How do they taste? I want to do a barbecue for my sons birthday and was thinking of getting some.

I like them a lot. I do not know the comparison to meat dogs anymore. They are a bit rubbery.

I totally love them, but veggie dogs seem to be one of those "love it or hate it" kind of things so I think you'd have to try them yourself to know. My omni/transitioning boyfriend loves other faux products like veggie beef, Tofurky deli slices, bean burgers etc. but he won't touch my veggie dogs even though I gobble them up and think they're awesome <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
I think they are one of those products you appreciate more when you haven't eaten meat for a long time and aren't looking for something that tastes like meat, I haven't had real hot dogs in over a decade so that could have something to do with it.

Isn't that three words?</div>

Yep. Four if you count the word "drool".

I liked veggie hot dogs better than real ones even before I was vegetarian. Well not so much the basic "hot dogs", but I use the Tofurky Italian Sausage in a lot of cooking. Thinly sliced and cooked until slightly crispy on the outside, they are very good in a lot of Italian style pastas.

I've always been a fan of Smart Dogs, but lately I'm not caring for any of them.<br><br>
Tofurkey sausages (Italian, Kielbasa, Beer Brats) on the other hand... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

Smart Dogs (soy, I see in your signature that you don't eat that) and Field Roast are awesome <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"> I'm a Smoked Apple Sage fanatic myself.

I've tried Yves brand and Smart Dogs. They're definitely better on the grill than say, boiled. Add the proper condiments and good buns, and they're pretty convincing.

I end up covering my veggie dog in ketchup and relish, so I don't even taste anything "off" about it. So many people dislike the Smart Dogs, but they've grown on me.

There used to be a brand that was bright orange (I'm thinking like 18 years ago). Tasted awful, but fun to eat around other people. Just so very orange.

Don't eat them expecting them to taste like regular meat hot dogs, or even think of them as a "substitute." Think if them as another thing you can but on a bun and top with condiments like veg chili, mustard, and relish.<br><br>
If you don't like them in hot dogs, you have extras, or even if you think you hate them... They taste WWOONNDDEERRFFUULL fried up all crispy in a skillet and added to other things like spaghetti sauce or baked beans.

I think I've only tried smart dogs. I load mine up Chicago-style, and with all those toppings, it tastes vaguely hot dog-ish. The texture is way off, though. They're way too squishy.<br><br>
Maybe I'll try the tofurky ones sometime. Tofurky stuff usually leaves me feeling kinda gross, though.

Even though I don't care for the Smart Dogs, they are the only veggie hot dog available here, so I eat them when I want hot dogs. I never liked sausage/brats/etc, so I've never tried the veggie counterparts to those. I did ask at the customer service desk if theyd consider getting in the Tofurky dogs, but the person was really rude to me. (The response I got was, "just because you want them doesn't mean we're going to get them." OK, maybe that's true, but they could have been more tactful.)</div>

Very rude, I would have made a complaint.
