I was looking for older ads (I know I've seen 'em!), but I'm not finding them now when I want to. Loma Linda foods was founded in 1906, so it stands to reason that adverts exist from the early years!

I think it's pretty cool they have been around so long - I checked out their ads from 50s, 60s and 70s, and I'm venturing to guess they were actually the first ever major supplier of veggie dogs and veggie burgers.
I have some of the canned hot dogs. They're great when broiled in the oven, I didn't try boiling them.

I made the chili tonight. I added black olives, avacado cilantro sauce and scallions, and it was yummy!
Thanks for the info! I live at a reasonable distance from an ABC book store that has a vegetarian food section, so I'll be able to enjoy more without having to order online.

|Thalassa4||Well I oven toasted a couple big franks, rather than boiling, and they had a very decent flavor just with mustard and ketchup. I was afraid they might taste odd due to being canned, but I'm happy with the weinies, at least.|

I've tried Choplets (patties in a can - they may be discontinued) and those little wienies in a can. I don't remember doing anything other than heating 'em up. This was a good 20+ years ago.
I never tried them then, but LL/Worthington products were sold in the grocery stores in the smallish central Minnesota community I lived in in the 80s. Hutchinson had a sizable (but still minority) SDA population. They mainly kept to themselves in one corner of town.

I am Adventist & Vegan. It is good! I haven't had those particular ones but over all they are pretty good! Let me know what you think about it. Also - not all Worthington brands come in cans. I grew up on Fripats and there is nothing like it.. Maybe Morningstar Original Grillers is similar. You make it just like you would a non-vegan product.

The Loma Linda vegetarian products brand has been around for over 100 years: http://lomalindabrand.com/history-heritage/
The brand was started by Seventh Day Adventist Christians - a community that has traditionally encouraged vegetarianism. Loma Linda is the name of a city in California that has a large Seventh Day Adventist community: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loma_L..._and_longevity . Loma Linda is only about 60 miles from Los Angeles - worth a visit.
I'm curious to hear about your experience with these foods. The funny thing about their foods is that they all come in cans (even the hot dogs):

Loma Linda foods
I won a contest on Twitter and received a package of free vegan chili and their "big franks" vegan hot dogs. I haven't tried them yet.
Has anyone tried Loma Linda foods, and how did you prepare them?
