From hot dogs and chicken tenders to maple-smokehouse bacon, “meaty” vegan proteins have PopSugar excited.

Popular lifestyle website PopSugar recently named the eight best vegan meats “that will fool diehard meat eaters.” The website, which reaches more than 100 million people globally, gave first mention to Gardein’s “finger-lickin’ good” Seven Grain Crispy Tenders, which the site said rivals KFC’s Extra Crispy Tenders “in a heartbeat.” Lightlife Organic Fakin’ Bacon Tempeh Strips was praised for its maple-smokehouse flavor and use of organic, non-GMO soybeans, while Beyond Meat’s Beast Burger was called “The Ultimate Veggie Burger.” Furthermore, Lightlife scored a second mention for its Jumbo Smart Dogs, and Tofurky’s versatile Oven-Roasted Deli Slices were suggested for an integral part for an office lunch or for an “ultimate leftover Thanksgiving sandwich.” Gardein bookended the list of meat-free picks with its Classic Meatless Meatballs thanks to its easy preparation and 15 grams of protein.
