Yum, can't wait to try it. And 65% less fat than a regular burger

And after making "beef" and broccoli with Gardein's beefless tips, I'm totally in love with their beef substitutes! They do it SO well. I can only hope this burger is good. Oh my GAWD I want to try it!

I can usually find a decent number of their things at my local natural markets... But if I don't see the burgers at any of those, I'm definitely going to request them. I've had a surprising amount of luck getting stores (including large chain stores) to carry vegan products I want. Have you tried that? I always thought it would be a useless endeavor, but it's actually worked before!

I am OBSESSED with their beefless tips. My mom made them on my birthday because they're seriously my favorite thing ever.
I cannot wait to try the beefless burger!! Yay Gardein!!

This is relevant to my interests.

The only problem with their Beefless Tips is it is such a bipolar experience for me. You get all pumped to cook them, then you crash when realize it's done and there are not enough servings in a bag!

Nice. I try not to eat too much processed fake meat products, but gardein's stuff is really tasty. I'll definitely try these at some point.

According to their Facebook page so far the burgers are only available at Ralphs and select Whole Foods stores.

In my pre-vegan days, I didn't ever get spam. Now I get it all the time. It's wrong... So, so wrong.

Can't wait until it arrive at a store near me. I have tried tons of veggie burgers, most of them are very similar to each other. But Gardien is a different kind company and for some reason, their products taste better than other companies' products. I have high hopes for this new burger.

Bought them! Haven't tried them yet, because I feel they need a proper bun and I don't keep much bread in the house. But VERY VERY VERY soon, I will eat one.

I shall report back.

You lucky vegetable eating ducky! How big are the burgers? I was disapointed when I saw how small their tenders are.

Oh wow I was not expecting that. Gardein products always tends to be more expensive than MSF and Boca.

They are Delicious. My omni Husband now prefers them to any other veggie burger we've had (and we've tried most of the brands). When grilled, they have a pretty "meaty" flavor and texture, so they might not be for people who are turned off by meat substitutes that taste too much like actual meat. I really enjoyed them, and plan on buying them again.

That's a good price!

I like them too, they are quite disturbingly meaty, haha. I under grilled the first one I ate so I was kind of underwhelmed, but the second time I got it nice and crispy and it was marvelous!

I think I ultimately prefer spicy black bean burgers though, they are still my favourite
