Here's a Pinterest with some older (mid 50s-early 60s?) Loma Linda ads: https://www.pinterest.com/pirija0058...-food-company/

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'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):



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.

Thalassa4 I made the chili tonight. I added black olives, avacado cilantro sauce and scallions, and it was yummy!
@Tiffany Scott

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.

silva I've seen those weinies on amazon- they got good reviews (and that was before they gave product away for reviews!)

scottti I am from NYC. You could buy it at an ABC (Adventist Book Center) store. I don't ever remember seeing it in a grocery store.

Dave in MPLS 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.

It's good

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.

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?
