Review: Gardein Meat-Free BBQ Pulled Pork Shreds

Let me start of this review by saying I was very excited to try this brand of fake meat! I had heard many good things about it and even Oprah jumped on the veggie bandwagon there for a second because this brand was allegedly delicious. Allegedly.

To put it quite simply, I was repulsed. I made a delicious (looking) pulled pork sandwich on a sesame bun with lettuce and onion. The first bite was a bit disappointing to put it mildly, but I decided to keep eating it anyway. Well, that lasted about 2 more bites before I couldn't stomach it anymore. It has no flavor whatsoever except for that "fakeness" flavor that is almost always present in fake meats. I usually ignore that flavor for the sake of the other flavors present, but unfortunately there IS no other flavor in this meat. I was hopeful that drowning it in salt would at least help because I'm a salt fiend but it only made the problem worse. Oh yeah, I almost forgot about the texture. It was slimy and soft. 'Nuff said.

Wow, Oprah. I will never trust your taste in food again.
