Pleasant Surprise


I just opened the freezer in my workplace’s kitchen and spotted a box of vegan veggie burgers.

And they weren’t mine.

The mind reels!

    At my work (filled with *very* omnivorous midwesterners), the last 5 years has seen soy milk enter the fridges and now it’s beating cow’s milk 2 to 1. Pretty cool, eh?

    this is great. I was thrilled when I found out that there was another veg*n in my office.

    i’d just be psyched for another vegetarian. As opposed to the kind that says they are but eats fish and such.

    Vicariously I share your happiness. I remember how my heart lept when soymilk first took up permanent residence in our company fridge. Was it unethical of me to move it to a slightly more prominent position?

    Gary – nah, that’s not unethical… that’s being a crafty activist. :-)

    Im in college and so I’m not in the office setting yet, But in my dorm there are a bunch of vegans and I’m so excited because we always eat together. Although it is a bit challenging to find vegan or vegetarian items in the mess hall, a bunch of my friends parents send them veggie burgers etc. One of my friends even orders these cases of vegan entrees from this online company called Five Star Foodies. I think there called turkey rolls and you can order them off their website. They are scrumdiliumcious and we are addicted!!

    I know this is only loosely connected, but on the theme of Pleasant Surprise and the spread/adoption of vegan foods, here’s a piece I did for my paper about finding a surprising number of vegan menu items in town in non-vegetarian restaurants.

    That’s awesome. Whenever there are company-wide lunches at work, they never order any vegetarian/vegan food for the few of us; however, we got a mass email about the vegetarian option being offered during lent for the Catholics. hilarious!
