I've never tried this invention but am thinking of getting some for Christmas. Has anyone tried it? How does it taste?

Thanks for the link Posia. I'm not sure about tofurky trying now! :p lol. I have another food I like a whole lot anyways-Veats gourmet fake chicken breast and gourmet nuggets. I'll try that food link that was in the tofurky thread, too.

I kind of wish I could try a little piece of it without buying the whole loaf. I hate to waste the money if I don't like it, on a budget. Maybe someday...

The gravy is the best! I'm not too crazy about the tempeh drumpsticks but they aren't bad with gravy dumped all over them (which if you don't like the gravy may be a problem). I love it, I say give it a shot! I got the roast alone for just over $8 so it's not bad.

This is a very tough decision for me...just kidding...I see that some of you liked it, including Michael, but did anyone love it? If you think it was great I might try it.

I absolutely love it. Especially after this last time I had it, for some reason it was much much better than usual. Apparently I'm in the minority though. All depends on how you cook it I guess. Last time I followed the suggestion on the box and wrapped it up with potatoes, onions, and carrots. You also make a soy sauce baste to pour over the top of it. And I cooked it at a little higher temperature and a little longer than what it says on the box.

I think I'm going to have to "review" Tofurky for myself and then give my opinion. I think they sell it pretty close to me for around the same price most paid, I'll see. If you don't hear from me again, the tofurky killed me! LOL.

It's bland unless you baste that sucker like there's no tomorrow. I use an orange juice/soy sauce concoction. It's not bad, really.

Yeah, we use OJ, soy, and brown sugar. And I think it really helps if you follow the suggestion on the side of the box and cut up some onions, carrots, and potatoes to wrap up in it. I think that may be what made it more moist (and less chewy). It's definitely one of those things that can be very good or very bad depending how you make it. The people who don't like it must have done it wrong. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I often use lots of spices, juices, veggies, soy sauce, and fruits with soy products and everything else so I'll try spicing it up and follow the directions. Now to get to the store to buy it...

I've tried Tofurky. It was okay. They do sell the Tufurky slices by themselves. I made it myself a few years ago for Christmas dinner and enjoyed mine better! This year for Thanksgiving dinner I bought myself a Field Roast, which comes in different flavors, even one with stuffing in it). It's pretty good with gravy and cranberry sauce.

There must be a message in Michael being unable to cook ANYTHING, but creating a standard when it comes to Tofurky. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

When I first discovered Tofurky, I thought it was god's gift to vegetarians. After a while though, I started to notice it's plasticy texture more, and now I can't stand the stuff.<br><br><br><br>
All I can do now is hope Kraft pours some R&D dollars into Boca so they can come up with something better.

I still haven't bought the tofurky but I will. I bought veggie Chinese food for Christmas Eve and am still eating it. I don't feel like cooking something that takes a lot of effort yet with the aches and pains I'm having. Plus I have to have a few extra dollars before I get it and test it out. This should be interesting though.

It's worth trying at least once. I don't think it is so bad. And don't forget, Michael really likes it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
