For those of you who follow my blog, you know how much I love Trader Joe’s! And although I love promoting vegan fare, I’m sorry to report that TJ’s Chicken~Less Chicken didn’t do it for me. It looks pretty good, as you can see by my photo. It’s easy to make and reasonably priced too, but alas, I just couldn’t get into it.
It may have been the texture, as it was my first experience with a faux pulled “meat”. Or it could have been simply that I’m used to such flavorful foods, that this one just left me disappointed. The BBQ sauce was good, but the faux “meat” was just kind of sitting there, tasteless & doing nothing. Again, it could just be me, so if you have something positive to say about this product, please do.
It makes me sad to write a bad review on anything vegan. However, I do know that sometimes people try one vegan dish and if it’s not tasty, they never return.
So my advice to any new vegans is: steer clear of this chicken~less chicken and have a vegan cupcake instead!
