Gardein's Golden Fishless Filets Review

I’ve been a vegetarian for about 18 years now. With that, it’s important to note, I have never incorporated meatless meat products into my daily meal planning. Occasionally, I’ll buy something to try, or just a veggie burger so I can fit in at BBQ’s and other functions. But, I’m never overly impressed. I just haven't found much interest in products that try to taste like meat, but completely, and consistently miss the mark. I’d rather have real foods, like actual vegetables that can just be themselves and I love them for what they are.

I got the chance to try Gardein meat-free products. Their meatless products are completely vegan made from Non-GMO soy and wheat, ancient grains and veggies with a good source of Iron and B12. Gluten free products are also available. I chose the vegan Fishless Fish Filets. I’m totally game to try anything at least once. Honestly, the fishless fish intrigued me so much! I’ve never had vegan fish, and I was excited to see how they were going to do it. It seems like a hard thing to copy. And truth be told, I half-expected it to be a flop.

The filets come in a large nugget size and had a decent texture. They weren’t as flaky as actual fish, but still pleasant. They were a bit reminiscent of those fish sticks we all ate as kids. Be honest, this is a safe place, you loved them. I know you’re all fancy adults now, eating grilled salmon and such, but you’d scarf those suckers down if your kid left some on their plate. I know I would, and I don’t even have kids. Which would make that a really awkward moment, stealing fish sticks from a random kid, lol.

Back on topic now. Unlike fish sticks, they aren’t as fishy. There is a subtle, almost fresh fish taste, that are excellent in taco form, which is how I ate them. Love! They would also be awesome on there own, which isn’t something that I can say for other products that I need to cover-up with as many condiments as I have access to.

Overall, I am really impressed with Gardein’s Vegan Fishless Fish Filets, and look forward to trying some of their other options in the near future. I recommend giving Gardein a try if you like giving meatless products a go here-and-there.
