Amazon Prime Now For Vegans

The Scruff Muffin checks out my latest Amazon Prime Now delivery. So, this has been an …. interesting … summer. It started with a freak accident that had my car unexpectedly becoming best friends with a stranger’s tree. The car would need some bodywork, but miraculously I was unharmed. (Or so I thought.

Harold & Kumar Go Vegan … Review of White Castle Vegan Frozen Sliders

Harold and Kumar is a classic stoner movie from 2004 – that some critics have said, “make Cheech and Chong look lame.” It follows the adventures of Harold Lee and Kumar Patel after they smoke a joint, get the munchies, and head off to White Castle.

Let It Bleed (Or Not) … Impossible Burger & Duckworth’s Review, Part Deux

In a previous post, I wrote a detailed review of the Impossible Burger and one of the few places to find it in Charlotte, NC – Duckworth’s. My review of the Impossible Burger was mostly positive.

You Gotta Have Buns, Hon … Impossible Burger Review At Duckworth’s Park Road

For the past six months or so, seems like all the vegan buzz has been about The Impossible Burger. It’s the “burger that bleeds!” It’s the burger that has the appearance, texture, and taste of “real beef“! It’s better than the Beyond Burger! Or – no, it’s not??? It’s dietarily vegan – unless, of course, it’s… Read More ›

Product Review: Amy’s No-Chicken Noodle Soup

It wouldn’t be a review of canned and boxed soups to eat while sick without Amy’s iconic No-Chicken Noodle Soup. One of the very first soups in Amy’s line of canned soups, No Chicken Noodle has long been a vegan fave and has legions of fans. There’s also a few who vehemently don’t like this… Read More ›

Product Review: Amy’s Split Pea Soup

It’s a lovely summer we’re having this winter! After Charlotte’s typically chilly January, February brought us temps in the 70’s – even the upper 70’s – almost every day, with some cooler nights. I believe the change from warm to cold, and alternating between heat and air conditioning, plays a part in all the colds… Read More ›

Product Review: Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Rolls with Pumpkin Spice Icing

Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Rolls with Pumpkin Spice Icing are a very well executed cross between cinnamon rolls and pumpkin spice pastries.
