God Bless Tofutti

As some of you may know, I live in the complete middle of nowhere (a 5,000 pop town in Vermont.)

So since I had to get my braces tightened yesterday (ugh!) we ended up going food shopping in Berlin where they have the Shaw's with organic/natural section. AND OMG THEY HAD TOFUTTI!!!

Its been sooooooo long since I've had Tofutti stuff. People are always talking about it on forums and I'm wicked jealous because our co-op sucks and our Shaw's is tiny and overpriced. So yeah. And I got 2 boxes of Cuties (I ate 7 last night!!!) and the vegan-cheese pan pizza (tastes like Elios!) and Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese.

For those of you have missed out, Tofutti is a brand of dairy-product substitues, and they are all vegan (though they don't say it, they never use casein)
Tofutti Cuties are small "ice-cream"-sandwich bars, and that I know of they come in Chocolate, Vanilla, and Wild Berry flavors. THEY KICK ASS. My mother even likes them and she usually doesnt like "fake" stuff. Even before I was a vegan I got them once (as a mistake!) and I thought they were BETTER than regular ice cream bars. (Tofutti also makes assorted flavors of tub "ice cream")

I got the Herbs "cream cheese". It *sort of* tastes real. The texture is right, though its a bit melty on a hot bagel. Its got a little aftertaste, but it is still yummylicious (definition t-a-s-t-e-y tastay!)

The Pizza is really good, but a suggestion is to heat it HOT all the way through or else the "cheese" is yucky. If its hot it's yummy. Tofutti doesnt use casein (a milkbased protein) in they're products. This is good for vegans, but cheese doesnt melt without it. The Tofutti pizza is actually just thinly sliced vegan "cheese" that appears melted because heat *warps* it. (I will have a little thing on casein, next post)

I'll give 25 BE credits to anyone who comes up with a good "God Bless Tofutti" parody of "God Bless America"...

Tofutti Cuties are pretty much the best thing ever.
