so i'm changing my "product review fridays" to a floating day, once per week. i'm doing this because i'm technologically inept and don't always have food porn to post. tonight is that night.
gardenburger used to make something like this, and like all things i love dearly it **poof!**disappeared. i wasn't vegan then, but i didn't eat pork either and found it to be a nice kosher alternative to ribs. well, i was delighted to see that morningstar farms was carrying them, but the price for two riblets $4.59 was a little too much for this penny pincher. they were on sale last week, so i snagged a box.
they are vegan and they taste exactly like the gardenburger ones. deeeeeeelicious! the sauce is sweet and smoky, absolutely perfect. they're fine for nuking if you're in a hurry and need to use the microwave, just cook one side for a minute, then flip, then another minute, then flip again. i had mine on a grilled bun with pickles and onions just like a certain unmentionable evil fast food chain limited time only sammich. it rocked. so good job, morningstar farms! you're my first product review to get a full two turntables and a microphone. even at full-price, i'd buy these again.
tip: eat yours with a nice big baked potato and some cole slaw. yum!
