This is quite good. If you boil it in a lot of water, it will also be very watery and kind of lose its taste, but the taste itself is actually quite good. I think it might be good to "fry" them in a pan after softening them (maybe with other foods) to get rid of some of the water and give even more taste. I also like that it has a long shelf life. Will probably be buying again in the future.
And very versatile! Boil 10 minutes in vegeteable broth, drain and add to a frying pan on high heat for 5 minutes. Add seasoning and enjoy with pasta, in baked potato or pizza. The taste itself doesn`t taste much, but you can make it taste whatever you like with the seasoning of your choice. I also think the price is very reasonable! Highly recommended nuggets!
Why is this discontinued?

I'm so sad to see that this is discointinued, I really loved these, they gave you a lot more to chew on than regular tsp. If you're a vegan/vegetarian and miss the taste of meat, it was easy to make these look like and taste like chicken/pork. I really hope you'll bring them back :(
Who needs meat?!

In tacos or spaghetti this makes you forget what ground beef was. I use earth balance, and olive oil to give it that 'meaty' flavor, and the texture is great.
Will buy again

I made tacos using these nuggets instead of meat and they were delicious. I don't think the soy nuggets taste of anything, but if you boil them in broth and add spices, they turn out great. I fried them with onions after boiling and the result was very tasty. I will buy them again, they are so versatile and with a little seasoning they can be a fancy feast. However, they may absorb a little too much water, so I recommend frying or sautéing after boiling to improve the texture.
Pizza topping...and for samosa...
