heard about it last week, but based on the item descriptions, i think they're from macro vegetarian, a line of vegan and macrobiotic noodles and stuff that are pretty readily available at health food stores around the city.

Weird, but cool. I hope it spreads to every 7-11, because sometimes I don't pack for road trips as well as I should...

that's cool. i can kind of get those anywhere, but I never do because they aren't that good. Those would probably be more exciting somewhere where it was harder to get vegan food. They need to have them at truck stops and stuff. i'd be all over that shiitake on a road trip

there's one of them that i LOVE, but the dumplings are all kind of meh. however, on a long road trip, they'd be a godsend.

One of the noodle ones is really good. It was one of those "godsend" times, though, so I can't be sure it was really good or just godsend good.

That would be really cool if they had this at all 7-11s. It would be great to have a complete meal available on road trips. Most of them are just okay for me, but compared to a bag of potato chips, a pack of oreos, or a dried-out pretzel they'd be amazing.

yeah, if they're the macro vegetarian meals, I think they're pretty meh. but I would be so stoked if they started selling them at the 7-11's in Boston because it's pretty hard to get satisfying vegan late night drunk food in Boston, and 7-11s are all over the place here.

i love the noodles with yuba one! i mean, it does kind of just have an lemony/vinegary/acidic-y flavor to it, not much in the way of complexity, but i guess i just really love yuba!

I'm more alarmed and concerned about the number of 7/11's creeping into NYC. It's so weird to be in Times Square and suddenly I'm feeling like I'm on a road trip--a strange and bizarre road trip.

is it weird that i really like the macro vegetarian stuff? i eat the dumplings all the time. (also love that their website says "pastabilities" - how adorable.)

They better hurry up and get them in the Philly area. Especially since they said that was the other area where this stuff was in demand.
