Yummy but too expensive
We are a vegetarian household, and we absolutely love these. They are very salty but taste delicious. However, the reviews are right - the pieces are stuck together something fierce! I discovered that they become much easier to separate if the whole thing has been out of the fridge for 2 hours or so. My main criticism is that they are very very expensive, luckily they are often on offer so I can stock up.
Not for me thank you.
It was hard enough to separate the slices but once I did it wasn't worth the effort. From rubbery to cardboard within minutes. Will stick to Vivera or This Isn't Bacon from now on
Rubbery with a hint of sawdust
I received this as a substitute for the Quorn Bacon and boy are they worlds apart! Unlike the Quorn one, this product cannot be eaten cold as it tastes horrendous. Even fried it still remains rubbery with a hint of sawdust. The taste and texture are truly disgusting. Awful product.
Bacon for veganuary
So much better than that funny looking THIS! bacon. Tastes close to the real thing - definitely a win for veganuary.
Awful. All the pieces were stuck together. |tried to separate them very carefully and they broke into pieces. Cooked the bits following instructions and they were rubbery and tasteless. Threw the lot away.
After reading reviews, I expected these to be stuck together. They weren't. And they turned out to be the best plant based rashers that I have tried. Yum
Fix the Recipe
When I started to try and go vegan, I did it using naked bacon (plant-based) and I was surprised how good it tasted. Recently, I think they have made changes to the recipe, it basically has no taste and no smell of bacon. I have now switched to another brand of plant-based bacon. Before, I would have given 5 stars.
I can't recommend this.
The taste is fine but it takes so long to separate the rashers and when you do manage this they all break up. So I can't recommend this.
I've tried so many vegetarian variations of bacon
I've tried so many vegetarian variations of bacon over the years . If you're missing the texture / look or what a piece of processed pig brings to a meal , I encourage trying this . The texture is close if cooked correctly . If you're missing something I suggest it's possible the salt , I fried mine in a little butter . I won't buy another brand now I've discovered this .
Rashers stick together
tastes good. however all the rashers stick together and it takes ages to separate them before frying. too much hard work and have stopped buying
