Jason Das is a Vegan renaissance man. He makes art, he makes music and he makes it easy to be Vegan in NYC. Jason was a founder SuperVegan in the mid-2000s. In case you don't know, SuperVegan is like a Vegan Yelp for the entire city and beyond. He is also a founder of Vegan Drinks, which is a monthly event where Vegans can socialize, network and, uh, drink! I was lucky enough to meet Jason at Vida Vegan Con, where I found out he enjoys the brilliance of the Pet Shop Boys (as I do). Now Jason is here to answer the 10 most pressing questions on every Vegan's mind!
What is your favorite store-bought veggie burger?
Garden Herb flavor Sunshine Burgers. (For meat analog, Morningstar Grillers are the best I've had.)
What is you favorite frozen dinner?
Amy's Mac & Cheeze. Without this stuff I wouldn't even have an answer for this question.
What is your favorite ice cream?
Double Rainbow does the best straight-up ice cream. I'm also a sucker for the So Delicious crazy flavors (like Turtle Tracks and Peanut Butter Zig Zag). I still vastly prefer soy-based ice cream to coconut or nut-based.
What is your favorite chip or cracker?
What is your favorite cereal?
Kashi's Grape Nuts rip-off, "7 Whole Grain Nuggets". I liked them even more when they used to be called "7 in the Morning", which is possibly the worst product name ever.
What is your favorite candy?
If it counts, dark chocolate, the higher the cocoa percentage the better. If that's not candy enough, Sour Patch Kids, though in my old age I can't make it through a pack without passing out from sugar exhaustion.
What is your favorite cookie?
Whole Foods Chocolate Chip. For packaged, Liz Lovely Cowboy Cookies.
What three pre-packaged food items would you take to a desert island?
Apricot Clif Bars, Chocolate Peanut Butter Clif Bars, and Hickory Smoked Primal Strips.
Name a product you would like Veganized?
Whipping cream, hand-beatable and unsweetened like the dairy kind.
What are your favorite local and/or online stores for Vegan products?
I pretty much only shop at the Park Slope Food Coop.
And that concludes The Laziest Vegans Top Ten. Thanks Jason!
