It's All Good? Tempeh-tations? How about no.

So, in my never-ending quest to find delicious, easy pre-packaged nutritionally sound vegan food (funny, all my experimentation with pre-packaged food is really making me excited to MAKE MY OWN), I stumbled across two new products at Whole Foods recently. I'll spoil the article for you. I don't know who names these new products, but I am *certain* that he or she did not actually try them before naming them. See below for descriptions and recommendations for substiutes that are edible.

It's All Good: BBQ Skewers (1 out of 5)

I'll be honest with you. I bought both kinds of it's all good meat, the BBQ Beef Skewers and Chicken Good Stuff (black bean and corn), but after opening and trying the BBQ Beef, I am really reticent to try the chicken ones, even though they were kind of expensive. Yes, the Beef skewers were that bad.

Taking them out of the package, they are like most other fake meat products. That is to say, somewhat unappetizing. Despite that, I soldiered on. Firstly, I'll admit that I cooked them in an oven, not in a pan. All I can say is gross gross gross and we will leave it at this:
