    Ok. Again, I am fine with these began options. What I do have a huge problem with is the labelling. Even if this was available here I would never buy this for that reason alone.

    The above is not tuna. This is tuna.


    Out of curiosity, how would you find it acceptable for a brand to communicate that this is a food designed to replicate the taste and texture of tuna?

    I'm not sure who the question was referring to, but if it was to me I can explain easy. First, curious as to what the alternatives actually taste like and I wanted a quick snack that was under 100 calories and easy. Second, it is easy. I have been a plant based pescatarianfor years. Due to ethical, enviornmental and some health reasons pertaining to metals, mercury autoimmune) Ihave been vegan. As a vegan,I do not eat any fake- meat- egg replacementssimply because I just don't want it. Seafood I do like. So it was interesting to see.
    As a huge past consumer of fish, it did have a similar satiated to the tuna packets I used to get- quite frankly it was denser and more filling. It was befinately nothing but I cansee the connection. Anyway I enjoyed it.

    Someone said he would never buy it because he dislikes the name, that it shouldn't be called "tuna." I don't understand how he would prefer have a brand communicate that this is a product designed to remind people of tuna.

    No idea, not my job.

    Milkless milk.
    Meatless meat.
    FIshless fish.

    Makes sense to me.

    So I wrote NUsh about the cookies I wanted to try and they sent me free samples!

    They are a pretty good size. Bigger than the 2oz lenny and larry cookies but thinner and lighter. They have a muffin/cake like texture (not like a cookie).

    I loved them, but wouldn't pay the 3 bucks per cookie they retail for lol. I tried each flavor both cold from the fridge and warmed them up in the microwave.

    Coconut Almond: My favorite one. I loved the almond chunks and sweet coconut flavor. I liked it cold better than warm.

    Snickerdoodle: It was like a nice cinnamon spice cake. Warmed up was WAY better than cold.

    Double chocolate: I didn't like the chocolate much at all. It had a bitter flavor to it. Did not taste very chocolatey. It reminded me of the chocolate cloud cakes and thinslim foods chocolate brownies. It has that "fake chocolate" taste.

    Caramel: Very light caramel flavor. It has a STRONG buttery flavor to it which I loved. Tasted like a buttered caramel pancake.

    If you can't imagine any type of marketing for the product that rouse your ire, I'm thinking that says more about you than the marketing of the product. It's a simple way to communicate that the food is designed to remind the eater thinking of tuna. Same with plant milks or meatless meat. It's the fastest way to communicate what the product is meant to be used for.

    These are really good! Nice serving size for 200 calories. My favorite was the morning jump. Loved the mix of almond blueberries and chocolate. They are like chocolate nut clusters but have added protein (8g per pack). I liked them a lot more than I expected. I ate 4 packs at once they were so good, lol.

    I got them free with rebate on amazon! Definitely worth trying for free.
  • Noreenmarie1234Noreenmarie1234 Member Posts: 5,185 Member Member Posts: 5,185 Member
    They are offering free rebate via visa gift card after item ships when you purchase on amazon :smiley: I just ordered yesterday and got my gift card today!

    Not sure if this is new but it was new to me. Hubby is not a fan of cauliflower but I told him it was cheesy and he could have a glass of wine with the calories we saved on rice. We both ended up liking it.

    I'm really not trying to explain anything to you like you're five, so I apologize for that. I'm more trying to understand what kind of marketing wouldn't raise ire from non-vegans here.

    A new to me product: smoked salt

    How come no said anything!?

    I had some today on salted caramel ice cream (Natrel's lactose-free brand) and I was very pleased with the state of the universe. I have also tried it with caramel toffee. Perhaps using it for non-dessert food is in order too?

    Apparently available on Amazon, I got my box at the local farmer's market a few weeks ago.
