I just had them for the first time...someone here recomended them (I think it was MsRuthieB) and they are DELICIOUS.

The taste 95% like the real thing to me...

If you haven't tried them and you liked spareribs, I highly recomend them.

The box says two servings...hmm. Nope. Buy a whole box just for yourself unless you eat like a bird or something...

They are good aren't they! I usually make them with mashed potatoes and peas. Omnis in the family love them too!

I guess gardenburger has a similar thing out...BBQ chicken...I haven't seen them yet myself...but I hear they are good.

Aren't they yummy? They taste SO friggin' real! It's almost scary!
I just bought the Gardenburger 'meatloaf' today, but my mom will probably end up eating it, since she LOVES meatloaf. She no longer brings meat in the house! My mommy is the bomb.

Ah yes, the Riblets. I could ,and have, eat these everyday. I normally eat these with a sliced tomato and a couple whole green onions. If i wasnt so damned stuffed already, i'd break out a riblet or two. MMM RiBlEtS.....

Riblets rock my world! Get a nice soft hoagie roll, spread some Veganaise on the bottom, put your riblet on there, layer some lettuce and tomato slices on top, then squirt some dijon mustard on there and top it off with the roll. You can't tell it's vegan at ALL!

I just bought some to bbq for the 4th of July. I've never had ribs, though, so I'm really unsure as to what they'll taste like. It ought to be interesting, at least! I've gotten tired of always bringing smart dogs and veggieburgers to bbqs.

Riblets are terrific!! Definitely my favorite meat analogue so far. If anything they're too rich, even though they're delicious. I'd like to try the BBQ "chicken;" I'll keep an eye out for it.

Darn, now I want some riblets and I already ate the last of them a couple of days ago! Maybe I'll buy some for the BBQ I'm going to tonight.

BTW, correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think the packaging actually says "vegan," even though the ingredients seem fine. Why would that be?

Today I bought some more Riblets, and I also decided to try some Gardenburger brand grilled chicken patties. I noticed that the chicken patties actually say "vegan" on the box. So why don't the Riblets?? Could it really be that the Riblets are made on equipment that also touches dairy/eggs, while the chicken patties are not? Or, am I missing an ingredient that makes the Riblets non-vegan?

I wish the "may have touched equipment that once touched dairy and/or eggs" thing wasn't such a big deal ... or they could just say "99.99% vegan," or something to indicate that there's no deliberately non-vegan ingredient.

not the gardenburger riblets??!?! Man, am i outnumbered- i bought them because of all of the good things I've heard about them- but I hated them. As a matter of fact I kinda just scraped the sauce off of them...go figure

I was a little wigged out by them at first because they were too meatlike for my taste. I checked the ingrediants on the box about 10 times to make sure Paul Wenner didn't pull one over on me!
After I got over the "realistic" texture, I enjoyed them.
