Target – Sweet Earth – The Curry Tiger Burrito – Food Review

Sweet Earth, curry tiger burrito, food, review, vegan, calories, nutrition, price

July 4, 2017

Normally I limit my food reviews to ALDI and Trader Joe’s products which have a national presence as opposed to many supermarket chains which are more regional in nature.  However I’ve recently discovered these in the “plant-based protein” freezer at Target and was impressed with them.  So here’s a review.  If there’s a Target near you with a grocery section, you might want to check these out.

As noted above, I like these.  Unlike many frozen burrito products which seem to lack texture and flavor, these have both.  There are several types of Sweet Earth burritos which vary slightly by ingredients and spices.  All are reasonably good, but this one stands out because it is the most flavorful and has a bit of a kick to it.  Those are two things I like.

The product is labeled as vegan and “Non GMO Project Verified.”  As a meat substitute it has 19g of protein – not bad.  Most likely due to being wrapped in a flour tortilla, carbohydrates are moderately high at 45g.  It’s surprisingly filling and long-lasting at only 320 calories each.

Calories  320 per burrito (1 serving, 198g)  –  Price $2.99,  $2.50 on sale

Trader Joe’s – Tofurky Italian Sausage – Food Review

It’s not Italian sausage.  BUT, for a meatless meat (yes it’s labeled vegan), it has the texture, if not exactly the taste, of a meat.  The texture is the biggest problem with many meatless meats. They, or we, can always work on how it tastes.  In its own right, it’s fairly good tasting, but on the bland side.

A gob of sticky rice,  a mess, a few green things and a tasty sauce describes this microwave boxed meal.  Trader Joe needs to go back to the drawing board on this one.

This is another fine Indian-style frozen entrée from Trader Joe’s.  At $3.49 it’s a little on the pricey side when compared with other frozen entrées, but not pricey when compared with going out for lunch.
