I love it when Vegan products are obvious about it! Lately I've noticed a rise of products that actually say "Vegan" on them. When Trader Joe's started putting "V" on all eligible items in the store, it felt like a big step. Some companies were hiding the fact they were Vegan to not dissuaded non-Vegans from buying their stuff. Well, you can't get any more blatant than calling your product Vegan Pockets. I came upon these at out Akin's Natural Foods Market and I had to have one. Best name ever!
You get two 5 ounce Vegan Pockets in a box. I got the Chipotle Fiesta flavor, but there is also Orient Express, Back to Our Roots and Taste of Italy. They're pretty easy to make, throw one in the microwave for 2 minutes and you're done. I thought it tasted pretty healthy due to the whole wheat flour crust, which isn't a bad thing. I had one for lunch today and it filled me up. Being stuffed with potatoes, black beans, tomatoes, corn, onions, brown rice and bell pepper makes Vegan Pockets very hearty. There was a bit of spice but nothing crazy hot. I like that they are not huge, and the size is totally portable. The whole point of a pocket is to be able to eat one on the run and Vegan Pockets are perfect in that regard. Love the name and I can't wait to try the other flavors!
