I bought these for stocking stuffers. The recipients threw them out. Taste is terrible and gritty.
I wasn't with my dad to try out these salamis, but he was very clear in his preference for one flavor over the others, stating that he found the paprika and pepper flavors repulsive. However, he loved the walnut! If I could order just that flavor again, I would.
The texture and appearance of these is right on point, but they do not taste anything like dried sausages. They are pretty sweet, they taste like compressed, dried figs. Maybe if they were saltier? That being said, they are delicious in their own right and fill a niche in your vegan/vegetarian cheese plate! I definitely recommend them, just not as a 1:1 substitute for meat.
I will say it's an interesting concept but it missed the mark. The seasoning is mild and the most prominent flavor was sweet fig. Wouldn't purchase again.
Like the salamis. Like to try the unusual. This is a great substitute for meat salamis, healthwise and even better tasting. Eat slices on pita chips, but want to try something else. Would have welcomed suggestions for serving. Yum.
