I had posted a week ago (on the Healthified Living FB page) about getting the Elianni Veggie Rolls from fakemeats.com. I purchased one roll in each flavor, and I’ll do a separate review/post for each flavor.
I’m also going to be doing a giveaway that will be sponsored by fakemeats.com. The folks over there are so nice, and have decided to give 2 Veggie Rolls each to 2 winners. I’ll be starting the giveaway once I’ve reviewed all 4 of these flavors.
Fakemeats.com is a fairly new company and was started by Steven & Kim, a husband and wife, who are vegetarian & vegan. They wanted to have a nice collection of “fake meat” products for their customers to choose from, and are steadily growing their business and product line. You can read their whole story right here.
When I was looking on the fakemeats.com web site, I was pleasantly surprised to find these tasty looking Veggie Rolls. I am steadily phasing meat out of my diet, and am always on the lookout for soy free products.
These Veggie Rolls have a peanut base, but do not taste like peanuts. They also contain delicious herbs and spices, and are both Vegan, and USDA Organic certified. This is extremely filling and excellent on crackers, as well as by itself. They come in 4 different flavors – Mediterranean, Mushroom, Tomato, and Fine Herbs.
This Mushroom version was very mild flavored, and has little tiny bits of mushrooms in it. I’m not sure that I would order this flavor again, since it doesn’t really stand out for me flavor wise, compared to the Mediterranean & Fine Herbs flavors. Though I did really enjoy it with some smoked gouda and broccoli slaw on a whole grain bun (I will post that recipe in just a few minutes.) I give it a 3 out of 5 stars, my oldest daughter gives it 2 stars, and my son gives it 1 star (though in all fairness to Elianni, neither of my children like mushrooms). My husband & toddler have not yet had a chance to try this, so I can’t give their reviews yet.
I’m looking forward to trying the tomato flavor soon, and will review it just as soon as I do.
Stay tuned and keep reading for all 4 Veggie Roll flavor reviews, as well as the beginning of the contest giveaway!
Have a super day everyone!
