The best ones I've tried are the Morning Star Farms frozen ones. I tried them after eating a MSF corn dog. They are GOOD! I was surprised at how yummy they were. Of course I did grill them outside so that might have influenced the taste a bit. =P
I don't think the msf dogs are vegan. I don't know WHY they can't make their stuff without egg white. I know the veggie crumbles are vegan, but other than that, I think all their stuff is just vegetarian.
I know, I wanted to try the corn dogs and chik things, but they all have egg whites. Lightlife stuff is vegan, like their breaded chik patties, those are really good! Fry em up and slap it on a bun. Yum!!
My favorite dogs are the "GOOD DOGS"...I forget who makes them, it may have been lightlife, I'm not sure. It pissed me off because in AZ they had those, and I really liked them, and then they stopped carrying them! I just use a little bit of oil and fry them in a pad. They sort of "bubble up" around the outside, but that's ok, they're good!
Oh, and watch the expiration date on them...I've almost bought them a number of times, but they were ALL out of date! I have no idea why, I guess not many people buy them, but they should.
My young omni neices and nephew were visiting this weekend, and they seemed to enjoy the Yves Veggie Dogs. I took a little bit of Earth Balance marg. and cooked the Veggie Dogs in a frying pan. I tried a bite, but it tasted too "real" for my liking.
Edited to add: I tried the Lightlife Smart Dogs, and didn't care for them at all. They were disgusting, and had a weird chemical smell to them. The little ones took a bite and refused to eat any more. To each his/her own!
I really like tofu pups, they are not fat free like those "smart dogs" (which seem like they are made to be fat free more than tasty), they taste REAL AUTHENTIC, and they aren't overpowered with chemical smells or naural smoke flavor. They have a nice glow to them... Yum...
