I was familiar with the name Tofurky but not product’s taste. I just recently found a Thanksgiving tofu turkey at a local grocery store along with Tofurky Deli Slices. While the name Tofurky comes from the combination of tofu and turkey, don’t think Tofurky tastes like tofu. Tofurky brand Deli Slices vegetarian products come in a variety of flavors including Pepperoni, Italian, Philly-Style Steak vegetarian deli slices, and more. Here’s my associated content review of Tofurky Deli Slices Oven Roasted Flavor.
Review of Tofurky Deli Slices Oven Roasted Flavor : Packaging Recyclability
A 5.5 oz (156g) package of Tofurky Deli Slices Oven Roasted Flavor, ultra-thin sliced was purchased at Trader Joe’s for $2.29. I have also found this product at Giant. Packaging of these vegetarian deli slices is typical of other vegetarian deli slices. The product comes sealed in shrink-wrap plastic enclosed in a narrow cardboard or paperboard type box. Their box is 100% recycled paperboard printed with low VOC inks. My curbside recycling takes the shrinkwrap and the box. As stated in my other associated content articles, package recyclability is something I consider to be important when purchasing products.

Review of Tofurky Deli Slices Oven Roasted Flavor : Taste
How do Tofurky Deli Slices compare to turkey in texture? The texture of some vegetarian deli slices is different from meat deli slices but the now more thinly sliced Tofurky Deli Slices come closer to that of meat deli slices compared to other vegetarian deli slices. Also, they’re moist, not dry like turkey can sometimes be.
How do Tofurky Deli Slices Oven Roasted Flavor compare to turkey in taste? Many vegetarian deli slices are good on sandwiches, some are good straight out of the package; Tofurky Deli Slices are one of them. Although they are vegetarian, the flavor is much like turkey meat. I like these vegan deli slices on whole wheat bread or rye with mustard and other sandwich toppings. If you’re looking to try vegetarian deli slices, Tofurky Deli Slices are a good place to start.
Review of Tofurky Deli Slices Oven Roasted Flavor : Storage
In the refrigerator, vegetarian deli slices sometimes don’t store for much over a week after being opened. They can be stored longer frozen. They seem to freeze pretty well and defrost fairly quickly, but are hard to peel apart when frozen. You can separate them into individual servings and store in Ziploc type bags (which are recyclable). Store bags in the freezer to reuse. I can easily finish a package within a week with no need to freeze unless I have more than one flavor opened at a time.
Tofurky Deli Slices Oven Roasted Flavor are a great cholesterol free alternative to turkey meat for sandwiches. If you prefer a low cholesterol meat alternative or prefer not to eat meat, Tofurky Deli Slices are a delicious alternative. I like that Tofurky Deli Slices contains organic tofu. I would buy them again and would like to try more Tofurky products.
