Chicago), Baja Fresh, La Salsa, and a couple others I forget. Generally, you can get a filling vegan burrito at any of them.

my sis-in-law dropped by and spent the whole time talking about this diet she and my brother are on - "it's like Atkins but can you gradually add in foods other than protein!". So, she's lost 10lbs in 12 days and starts telling me about what she ate for the first 4 days of JUST protein. (It's a plan made by some doctor, Dr. Dukan I think she said). Then she starts asking "what would YOU eat on this diet? Tofu? and what else?" I said something about beans and she said "Oh, he (meaning the almighty Doctor) doesn't like beans. He says they're oily." ooook. Damn I guess stupid unhealthy fad diets are out for me, what a shame.
