The Laziest Vegans Top Ten Asks Jess Scone

If you don’t know who Jess Scone is you are clearly a Vegan without an internet connection. Her blog Get Sconed covers her kitchen adventures in Vegan heaven Portland, Oregon. When she’s not busy in her own kitchen, Jess is out sampling food from food carts and restaurants, and reviewing them on Stumptown Vegans. But her awesomeness doesn’t end there - Jess also organizes the Vegan Iron Chef Competition, a food battle to end all food battles. And this year she is one of the organizers of Vida Vegan Con, which I have been graciously asked to attend. Vida Vegan is shaping up to be THE Vegan event of the year. Now, after all these achievements, Jess answers the call of a lifetime...the Laziest Vegans Top Ten!
What is your favorite veggie burger?
Well, it’s been years and you can’t find them in the Northwest, but
Soy Boy Okarara Courage Burgers seriously used to be one of my food groups during my young vegan college days. I loved their dense, salty texture. I also have a soft spot for the original Sunshine Burgers - mostly because they’re green inside.

What is you favorite frozen dinner?
I have to be honest, frozen food that isn’t vegan ice cream usually creeps me out and this is very new to me, but baked Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders + some sweet and spicy mustard are sure tasty and easy to make (although pricey)!

What is your favorite ice cream?
So Delicious Cherry Nirvana is high up there.

What is your favorite chip or cracker?
It’s been a while, but I think the Eco Planet nooch crackers are great. Plus, they’re cutesy and probably made for children, and that’s what I really look for in a cracker.

What is your favorite cereal?
I can’t even remember the last time I ate cereal, so I’ll say Peanut Butter Panda Puffs, or anything else you can make into a marshmallow krispie bar.

What is your favorite candy?
Totally Sour Straws.

What is your favorite cookie?
Favorite Homemade = The chocolate chip cookie recipe from Vegan Cookies Take Over the World.
Favorite Store-bought = Peppermint Candy Cane Joe Joe’s.
Favorite Local Cookie = the giant white chocolate chip cookies from Back to Eden Bakery.

What three pre-packaged food items would you take to a desert island?
Wayfare Hickory Cheese spread, Lily’s Smoked Tomato hummus and a never-ending bag of tortilla chips.

Name a product you would like Veganized?
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Wait? What? Then the bright green, mini chocolate chip filled Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream from Carvel.

What are your favorite local and/or online stores for Vegan products?
Food Fight! Vegan Grocery, New Seasons Market & Peoples Coop.

And that concludes The Laziest Vegans Top Ten. Thanks Jess!
