I told my mom to pick up about ten different things from schucks tommorow from the morning star section to start testing out what i like and what i don't. I honestly don't think im going to dislike something though. I'll look into your list the next round <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

I don't know where you live, but if you're in Florida, and you shop at Publix, I would definitely avoid the Publix "Green Wise" brand Vegan hamburgers. I just tried them last week, and they taste awful. Morningstar's "grillers original" are a much better soy-based hamburger, although it has egg white, so it's not vegan.<br><br><br><br>
For those who don't know, Publix is Florida's biggest supermarket chain, and "Green Wise" is their supposedly eco-friendly house brand. Since becoming vegetarian, I've actually been pretty impressed with Publix. Their own brand foods tend to be inferior, but most are at least edible, which is more than I can say for those vegan burgers.<br><br><br><br>
But they have a pretty good selection of other brands of veg*n stuff, like Morningstar, Silk, Boca, Yves, various tofu types, etc. All in all, I've been pleasantly surprised. They even had one of their demo display tables a couple of weekends ago trying to get people to try soy milk, which shocked the heck out of me. And their house brand vanilla soy milk is actually pretty good. Their plain isn't as good as Silk, though, and Silk is cheaper, surprisingly.<br><br><br><br>
As for other veg*n products, I like Morningstar's veggie patties and Boca's fake chicken patties. I haven't tried many others yet. Again, the Morningstar stuff has egg white, so it isn't vegan. As a new vegetarian, it's close enough for me, for now anyway.<br><br><br><br>

My favorites these days are Gardenburger Sundried Tomato Basil burgers (soy free, made up of grains veggies and a little cheese, so not vegan), and Gardenburger Chik'n Grill, or whatever they're called. I also like Morningstar Farms hotdogs and bacon, but only occasionally. Most of tose priducts have a ton of salt. I used to really like thos Spinach Nuggets, but I can't remember who makes them. They are refrigerated, not frozen. I can't eat them anymore, because they made me really sick when I was pregnant, but I used to like them. Oh yeah, the other day I tried Soyrizo (soy chorizo.) My husband is an omni and he's Mexican. He always said he wished they made a veggie chorizo so I could try it. Well, I found this the other day, and we both ate it, and he liked it. This was also in the refrigerated section, by the tofu, at my grocery store.

Is there a reason why you're limiting yourself to MF products? You should try the Gardenburger riblets. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"><br><br><br><br>
My favorite MF products are the buffalo wings (dipped in honey mustard) and mini corn dogs.

ditto on the riblets - I'm close to a passable recipe so I can make fake fake meat.<br><br><br><br>
Are those corn-dogs vegan?

I like the breakfast sausage patties. They're good on a biscuit or english muffin and make a really quick and easy breakfast. I also like the bacon strips a lot. I haven't eaten them plain, but we went through a lot of them in the summer when we had BLT sandwiches more.

There really are a lot of options. Sometimes you need to look around. There's the frozen foods section and the health food section. And usually the tofu and sandwich items (sandwich slices, soy cheese, and vegan mayo) are in the produce section. Also, different stores can carry different brands or different products.

If you're vegetarian, you might enjoy the "Quorn" products if you can find them where you live.<br><br>
(Sorry if some said this already!!)
