Sooooo, I haven’t made anything very interesting lately. I’m working on a new jackfruit recipe, but until then, thought I’d take you on a tour of Food Fight! Grocery. This is my favorite place to shop when I’m in Portland. The first time I went it reminded me of a little gas station convenience store, complete with pay-by-weight nachos and a vegan nacho cheese pump! I wish they would bring that back. But anyway, there are a million other things to try. I shared a little something with you last year, but this time I tried to take pictures of everything.
Being in a place like this makes you feel like a normal person. Ya know, instead of feeling so…vegan :)
Tons of fancy cheeses. The Chao is a bit expensive compared to Whole Foods, but still cheaper than Harvest Health Foods here in Grand Rapids.
A bunch of meat substitutes ranging from major brands you can find almost anywhere, to random stuff I normally only see at the Asian market.
Frozen pizza, hot pockets, TV dinners.
MOAR vegan meats!
I did not know these existed. Next time I promise I’ll try them!
Corn dogs! Mac n Cheese Strudel!!!
I always see Alpendough on What Fat Vegans Eat, I wanted to try every flavor. I didn’t have time :(
So. Many. Cheez sauces.
At least 7 kinds of vegan jerky here.
Cookies. Cotton Candy. Marshmallow treats.
Four kinds of boxed mac n cheese. I’ve tried all but one now!
I’m dying. I only really had 2 full days to eat, and no checked bag to bring liquid-type stuff home, or this aged nut cheese sauce would’ve been mine!
I haven’t yet found veggie haggis in Grand Rapids.
So this was my tiny haul – and the croissant (filled with pizza toppings) and Charlie Brown bar in the foreground actually came from Sweetpea Baking Co.
From Food Fight I grabbed Tofurky pockets, mac n cheese strudel, pizza-flavored mac n cheese from So Delicious, a couple bags of $1 snack thingies, two kinds of fancy cheese, Sweet & Sara graham crackers, a caramel, and a wonderful all-natural vegan deodorant by Schmidt’s (btw, it’s the best deodorant I’ve ever used).
I couldn’t stop eating these things. I put them in tacos and filled them with cheese…think I have pictures of that somewhere.
Speaking of cheese. It was a really sad day when I had to go home and leave a bunch of this in my BFF’s fridge because it was opened and wouldn’t have made it past TSA. I ate as much as I possibly could. Next time I’ll try harder.
Would you pay $25 to check a bag just so you can bring special treats home?
