I have not seen Gardenburgers at the supermarket (Walmart, Target, Meijer, and Krogers).  Are they still available in your area?

We get them all the time at Meijer and Kroger (in Kentucky).

Kroger even had a recent sale on all of the Morningstar Farms stuff (not sure if it was regional) where everything was $2 a box (normally ~$4).  That sale prompted us to buy a chest freezer smile

I'm not sure.  I only eat burgers made of red meat, screw that turkey/tofu/cardboard substitute stuff!

My wife eats bogus burgers. We can get either Boca or Morningstar brands. She likes the black-bean versions.

They are readily available in nearly all stores here in Colorado, but Boca Burgers seem to becoming more popular and are equally available.  One of our favorite ways to eat them is the murder burger way: with thick sliced yummy bacon on top!   drool

Yeah when I had a vegetarian stint I much prefered the Boca and Morning Star stuff.  Especially Morning Star Farms.  Their veggie buffalo wings are really damn good even for meat eaters.

Oh, I guess I should elaborate.  smile

We find them in most of the grocery stores that we go into, Gardenburgers, Boca, Morningstar among others.  Do you have a place like Whole Foods or Central Market?  I'm almost positive that Central Market may be a Texas only deal, not so sure about Whole Foods.  If not, see if there is a grocery store that specializes in health food like the two I mentioned previously in your area.

I prefer the Morningstar black bean patties myself.  I normally don't eat much beef anymore, and that usually hits the spot when I crave a healthier burger than Whataburger.

Whole Foods is here in the northwest area, and they indeed have gardenburgers.

That said, I MUUUCH prefer Boca.  The spicy chick'n (which I think they've discontinued or something...) was amazing.

Morningstar gives me the shits.

There's a brand (I can't think of the name) that comes in an orange box, and they have some chicken stuff that I swear tastes and has the texture of chicken.  My wife used to eat it all the time before I converted her to the real thing.

Quorn?

It's tasty and I dig their "chicken" nuggets and tenders.  The "chicken" patties for some reason tend to have occasional odd textures.  It's almost like getting a surprise onion in the middle of a meal where you aren't expecting it.  I'm not a big fan of the texture of onion, so it's probably just a personal issue.

The "turkey" is also pretty good.

What really needs to happen to Quorn is for the company to get bought out by a mega-corporation so that they can extend their product line.  Morningstar Farms was bought a few years back by Kraft and shortly after that you started seeing all of the new patty flavors and other things like their Meal Starters.

That's it!  I really liked the "chicken" nuggets.

i wonder if i've ever seen them that cheap. being vegetarian and a former meat-devourer, i live off the stuff. being that this is Seattle, they're available *everywhere and prices range from $3 (Trader Joes) to almost $5 (Whole Paycheck, PCC and other co-ops). you'd think with the higher rate of consumption, they'd be a bit less expensive, but noooooo... stupid cost of living.

They had the $2 deal in Phoenix as well. The sausage patties are fantastic.
