    Love your food! We have turned many onto you “meats”. I was even amazed when meat eaters ate the Holiday Roast along with their turkey on Thanksgiving! Wait until Christmas! Thank-you Gardein!

    LOVE the holiday roast. Please provide this year long! The package with the smaller portion sizes aren’t the same as the loaf. I am making Bolognese sauce this weekend with the ground beef substitute and looking forward to it.

    This meatless product is amazing! Mouth-feel, identical with the chewiness of hamburger. The weird back-taste, or odor. Looks super appetizing and easily rakes on any flavour you want to give it. Not crazy about beef cubes. The chicken in mandarine sauce, excellent. These are keepers. BUT want to be ablye to buy at COSTCO!
