The Tofurky verdict...
I had originally intended to take the prepared Tofurky Feast to my sister's place for our post-Christmas dinner; I wanted my very large, very omnivorous family to share their thoughts. Unfortunately, owing to the snowstorm that blanketed the Philadelphia region on December 26, I ended up feasting on the Tofurky dinner solo. Before I give my verdict, full disclosure: I never really had a "meat tooth," even when I was not a vegetarian. So, as a veg, not surprisingly, I'm not into fake meats...
This said, if you like the taste of turkey, then you will undoubtedly love Tofurky. The texture is eeerily similar to that of turkey, and the savory stuffing enhanced and heightened the flavor. I especially enjoyed sandwiches I made with the leftovers. The Tofurky Jerky "wishbone" was a fun add-on for kids.
While the Tofurky itself was tasty, I'm sorry to report that I thought the dumplings were, well...inedible. And unfortunately, the gravy was not much better. For this reason, I thought the Tofurky Feast was a bit overpriced. On the upside, it's wonderful that alternative meals like these exist. I'm sure they will keep getting better and better.
