Bought it just to try Jackfruit, and while we may not be the best fans of jackfruit, we are amazed at how this company made it taste like pulled chicken. Great buy!

New favorite fake meat

I ordered each flavor and I’m obsessed with this product. I had never tried jackfruit or even heard of it as a meat substitute but it’s now my favorite and I would highly recommend. I mad nachos for my boyfriend and his buddies and non of them had any idea that they were completely vegan. I love this product and will definitely be repurchasing

Could have fooled me

The Jackfruit seemed to have the texture of pork to me. And that was fine. The bbq seasoning was too strong for me. I tried to tone it down with butter and rice.

I enjoyed this brand of Jackfruit and I’ve tried many versions aside from fresh! The flavor is amazing and it’s definitely worth a try if you’ve never had it. Take the plunge!

I added some vegan brown sugar and apple cider vinegar to give a little bit more sweet and acidic flavor. Easy to heat and eat
