I may not be vegan, or vegetarian for that matter, but I love dabbling in new and interesting takes on food. So when these Plant-Based Pockets from Tofurky came across my radar, I immediately perked up.
“Our Pockets have been in development for years, and we are very excited to bring them back to market now with national distribution,” said Jaime Athos, CEO of Tofurky. “When the weather cools down, we all crave a little comfort food, and these melty, toasty Ham & Ched’ar, Turk’y, Broccoli & Ched’ar, and Pepp’roni Pizza Pockets are hitting shelves just in time to provide a warm, convenient plant-based meal that’s ready in minutes.”
So, what has changed? It looks like the Pocket is now made with a heartier, whole wheat crust that encapsulates the savory plant-based proteins and gooey vegan cheese inside. Let’s not forget the chef-crafted Pockets are 100 percent non-GMO, vegan, and use organic, locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible. It’s like a hand-held pie, full of wholesome goodness, that’s miraculously landed in consumers’ laps just in time for fall and winter. The calzone-shaped pockets may have a few minor tweaks to the recipe, but they still deliver an amazing flavor.
“They have been in development for years, and Tofurky is excited to roll them out now for national distribution,” Jaime continues. “These warm and toasty ‘comfort foods’ are an easy and delicious way to indulge in nostalgic flavors while making a positive impact on people, animals, and the planet.
Suffice it to say, I’ve already worked through the Turk’y Broccoli & Ched’ar Pocket and can’t wait to dive into the other two. The Pockets are available nationwide at $3.49 each in all three flavors. And, as a Certified Benefit Corporation, Tofurky puts purpose before profits and reinvests in a wide variety of environmental initiatives, advocates for animal welfare, and invests in its community.
