Search for the WORST vegan product: make your voice heard! »
We’ve taken great strides forward in recent years. Daiya vegan cheese and Gardein meat products have surpassed, by a long shot, much that came before them. But with all of these recent advances in vegan food science, it’s easy to forget the poor substitutions that came before, and how bad we used to have it. That would be fine and dandy if those products would just disappear. Unfortunately, many of them persist on grocery shelves, stubbornly refusing to update their recipes to stay competitive.
What’s your vote for the single worst vegan product currently on the market? What’s the one that needs a huge “steer clear” label pasted on it for those who have just become vegan? What’s the one that makes you groan when your mom “helpfully” purchases it for you? Seriously, this is a public service. By clearing the shelves of all the crap products, we’re making sure that folks spend their hard-earned money on vegan food that actually tastes great. More great-tasting vegan food = an easier transition to veganism = hopefully more vegans. Right? I mean, that and we’re gonna have to stop being such assholes to non-vegans. I’m sure the reason they’re not vegan yet is because of some goofy tongue-in-cheek snark on a vegan blog. That makes the most sense.
We’ll tally the results and do a follow-up post next week.
My vote: Tofutti Soy-Cheese Slices. What’s yours?
