    I am a vegetarian and don’t like chicken. I was so disappointed with your product of Crispy Tenders.
    They look like chicken and taste like chicken. Why I have to taste something of chicken flavor when I chose a vegetarian food??

    This is really good. I followed the recipe the first time I made it. Since then I have tried a variety of different veggie combinations. It is always a hit at my house!!

      Thank you Ruth for your support! Keep enjoying the taste bud joyride!

    Yeah, I kinda love all of your faux chicken. The scallopini doesn’t taste like chicken, it tastes BETTER than chicken. Wish I could find it in bulk, cause I’d buy all of it.

      Ahh, thanks so much Sarah! We really appreciate your support.

    I love all of Gardein’s meatless products that I have tried so far! My fiancé and I stopped eating meat a little over 3 weeks ago. Your meat substitutes are definitely helping us get through the transition! I can definitely continue this no meat thing thanks to Gardein!

    My boyfriend and I use your products all the time and love them! We especially love the turkey breast and disappointed that we can only get it for Thanksgiving. We would love to get all year ’round.

    Thank you, Gardein.

    I enjoy all of your products. I am hoping that more restaurants get on the ball and offer meatless choices. It would make choosing a restaurant much easier.

    Bravo on all your products. I am a huge fan of everything that you offer and I look forward to trying some of your recipes. These meat subs make eating healthy so much easier and generate motivation to cook fresh meals instead of phoning it in with take-out. Thank you for all the yumminess!
