i can't wait to try beyond meat.


I had it in a green chili sauce. Shared it with my boyfriend and he went a lil crazy for it. Really good stuff!

I have only had a few Gardein products - the fresh burgers being a hit with the boyfriend, I think they are OK. I am allergic to most of the other stuff. He digs the crispy tenders and I make them for him on the weekend for lunch.

For meat subs I like Field Roast & Tofurky...For all around good replacement for the stuff I like eating (comfort food) it is Soy Curls.

I think I remember that if you vote for the awards, you get entered into a drawing but only if you complete a certain percentage of the categories. That could be a reason why the most prevelent, nation-wide products always win. Because those the only brands that people recognize, and they want to get in the drawing.

I know that when I first went vegan, and had not discoved PPK or other vegan forums yet, I had no idea what 80% of the companies/products were.

Perhaps if they had a category for best new product, or even best local products, local bakery, etc. it would solve the problem of only the national brands winning. I remember a few years ago Loving Hut was listed with all the other restaurants, which was unfair since it's a chain, and they've since changed the restaurant categories.

But again, so long as I keep winning Cookbook Author it's all a-ok.

One of my friends beat out our local weatherman for 'Best Personality' in this year's Best of Springfield, because he runs a movie review site and thousands of his fans (obviously not local) voted him in. I was really upset because I wanted Mullet Guy of Lawrence Avenue to win.

what fake meat does Amy's Kitchen make? im confused. arent they they company that makes the vegetarian frozen meals like burritos, enchiladas, lasagna, etc?

im one of the people who definitely votes for what they've heard of since i dont have a lot of these fancy pants vegan products and stores out here in the burbs.
