Pretty close to the real deal
I was quite impressed by this - like most vegan meat substitutes it doesn't taste great on it's own but in a sandwich it's pretty close to the real deal. I find that the flavour and texture of vegan meat subs are important and this ticks all the right boxes. It doesn't taste like regular ham of course but it's flavoursome enough that it's not bland or dry. Would recommend!
Good for sandwiches
I'm not going to pretend it tastes exactly like ham, but it tastes fine in a sandwich and the texture is good, so it's worth a try if you're trying to reduce/exclude meat. I'd definitely use this over their "chicken" slices.
Great vegan deli "meat."
If you are like me and miss deli meats then you will be very pleased with this option. They are even great if you just want to avoid nitrates and aren't vegetarian/vegan. I hope seitan/wheat gluten is used more in products so we get more tasty items like this to enjoy!
I dont like a lot of meat subs, but this ham was just such a nice change, really enjoyable and a stronger flavour than most of the other fake meats out there!
Looked a bit different to the usual pastrami but made a very good sandwich with sliced gherkins and mustard
It tastes like ham and it has the same texture as ham. Just doesn't look like ham, but who cares if everything else is already there?
Ham sandwich and just as a snack on its own - I love it!
Finally, good vegan slices.
Good, high quality vegan slices! They taste very nice, not artificial at all (like Quorn slices do). I can't compare them to Italian ham, but it's what I'd imagine it would taste like. Lots of protein, even for a serving, which usually is small. They are thin (be careful with parting them so they don't rip), but the taste is still strong. I used them in sourdough sandwiches with spinach and tomato. Can't wait to try other Squeaky Bean slices; will make sure to review them too.
