I’ve yet to find an item that Tofutti makes that I don’t like and was really excited to find these not too long ago.
While a lot of parts of the country are already cooling down and autumn has made itself very apparent, not so here in New Mexico. On a day like today where it’s still in the 90s, it’s great to have a cool ice cream treat like this one.
The chocolate on this cone has a great taste and the ice cream is just perfect. I think my only complaint is that the cone wasn’t as crunchy as I would like (and in some cases, outright soft and chewy instead) but overall, if you are looking for a something reminiscent of a “nutty buddy” this is close enough to do the trick.
What’s your favorite frozen treat?
I heard the rumors about a frozen pizza that pairs yummy Tofurky pepperoni with the even more yummy Daiya cheese. These rumors became fact as I was searching for something else entirely in the freezer cases on our weekly grocery shopping outing. I gasped, smiled, and I think maybe even clapped when I saw box on the shelf that promised to give me what I’d been missing for so long: the cheap (but tasty) frozen pizza experience.
While I was taking pictures of the box at home, Mawell decided the picture would be much better with him in it (of course).
"Hand me a slice, ma, and make mine with extra tuna."
So let me first say that this pizza did deliver on what I was hoping it would: it is indeed a cheap (but yummy) tasting frozen pizza. It will by no means take the place of the homemade pies we can make on our own. This is a nice, fast, lazy solution to a pizza craving, late night snacking, and after the bar sort of food. Having said that, it’s pretty good for what it is. The cheese does indeed melt (thank you, Daiya!) and the Tofurky is a nice pepperoni taste. My complaints, though, would be that there wasn’t enough cheese and that there was too much pepperoni (and it seemed to dry out a bit in cooking). Make no mistake, though, I’ll definitely keep on of these on hand to nosh when I just don’t feel like getting out the pizza stone.
It's not delivery, it's Tofurky.
Oh, and while I say cheap, let me make a note that at $8.99, this doesn’t equal cheap at checkout. They have 2 other varieties including a cheese only and also an italian sausage and fire roasted veggie version. I think in the future I’ll just buy cheese so I can throw on my own toppings. Overall, would I do this again? Oh yes.
My love for this tasty dish was born when I was living in Kanab, Utah. About once a month or so I’d make a “trip to the city” of St. George to do some shopping for items I couldn’t get in my little town. I looked forward to the gorgeous drive and to the sushi/thai goodness that awaited me at Benja.
I’d start my visit off with a Thai Iced Tea and nice bowl of edamame:
So so so good!
Next I would gorge myself with an order of avocado sushi, cucumber sushi, and then some more avocado sushi! Oh and don’t forget the miso soup!
The best way, though, was to always end the meal with their delicious mango with sticky rice. Since moving from Utah, I hadn’t had this so was over the moon to find it in the frozen section of Trader Joe’s. (They aren’t paying me to love them up, I swear, I just love them!).
So earlier this week, Kit Kat and I popped open the happy little package and prepared to nom.
Oh the excitement!
And nom we did! Here is a close up (a little late, I was excited to try!).
One of my favorites!
Once again, TJ’s didn’t let us down. The mango was sweet, the rice was sticky, and this dish was delish!
I am in complete love with a frozen dinner. You read right, I did indeed say a frozen dinner. I never thought I’d utter the words “love” and “frozen dinner” in the same sentence but never say never, my friends, because I am indeed head over heels in love with Amy’s Rice Macaroni and Cheeze. This stuff is simply amazing!
Take a good look at the picture on the box because that is truly what this yummy dish looks like after it has been prepared. Warm, creamy, and downright cheesy! It’s made with Daiya cheddar cheese (that yummy stuff is a post for another time, but soon!) and could easily fool anyone into believing that it’s actually dairy by its look and taste. I actually got some raised eyebrows at work while I was warming this up today. The looks that said “Hey, isn’t that girl a Vegan?!” Someone even marched over, picked up and box and started reading ingredients. 😉
So if you ever take any recommendation from me, please take this one: Go out and get some of this NOW! It’s super noms and you will not regret it. Oh, and extra special love to my pal, Keri, over at I Eat Trees for introducing me to this tasty little number. Keri, you are in the running as my new BFF for this. 😉
