Tofurky news

Even though there's so many vegetarian turkey substitutes to choose from these days, long-time vegetarians, such as myself, will always have a special place in our hearts for the original Tofurky. At least during the holidays. Besides being the first commercially-available vegetarian Thanksgiving product, no other vegetarian product has ever had the same pop-cultural significance - whether as the butt of sitcom jokes or as the inspiration for other mock meats - as Tofurky has, and, no other mock meat product has ever been it's own soda flavor.

Yes, you read that correctly, it's not a typo. I said soda flavor.

This year, Tofurky will be for sale at 2000 more locations than last year, including Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and, for the first time ever, all Safeway locations nationwide. In addition, this holiday season will mark the sale of the 3 millionth Tofurky sold and eaten in the United States. Three millionth!

So, no matter what graces your vegetarian holiday table this year, whether it's a Tofurky, a homemade tofu turkey loaf, a pumpkin pizza or a stuffed squash, let's all raise our virtual glasses in congratulations to Tofurky.

Happy Tofurky day, my fellow veggies!
