«Why do I find the V-Love nuggets so awesome? They have just the right consistency – crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. These are the best veggie nuggets I’ve tried so far. And believe me, there were many…”

Festivo smoked stick

  • 2.95 Fr. at Coop
  • Grade from Sina: 5.75 (there is a deduction for the form)

Planted Pulled BBQ

  • Is Markus Fischer’s favorite meat substitute
  • 6.95 Fr. at Coop
  • Grade from Markus: 5.5 (if it were organic, a 6)

«Thanks to the fine marinade and the al dente structure, the product is ideal for refining curries or as an ingredient for fajitas. I’ve been a big fan of their products since Planted was founded, especially in combination with the delicious marinades. The only downside is that the ingredients are not certified organic.»

V-Love Burger

  • Is Peter Blunschi’s favorite meat substitute product

Outlawz Jerky

  • Is Patrick Toggweiler’s favorite meat substitute
  • 4.95 at Coop
  • Note: 5.25
