4. Field Roast Fruffalo Wings

These crave-worthy plant-based bites by Field Roast rival any animal-based wing, in both taste and texture. Just be sure to have some vegan ranch nearby, these snacks are seriously spicy! For a more mild spread, go for the mini corn dogs; they are equally as delicious, without the burn.

6. Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit

What’s the secret to mastering the texture of traditional pulled pork? Jackfruit. This colossal somewhat alien-looking fruit magically transforms into succulent plant-based pulled pork when cooked and seasoned. Upton’s Naturals has embraced the versatility of the jackfruit to create meaty substitutes to satisfy any palate. For a Texan-worthy pulled pork sandwich, go for the barbecue variety.

8. The Abbot’s Butcher Chorizo

There is a plethora of vegan chorizo on the market, but The Abbot’s Butcher has won over the stomachs of vegans and self-proclaimed carnivores alike. The slightly spicy grounds have just enough kick without being overpowering, and the product’s texture is spot-on to its pork-based counterpart. Further, unlike many chorizos (animal-based or otherwise), it is savory without being too oily.

9. Gardein Golden Fishless Filet

Gardein was one of the first vegan companies to really shine with its incredible meat-like products. When the world of plant-based meat was defined by mushy veggie burgers and spongy mock meat, the company gained attention with its crispy, slightly addictive chicken fingers and saucy beefless bites. Gardein makes a wide range of products, but if you’re in the mood for fish and chips, their Golden Fishless Filets will hit the spot.

10. Yves Veggie Cuisine Deli Slices
