OH MY GOODNESS!



I am in ravioli heaven! They have VEGAN Ravioli! And it's to die for!



Just got this stuff at my co-op and it is truely the best stuff ever. I have to get some more NOW! Like tonight. Like this minute, leave work and drive 45 minutes!!

Not sure how widely they're distributed... I just had their Artichoke and Kalamata Olive VEGAN Ravioli - it tastes like it has a TON of cheese in it... creamy and tangy and ... (*faints*).



Look for it in the freezer section. It's insanely good!

I've seen it at my local co-op but never tried it. I just may have to now. And I think I noticed it on sale this month too so I'll give it a try.

Oh cool! Went to their website, typed in my ZIP code, and learned their stuff is available at both the Wild Oats and Whole Foods near me!

I've seen their products at the store, and they look really good, but they are terribly expensive, so I haven't tried them.

I really like the butternut squash. Although I'm not too fond of the spinach

Oo my co-op didn't have the kalamata one when they were on sale a few months back. Thats the sort of thing I only buy on sale cause damn they're expensive for not a ton of ravioli! The ones I had were good though.

They can be expensive - maybe that's why I hadn't tried them before. They were on sale - and it appears the website has printable coupons too... and it's still cheaper than going out to eat...

Mmm, I love the butternut squash flavor too. I only buy them when they go on sale. I'll have to try the kalamata olive flavor next time if my store carries it.

TNS, thanks for recommending this. I picked up a couple of packets of this from Whole Foods on my way home today (it was on sale here, too). I had the vegan spinach florentine ravioli tonight -- tossed it in olive oil and it was DELICIOUS.



What kind of sauce did you use, BTW?

Ooo, neato! Looks like they're a regular at Whole Foods nationwide, because they show up down here in Houston, too (at least according to the website). Must look for them. Darn it, I just made my weekly trip to Whole Foods, too!

I emailed them to ask for coupons. It seems what you do is send them your address and they mail you coupons. I also told them people here were gushing about them!

Good, maybe the folks at Rising Moon will visit this website.



Just in case --



Attn Rising Moon:



The vegan cheese in your ravioli is really tasty.



PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING VEGAN PIZZA AS WELL.



Thank you.

They are on sale at my WF (maybe they are in Houston too, Tess). I have the artichoke/olive ones in my freezer right now. Can't wait to try them!

Caution vegans: I just looked again at their different raviolis and the ingredients for each: Be careful which one you buy; not every ravioli type is vegan. Check the ingredients on the package.

Yeah, this is true and maybe I should have specified this in my original post... not all varities are vegan.



However - they have a LOT of flavors that ARE vegan and they clearly have a "VEGAN" identification right on the front of the label.



Again, they are so... yum....

Hi Friends,

Thank you for your comments about Rising Moon Organics! It's wonderful to read your feedback. I would love to send coupons to anyone who would like them. Please email me at jack@risingmoon.com if you're interested. Put "coupons" in the subject line and include your mailing address along with your message.



We are 100% organic and offer a strong line of vegan items: Ravioli, Pasta Sauce, and Salsa. In April we'll be introducing a vegan Pesto.



Our ravioli may be more expensive than those made with conventionally grown ingredients, but you get what you pay for. We build relationships with the farmers who grow our ingredients. We buy from local family farms where possible. Your support of Rising Moon Organics in turn supports many, many families who are making good choices for our planet and our health.



Thank you again,



Jack Stephens

I have e-mailed my local HFS about getting them here. They are going to look into it, and were very interested since they've tried for months and months to get soy boy here, but soy boy won't do business in Canada.



How expensive are they exactly? I know sometimes you guys have a different sense of what's expensive than what I do, since we seem to pay a lot more on average for things in Canada.

I LOVE Rising Moon's ravioli! Our favorites are the spinach florentine and the butternut squash. I don't like to hide them under a bunch of sauce, I just top them with garlic , olive oil, and some vegan parmesan.

I'm eagerly awaiting my coupons! (Not that I've verified my Whole Foods really carries them yet...)

Personally, I don't think they are that great. I like 'em okay and they are easy to fix. Where I live they cost about $3.79 per package, but sometimes go on sale 2/$5. Right now Wild Oats has them on sale. One package serves two people, if you have bread and salad, too.



I like them with a marinara sauce on them.

$3.79 per package is a hell of a lot cheaper than eating out.

Well, why didn't I see THIS thread http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...ad.php?t=36565 before I got all hysterically excited, thinking I'd discovered the newest, best thing in the health food store...

They are typically over $5 at my local HFS... But frozen food is notoriously overpriced out here in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It costs a LOT to ship...

Thanks delicious.



Well, my other option is NO ravioli, so I'll take what I can get!



That's about the same price Soy Boy was in NY when I was there, so not too bad.
