    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!!

    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.

    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!
