Absolutely unbelievable!!! I tried this today in a bacon, lettuce and tomato wrap with mayonnaise . If I didn't know, I would have happily thought that I was eating bacon. It's delicious. I grilled mine in the air fryer. The crisper it is seems to give it that identical bacon taste. This will now be my regular go to from now on. Well done Vivera and Thank you 😊
Tried a few plant based bacons and I always seem to come back to this one. Just a few minutes to cook and it's ready to add a salty bacon-ish delight to just about anything you fancy and because it's in small pieces there's no having to chop it up either. An easy 5 stars from me!
Always have a bag in the freezer
We buy this regularly to put in wraps or with pasta (a favourite is to mix it in macaroni cheese). But as someone else pointed out, it is too salty and we reduce the amount of salt in the pasta or other foods to compensate.
This is the best vegan bacon-type food I've ever tried, and I've tried all those I could get! It fries nicely on a medium to high heat with a little oil. It goes wonderful with a veggie fry-up breakfast, in creamy pasta dishes (I use vegan mayo!), or on a BLT sandwich ('bacon', lettuce, tomatoe). I wish it was a little less expensive but it's still 5 stars for me.
Really horrible. None of us liked it, the flavour was this artificial overpowering smokey thing, the texture was cardboardy, and it really was just inedible. Threw most of it out, and we never threw things out!
the closest to real bacon I've tasted so far
I've searched and searched for a decent substitue for bacon and couldn't find one, but this product, if you fry until crispsy , does a good impression of crispy bacon - what a shame they don't sell it in rashers.
These go great in a fried breakfast or on a pizza,
These go great in a fried breakfast or on a pizza, they are close to the point that most folks wouldn't notice the difference if they weren't told. If they could get the manufacturing process to the point of producing a product looking like whole strips of bacon, they would have nailed it.
I might have received a bad batch, but this product was absolutely awful. No matter how I varied the cooking method, these pieces of shredded reconstituted soya remained like cardboard, tough and dry. They are also very, very salty which surely is not healthy. Worst of all, there was an overpowering and unpleasant chemical taste, as though the soya was processed with strongly chlorinated water. A big no, thank you - from all in my household.
Better than bacon
Great substitute for bacon! I love it with Quorn 'chicken' pieces, sweetcorn and Hellman's vegan mayo on a salad! Cooks really quickly as it just needs heating through.
Very good, but too much salt in them.
These are very tasty and great mixed in a bowl of salad. The only reason I can't give them five stars is they have way too much salt in them. The salt content needs to be dramitically reduced, to zero if possible. They make me very thirsty and that much salt is not healthy.
