Has anyone tried this? Thoughts?<br><br><br><br>
I had a nibble of it at the Wild Oats Deli where they had prepared it BBQ-style, and I had to do a double-take at the ingredients to ensure it was really meat-free. I'm interested in the deli slices, hopefully they'll taste less plasticy than the Tofurky hickory smoked that I've had in the past.

I've had it a couple of times at Whole Foods when I was somewhere where they have a Whole Foods. I don't usually like fake meats, but I loved this. I've never seen it anywhere else though...

I haven't seen this yet. It looks good, like something you could have for Thanksgiving. I'll try to find it and have a taste.

Haven't seen it either. Sure looks good. Probably not as good as Tofurky though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I finally managed to find the slices at Wild Oats, and got the Smoked Tomato flavor. They're labelled as vegan, and taste great! I think I prefer it to Tofurky, it seems to have less of a plasticy taste. And at 90 calories & 15 grams of protein a serving, it seems like a winner for me.

I have not seen it yet, I would be initerested. Would I find this perhaps at a co-op or something, cause it is not at my local grocer.

I hated Tofurkey with a passion.<br><br><br><br>
Found the Field Roast at Wild Oats shortly before Christmas this past year, and loved it. I'll get it for the holidays from now on. MUCH better than Tofurkey!

I had it at the Whole Foods in Boston, but we don't carry it at the one I work at in New Orleans for some reason. It was really good, and hearty. It wasn't something that tried to mimic meat, it's just good on it's own.<br><br><br><br>
Tofurky is ok. The stuffing is great and the gravy is really great too. The tofurky itself is kind of rubbery though.

I tried the FR slices in lentil-sage and mushroom (before allergies). I loved the lentil and used to buy it until it became hard to find around here.
