PRODUCT REVIEW – PIG OUT Vegan Whole Grain Bacony Bits

Growing-up in an omnivorous household I definitely had my share of BLTs and I LOVED them. ¬†The funny thing is that I never liked real BLTs…that is BLTs with “real” bacon. ¬†The BLTs I grew-up on were made with imitation bacon bits.

Wayfare debuted their new PIG OUT (such a clever name) whole grain bacony bits at this year’s Natural Products Expo West and they did not¬†disappoint this imitation-bacon-flavor-loving gal. ¬†If you are expecting a direct substitute for slices of bacon, these are not for you, however if you share my taste for imitation bits you will be in love. ¬†I made a quick sandwich with two slices of toasted Sami’s Bakery’s Millet Bread (our favorite gfree bread), some soy-free Vegenaise, tomato, lettuce, pepper, and a scattering of Pig Out…this served as lunch 3 days that week!

WARNING – Pig Out is NOT gluten-free.

While we are on the subject of Wayfare, I feel compelled to tell you about their wonderfully cheesy products as well. ¬†The recently sent me some samples to try and I can say that I am definitely a fan of their¬†We Can’t Say It’s Cheeses which are perfect for dipping or drizzling over nachos. ¬†The¬†Mexi Cheddar-Style Dip tops the list for me. ¬†I tend to prefer their cheeses for use as dips vs. using them for grilled cheese / pizzas, etc.

My kids also really like their puddings for occasional treats (My daughter’s fav is the chocolate and my son loves the butterscotch).

Unfortunately I am not a huge fan of their sour cream as I prefer a creamier and tangier sour cream, but that is the only product they make that I feel is lacking.

If you haven’t tried Wayfare’s products yet, please do give them a try.
