Product Review: Aunt Trudy’s Vegan Mushroom & Leek Fillo Pocket

I ran across Aunt Trudy’s Vegan Mushroom & Leek Fillo Pocket a couple of weeks ago at my local Hannaford. It’s always exciting to me when I find something vegan for lunches, so I picked up several of them.

I must admit, I was excited to try this sandwich for dinner – I love leeks and mushrooms, and the picture on the package made it look fabulous. Unfortunately, that was not at all how it turned out… It pretty much looked like a big sloppy mess. The fillo dough practically disintegrated, and the inside was dark green/brown mush.

It was unappetizing enough that I almost didn’t eat it after all. But I decided to at least try it. Which was a mistake. It was not good. It wasn’t horrible, but it was barely acceptable. And I have really low standards for food. I eat everything! Needless to say, I had a few bites, then stopped.

All was not lost, however. I had some fabulous Haagen Daaz mango sorbet in the freezer, so I had that for dinner. 🙂

Verdict: Meh. I wouldn’t try this variety again.
