Can you compare it to anything? The only fake poultry I have had is Quorn naked cutlets (wont buy again) and morningstar farms nuggets (it even fooled the kids).

Well, since UnTurkeys cost $40, I just skip them and buy a tofurkey instead.

Check out my webcomic! www.GrammarComic.com

i've had unturkey, unsteak, unribs, and unchicken. i like all of them.



the unturkey comes in two sizes (the large must be the one you spent $40 on, the smaller go for around $25 and they both come with gravy, etc).



the other unmeats are in smaller/individual portion sizes and are priced accordingly. very tasty!

I love Unchicken! I find the Unsteak's flavor to be a little weird. As far as the Unturkey, I prefer Tofurkey in taste, although the Unturkey isn't bad.

I saw these at the store yesterday...

They look like the reall thing...

So I don't know why a veg would want to eat them, unless

they reall want the meat.

Depends who you are. For some its texture and for some it's what they have been used to before turning Vegetarian and miss it in a way. I like eating faux meats but I certainly dont want the "real" thing.

My mom got me a unsteak-like mealstarter from morning star and made me fajitas.



it was...yummy. And they seem to be vegan too, but correct me if I'm wrong.

i have eaten many unsteaks. although i havent been able to find them at any of the local whole foods for a couple months and i miss them. i tries to find the now and zen website but it was expired. so i was really hoping somebody knows where i can find some unsteaks and if i can buy them online in bulk on any websites???!!

I eat faux meats here, I dont want the real thing.

i think a lot of them are tasty and fill the need here because i have an omni hubby who eats veg at home. these help make everyone happy.
